Couple Check-Up

Your Routine Maintenance for Love

Fast relationship tune-ups for returners.

As an exclusive offering for returning couples who have participated in one of my 8-hour marriage prep programs, I offer quick couple check-up sessions to help you keep your relationship on track and thriving!

These are great around your anniversary when you’re looking to reconnect and realign for the coming year, or to prepare for an upcoming transition. Maybe finances were a non-issue when you were dating, but merging finances as newlyweds is posing challenges. Perhaps you’re preparing to become parents and want to discuss expectations and roles in more depth. 

Remember, I am not a therapist, so check-up sessions are intended to be standalone “boosters” for couples looking to make small tweaks and shifts to keep things moving along smoothly (going from “good” to “great”).

Check-up sessions are offered virtually. Participate from the comfort of your home, in your PJs if you want, and skip the commute!

Using a variety of research-based curricula and/or check-up assessments, the sessions will be customized to refresh you on relevant skills and concepts. I’ll help you and your partner work through guided discussions and targeted exercises together, and equip you with new insights and approaches you can put into action right away.

Note: Couple check-ups are delivered as educational virtual coaching sessions for relationship enrichment and are NOT intended to be therapy. If you consider yourselves in distress, or if you have concerns related to abuse, infidelity, addiction, or mental illness, please contact me for a list of counseling/therapy resources that may be helpful to you. All relationships hit rough patches, and it’s really smart to enlist a qualified third party for help. You’d see a doctor for chronic pain or a worsening medical condition…treat your relationship with the same care.


Kara’s practical approach to relationship building and tips have made us a lot stronger as a couple and empowered me to be a better husband to my wife. Our work with Kara helped us tackle some of the bigger issues (money, family planning, intimacy) that honestly no sane couple should address without some assistance. I look forward to participating in further workshops down the road with Kara as she really is that helpful. To the future husbands that are on the fence about working with Kara; my advice to is to do it. As it will pay dividends for years to come.”

“Kara is so relatable and easy to talk to. We went into private sessions with her needing guidance on some of the big marriage decisions, like family and financial planning. We learned so much about each other and left with the tools for a successful marriage. Highly recommend, will definitely see her again.”

Our time with Kara did not disappoint! We learned skills, tips and tricks to help us through just about any situation or problem. On top of that, Kara expertly broke down some of the things that were keeping is from realizing our relationship’s full potential with wonderful examples from her own relationship and from her studies. Kara is a great communicator, fun and personable. If we ever need a refresher on some of the points we learned, there’s no question that we will reach out to her. We’d highly recommend Kara’s sessions to anyone!!”

“We are in a good place and wanted to ensure we have the tools to fix any conflicts in the future…The tools are really helpful and you present them in a meaningful way.”
