Relationship Coaching for Individuals


Want to learn how to co-create

an authentic, loving, respectful relationship?


Are you tired of hearing from your inner critic?


We are programmed to bond with others. We crave connection, yet, there’s no instruction manual tailored to you to help you navigate relationships.


"With counseling, I learned how to improve the relationship with myself and with others.

It's so worth it."

In your early life you watched others and took your best guess at the unspoken rules of how to seek comfort, speak up for your wants and needs, and protect yourselves from being abandoned or rejected.


You might have learned that relationships can feel smothering and you want to maintain your independence. Perhaps you always felt alone and want to know how to choose someone who is trustworthy and you can count on. Maybe you were told you are too needy, too distant, over sensitive, or selfish.


It can be confusing to discern how much of that is true, and what’s emotional blackmail from someone who didn’t learn how to be healthy in relationships. It’s easy to get caught in explaining, defending, and game playing.


Together we will face your fears and learn the skills needed to create a fulfilling relationship with another.


When you take charge and acknowledge self-sabotage and limiting beliefs that cause distractions from you being your best self in relationships, you can uncover and empower your wisest self.


Conquer your inner critic and gain hope and confidence.
