Professional Connections

I took the Level 1 training in the Gottman Method for couples therapy with Dr. Meunier several years ago. I found her to be a very good teacher, as she used case material to illustrate the method in a clear way. She is open, warm, likable, and approachable. I could see that she places a high value on her own relationships, making her a solid guide for others.

Highly skilled and well sought-after couples therapist!
