Hi, I’m Kirby. I help couples prepare for marriage, navigate the nuances of married life, and help parents to continue to build and strengthen their relationship while managing the stressors of parenthood.
Engaged couples may feel outwardly excited while inwardly nervous and uncertain about how their marriage will go or if they are truly ready for this commitment. Some feel so secure with their partner that they overlook hard conversations that will likely impact their future together. They may have had wonderful role models that showed them what a loving and healthy marriage looks like. They want this for themselves, but just aren’t certain how to go about it. They 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 Couples & Parents
When thinking about their relationship with their partner, couples may feel confusion, disappointment, and hurt. They 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 they really want is to do life together with their partner. They feel the busyness of their day-to-day responsibilities compounds the already strained areas of their relationship and what used to seem like simple and easy resolutions has become complicated and more difficult to sort out. They want life to be simple and more balanced and their relationship to flourish. If you’re experiencing stressors that are impacting your relationship or marriage, I’d love support you and your partner in taking the next steps on your personal and relationship growth journey.
