Hi, I’m Kirby. I help couples prepare for marriage and navigate the nuances of married life.
You’re engaged (yay!), but may feel outwardly excited while inwardly nervous and uncertain about how your marriage will go or if you and your fiance are truly ready for this commitment. Or you feel so secure with your partner that you may be overlooking hard conversations that will likely impact your future together. You may even have had wonderful role models that showed you what a loving and healthy marriage looks like. You want this for your relationship, but just aren’t certain how to go about it. On the other side, you may have had parents or caregivers who divorced or had a strained marriage and want to avoid some of what influenced their struggles. And the reality is that relationships can be beautiful and they can be hard. There is no pretending or rose-colored glasses here. I’m here to help you fill your marital tool-box with information, skills, and strategies to enhance your personal growth and relationship with your soon-to-be spouse.
Newlywed & Married Couples
When thinking about your relationship with your partner, you may feel confused, disappointed, and hurt. You struggle with feeling like a team and have difficulty feeling seen and heard by one another. It’s exhausting feeling like and functioning as a team of one. What you really want is to do life together with your partner. You feel the busyness of your day-to-day responsibilities compounding the already strained areas of your relationship and what used to seem like simple and easy resolutions has become complicated and more difficult to sort out. You want life to be simple and more balanced and your relationship to flourish. You don’t have to continue experiencing these stressors that are impacting your relationship or marriage.

When it comes right down to it, I want to support you in building and sustaining a lasting and fulfilling relationship. I want you and your partner to feel confident in having not-so-sexy conversations that help you grow more deeply together. I want you to feel more peace knowing that as a couple you have put in the work that is going to help you create and maintain your joy-filled forever together.
