One of her specialties is helping couples improve communication, eliminate patterns of conflict that break down the relationship, rekindle romance, work through intimacy issues, and enrich their relationships.

She is a certified Rapid Change therapist, and co-facilitates women's groups on relationships, self-esteem, relationships, communication, self-hypnosis, spirituality, and love.
