“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes

Most of us understand that great relationships do not just happen.

We know that marriages and parenting take real work and dedication. Yet we are rarely taught the essential skills that are the foundation of truly successful relationships.

Coaching bridges that gap between where you are now and where you want or need to be. It’s different from counseling, as the video below explains.

Smart Relationships Coaching is strength-focused and skill-based. It uses the latest insights from science to help you achieve quick and dramatic change.

What does that mean?

  • I teach you how to deliberately create positive, successful, joyful relationships.
  • We don’t focus on what’s not working. There is no tearful rehashing of conflict.
  • You will learn how to communicate effectively and with empathy.
  • You will discover the big rocks to avoid.
  • You will finally understand why things go wrong, and how to consistently make them go right!

Smart Relationships Coaching is action-oriented.

  • This is not talk therapy. We will not be rehashing the past.  Our sole focus will be on achieving the relationship you want to have.
  • The process is relatively painless, and it is highly effective. It is guy friendly, and both of you will feel supported!
  • I guarantee you will see your relationship improve, or your money back!
Smart Relationships Coaching provides greater focus, awareness, choice, support, and accountability to get you where you want to go in your relationship with your life partner.
