Upcoming Dating/Relationship Workshops:

Emotion Coaching Parent Group 9.27.18-12.6.18 Parent Community

Please join the 12 week Emotion Coaching Parent Group!


How much time do we spend learning new skills for our job, and how important is it for us that our kids receive the best of us? Let's take some time out of our busy schedules to learn about and to discuss the concepts from one of the most influential psychologists of our time, about children's emotion coaching.

We'll be a small supportive learning group of parents and we'll meet, discuss relevant articles, talk about individual parenting situations, learn new tools and strategies from each week's theme, and create individualized action plans for each family to explore. The group will be guided by Dr. Julie and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching work and the combined wisdom of the groups' shared knowledge.

Relationships make-up our world.  Everything that we do revolves around our relationships with ourselves and with each other. A happy life means that our relationships are harmonious, balanced and fulfilling.


The good news is that healthy relationship skills can be learned and that the meaningfulness of relationships can be nurtured. I offer ways to do both.

One way

finding and maintaining loving relationships,

and another way
