The quality of your relationships is the #1 predictor of happiness. If you’re looking to improve the connection with your partner, family or friends, I can help you determine what you need to thrive.

Own Your Relationships

Your relationships have a significant role in determining your happiness. Modern families like stepfamilies and single parent families, as well as same-sex partnerships and later-in-life pregnancies are the new normal, with new challenges and benefits. Let’s prioritize what’s most important.

Relationship Coach

We can work together to help you:

  • Figure out the qualities you’re really looking for in a partner
  • Determine your unique qualities as a partner
  • Find your partner
  • Determine healthy boundaries for your relationships
  • Articulate what you need
  • Lead your emotions
  • Respond instead of react
  • Practice active listening (and ask for it in return)

Divorce Coach

We can work together to help you:

  • Organize and restructure your finances
  • Establish a civil parenting partnership, or parallel parenting
  • Establish childcare routines and support
  • Build a supportive, satisfying social life
  • Establish career needs, goals and game plan

Fertility Coach / Pregnancy Coach

We can work together to help you:

  • Prepare for the process
  • Lead your emotions
  • Figure out what you need during this time
  • Prepare for and understand the injections/hormones
  • Manage friends and family expectations
  • Create more options
  • Slowly and gently, prepare to commit to the baby growing inside you

Stepmom Coach

We can work together to help you:

  • Enter stepmotherhood with grace and ease
  • Create the framework for thriving as a stepparent
  • Give up the “she” conversation in favor of the “we” conversation
  • Help your partner help you in this new role
  • Take on only what you want to. Then take on even less.
  • Be the mom in your house
  • Gain the respect and appreciation you deserve.

New Parent Coach

We can work together to help you:

  • Create a fourth trimester plan
  • Create a first year plan
  • Determine who can help you
  • Find the right child care situation
  • Determine the best way to balance work and child
  • Prepare for your (2nd, 3rd, 4th…) baby
  • Control what you can and yield to the rest

New Parent Program

In working with expectant parents, I am offering a 6-session package, which will include 2 prep sessions (for the couple) before the baby comes, a fourth trimester plan, and 4 sessions during the baby’s first six months (with mom and/or dad). This would be a total of 6 sessions over the course of a year for the couple. This program is offered for $275 per session ($1650 total), and unlimited email access between sessions.

A Village of Fathers

I have a life coach. As a career & life coach, it behooves me to be coached, to practice what I preach. My coach was a set up, and as a result, a coach was chosen for me that is probably unlike a coach I would have chosen for myself. He is a Black Christian man living […]

People Are Like Goldfish

My family and I went to a festival recently, and they had one of those games where participants can win goldfish. Of course this the prize both of my 3-year-olds wanted. And, after carrying those fish around for 2 hours, carelessly tossed to the side when a kid was eating pizza, swimming away from the claws of a 3-year-old […]
