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 through relationship coaching. 

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, trustworthiness, 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 all the couples work I 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 our work 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 our work together 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?

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.
