My Approach to Helping

We're here to help you see that love doesn't have to be painful, even when it's hard.

You might look great on the outside. People see you as a cute, perfect couple. Inside your relationship is troubled by silence, arguments, an emotional chasm. We're here to show you love is tough but it doesn't have to be painful. You might feel alone, and even uncertain if you want to remain in the relationship. Perhaps you feel drained, or don't like who you have become. It's time to stop working so hard and getting so little in return. You deserve a path of healing -for each of you.

The Yoruba word Ibisanmi means "being born fits me". To us it means that we are each born to be enough, whole, complete. We are here to face life's blessings and challenges head on. Ibisanmi Relational Health hopes to help you reclaim this feeling in your life and your relationship.

We specialize in work with couples and individuals who feel stuck in relationships that don't fulfill them like they once did. Whether your relationship is three months or three decades old, we walk alongside you on a journey of fulfillment. Stop settling. Get what you deserve. We use our training to guide you and your partner to a deeper understanding of one another and your goals for the relationship. We empower you to leave behind toxic patterns of disrespect, criticism, defensiveness, silence, and distrust that erode your connection. We'll help you instead develop effective communication strategies to express your disappointment, fear, sadness, resentment, shame, anger, and anxiety in a healthy, productive way.

We're here to walk with you in reclaiming your strength, courage, and wisdom to build a fulfilling and healthy relationship and life. Schedule your free 15 minutes phone consultation above or visit us at

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

We hear you! And you being on the fence makes total sense to us. You don't want your "business" out to a stranger. At Ibisanmi Relational Health, we know that this thought can stop you from moving towards your healing. We're glad that you're still reading even with this thought in mind. We understand it's difficult to start on the therapy path even if you know it's important to your healing process. This is why we're committed to taking this critical journey with you. We're here to understand you and the issues you're dealing with, help you move towards your healing, and reclaim your wholeness.
