I bring a unique combination of academic expertise and training, as well as personal experience to my students and Marriage Coaching clients. I was married right out of college, divorced for many years when my children were young, met and married Mark, the love of my life, and lived happily ever-after until his death from cancer in 2005. I am “Nana” to twins who have enriched my life beyond measure.

I am passionate about co-creating the coach-client relationship, which is the foundation of this vigorous change process we call coaching. I am the advocate for the relationship and the holder of the possibilities for every couple I am privileged to work with. Weaving the textures of your life experience with those of another, to create a fabric richer than your wildest expectations, is possible.
