from despair to hope as a couple… Working with Kerry has changed

me and our relationship in ways I never imagined possible.”

“The couples I most like to work with are honestly the hardest couples — the high conflict, in crisis, sometimes right-on-the-edge-of-divorce folks. Because in the end I truly believe that in crisis there is opportunity, and that when people are shook-up it’s not just a sign of trouble but also of hope and potential. We have a chance to stick our hands in the fire and really change things and re-choreograph old, stuck patterns.”

The Founder and Director of the Center, Kerry mixes heart, grit, rigor and irrepressible creativity to bring couples out of crisis. She has spent years refining an approach to couples work that is grounded in the latest state-of-the-art science of the field and tempers it with her own unique blend of make-it-work practicality.  

Research shows that people learn best when they’re put into situations similar to where they are struggling, and Kerry’s strength lies in skillfully guiding couples into those places where the emotion is rawest but where opportunities for growth are most significant. Kerry is regarded by many as the go-to couples therapist when all else fails.
