NOTE: Marriage SOS is NOT suitable in cases of abuse, trauma, mental illness/disorder
or where crisis intervention is required. Seek help from the appropriate resource – such
as the police or a mental health practitioner – ASAP.

Marriage SOS takes a three-stage approach:


S: Stabilize the situation so that matters do not become worse and partners are able to keep the lines of communication open, work together and begin to move forward.

O: Overcome specific problems via practical measures and improved interactions and communication, so that couples can understand their issues, resolve them, and re-commit to their relationship.

S: Strengthen the overall relationship (i.e. communication, intimacy, interactions, finances, parenting, the use of technology, etc.) so that couples can enjoy a happier, healthier relationship in the future.

Deb, we’ve been to couples therapists in the past and got nothing but vacant stares and head nodding. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. I believe that you literally saved our marriage. You are a straight shooter and told us exactly what we both needed to hear without just pointing fingers.

Our kids have noticed a huge difference in mood in the house, and I actually look forward to walking in the door now to smiles and hugs. We've also been following the budget and I'm not nearly as stressed about the useless spending. Thanks again.

You were a blessing to me when I needed it most. I thought my relationship was over but you helped me bring it back from the very brink. We have never been happier in our ten years together. If I ever know anyone who is having relationship problems I will refer you with every confidence.

Not only did you make time to talk to me right away, you made me give my head a shake and see the ways I was making it impossible for my husband to feel any love for me. I used the strategies you suggested and it was like things changed overnight. My only regret is that I waited years before calling you.
