I help successful women and couples. Women, everyone believes you have it all together, but inside you know differently. Stress hits at the worst moments. A rude coworker or a nasty comment from your partner makes you feel 5 years old again. At work your Imposter Syndrome stops you from speaking up and advancing your career. At home your relationship needs a tune up. But you don’t have the confidence to rock the boat. I help women just like you rediscover their strength and intuition and live bigger, more powerful lives!

Speaking of power, many couples I see don’t believe they are “Power Couples,” but both partners are smart, educated, and successful. Your friends think you have it all...but you can’t stop arguing. You worry that your fights are hurting the kids. But you’re stuck in this cycle and the resentments run deep. Is there hope?

Yes. I help couples funnel their anger into deep and powerful conversations. You’ll understand each other more, remember why you fell in love, and bring your marriage back to happiness and peace. I’ll help you stop arguing in front of the kids. You’re on your way to the partnership that you yearn for!
