Certified Gottman Relationship Therapist

Louisville, Kentucky

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Serving Families, Couples, & Individuals since 1997

Certified Gottman Therapist

From the first appointment, you will begin to pinpoint what specifically is hampering you as a couple and will learn skills to start turning your relationship toward the better.

To learn more about Gottman Method Couples Counseling, please go to my “Gottman Therapy” page.

Also, my “In The Media” page features both radio and television programs that address couple longevity. A recent Anderson Cooper show featured John Gottman on making relationships work. I am seen interviewing the couple using the Gottman Assessment. The radio program features Corey Dylan, a Fox radio host. We discuss research on relationships and Gottman couples therapy.

I have been serving families, couples and individuals since 1997 in Louisville, Kentucky and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. While I specialize in couples therapy, I also enjoy working with individuals and helping families with children of various ages.

I am very dedicated to my clients, and I think you will feel my care for you from the moment our time together begins. I strive for a nonjudgmental mindfulness in my life and practice. You (all that you are...and all that you "are not yet") are welcome here.

I am a Gottman Certified Relationship Therapist, having trained extensively with Drs. John & Julie Gottman, who are known worldwide for their groundbreaking research and insights into what works in couples therapy (Visit to learn more about what sets this method apart from other non-research based therapies). I am the only Gottman Certified Relationship Therapist between the cities of Nashville and Cincinnati. The Gottman method is very solution-focused and incredibly hope-giving in its applicability.
