Welcome! I’m Jessica, a couples therapist and relationship coach with over 10 years of experience helping couples navigate relationship challenges. In this podcast, we focus on building stronger, more loving connections by tackling common issues like communication struggles, trust problems, loneliness, and the need for appreciation, intimacy, and connection. We dive deep into the world of love consciousness and its link to spirituality, exploring practical ways to connect with your higher power through meditation and self-help techniques. Each episode sheds light on barriers to love consciousness—such as past trauma and internal struggles—that make forgiveness and love challenging. My goal is to encourage you to become a relationship visionary, someone who sees their relationship as a higher purpose and strives to ensure both partners feel valued and connected. I discuss overcoming challenges and creating a relationship where both partners are respected and understood. Join me on this transformative journey to better relationships. Let’s work together to cultivate love and connection in your life. Subscribe now and start your path to a more conscious and loving relationship. read less
