I have written my very first book, Love Is an Action Verb: Stop Wasting Time and Delight in Your Relationship.
Improve your relationship, deepen your connection and brush up on your communication and empathy skills (strategies work with or without your partner).
Hi, I’m Laura.
I help people find happiness, fulfillment, and connection in their relationships one conversation at a time.
As a Certified Gottman Method Couples Therapist, I spend forty hours a week helping people save their marriages, and have been doing so for almost 30 years.
I have learned a lot along the way and want to share what I know.

I’ve never looked at things from this perspective, good insight. I think we focus too much on a fairy tale when it comes to relationships and become upset when it doesn’t come true, embracing and realizing downs are apart of the process, save the trouble.
