Over the years I have developed a systematic approach working with couples called, The Heart Path. The system offers a unique point of view that has helped hundreds of couples and thousands of individuals see new possibilities for their relationships.
I started my coaching career in 1995, and have designed and produced more than 25 classroom series for strengthening couples in their relationships. The common theme that lives within everything at The Stages of Love is Partners For Life, partners committed to life versus a life sentence.
