Welcome to the Seven Principles Workshop!

Our Next Workshop is: Sunday, November 4, 2018, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, registration opens at 9:00 am

  • Have you been feeling that your partner is just a roommate?
  • Do you fight about the same thing over and over and over again?
  • Can you remember the last time you went out on a date?
  • Were you thinking about therapy but not ready for the time or financial commitment?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this training is for you. Let’s talk about the training and see if this is what you’ve needed in your relationship?



This will not be some dry, boring lecture. It’s going to be interactive and fun. You’ll be sitting with your partner, you’ll watch a few videos, see some examples on how to do the exercises and you will find a cozy spot (no worries there are tons of them) to spend about 10-15 minutes working with your partner. When we come back together as a group, we’ll discuss our thoughts on the exercises, again no worries about privacy, I won’t ask you directly what you were talking about or what you gained. I’ll be there for support, encouragement, maybe a little cheerleading and to help guide you through the process.

I really want to give everyone enough time to talk, laugh, do the exercises and learn so I’m going to limit this workshop to 10 couples. I’ll be offering them every 3 to 6 months so if you’re thinking about it now please sign up because spots are going to fill up quickly.

If you want to ask me questions directly, please do. I’m here to answer your questions, get to know you better and welcome you to this wonderful workshop that will help you improve your relationship.


  • You are in a relationship, living together, getting married, married or anything in between
  • You want to work to improve your relationship
  • You’ve been fighting more recently
  • You’re looking for new ways to reconnect and rekindle


  • You are in a relationship with severe problems, significant emotional or physical abuse
  • You are in a relationship where who one or both partners have an addiction or substance abuse problem
  • You have serious emotional or mental health problems

If you fall into any of theses categories and you are wondering if this workshop is for you, please let’s discuss your situation. I recommend you reach out to me directly to find out if you are a good fit.


The Gottman Seven Principles

The Seven Principles Program will give you new insights and research-based relationship skills that can dramatically improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship and help you resolve conflict in a healthy, productive way. This class combines teaching and demonstrations with one-on-one work sessions where you and your partner focus on your relationship with each other. Confidentiality is strictly maintained. Although we encourage questions and comments, you do not need to speak in the workshop if you do not want.


  • Learn to be best friends again!
  • Learn to notice the good instead of the bad
  • Learn to notice when your partner is making an effort and how to react
  • Learn how to accommodate each other’s needs without sacrificing your own
  • Learn how to find solutions to those “everyday” problems that couples fight over
  • Learn how to connect on a deeper level


  • Q: Will I have to share our personal problems with the class? 
    A: No. The class does not include sharing problems or issues publicly. Couples exercises are done privately.
  • Q: Must both partners attend or can I come alone? 
    A: Since the class involves couples doing exercises together, both partners must participate
  • Q: Myself and/or my partner isn’t a reader. Can we still come to the class even if we haven’t read the book? 
    A: Yes, you’re encouraged to come to the class. While the book provides valuable information, the class lectures explain the content of the book. Each person will be provided with a couple’s guide as part of your workshop packet and we will go through the material together.
  • Q: Should we do the exercises in the book at home or save them for class? 
    A: The class will involve doing some exercises from the book so doing them at home will duplicate some of them. We won’t be completing all the exercises in the book so you are encouraged to complete the remainder of the exercises on your own.
  • Q: Is this therapy? 
    A: No, this is a psycho-educational class and is not a replacement for couples therapy. You will learn skills but will not be talking about private moments in your life.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to ask me anything. I’m here to answer your questions and I’m very excited to get to know you better.


On the day of the course, you will receive a copy of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and a workbook to use during the class. Yes, we will be working through the book to make this fun and useful to you.
