Why Pay for Coaching?

The Next Dance

The Next Dance

When a long-term romantic relationship ends, getting into another relationship is not typically, something we are remotely interested in doing.  Depending on how or why the relationship ended, it may be years before we feel strong enough to open ourselves up to the idea of dating.
