The Keys to a

Great Relationship

Our Counseling Programs

No matter what kind of relationship you find yourself in, there is always work that needs to be done. Let us help show you practical solutions and tools that will help develop your relationship into a "power couple"!

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work (Revised Edition) is the culmination of Dr. Gottman’s lifelong work: an overview of the concepts, behaviors and skills that guide couples on the path toward a harmonious and long-lasting relationship.


These research-based Bringing Baby Home workshops prepare couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, parents learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this challenging time.


The future of relationship assessment is here. Created by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, The Gottman Relationship Checkup automatically scores a relationship’s strengths and challenges and provides specific recommendations for intervention.


Developed from over 40 years of scientific research by Dr. John Gottman, this relationship assessment tool relies on intensive, detailed, and evidence-based information on why relationships succeed or fail.
