Welcome to the place where your LOVE and BUSINESS succeed together!

Hi, I’m Lorena. I’m an expert couples’ therapist turned writer, mentor and coach who’s run three businesses over the course of twenty plus years of marriage.

The businesses I developed and ran were focused on helping others, especially couples.

As a fellow Entrepreneur in a committed relationship myself, I now help Entrepreneurs and their Intimate Partners succeed at both LOVE and BUSINESS.

I know what it’s like to grow a business from scratch.
I know what it’s like to come into a business that’s in the red and make it profitable.

And believe me, I know what it’s like to be “busier than a one-armed paperhanger” and in a committed relationship at the same time.

The GOOD NEWS for you…

♥ I know what works

I’m an expert in working with couples

I’ve been here myself

Let’s make sure your relationship succeeds despite the demands of the business.

One of the most powerful tools I developed to help your relationship is a plan I call the Agile™ Relationship Plan.  When we work together, I’ll help you create a plan to manage:

  • The time starvation because let’s face it, there is NEVER enough time
  • The stress of the ups and downs of the business (financial, managerial, growth projections, the blindsides, etc.)
  • The necessary compromises from becoming sacrifices
  • The resentment and loneliness that develops before you know it

I developed the Agile™ Relationship Plan to specifically help Entrepreneurs and their Partners.

I did this because your relationship has needs that are unique and different from other relationships who don’t suffer from the demands of business building.

Balancing the demands of THE BUSINESS and the needs of YOUR RELATIONSHIP is beyond difficult.

I understand your struggle.

Let me help you.
