Keys To a Successful Marriage/Relationship

Master’s of Marriage

 John Gottman is considered a marriage expert,   He has studied thousands of successful couples and documented what it is that these “masters of marriage are doing that attributes to their success.  Here is a list of what components he has found that are important in successful long term relationships.

  • They are gentle with each other.
  • They spend time in and enjoy conversation with each other.
  • They allow for influence by their partner.
  • They do keep score by remembering the good things their partner does for them.
  • Each partner knows themselves reasonably well.
  • Each partner honors the others dreams.
  • There is a positive sense of humor in the relationship.
  • There are shared goals and a sense of team work in the relationship.
  • There are good conflict resolution skills in the relationship.(sometimes this means doing something, and sometimes it means letting things take care of themselves.)
  • There is a sense of continued romance in the relationship.
  • They consider contempt, for the partner, in all it’s forms, as a threat to the marriage and it must be avoided, or worked through.

In his book, The Seven Principles for Making a Marriage Work   Gottman  (and co-author Nan Silver) explain how couples can develop and reinforce the key elements that can help hurting couples to become more satisfied and successful in their marriage.

embrace 1Many people are surprised to find that they begin to notice positive changes from the moment they make their appointment. As a Marriage & Family Therapist registered intern, I pull from a wide range of treatment modalities to create a treatment plan that will benefit each individual client. As former teacher I carry with me the desire to teach myself out of a job. So, along with effective individualized treatment, I make it my goal to teach clients to use what they learn in session, where it counts: in their everyday lives.   I see couples, families, children, young adults and teens. I have varied hours of availability, including late afternoons, early mornings at The Inland Integrated Wellness Center. Our office is located in the historic district of Corona about 1 mile South of the 91FWY :
817 West Grand Blvd (map)
at the Inland Integrated Wellness Center.
Please feel free to view the pages of my website or call the office toll free at
