I have maintained my own clinical work with couples for more than 38 years. I find clinical practice to be professionally rewarding, and I also believe that it is essential for me to be clinically active in order to continue to provide high-quality clinical supervision to others. In addition, my clinical experiences serve as a valuable ongoing source of new research ideas and questions.

I supervise students in the Couples Clinic at UNC, as well as therapists involved in our various treatment outcome studies. I also offer clinical training workshops to professionals outside of academia in many countries, focusing on various applications of couple-based interventions.
