In my practice, I work with both couples and individuals in all matters of the heart.
Couples Coaching: I bring a structured approach to couples coaching informed heavily by the Gottman Couples Therapy Method. I begin with a comprehensive assessment of the relationship itself to understand its strengths and growth areas. I then present you and your partner with a coaching strategy comprised of research-backed exercises and interventions to help you and your partner have more productive conflict while building friendship and intimacy. In session, I create a safe and supportive space and encourage a dyadic experience (meaning the real work happens between you and your partner). In addition to the Gottman method, my major influences are Esther Perel, Jack Morin, and Amir Levine.
Individual Coaching: I provide a positive, supportive, encouraging space to explore any and all concerns, hopes, or questions you may have about your love life. At the same time, I always challenge my clients with growth exercises designed to put them a bit outside of their comfort zone. My most significant influences in individual Coaching are John Kim, Shaun Galanos, Jack Morin, and Matthew Hussey.
I have always found romantic dynamics to be utterly fascinating, ever since a very young age. My goal is to help people with matters closest to their heart, and nothing comes closer than the most intimate relationships in their lives.
Working with me feels fun, uplifting, and a bit challenging, in a good way.
"Have you ever had a moment in a relationship where you wanted so badly to reach your goals but you didn’t know where to start or you didn’t have the tools to get you to that place you so desire? Well, through our experience with Proactive Partnership Coaching with Lane we were able to break through those barriers and collaborate together to achieve our goals. As a couple we care deeply about each other’s personal growth but we are also very passionate about partnering on a project.
Lane is able to help us navigate the communication with us as we grow our own business together. With each session, Lane continues to give us the space and the tools to reach our goals as a couple. The benefits of proactive partnership coaching with Lane is the fact the coaching doesn’t stop with the session. Lane is diligent with her communication with us as a couple and provides the tools, resources and time for reflection. She ensures we leave each session with valuable actions to move forward and holds each of us accountable to the growth we so desire.
As a couple, it is a challenge to find a professional we could be vulnerable with and share the ins and outs of our relationship. Lane has time and time again proven she is here for us as a couple, to protect our personal conversations and to grow us as both individuals and ultimately as a couple. Ultimately, Lane makes us both feel respected and heard. Our favorite part of Proactive Partnership Coaching is the growth and bond we felt as a couple just after one session.
Lane has a knack for diving deep and opening us up to focus on the true areas we desire growth. Lane sees both our struggles and our strengths, she allows for the conversation to flow naturally where it needs to yet does not allow us to stray off course if it is not productive. Lane’s proactive partnership coaching takes our strengths and amplifies them while also allowing us to study and learn where our challenges are within our relationship."

"Lane's coaching was monumental in helping me move past my mental roadblocks and become more confident with who I am and what I want in my life and in a relationship. She is such an easy person to talk to that it felt like I was just catching up with a friend every time we talked. I really looked forward to our calls because she was able to help me break down my feelings, navigate my thoughts and emotions and give me clear action items to work on before our next session. I respected her direction so much that I never wanted to let her down which motivated me to have uncomfortable or difficult conversations that led to better outcomes. I'm so appreciative of the time she spent with me and can't wait to see where our coaching goes next."
"Going through dating coaching with Lane has been a wonderful experience. Some of the issues we tackled were
reframing old limiting beliefs, vocalizing my wants, needs and desires in a way that made me feel empowered, and expressing my emotional-romantic side. Lane has been very supportive in the ups and downs of dating, helping me articulate my thoughts and feelings, bringing clarity and an open mindset to work through the roadblocks. Throughout this journey, Lane provided powerful insights and resources that have served me beyond partnership."
"I started working with Lane to learn what makes a relationship successful and last long. She did a great job with explaining the basic principles of relationship in a very simple and easy-to-understand way. She has a very relaxed and conversational format to her sessions and she spends a lot of time listening to you actively. As a result, her sessions feel personalized and don't feel like a standard cookie cutter approach. She has a growth-oriented approach with her clients and at the end of each session she gave me challenges which focused on implementing the learning and insights from our sessions into real life. With these sessions, she pushed me to step out of my comfort zone one step at a time which not only helped me learn new things about relationships but more importantly, helped me identify existing habits that were stunting my potential to make meaningful and lasting connections . Her sessions felt tailor-made for me and I have made noticeable progress in my interactions with people and my outlook towards relationships after just 6 sessions with her. I absolutely plan to do more sessions with her in the future and hopefully with my future partner."
"We can all agree that 2020 presented many challenges, but it also presented opportunities for us to overcome these challenges! Having the chance to work with Lane was one of those opportunities for me; to gain a professional's viewpoint of dating in a quite literal virtual world. Lane wasn't just someone I talked to on the other end of a camera, she was warm and personable, making me feel extremely comfortable, enough to be open to hearing where my roadblocks were. The discussions never ended there though, there was always homework/exercises for me to practice what I'd learned in our sessions. Lane is a great listener, presents herself professionally yet welcoming and friendly, and is deeply knowledgeable yet open to learning more herself. I highly recommend Lane to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life. You will absolutely benefit from her outside perspective and challenges to make the changes we need to grow."
