Relationship Coaching

for Individuals and Couples

Relationships can be hard.  Boundaries are often unclear. Communication is tricky, and knowing how to get needs met without being needy or aggressive is sometimes a mystery.


That's why I provide coaching for individuals and couples who are having struggles with feeling heard, appreciated, and respected in relationships.

I work with all types of individuals and couples who struggle with feeling misunderstood, lonely, and frustrated about issues such as trust, repeated conflict, and communication breakdown.


I can help couples who want pre-marital counseling, and those who feel yourself drifting, or are considering divorce. For couples I provide neutral, yet intentional coaching.

A note about INSURANCE or using an HSA account:

Couples coaching is focused on learning the skills needed, clearing old resentments or habits, shifting beliefs, updating thought patterns, whatever is needed to create a deeply fulfilling relationship.

Insurance requires a diagnosis of one person, and documentation of medical necessity, meaning connecting the necessity of couples therapy to treat the individual's mental health disorder, in order to consider coverage. If you are interested in receiving reimbursement from your insurance or health savings account, notify me before we get started so we can have additional sessions to properly assess, document, and create a treatment plan for you. The couples coaching assessment and intake will not satisfy these additional requirements. 


If you are ready to

clearly communicate and

connect with passion,
