What if the issue is with a spouse/partner, but s/he doesn't want to come in?
Hi there! My name is Cari Sans, and I have been working as a Relationship Coach since the year 2000. With over two decades of experience in this field, I am passionate about helping couples create intentional and fulfilling relationships.
My journey began with seeing couples in therapy, but I also worked with individuals, families, and groups, and facilitated educational workshops. Over time, I noticed that my practice was attracting more and more couples who were struggling with conflict in their relationship. Around 2003, I began to specialize in working with couples in conflict, which ultimately led me to become a Couples Coach.
Today, I continue to invest in myself with continuing education and personal development to ensure that I am offering the most effective and up-to-date strategies to support my clients.
I have worked with many couples dealing with issues in their relationship and parenting concerns. I then became a parent myself and immersed myself not only in my role as a mom to three young boys but also in how to be an amazing parent. I have loved almost every minute of it, and it has allowed me to grow as a person.
I have been a client of therapy and coaching myself. Both have added so much to my life. I believe therapy can be a useful vehicle for helping individuals understand themselves better and to improve their lives. It wasn't until I started working with coaches that I really saw the benefit of this type of work, too.
In my own experience, coaching has propelled me further than I ever expected. For this very reason, I knew that I wanted to coach others to get the biggest impact in their lives.
I only work with clients that want to see results and move forward, beyond their challenges. I believe it is my destiny to help others to step into their role as leaders in their lives and to be a model for all others.
In addition to being a Relationship Coach, I am also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, but in this context, I am a coach and guide.
As the founder and director of Counseling Corner for Marriage and Family Therapy, P.C., and a New York State licensed marriage and family therapist, I hold a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am also certified in Human Interaction Technology, a neuro-linguistic programming coaching certification, and received my certificates to practice as a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach, Robbins-Madanes Strategic Life Coach, and Mentor Masterclass Coach.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked within the social service/mental health arena since 1995 in various roles. I have provided groups dealing with issues of weight loss, anger management, couple enhancement, parenting, and substance abuse. I have also presented workshops on anger management, families and Chronic Illness, parenting during a divorce, and eating extremes. In my career, I have worked with children, adolescents, and their families both in residential treatment and early childhood programs. Additionally, I have worked with adults in correctional and substance abuse treatment.
If you're looking for a coach who can help you move forward, beyond your challenges and create intentional and fulfilling relationships, then I'm here to help. Please feel free to call me, and we can talk more about how I can support you on your journey.
