Relationship Expert Norene Gonsiewski


norene gonsiewskiSince 1980, I have helped thousands of couples and individuals fix failing relationships, heal from affairs, guide blended families through challenging times and help couples build or restore lasting, passionate love.

Hello and welcome, I am Norene Gonsiewski. If you are an individual or couple seeking to improve your skills in romantic relationships, I can help you.

As a certified Imago Relationship Therapist and a graduate of The Relationship Coaching Institute, I provide the tools and resources you need to create the relationship you genuinely want. Together we work to rebuild broken trust, renew the passion, bring back the joy only a loving relationship can induce – and transcend the barriers that otherwise cause failure.


Your problems all have solutions

As your relationship mentor, I will never advise that you end your marriage. Your love, passion,
and joy can be restored. My lifework is to help couples like you create the marriage or relationship
of your dreams.

Different stages of marriage and relationships are fraught with difficulty. For instance, you may need new skills to help you enter the empty nest or retirement years as a couple so that love will prevail in a healthy and vibrant relationship.

Perhaps it feels like the thrill is gone. You’re defeated by the constant arguing, or the two of you are drifting apart from “too busy lives.” You may think your marriage cannot be saved.

I can help. Through our work together, you and your partner gain invaluable relationship skills, discover win-win solutions, and develop a blueprint for your ideal relationship.


Professional and life experience

In 1980 I married the love of my life and embarked on a path of teaching couples the tools for building a Rock Solid Relationship.

We all start out in romantic relationships with passion, excitement, fun, connection and a great deal of patience. Over time ALL relationships reach a stage of challenges. When the honeymoon is over couples can be shocked at the abrupt transition from soul-mates to cell-mates! But…with the right effort, you can return the romance, passion, and fun to your relationship.

I have dedicated my career to teaching and counseling couples through the challenges to forge a lasting love. I have been trained in several schools of marriage counseling and most recently in relationship coaching.

In 2016, with my colleague Tim Higdon, I coauthored Rock Solid Relationships: Seven Keys to Restore Your Connection and Make Your Love Last. From our decades of helping couples, we developed a counseling approach based on this award-winning book. In a style that is fun, warm, and professional, I will help you through the crunchy issues and smooth out the path ahead.

Norene is not currently accepting any new clients. Her schedule is full, and she will be retiring in December 2021. She highly recommends reaching out to her partner Tim Higdon for counseling help.
