Helping couples gain the resources and knowledge they need for a successful Partnerhood as they
grow their families. 


Preparing for having children also includes preparing for becoming parents. Learn what the birthing and newborn care classes don't teach you.



Finding the time to take a class with your partner can be tricky. This program can be done any time that works for you both.


Keep your relationship strong and healthy as you navigate the twists and turns of raising children.

Enrollment is open!

Congrats on becoming parents!

You're doing all the right things in preparing for a child.
You're taking newborn care classes and learning how to change diapers and swaddle your baby. You're reading books and blogs about parenting. You may even be taking classes on breastfeeding, co-sleeping, and the actual birth itself.
You've prepared for the baby shower, built the crib, and decorated the nursery.
You are waiting patiently for that beautiful baby to arrive.
Young Couple Expecting

But what happens when...

Your four-month old is going through a sleep regression and you and your partner have the worst fight of your lives at 3am?


Or if you start to build resentment towards your partner because you feel they have more freedom to be independent than you do?


Or you are "touched-out" because of your baby's needs and don't want to be intimate, let alone have sex with your partner?

One more thing...

I want to write you a personal note if you're still considering joining The Partnerhood. I can't tell you how many couples I've worked with over the years in my private practice listening to the heartache that each person holds because things have slowly fallen apart. Countless couples have told me they feel like roommates after so many years together and they wish they would have come to me sooner.


This heartache is the #1 reason I wanted to create The Partnerhood. My goal is to help you avoid the relationship disintegration many couples face, especially after having kids. I want to save you from hours of therapy and spending thousands of dollars in an attempt to repair what you didn't even know you needed to address.


My passion is to give you the education and tools necessary for creating a beautiful life together as you grow your family. I have dedicated my time, knowledge, experience, and (dare I say) love into this course for you and your partner to remain friends throughout the transition into parenthood and raise your children with a strong foundation between you.


If this sounds like something you would benefit from and you take the step to join me, I know you'll make a difference not only in your relationship, but also for your kids.


Looking forward to walking with you in this journey!
