The Seven Principles for Making Marriages Work”

is a workshop that can make that happen.

The Seven Principles Program for couples is a workshop based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr. John Gottman as presented in his New York Times Bestselling Book

What the workshop is not:

What are for formats and costs:

There are two typical formats – one day/six hour and three, two hour evening sessions.

The cost, for the six hour model varies depending upon the number of participants and will be no more than $200.00 for each couple, plus the cost of materials. Snacks will be provided and, for the one day format, lunch will be on your own. There are two types of book sets I can order for you and they range from $39-69.00. All cost can be paid with installments as well if that would allow you to be a part of this experience. If this cost is difficult to manage....please speak with me.
