I used to be a psychotherapist, a Marriage & Family Therapist, but now I am a RELATIONSHIP COACH.
I have trained as a mental health professional and as a professional coach.
As a coach, I have no physical office, as our work together is primarily over the phone or via video conferencing, e.g. Skype, FaceTime & Zoom.
On a personal note, I am happily married for 28 years. I have two step-daughters and one granddaughter. My husband and I spend the winter in Florida where one daughter and granddaughter live and the reminder of the year in Connecticut where the other daughter lives.
