I've helped thousands of hard-working couples create intentional, evolving, fulfilling relationships.  Are you next?

It's very easy to lose track of ourselves amid the inspiration, aspiration, and dedication of a successful career path. 

And when we lose ourselves we simply cannot authentically connect to another.

I've seen the impact many years of day-to-day grind can have on intimate relationships first hand. 

Over the last ten years I've created a process using clinical expertise, scientific research in relationships, and professional experience to identify your strengths as well as your areas for growth in relationship in a relationship assessment. 

First we identify areas for growth across six foundational pillars of success for lasting love. We’ll take a look at your shared strengths, resilience, areas for personal development, tustworthiness, blocks and baggage, as well as the overall wellness of your partnership.

Then I'll draw from the best relationship expertise around the world to share tools and resources to support your growth. As a coach, I'm all about creating awareness to help you move forward.  We build upon your strengths to create a clear vision and a strategic plan of how you can reach your goals together.

SIX FOUNDATIONAL PILLARS OF RELATIONSHIP WELLNESS

These are the evidence-based foundations for successful lasting love and the core of every relationship assessment we do. Understanding them is essential to creating a structurally sound partnership that lasts.

1: YOUR UNIQUE STRENGTHS

Most relationship draws out the conflicts and areas of pain between you- only focusing on the negative. We believe that real health comes not simply from identifying areas of weakness, but in drawing upon strengths to remedy them.

In this assessment we’ll look closely at the areas of strength you share, and the unique gifts you each bring to the partnership to help cultivate and honor them as you move forward.

2: A TRUSTWORTHY CORE

The absolute foundation of lasting relationships is a trustworthy core. We’ll use the most recent scientific studies on trust to assess the trust in your partnership and see where we can enhance it using real research.

Learn which areas of trust need strengthening in your relationship and what to do about it.

3: SELF-WORK AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

In order for a relationship to really thrive it has to grow and change with the two of you as you grow and change. But there’s a million different paths to self-awareness. You need a path tailored to you.

So let’s take a look at the areas you’re each working on individually and where you might each focus to improve your relationship.

4: CLEARING OUT BLOCKS & DEFINING YOUR SHARED VISION

Every couple who’s been together a while has some past hurts, that’s part of the process. But resentment and unresolved hurt will drive a wedge between you over time.

Together we’ll work on ways to heal those old wounds once and for all. We’ll learn from them to build systems and interaction patterns that nourish you instead of drain you.

Once we’ve cleared the path we can look forward and carve out a bright shared vision for the two of you.

5: PARTNERSHIP SKILLS

Very few of us are taught healthy relationship skills form a young age. Let’s look at the communication and life management skills you’re currently using and assess their efficacy.

With that information we can implement the science of lasting connection to help you two work together to build a fulfilling shared life more lovingly.

6: RELATIONSHIP RESILIENCE

In this assessment we’ll review the well-researched resiliency factors in every lasting relationship. Bolstering your resiliency will help the two of you withstand challenges moving forward.

This area will help you feel like you’re a great team again. Who doesn’t want a solid teammate?

We didn’t need a ton of work on our relationship but we knew we didn’t want to end up like so many divorced couples we know. And we’d both had serious heartbreaks before. We were worried old patterns would show up.

Working with Gina helped us understand ourselves better and make intentional choices about how we want to be together.

I’m really not a big “therapy” person, but Gina made it easy to talk to her without judging us and her help really got us thinking bigger about what we need in life and from each other.

Living purposefully has been the key to my success at work so when we started having some tension at home I realized I wanted to put that same intentionality into my relationship.

MINDSET FOR SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP WORK

I ask all clients who start this work to consider their mindset as a critical piece in the success of our coaching work.  Please review the learning agreements below as you prepare for relationship coaching.

 

I (coaching client) acknowledge that:

  • in the past some of my choices have negatively impacted those around me, including those I love, and myself,

  • there is a possibility I will repeat these past choices as patterns in the future,

  • change and growth are not linear processes,

  • I want to improve quality of life and reduce stress for myself and those I care for by changing my relationship patterns.

 

In order to deepen my awareness to grow and learn in this process I will:

  • give myself space to have fun, experiment, create and change my mind,

  • stay open to feedback and willing to learn from my partner, and others I care for,

  • offer consensual compassionate feedback to my partner and/or other participants,

  • offer feedback to my facilitator/coach if the process needs adjustment for my learning style,

  • examine my inner resistance and limiting beliefs, actions, and reactions and

  • ask for support, advice, encouragement, empathy, resources, and tools when I need,

  • pace myself as I work through tools and resources,

  • commit to completing planned personal work between meetings and after the event.

 

In order to create meaningful lasting change in my relationship patterns, I will:

  • pay attention to the choices I make and claim responsibility for them,

  • seek to understand the consequences of my choices (including those I didn’t intend),

  • not use the actions of others as excuses for my choices,

  • do all I can to repair negative impact done by my chosen actions or omissions,

  • explore the patterns of behavior that lead to my actions and omissions,

  • address and change unhealthy, out-of-balance, and/or harmful patterns,

  • practice self-compassion, giving myself permission to make mistakes as I shape new patterns,

  • extend this practice of compassion to my partner and understand they will make mistakes as they learn, grow, and shape new patterns.
