Bonnie’s Philosophy

Dr. Bonnie Kennan, Relationship ConuselorAre you feeling hopeless about your relationship? Do you long for a deeper connection?
Do you want to feel loving toward your partner again?


Research tells us that happily married people are healthier, emotionally and physically, than their single counterparts. They are wealthier, have stronger immune systems, and have more sex. They even live longer.


Your healthy and loving relationship is worth fighting for. I want to help you to do that.


My commitment to help you thrive in your relationships is unwavering. I have dedicated the last two decades to couple’s therapy. I have a no-nonsense approach to marriage therapy. And as my male clients will tell you, I am husband-friendly.


Relationships challenge us, but they are necessary for personal growth; emotional maturity is not possible in isolation.


Relationships struggle because of behavior, not chemistry, and you reap what you sow. Marriage should be a celebration of love, respect, and passion, while being a safe emotional home when life gets tough. Given the right guidance and tools, it can be.


My job is to help you discover your strengths and teach you how to use them to strengthen your marriage.


I have earned my Doctorate in Counseling Psychology and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy.I am also a Master Certified Relational Life Therapist, Certified PAIRS therapist, and a Certified Group Psychotherapist.
