Denise Fitzpatrick, M.Ed., LMHC

Owner and founder of My Marriage Works coaching.  I am a licensed mental health counselor (over 20 years), turned Marriage Coach/Mentor.  I am passionate about saving marriages and keeping families together.  After opening my own practice in 2007, I quickly realized that coupes therapy was an entirely different skill set than individual therapy. 

Feeling ill prepared to help couples I embarked on a decade long journey of training in the most well known, research based approaches to couples therapy, including Gottman, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and advanced training in the Developmental Model of couples therapy.  I’ve been specializing in helping women (and couples) create happy, healthy, thriving relationships for more than 12 years.

Through my years of specialized training and countless hours helping hundreds of couples, I have developed my own framework/process to help people heal their marriages quickly and permanently.  

I am kind and compassionate but have an active and direct approach. Which is a must when it comes to helping you with your marriage.    You may be feeling there’s no hope for your marriage right now, but let me tell you, I’ve helped hundreds of married women & couples heal and strengthen their marriage even when they had lost hope, even when they thought it wasn’t possible.  This is possible for you too!  

I’ve been married for 23 years and have had the experience of healing my own marriage through the exact methods I teach my clients.  I love being married to my hubby and being the mom of two young men, 19 and 21 and two fur babies.
