MS, LCSW, Certified Gottman Therapist
Founder & Director of The Long Island Couples Institute

Based on 18 years of working with couples, clinical training, and The Gottman Institute’s 40+ years of research, I believe that good practice is based on scientifically supported interventions.

The Gottman Institute’s research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict and create ways to support each other’s hopes for the future. Drs. John and Julie Gottman have shown how couples can accomplish this by paying attention to what they call the Sound Relationship House, or the nine components of healthy relationships.
