About the

Skripts Project

Welcome to Skripts, where we specialize in mastering difficult conversations by infusing them with humor and setting clear, respectful boundaries. We aim to make communication smoother, less dramatic, and more enjoyable for everyone involved.

     The Skripts™ Method is the brainchild of Dr. LauraMaery Gold, a licensed clinical therapist who turned her relationship research into a communication revolution. She believes that communication shouldn't be a labyrinth of confusion and awkwardness. With Skripts, you'll be equipped with the power of principled language and a healthy dose of humor.

     The approach is simple: Keep it real, keep it relatable, and inoculate it with a shot of laughter. We're not afraid to use good-natured ribbing to tackle the serious stuff. Think of Skripts as the key to preventing those dreaded "uh-oh" conversational moments. Skripts help couples and individuals navigate conflict with a wink and a smile.
