About Us

Power Couples Education

Mission Statement

Power Couples Education (PCE) aims to work on behalf of the current and future generations of the world by promoting the psychological and emotional well-being of couples and families through public education and the training of professionals.

This education is based not on social or political trends, but on the science of human bonding, evolutionary biology and the brain.

The couple is the building block of society. Healthy communication between couples forms the foundation for the development of the emotional health, reflective thinking and morality needed to deal with the complex challenges currently facing our world.

Nurturing safe and caring relationships is at the core of advancing the development of communities which are fully cooperative and collaborative, and which are critical to the survival of human life on earth.

Tools for Couples, Relationships and Families

Never have couples been under as much stress as they are today. The good news is that we have more access to the ground-breaking research and tools that allow coupes to heal and grow stronger together!

Gabrielle founded Power Couples Education to serve the general public and train relationship professionals to help couples and families.

PCE offers online courses and resources on building healthy relationships for couples and individuals.

PCE’s popular Youtube channel provides insightful relationship content every week.

State-of-the-Art Training for Mental Health Professionals

Our world is full of increasingly confusing messages about love, relationships, family and identity. So many couples in the world today feel increasingly lost. The harsh reality is that married couples are as likely as not to end up divorced.

PCE trains professionals in its advanced approach to marriage, family and relationships through its professional training arm, the Power Couples Institute. Therapists who engage the training consistently report the strong impact it has on both their personal and professional lives.

We at PCE are committed to translating the insights of evolutionary biology, attachment theory, research on trauma and the nervous system into the therapy room.

Our unique approach facilitates healing and growth for couples, their families and the communities to which they belong.
