Relationships matter. 

I can't think of anything in life that matters more than our relationships--with God, self, and others.

And when you choose to get married, your marriage is an opportunity to express the love of God.

Yet, maybe right now you're experiencing some pain and disconnect in your marriage.

You've built walls, created a busy schedule, entertained unhealthy habits and have grown accustomed to living life without experiencing the best that your marriage has to offer.

You're growing apart and becoming more like roommates.

But God created marriage to be more than this.

A marriage is to be edifying to the soul and is to be a reflection of God's love for us.

A healthy marriage is a cornerstone of a healthy family, which is the foundation to healthy and thriving communities.

Yet, a healthy marriage isn't possible without two healthy and whole people committed to the health of the relationship.

And that always brings us back to our relationship with God.

So to experience the love and connection you desire in your marriage starts with the love and connection you experience in your relationship with God. And that extends outward in how you see & treat yourself and how you see and treat your spouse.

Thus it's a journey of exploring your relationship with God, exploring your relationship with yourself and your spouse.

As a relationship coach, author, and speaker I know first-hand how challenging it can be to maintain a healthy marriage. You’re not alone. And you don’t have to figure this out on your own.

Because a healthy relationships matters. And I’m here to help you to heal, grow and nurture your marriage.

When you work with me as your coach, read my work or listen to me speak, my hope is that you grow in your relationships and experience deeper connection so you can have more peace, joy, and fulfillment in your life.

My approach to supporting you in relationships is a process of intertwining faith and practical application.  We explore your relationship with God, your past, your identity and personal needs in relationships with the intention of gaining greater insight into who you are, who you are called to be, and what’s holding you back from experiencing the best in your relationships, especially your marriage. Then we uncover ways to experience the most in your relationships so you can have more peace, joy, and fulfillment.

Getting to know me

I started this path of coaching as a business coach. For over three years, I supported creative business owners in building and expanding profitable businesses while maintaining healthy relationships.

I've coached my clients to do things such as earn an additional 100k in revenue in their business in just one year, grow their bottom line by 40%, sell-out events in just one day, launch new programs and more. But what I found in coaching nearly every client is that the greatest breakthroughs came when we explored the personal growth—the relationships in their lives. In working with my business coaching clients, I discovered that my heart is in relationship coaching, so I decided to focus solely on that.

I have a saying that everyone eventually cries with me because we go deep and get to the deeper issues that are affecting their lives the most. We go there, but we don’t stay there. We work on healing and growing, and it’s in that work that my clients experience the most growth and my heart gets the most reward.

I love when my clients tell me that I’ve helped them have more confidence and clarity in their lives. My clients tell me all that time that I’ve helped them more than they got out of years of therapy. And while I love therapy and think it has its place, I know that sometimes what you need is a coach and that’s exactly what I offer my clients.

My clients come to me feeling overwhelmed with life, burdened by their fears and worries, hurting in their relationships, and exhausted with trying to do all the things. So we sort through the clutter, get to the real issues and explore ways to heal and grow.

I am a natural big-bold dreamer and a deeply rooted woman of faith, proud Navy wife and loving mother to two little ones. I have a BA in social science with an emphasis in sociology & psychology and two years of graduate school in Clinical Counseling from Johns Hopkins University.

I am the author of EntrepreFriendships, a book that uncovers the step-by-step process of building business relationships.  I have created group workshops, training and masterminds on topics pertaining to personal growth, building relationships, business growth and embracing diversity. I travel the world speaking and teaching and am incredibly passionate about relationships & doing purposeful work.

I believe it's not all about your comfort, but it's about your growth.

We shine brighter together

Give me gold, sequins, stripes, and bows, and you’ll have one happy-sassy soul sister. To know me is to also know I love to shine and sparkle, inside and out. So I love a sparkly shirt or accessory and pretty pumps. I’ve even been told, “You sparkle everywhere you go.” I love to shine bright, so you can shine brighter. I truly believe we shine brighter together!
