About Dr. Nancy Gardner

When a couple calls me for help with their relationship, I am honored to be invited into this part of their life that is so central.

I work collaboratively with couples to help them establish a secure attachment, to avoid negative ways of interacting that pull them apart, and to find ways to be emotionally open to each other’s needs for loving connections. Often this requires repair of past hurts, setting aside time for each other, and finding ways to feel appreciation and communicate it to each other.

I have been married for over thirty years. I think of a good couple relationship as an adult attachment, a secure and loving place for both partners.

I have been a therapist for over thirty years. I am influenced most by John Gottman’s decades of research on what works and does not work in marriage, and by the empirically-validated methods of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy formulated by Susan Johnson, Ph.D. I have attended externships and have consulted on my cases with the Gottman Institute and with Sue Johnson’s Couple and Family Institute. I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist.

I teach couple therapy to graduate students in psychology, and I supervise therapists in training.

I hope to hear from you soon.
