Shana is absolutely incredible. My communication with my husband has increased dramatically since our sessions with Shana. She takes time to really understand your needs and gives fun assignments to assist you in creating a deeper bond with your partner. I highly recommend Shana.

We love our sessions!

Since we started working with Shana we have seen marked improvement, especially around our communication. She has really helped us gain insight to each other’s needs and values.

Video sessions are awesome if you are nervous about going to a physical space, or that physical resource is not available to you. I was worried Video sessions wouldn’t be effective, but I actually like them. They are a great alternative!
