Gary With Katie Couric


“I hope you’ll give me the honor of helping you and your family. Most people travel to me from around the world after they have seen other therapists unsuccessfully. I’ve wanted to make a difference for anyone who’d like to really make meaningful changes in their lives. Look, I’ve been married for over 28 years and have 5 children. I know it’s not easy but I also know we can all make it happen. Believe me when I say, there’s hope. But it takes some energy and focus. Give me the opportunity and I believe I can be of significant help to help empower you to create the life you desire.”

I, Esther Halperin, am the co-­creator of Neuman Method and have worked extensively with Gary for many years providing his Sandcastles Program for Children of Divorce and his research on marriage and infidelity. My work has been featured in Parents magazine, Your Teen Magazine, Huffington Post, and many others. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have spent years in private practice working with adults, children, adolescents and families. Through my work in Broward General Medical Center Neonatal Unit, assisting mothers and families with children in the NICU, and working through the Mailman Center’s Heroes program with women and children of Domestic Violence, I have seen families and couples at their best and worst.

I was honored and excited to be asked to work with Gary to help fulfill his vision for Neuman Method. For some, therapy and couples counseling can be daunting. But Gary’s method’s are warm and inviting. I’ve studied marital programs and know that Neuman Method offers the most comprehensive, clear path  and techniques than any other of its kind.  There’s simply nothing like it.

Neuman Method online programs allow you and your spouse to receive the feeling of meaningful marital counseling, and the secrets to successful marriages, in a nonthreatening and comfortable way. It can help you at any stage of your relationship whether you’re just starting to date seriously, in the first years of marriage, or at the end of the line considering separation.

My vision is for families to access the help they need in an easy manner; receiving the expertise from professionals in an effective format that personally guides you and your spouse towards success. I know that change can be difficult and so in addition to co-­creating the program, Gary and I are dedicated to following up with each individual through weekly posts, informative articles from both Gary and myself, tips to strengthen your marriage, and guidance directly to your inbox.

Change and awareness are daily milestones and this is why both Gary and I are so focused on helping you and your couplehood make those extraordinary leaps to achieve ultimate joy and happiness.
