You and your partner have drifted apart. Lives are busy and there's no time to have those heart-to-heart talks. You're missing intimacy and sex is nonexistent. Tension and conflict have become more present than they once were. Neither of you are ready to give up, but you both know your relationship won't last if it continues on this trajectory. Your relationship is worth saving and you're both ready for change. If this sounds like you, the time is now. Let's get started.

Khara uses the Gottman Method, based on 40+ years of research, to assist couples to building a healthy relationship. Khara guides couples to gain understanding of current patterns that support their relationship and gives them tools to make changes that lead a couple to have a fulfilling, satisfying, intimate relationship.

Additionally, Khara is a Gottman 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work Leader and Gottman Bringing Baby Home Educator, both 12-hour marriage enrichment workshops. If you are interested in attending or hosting workshops please reach out! **Khara also utilizes a 4.5lb therapy dog named Tino (pictured above) in counseling.
