I am a Relationship/Marriage, Spiritual, and Life and Wellness Coach. If you want better in life and relationships, I can help. I hold 4 Master's degrees and I am completing a doctorate. Over the past 20 years I have formally trained in approaches-- supported by clinical research to be effective-- for individual and couples. See my website, WellCoachedLife.com to learn more.
RELATIONSHIP COACHING: Let me guess. One partner feels alone and like they don't matter and the other feels they are always being criticized and can't get anything right. The more one asks for the other to show up, the more the partner disappears physically and emotionally. You both bicker and fight and the idea of sitting and just hanging out seems elusive, if not impossible. Something like this? Often we crave connection but are blocked by the pain and the history that gets in the way. Small fights about little things become battles that highlight our struggle to have our basic relational needs met. If you are struggling in your relationship, I can help you get under the bickering to the wounded and guarded parts to allow you to reconnect to the person you fell in love with. I pull from relationship models proven to be effective in helping relationships through research. If you are ready to do the work, I can help you cultivate a relationship beyond "fixes." A healthy relationship is one of the most life-giving experience we can have. I offer a free consultation appointment so I can hear more and give you an opportunity to get a feel for me and how I work.
