As a relationship coach, I have worked with couples and families for over 10 years, helping them navigate communication challenges and strengthen their relationships. I provide premarital coaching, as well as coaching for couples in all stages of their relationships, including couples who want to proactively strengthen their relationship, who may need a "tune-up" to reconnect, or couples who find themselves in a crisis situation. The common thread that exists in all relationships is the desire to be heard, understood, validated, nurtured, and loved unconditionally.
The same needs exist in family relationships. In addition to my work with couples, I also have worked extensively with families to help them build trust, strengthen communication, establish boundaries, and set consistent, healthy routines. My work with families has included adult parent-child conflicts; challenges related to divorce; various parenting struggles; issues unique to blended families, as well as helping parents and teens navigate the challenges that are unique to this age.
Additionally, I have also worked in education for over 10 years with adolescents and their families to help them make educational decisions and deal with the unique personal/social issues of this age. In addition to my coaching practice, I am also a high school counselor.
