Certified Gottman Therapist

I am so happy to share that I am now a Certified Gottman Therapist! I started my training journey in February of 2017 where I took my level 1 training with John Gottman in Nashville. John is such a captivating speaker I scheduled my level 2 training with Don Cole in November of 2017 in Raleigh before I went home. After that I took level 3 with Don and Carrie Cole in Houston in 2018 and completed the Art and Science of Love with John and Julie Gottman in 2019 in Seattle. I entered the certification track November of 18 and began my journey of consultation with a very knowledgeable and encouraging consultant, Don Cole. My growth as a clinician the last few years has been tremendous and I enjoy my work as a couples specialist. At times it feels I have gained another graduate degree and I am excited to continue to keep learning.
