  1. Which course is best for me?

Break Free From Relationship Anxiety:

This is Sheryl’s foundational course, and it’s the only course that addresses relationship anxiety from the root. It doesn’t matter if your anxiety began on the first date or twenty years into marriage. It doesn’t matter if you’re 20 or 65. It doesn’t matter where you live, your gender, or your sexual orientation. If you’re suffering from relationship anxiety, this course offers the information, tools, and support – including a highly moderated, highly populated forum – to help you break free and open your heart to love.

This course is self-paced, and you can sign up at any time.

Conscious Weddings

If your relationship anxiety started near the wedding transition – engagement, wedding, or first year of marriage – and you do not have a history of anxiety and intrusive thoughts – I recommend that you start with the Conscious Weddings Course. This is a self-paced course that you can start at any time.

The following 30 and 40 day courses are offered live 1-2 times a year, and they all include access to group coaching calls with Sheryl and support through the moderated forum. There is also an option to take these courses on your own at any time and join the live portion the next time it’s offered.

Open Your Heart:

If you’re struggling with lack of feeling in love and attracted to your partner and you want to learn the Love Laws and Loving Actions that will help you grow healthy love, this course is for you.

Trust Yourself:

This course is for you if you struggle with the fear of failure, caring what others think, perfectionism, difficulty making decisions, and self-doubt. Lack of self-trust is also at the heart of anxiety and intrusive thoughts, and this course has helped hundreds of people heal this root cause of suffering.

Sacred Sexuality:

This is an in-depth, radical yet gentle course for women who struggle with lack of desire, body image, intimate touch, affection, or low drive.

Grace Through Uncertainty:

To address health anxiety, money anxiety, and the fear of loss and death that lives at the heart of most manifestations of anxiety.


  1. What is the difference between Break Free From Relationship Anxiety and Open Your Heart?

See this page. 


  1. What is relationship anxiety?

Relationship anxiety can be defined as pervasive doubts about a healthy, loving relationship. These doubts usually begin with a thought like, “Do I love my partner enough?” or “What if I’m not in love or attracted enough?” and spirals from there into anxiety that interferes with your ability to be present in your relationship. It can begin at any time in a relationship and it doesn’t matter if you never had an infatuation stage.


  1. Do your courses deal with R-OCD and H-OCD?

While my courses don’t directly use the terms R-OCD and H-OCD, the Break Free From Relationship Anxiety Course does address the root causes of these issues. However, I work a bit differently from the traditional treatment of ROCD or HOCD in that I dig deeper into the roots of the intrusive thoughts and recognize them as cover-ups for deep wells of pain and false beliefs that need attention. They’re like flares that your inner self is sending up as a way to get your attention, but they’re not the truth. Working with the thoughts on the surface level may offer short-term relief but it doesn’t address them at the core, which requires pulling them out by the roots. This is what the course will teach you.


  1. Are you accepting new clients?

Yes, I offer 50-minute coaching sessions, which you can learn more about here. click here.


  1. Are your courses Christian based?

My courses and programs are not Christian based. However, many people of Christian faith have taken my courses over the years and have benefitted enormously from them.


  1. Are your courses religious?

My courses are not religiously affiliated. I do talk about connecting to the highest part of yourself, but this does not require any specific religious or spiritual beliefs.


  1.  What do you consider “red-flag issues” in an intimate relationship?

Addiction: Alcohol, drugs, spending, sex

Abuse: Emotional, physical, one person is deeply controlling around how the other person spends their time, behaves, etc.

Personality Disorder: Shows signs of narcissistic personality disorder (is unwilling to sacrifice themselves for another person; isn’t willing to let go of lifestyle of a single person in terms of time commitments – i.e. doesn’t really want to be married and would rather continue in the free and unrestricted lifestyle of being single); compulsive lying

Irreconcilable Differences in Core Values: Having children, child raising practices, religion. Having different religious beliefs is only a red flag if you haven’t been able to come to agreements regarding how you’ll raise your children and other practices that may affect your family life.

Unwillingness to Grow: Your partner refuses to take responsibility for their wounds, never apologizes, and is unwilling to trudge through the hard times with you. Both people have to be willing to grow and change if a relationship is going to sustain in the long term.

Having different interests is NOT a red flag! And having relationship anxiety is not a red flag.
