Allow us to introduce you to Cameron Gordon, PhD, your guide on this journey towards flourishing in life and love. As both a professor and a skilled clinician, Dr. Gordon integrates the best of psychological research with warm personal qualities.
Drawing from his research on positive psychology, the study of human strengths and virtues, and his extensive work on romantic relationships, Cameron is dedicated to helping adult individuals and couples to not only mend distress in their lives but truly flourish. He leads a dynamic research team that explores topics like mindfulness and gratitude, applying these principles in innovative ways for clients who desire to cultivate more joy, balance, and fulfillment in their lives.
