I'm here for YOU and YOUR family

Real life teacher and therapist, Jan Talen

I'm Jan Talen,
a licensed marriage & family therapist since 1986.

avoid the D's that create Divorce
(distress, depression, disconnection, dismay, disregard..._)


I've worked with families, marriages and kids in many different situations. Marriage undergoes great stress when a little one is added to the household.
If that stress is not resolved, the marriage is often compromised and over time becomes “roommate or business-partner” status. 
The D's move in, and destroy the love you once knew.
Real life, and research affirm this sad truth over and over. 

 This is so very sad and very painful. 
And, it is fixable!


We will work practically and efficiently to build the skills needed to stay
couple- as well as kiddo-connected.

Yes, I have a lot of professional knowledge and skill.
I also have practical experience. My husband Chip and I have applied the DNA Way that you will learn.   
We've raised 4 steady, and sturdy kids, (now adults!) all while maintaining an authentic  and fun relationship.
It was not easy at times.
It was and is worth the work!

We worked through the tough stuff together. We may have missed the mark from time to time  but key components of staying in it together with give-and-take and graciousness  allowed us to make it through those parenting years. AND WE STILL USE THESE SKILLS TODAY! 

Discover how the DNA Way transforms
your marriage with kids to be
fun and fulfilling!

Of course, I would be glad to talk with you about any questions you may have as you consider joining the DNA  Way to Communicate.

DNA Way to Communicate Information Here!


Even if you're not ready to commit to joining the PROGRAM, or trying the FREE WORKSHOP, I still welcome you to listen to my podcasts.

Twice a month I bring you a PODCAST. Some serious, some whimsical, but all filled with insight and information on topics ranging from diapers to dinning that I believe will help you have a better marriage and be the parents you want to be. While still having FUN! 


The DNA WAY to Communicate

The DNA Way to Communicate is designed to provide you with practical ways to stay married well while parenting together.

The Program includes 8 short and to the point courses consisting of videos, workbooks, printable LEPs and group chats with other program participants. Jan Talen is directly involved with all chats. The purpose of the Program is to help grow your emotional and relationship skills and teach you how to apply them to your life.



I know this is a big commitment, that's why I offer a FREE WORKSHOP. It allows you to experience my teaching before joining the DNA Way to Communicate.

Professional and practical support is here! You'll see how you can gain confidence that is courageous and calm.
