About Me

Rosemary's face
My name is Rosemary West. I married the love of my life in 1985. I love to travel, and my other interests include family history, fine dining, literature, and gardening.

I have been trained as a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I am not a psychologist, therapist or counselor (my degrees are in Languages & Cultures and Linguistics). I am not providing counseling or therapy. None of the information here is intended as medical or legal advice. My comments, ideas and opinions are based on my research, observations, experience and education. I hope that the information and suggestions you find here will be useful.

Advertising and Affiliate Disclosure

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com and its related sites. This means that if someone buys a book or product after clicking on my link to Amazon, I might earn a tiny amount.

If there is an occasion when I receive compensation from a company or advertiser in exchange for testing a product or writing a review, I will disclose it in the review. No matter what, when I write about products or services, the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
