She also helps individuals and couples manage personal and relational conflicts and does pre-marriage coaching.

She helps parents to focus on the responsibilities of effective and purposeful parenting while living in separate households. The class assists parents in understanding the effects of separation or divorce on their children, the importance of supporting children financially, and a variety of conflict solving options.
