General Information for Everyone

About the Process: Educational coaching focuses on building knowledge and skills for healthy individuals and couples. It is not counseling or therapy. We begin with where you are at now and move you forward in your life and relationship. Being a successful client with this type of coaching requires that you commit to studying between sessions and trying new behaviors. Susanne’s approach tends to include spiritual perspectives; these can be tailored to a specific faith as needed.

Susanne works with:

  • Individuals who want to be in a relationship, and
  • Individuals and couples committed to their relationship or marriage who need help to assess and strengthen their interactions

She can recommend potential materials to seriously troubled couples, but she will refer you to a counselor for in-depth work.

Individual and Couple Sessions generally occur by Skype, Facetime, Google Hangout, telephone, and email.

Cost: The cost is $90/hour except in cases of strong hardship. Usually clients also require some materials and books, and these will generally be invoiced as used. Sessions can be any length as needed from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Frequency is determined together. There is no insurance reimbursement.

Payment: Assessments, sessions, and materials are invoiced via PayPal. You can pay through a PayPal account or a credit card; an account is not required. Prompt payment of the invoice is required.

To Begin: Send an email to Susanne at or through the contact form on the site with a request and brief description of services needed. She will provide a client information form to complete and arrange for an appointment. Susanne does her best to respond within 24 hours. If you need service faster, please call or text 423-599-0153 (US Eastern time, 9 a.m.-8 p.m.).

  • Building knowledge and skills
  • Ways of transforming your couple interactions
  • Addressing specific areas of concern

Couples’ Assessment Process

Couples can choose to participate in a detailed assessment process. The PREPARE (unmarried) and the ENRICH (married) assessments identify each couple’s unique strength and growth areas. They generally cover these areas:

  • Commitment Level & Expectations
  • Relationship Dynamics/Styles & Habits/Personal Stress Profile/Personalities
  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Spiritual Beliefs
  • Character Traits
  • Cultural/Ethnic Issues
  • Financial Management
  • Leisure Activities
  • Closeness & Flexibility in Couple and Family
  • Sexual Expectations/Issues
  • Children/Parenting
  • Family & Friends
  • Retirement and Aging Issues (where applicable)

Process: You provide Susanne with the names and email addresses of both people who will participate. You will receive an email link to an online assessment that you do individually without discussing it while in progress. It takes about 30-45 minutes for each person. After you have both completed the assessment, Susanne will be notified that your reports are ready. You will receive a couple’s report when you begin to discuss the content, which is a subset of Susanne’s facilitator report, and a couple’s workbook.

The report will give Susanne a good view of the current state of your relationship or marriage and where strengthening and learning are needed. Then you will set up an appointment. You will talk through the results of your report and set learning goals for what you want to improve. Couples have learning and activity work to do between sessions. Some materials are no cost, and some have a small charge.

Time required: It takes about 30-45 minutes for each person to answer the assessment questions. Coaching that follows is generally like this: Premarital couples-about 3 hours. Married couples usually require a series of sessions over time.

Cost: The initial report is $50. Sessions are $90/hour except in cases of strong hardship.

Note: PREPARE/ENRICH is a scientifically proven process that has helped over 3 million couples for over 30 years. Susanne customizes her work with couples from a foundation of the facilitator report and discussion with the couples by adding her own developed materials.
