What people are saying

“My husband and I scheduled a time to discuss our parenting techniques and how to deal with discipline and consequences. Lisa helped navigate us towards understanding what was important to both my husband and I as we raise our children. Our time together focusing on this element of parenting has tremendously impacted our daily life with our kids and has created a much more consistent and happy home. Lisa allows both parents to share in a very comfortable and safe environment. I am forever grateful for our time in coaching. We look forward to utilizing Lisa’s services again in the future. I highly recommend Couples Coaching with Lisa to any couple desiring growth and fulfillment in their relationship and family.”
