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 ‚Äúroommate or business-partner‚Ä̬†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!
