About Dr. Mowzoon
"I feel couples are the links of society: they are the nucleus of society as a whole. If the couple is strong, the family is strong. If the family is strong, the fabric of society becomes strong. To get to the root of what is going on in society today, I believe working on relationships is at the core."
– Dr. Nura Mowzoon
