Additional Professional Information, Opportunities, and Resources:
|"Because of the Level 1 and 2 manuals and DVDs, I was able to walk a couple through a very clear treatment plan. For the first time I saw glimmers of hope from them both. Six months ago I could not have conducted this session. Now I think that, as long as they have the willingness, they also have the chance. I want to thank you for the gift you have given me with your training. I am never more proud of the work I do than when I use the Gottman Method and I look forward to employing it to the best of my ability as long as I practice." ~ D.G., Clinton, IA |
