Professional ME

I can share with you all my experience, but know above all else, I am PASSIONATE about helping you REVIVE your relationship, authentically cultivate connection, and THRIVE! I am an empath, an assertive go-getter, an optimist, been known to both laugh and cry with my clients, am open and vulnerable about my own lived experiences, and an eternal cheerleader for love. 

What sets me apart as your Couples Coach is in addition to the right attitude, I can back it with EXPERIENCE & TRAINING.  I have spent the last 20 years in the helping field preparing to work with YOU.
