own experience

Take the chaos and stress out of your hurtful conversations.

Watching my parents go through their marriage was an interesting journey, filled with love as well as moments of prolonged tension. Hardly did I witness my parent's attempt a conflict in our presence. The culture of avoidance was definitely present. In the early years of my own marriage, I observed a repetition of the cycle of avoidance and minimal conflict discussion because of the negative view of marriage.
Subconsciously, I avoided conflict conversation because I deemed it stressful, and feared it could lead to more drama. Wrong! The avoidance of conflict reduced our confidence in the marriage until we learned to "face each other and address the elephant in the room".
Pausing to observe, and communicate our emotional experiences and needs was a game changer. Guided and strategic conflict conversations has led to increased vulnerability, understanding and growth, friendship and confidence in the future of my relationship. Growth in marriage and romantic relationship is definitely possible, with some guidance, training, dedication, commitment and patience. Join me on the path or relationship growth through my 9- step Couples Conflict Navigation Roadmap where you would have access to a formal assessment, re-evaluate your relationship, stop the hurt and learn new tools for growing from relationship conflicts.Take the chaos and stress out of your hurtful conversations, and start increasing your confidence in the future of your relationship in 90 days

A lot! This program will save you over $20,000.00 in health care bills and the process of divorce, attorney fees, and stress if the chaos is not resolved in the relationship.

Book a free consultation call, because our time is very limited due to the pandemic. Currently this unique program is open to 10 couples per quarter, beginning in 2022…


Couples Coaching is primary private pay because insurance does not cover coaching. Insurance usually covers 45 minutes of family or marriage counseling but my approach to couples work requires between 60 to 75 minutes per interaction. Insurance also requires a mental health diagnosis before covering for services.

Note: I am currently NOT accepting insurance for couples counseling.

The Couples Conflict Navigation Roadmap is for couples who need help with learning healthy ways of addressing difficult topics that leads to increase stress in the relationship. This program is also appropriate for couples who are committed to turning their relationship around and stopping the drama.

I currently see clients only in Texas, through HIPAA compliant virtual platforms.

Individual session: $160.00 and $230 for couple session.
