Welcome to Sonoma Couples Workshops
A Place for Couples Therapy, Couples Workshops, and Professional Training
Our main goal is to strengthen and repair committed couples relationships. We are pleased to provide the Art and Science of Love, a workshop for couples, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and professional training. All of the services that we provide are based on the scientific findings of John Gottman, Ph. D. who has studied over 3,000 couples in the past four decades to discover what makes couples stable and happy. We are licensed psychotherapists who have been personally trained and certified by Drs. John and Julie Gottman to provide these services. We are also proud members of the Gottman Institute. We urge all committed couples to consider attending our vital workshop in the beautiful Sonoma Wine Country.
What Is Different About Our Couples Workshops
In our weekend workshops, our partners (Marcia's husband, Mario, and Mike's wife, Robynne) collaborate with us to demonstrate, with real life examples, how to use the research-based tools that help couples to have a good relationship. We consistently hear from the participants in our workshops how helpful it is for them to see us demonstrate the use of these skills with our partners, and how powerful it is for them to see their workshop presenters exposing their vulnerabilities. We believe in the motto "We are all in this soup together".
