Teaches You Exactly What Successful Couples Do

Concepts based on studies of 3,000+ couples.

Researchers have been studying couples for 40+ years.

Developed by Drs. John & Julie Gottman, Creators of the ‘Love Lab’

What Is The Gottman 'Love Lab’?

Trusted. Proven.

In the 1980, Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues embarked on a groundbreaking research project -- to scientifically measure the key components to lasting love.

They placed couples in “Love Lab” apartments, where researchers observed their interaction and measured their biological responses to situations.

The data and relationship-building exercises born from the studies are now available to you at The Art and Science of Love couples weekend workshop.​

Caralee was trained by Drs. Julie and John Gottman. She also frequently assists the Gottman at their couples workshop.
