I am creative, fun loving and an out-of- the-box thinker. My genuineness and years of experience restoring and enhancing relationships, in a variety of settings, can be a treasure chest for you.

“My work is heavy and involves connections that truly bond my couples in their relationship and with me. I sit in my office with couples as they share their fears, traumas, and pain. We cry together, we walk through the darkest storms together, we build together and we grow together. I am the keeper of the secrets and the stories of healing, the stories of love, the moments that make us or break us but always move us forward. I believe that everyone has purpose, value, and is deserving of love. At times throughout our lives we face difficulties and tribulations that may taint our views. I want to walk with others and help them find hope and experience healing in their lives,” Ehrhard says.
