It’s not just couples therapy, it’s science.

Dr. Dan Siegel has made one of the most exciting scientific discoveries of the last twenty years: how we focus our attention shapes the structure of our brain.  He will masterfully provide an entertaining and clear framework for understanding the human mind and its connection to relationships. In response, the Gottmans will skillfully demonstrate - through live video taped sessions with couples, clinical vignettes, and experiential audience participation - how to interweave mindfulness into your couples work using evidenced-based interventions from Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
