Connecting with others enriches our lives and brings a sense of joy and purpose. We all subconsciously seek these connections but not all connections are equal. I offer a unique approach to understanding those connections. By utilizing evidence-based coaching I am able to deliver un-biased coaching rooted in science. This unlocks communication within a relationship and allows for meaningful growth.
Welcome to my site!
During a transformational four-week program, I help pre-marital couples build a personalized relationship blueprint for success. We will address each partner’s values, beliefs, and goals in a safe space that encourages openness and creativity. Couples who complete the boot camp before or shortly after marriage do so with the best tools for success.
According to a well-cited study, couples who’d completed some form of premarital counseling had a 30% increased satisfaction in their marriage than couples who don’t.
Every couple faces challenges after being married for years. Kids get older, parents age, and careers change or end with retirement. My You and Me for Keeps Bootcamp focuses on strengthening the bonds that hold couples together, allowing them to ease through the peaks and valleys that come with marriage in mid-life. Over the course of four weeks, couples explore and work together to strengthen the fabric of their love using science-backed methods.
Marriage relationships change over time. Couples with unsolved problems may be at risk of harmful and destructive communication patterns that are challenging to resolve and may result in decreased intimacy (Eldridge et al., 2007; Pearce & Halford, 2008, as cited in Abreu-Afonso et al., 2021). Couples that can engage in joint and shared problem solving, experience higher levels of joint satisfaction (South et al., 2010, as cited in Abreu-Afonso et al., 2021).
Working with you and seeing you meet goals and overcome obstacles is exciting! You are the real expert on yourself, and my job is to bring your best self to the surface. I will use techniques such as powerful questioning to inspire awareness and move you toward growth. You will determine what you’d like to focus on, and I will listen with an open mind. Together, we will uncover why your goal is essential to tackle at this time, what roadblocks might be in the way, and then create an action plan.
A recent study CONCLUDED THAT 80% OF PEOPLE WHO HIRED A LIFE COACH REPORTED AN IMPROVED SENSE OF SELF CONFIDENCE AND 73% IMPROVED THEIR RELATIONSHIPS.
I coach from personal experience and formal
training from some of the country’s most prestigious institutions but I’ve learned the most from listening to my clients. My most sincere passion is identifying needs and matching them with solutions.
I coach engaged newlyweds and midlife married couples and individuals to prepare for, and adjust, their relationship communication when they meet life’s inevitable hills and valleys.
I am proud to partner with husband, Joe Locke, a wedding entertainment professional. After working with hundreds of couples planning their perfect wedding day, I was inspired to create this program designed to help you build the marriage of your dreams!
