Hi, we’re Katie & Mike

We are a happily married couple, continually working toward finding our ultimate happiness.  We are here to share our story with you, and some of the lessons we learned along the way!

We are both classical musicians – Mike, a trumpet player, and Katie an opera singer.  We both used to work 90 hours a week, were doing unfulfilling work, and hardly ever saw each other.

As a result, our marriage started falling apart.  We started fighting constantly, and soon we began to grow apart.  We both felt trapped, unloved, misunderstood, and unhappy in our marriage.  We were headed toward divorce.

But that was when things started to change.  Slowly, we started to make small changes in our marriage.  We learned how to communicate, and how to listen.  We’ve learned how to rebuild trust, and how to forgive each other.  

It certainly wasn’t easy, and it was a lot of work to fight for our marriage.  But it was absolutely worth it. Most importantly, we’ve learned that our marriage is at the center of our happiness, and it’s something worth protecting.

Our marriage used to be last on our priority list after our careers, friends, families, and beyond. We decided to change our lives to fit our marriage, and we’re happier than ever.

Is your marriage in a crisis? Have no idea where to turn?

You're in the right place.

We’ve been where you are.  It hurts.  It’s confusing, isolating, and scary – not knowing how to get through to your spouse, no matter what you try. 

We believed that we were going to end up like a jaded, cynical, bitter couple. We started listening to all the people that say, “You’ll never be happy in a marriage. You’ll hate each other after a year together.”  We thought it was inevitable to be unhappy and struggle in our life together.

We were wrong.  And we’re happy to say, you’re wrong too. We’re not claiming that its simple or easy.  But we do know that real change is possible. It’s possible to fall in love again.  You can learn how to communicate better, how to rebuild trust, and how to forgive.

If you want to know how you can save your marriage, be sure to book a call with us, attend our online workshop, and read our blog.  Saving your marriage is possible, with the right help.  We’re here to help you through it.

Why we chose Marriage Mentoring

When our marriage was in crisis, we didn’t have anyone to help us, and we had no idea how to fix our marriage problems.

We didn’t have the time for couples counseling.  We were hesitant to seek the support of family our of fear of tarnishing our relationships with them.  Most of our friends gave bad advice.  We were completely alone.

But once we made it through the other side of our marriage problems, we wanted to help couples who have faced the same difficulty that we did.

We want to help you have the marriage you want and deserve – a happy marriage that brings joy and meaning to your life.  We hope to meet you, and work with you soon.
