    Certified Relationship Coach

    I am a Certified Relationship Coach specializing in marriage crises. As a coach, my focus is on problems presently occurring in relationships rather than focusing on past childhood or mental health issues as you would with a psychotherapist. With coaching, childhood and mental health issues are discussed but only as a way of understanding the extent to which they are impacting current relationships. I see my primary goal as a coach is to teach couples how to love each other better. In doing so, I rely heavily on God’s Word for guidance in combination with my own personal testimony of healing in my life and in my marriage. As a coach I provide practical ways to help improve the quality of your relationships by improving how you interact on a day-to-day basis. Ultimately, it is my firm belief that the source of all mental, emotional and spiritual healing comes from loving others as we learn to love ourselves.

    After 25 years working in the animation industry as an Emmy Award winning producer my decision to begin working as a counselor and coach happened as a result of crisis in my own marriage. The realization of my contributions to the crisis profoundly affected me so that I committed myself to making changes for the benefit of my marriage and family. Now, more than a decade later, it is my desire to share my testimony of change in the hopes of inspiring others who might be struggling in their marriage and/or relationships.

    Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope

    – Romans 5:3-4
