Putting the Happily Back Into Ever After

In our fast-paced, innovative, tech savvy world where we are more connected than ever before, we are somehow missing the mark on the very thing we were created for — loving, intimate relationships. There are more divorces and fewer marriages today, and as a society, we experience more depression and anxiety than years past.  Time is a precious commodity and we seem to never have enough of it as we juggle the pressures of work and home and attempt to keep up with the Jones’; the stakes feel higher and happily-ever-after appears unattainable.

Come hear from Dr. Andrea Gurney, a Harvard-trained psychologist, professor, and clinician as she equips and encourages us with practical tools and insights drawn from relationship science and her almost 20+ in practice with families and couples.  After our time together, you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of how early relationships impact current ones, the lessons from neuroscience about the stages of love and romance, and how to communicate more effectively — including some quick tips for fighting fairly.
