Gottman Training for Professionals


“My partner and I

were able to create a

plan around a conflict

we’ve repeatedly

argued over

for over 10 years!”

“Highlights were

the Aftermath of a Fight

exercise and finding the

underlying dream

in a gridlocked problem.”

“Working thru exercises

knowing that 1 to 1

coaching was available

really made a difference.”

Bob Navarra, Psy.D, MFT

Bob integrates research-based approaches to help couples grow closer, manage their differences and create opportunities for shared meaning and connection. He provides them with the tools to deepen their friendship and effectively deal with conflict, especially with the "stuck issues".  


Dr. Navarra has co-authored several book chapters with Dr. John Gottman on Gottman Couples Therapy, and is currently collaborating on additional writing projects and research with Drs. John and Julie Gottman. He is also a Research Scientist at John Gottman's famed Relationship Research Institute in Seattle, Washington.

Integrating his relational model of addiction treatment with the Sound Relationship Model and theory, Dr. Navarra designed “Roadmap for the Journey: A Gottman Workshop for Couples in Addiction Recovery” and developed the “Couple Recovery Development Approach”, a unique strategy to addiction and recovery counseling that integrates the Gottman Method into a customized program for recovering couples. It is based on his work as a Research Associate, Director and Co-Founder of the Center for Couples in Recovery, at Mental Research Institute (MRI) in Palo Alto, California. 

Bob is a Master Certified Gottman Therapist, Trainer, Consultant and Speaker. He has a Psy.D from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and a M.A. in Marriage and Family Counseling from Santa Clara University. He is a licensed Marriage and Family Counselor (#15997).
