“Hello to all the individuals and couples out there who are just starting their families, or have young kids, and want to keep their marriage/relationship alive.

I am thrilled to offer these new, online, educational tips and strategies where I can coach even more couples and individuals who are wanting to keep their love alive in their marriage or relationship while starting their families.  As you apply these tips to improve your marriage, this can also translate into having a direct positive impact on you, your couple relationship, your children’s health and happiness, and overall family health.
As a mom, wife and practicing couples therapist, I appreciate what it takes to carve out couple time in the midst of navigating a full life with your marriage, children, work and individual interests.”
