Join the smartest couples I know by actually preparing AHEAD of time for your marriage! We discuss everything you will need to know before saying “I Do”. Studies show that couples who attend pre-marital counseling have a greater chance at long term marriage! If you have been married before, I am especially passionate about working with you and your partner to ensure greater marital success the second or third time around. We uncover patterns that may be unconscious to you and your partner so that they can be addressed and new skills can be learned in communication, handling conflict, and blending your families together easily.
I teach couples the skills necessary to communicate more effectively, along with healthy ways to resolve conflict, and how to improve their admiration and appreciation for each other. I use an online assessment (The Gottman Relationship Checkup) and tools from the Gottman Institute to assess where you are now in your relationship and where you want to be. I have been trained in “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work” workshop and offer training to couples in an intimate classroom setting every other month. Once a year, I offer a Couples Retreat for an intensive experience where many couples have a breakthrough to the healing and reconnection that they need to move forward.
Good, healthy, passionate marriages don’t just happen! They are made by two people who want to learn the skills necessary to fall and stay in love, year after year! Having an “intentional marriage” will require that you show up every day for your partner. It requires that you put in “work”, to a job that I hope you chose and truly LOVE to do day after day! No one took a class on healthy relationship skills. Many of us learned what we know from our families of origin and many of them had no idea what they were doing! It’s time to learn and grow into “love warriors” and fight for your marriage by applying the communication skills and conflict resolution skills needed to have healthy, joy-filled marriages again. Let me come alongside you on that journey today!
- Improving communication
- Increasing the fondness and admiration for one another
- Religious or cultural clashes
- Feeling distant and disconnected
- Arguments that never get resolved
- Differences in parenting styles
- Improving your sexual intimacy
- Managing conflict
Give me a call so that I can support you both in your journey to finding love and each other again. Your dream of a deeply intimate, loving relationship can come true with a little bit of help!
