How I discovered the key to healthy communication in tough "make or break" moments.

I grew up in a family of brothers and then i became an engineer

In other words, I've spent most of my life living and working with men.

And that's what makes me so great at helping women with their relationships with men. Because I have a lot of male relationships!

But things haven't always gone smoothly for me.

I've walked away from more than one job because my relationship with my boss became unsalvageable.

And I nearly walked away from my marriage because I didn't see a way out of the conflict and hostility in our relationship.

And then I discovered that I could speak up for myself without alienating my people.

My marriage got a lot easier when I stopped trying to choose between being liked and being heard.

This is the work I guide my clients through in Respected + Connected.

If you want to be more liked AND more heard in your relationships I can share tools that will get you there.
