Dr. Denita Hudson, PhD, ICP, NCC

You already know you love your family. You and your spouse chose to live life together and share experiences, for some version of better or worse, but lately it’s been worse than you imagined it could be.

All of us are familiar with the idea of a mission statement.  In organizations the mission statement drives decisions and keeps everyone anchored to a shared passion and purpose.

Your marriage needs a mission statement too. A way of assuring that you and your spouse stay connected, clear about priorities and united in actions. A road map that says where are you going and defines success. Marriages change over time. It’s ok if the mission changes too. Children grow up, new passions develop, and individual needs fluctuate. But taking time to stay connected means that you can both take part in recreating the vision that you’ll both work to accomplish.

Are you just beginning your journey as a couple, or have you been married for some time and lost sight of your shared goals? My role is to help you create a shared vision with respect for all parties while also reconnecting with the love and desire your marriage was founded on.
