Listen, I’ve SO been there.

After the honeymoon period of marriage, my husband and I struggled with the dilemma of staying connected.
Jobs, Kids, Hobbies, Activities, Friends and Family

So many things pulling us in different directions.  We needed a simple, easy solution to stay connected and deepen our intimacy. We wanted to make our marriage stronger. We found the solution in the concept of SPICE.

17 years later, I can honestly say our marriage is stronger and we have a deeper connection than on our wedding day.  

And, we aren’t the only ones who have benefited from these tools.  Hundreds of my fertility coaching clients can attest to these simple tools improving communication and strengthening their marriage.

“I think it’s wonderful! The SPICE concept is something more difficult to understand because it seems so opposite of society today. But the way Holly portrays SPICE, adding her own personal experience, makes it very easy to understand.”
