Shortly after my ex-husband and I separated, we attended a communication workshop headed by Rhona Berens. We have 2 small children and we knew we needed help in order to have an effective co-parenting relationship. While we always knew communication was important, we didn’t realize HOW we communicate was just as important. What we learned in Rhona’s workshop has helped us to better communicate with each other without anger. As a result, it has not only helped our co-parenting relationship, but our friendship. Our marriage may have ended, but our friendship continues, as does our family bond.

This program gave us a chance to get clarity prior to being sleep deprived and stressed by the changes that are associated with having a newborn. You are a great coach. We loved how animated you are and were impressed by your ability to really listen to us beyond our words. We found this program fun and therapeutic for us as a couple. Parent Alliance® is a platform to help visualize, create and actualize the future you envision for yourself as an individual, a couple and as parents and a program to help unify and clarify parents' goals and values prior to embarking upon the life changing experience of bringing their new baby into the world. The importance of working out potential differences and getting aligned as a couple prior to the arrival of the baby is also a huge selling point.

We had the great pleasure of having Rhona Berens speak at one of our Parent Workshops. The 2 hour workshop provided parents and staff with amazing tools to foster our relationships in conversations and during conflict not only with our partners but with our kids. Being a parent of three, I know how hard it is to take the time to communicate with my husband effectively but after the workshop I used the tools she suggested and was able to notice a huge difference right away. Rhona’s presentation was fun, interactive and parents were out of their seats role playing in each of her fostering ideas. Rhona created a safe environment which allowed parents to release emotion and frustration and help breakthroughs occur. Parents came back the next day saying that they have already started implementing the practices learned. We would love to continue to work with Rhona to learn more about her tools for communication.

We have been very fortunate to have Rhona as our relationship coach. She is very insightful, intelligent and passionate. She was able to help us recognize relationship toxins that were sabotaging our relationship. Most importantly, Rhona creates a comfortable and safe environment for couples. She was there for both of us, never taking sides or making judgments; helping us understand the other person's point of view. It is very hard to say in a few words the positive impact her coaching has brought to our lives. Now, months later, we still see the positive impact of her coaching. Thanks, Rhona!
