Host: Dr. Jackie Black
If you think your marriage is in trouble, it probably is. Falling in love is easy. Staying in love can be more challenging than you ever imagined. Marriages don’t suddenly crumble and fall apart.

Over time there are many assaults on your hopes and dreams of “…happily ever after.” And then, for some reason, you notice – you are a Couple In Trouble. If you’d like to stop the chaos and seriously build the happy relationships you’ve always wanted, then you are in the right place.
Join your Host, Dr. Jackie Black, an internationally recognized Couples in Trouble Relationship Expert.

Marriage, under the best of circumstances, can be challenging. That couples actually co-create loving, intimate and lasting marriages is nothing short of a testament to them as individuals and the attention and intention they bring to their love, to their marriage and to each other.

A Personal Message To You From Dr. Jackie
I bring a unique combination of academic expertise and training, as well as personal experience to my Marriage Coaching clients, Podcast listeners and Blog readers. I was married right out of college, divorced for many years when my children were young, met and married Mark, the love of my life, and lived happily ever-after until his death from cancer in 2005. I am “Nana” to twins who have enriched my life beyond measure.
I am passionate about co-creating the coach-client relationship, which is the foundation of this vigorous change process we call coaching. I am the advocate for the relationship and the holder of the possibilities for every couple I am privileged to work with.
Weaving the textures of your life experience with those of another, to create a fabric richer than your wildest expectations, is possible!
