Gottman Method Workshops

Toni is also a certified Gottman Method Couples Therapist, in addition to being a seasoned Sex and Relationship expert in her own right. Although she conducts the following two workshops based on their techniques, they are enriched with her own perspectives from results obtained through her in-demand private practice.

Bringing Baby Home

After the birth of a child, restoring that connection between mother and father is critical. Couples may think their love is strong enough to weather the physical fatigue and unexpected emotional demands, but sleep deprivation has a profound effect on the brain.

Even healthy people deprived of restful sleep for just one month become clinically and psychologically depressed. Any wonder that new moms become emotionally unavailable to their partners? Exhausted, she has little energy much less conscious desire to tend to her partner’s needs … and then, “dad” becomes frustrated.

Prepare for the realities and learn “how to” embrace your new role, work though postpartum blues, and get what you really need for yourself & from each other.
