Why the Seven Principle and Couples Communication?

Simply, because they work. 

The Gottman Principles are the foundation of my work with couples.  The Seven Principles Program supports the integration of research and practice in supporting the development of healthy relationships.

Couples Communication does the same.  It's a researched based program to teach communication skills.

I believe in them both.
