My husband and I have been married 22 years and were just in a bit of a lull in our marriage - not at the point of breaking up but not getting along great. We were struggling with communication issues and were certainly not happy and thriving. So we started working with Kara, and in the past year she really has helped us to turn around how things are going in our marriage. Of-course, it's not perfect - but it never will be perfect or easy, and she's helped us both learn some new tools and understand new ways to think about or approach things that have made a huge difference for us. She has an incredible talent for putting in to words those feelings or ideas that you maybe didnt understand yourselves, which helps you to identify and clarify why you act or feel certain ways, and having that understanding can only help you work toward the goal of improving your relationship as well as yourself personally. She is adept at being able to help you reframe how you understand or think about issues and is able to help you approach things from a new perspective that sheds new light on the way you relate with and treat each other as well as how you feel about yourself. Never have I felt judged by her, while at the same time she has graciously helped me recognize some things that I could work on. She is always conscious about making sure we both feel heard and respected. I most definitely would highly recommend working with her to help improve or strengthen the most important relationship in your life, whether you are in a new relationship/marriage or have many years under your belts together. Its worth putting some work in to it, and Kara is the one to provide support and guidance along the way.
