Summary of Experience

Over 30 years of experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (now coach), providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I am not currently licensed, preferring to be able to work with couples anywhere.

Additional post-graduate training to specialize in working with couples to help them develop life-giving relationships.  

Consulting with business owners to identify, hire, and retain key employees. 

Mentoring entrepreneur couples as they seek to grow their marriages while building a business.

Pre-marital work with couples


Areas of Focus

Couples that want to create relationships that are thriving and mutually satisfying. 

Couples that feel stuck in repetitive arguments or painful patterns and want to find a new way forward

Entrepreneur couples: I understand the unique challenges of growing a business/company while raising a family.

Women who feel stuck, stalled, or undervalued but want to step into their full potential. She wants to create a life that honors her values, desires, goals, and roles. 



Our past doesn’t dictate our future. I believe that we are capable of having relationships that are as good as we want them to be. With the right tools and focused coaching based on proven techniques, relationships can be the life-giving partnerships we all desire. My relationship training includes the perspectives of Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman principles, and family systems. 

I tend to be solution-focused, committed to helping others reach the goals they desire, whether that’s a better marriage or individual growth. 


Personal Statement

If you choose to work with me, you will experience someone that is passionate about creating healthy relationships. And has a good sense of humor! Mark (my partner in life for 44 years!) and I know that great marriages don’t just happen. They only happen when both people commit to working on their relationship. We’ve experienced the highs and lows of starting businesses and ministries while creating a family that brings us so much joy. It hasn’t been easy at times, but I bring the experience of what I’ve learned, guided by proven relationship techniques, to help others transform their relationships from frustrating to fantastic. 

The human spirit has a powerful drive to live fully. My role as a coach is first to understand where you are in your journey, listen to your dreams, and then help you identify and overcome the roadblocks that get in the way of the life and relationships you desire.
