Psychologist and Couples Coach
I am a mother, wife, and a clinical and sport psychologist, whose husband works out of state half the year.
I created Together Apart to support couples and families who are often apart by strengthening their relationships and providing tools that promote overall wellness and resilience. I incorporate my personal journey and expertise into my podcasts, programs, consultations and speaking engagements.
The podcast allows me to draw on my personal and professional experience while I interview my skilled guests to provide an unmatched experience for listeners and readers alike.
My husband Matt and I live in North Carolina where we are raising our family. We spend about 60% of our marriage apart due to Matt’s demanding work schedule. Together we work to maintain connection across physical distance.
