Hello! I’m Kendal Edwards
I am a marriage coach and sex specialist. I have been studying relationships and human behavior for the entirety of my adult life. I have always believed that our relationships are the most important parts of our lives. Our relationship with our family, friends, partners, and especially our relationship with ourselves; has the ability to affect all other areas of our lives. That is why it is so important that we cultivate an enviornment where we are healthy, supported and loved by those that we choose to have relationships with.
I help individuals create healthy, loving, and fulfilling relationships. My relationship coaching is rooted in proven research based methods of Couples Therapy. As a black polyamorous woman, I aim to reach the most marginalized communities and provide access to quality care and relationship coaching. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives. As such, I am trained to listen and observe. My approach is customized based on each clients individual and unique needs
My goal as your coach is to make myself replaceable. I dont want to see you every week for the next 3 years. I want to be able to give you tools that you can use on your own to create healthy, fulfilling, and long-lasting relationships.
My system works best for couples who are either currently struggling to connect and communicate with each other or couples who have suffered a betrayal and looking to heal what has been broken. All clients must have been together for at least 1 year before joining my program. I have created a proven step-by-step program that I will guide you through, and teach you how to love your partner without losing yourself.
I use a cognitive behavioral approach that focuses on retraining your brain to think differently to produce a better perspective and productive behavior. I also incorporate holistic elements such as mindfulness techniques, meditation, guided breathing, and self-awareness training. I want to help you achieve your own goals of health and self-actualization. Here you will find my professional column of relationship tools as well as guidelines for creating sustainable relationships.
If you don’t do anything to improve your relationship today, how will it get better tomorrow?
Coaching is an investment in yourself, however I am aware that the cost may be a barrier to the people who may need my services the most. To ensure that my services are accessible to all, I have initiated a “pay-what-you-can” option for low-income or financially disadvantaged individuals. I have limited spaces available in this program so please call or email now. If you believe that you may qualify for this discount please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Do I really need therapy?
Therapy is beneficial for everyone not just for those who are on the verge of breaking up or those who have experienced trauma. My resources will give you the tools you need to cope with the daily stresses of life and become the healthiest you that you can be.
What will it cost?
Marriage counseling is often not covered by the American healthcare system insurances. I have set my prices to increase access for people who often can not afford such services. Families who qualify for state benefits will be priced on a sliding scale at my discretion. I do not accept insurance. Being paneled with insurance companies can drastically limit the services I can provide. I prefer to design your relationship counseling around your needs rather than your insurance company’s needs. Therapy is an investment in yourself, your relationships and your future. All new clients will be encouraged to invest in themselves and the health of their relationships, the stakes are high.
How do I pay?
I collect payment at the end of each session. I accept debit/credit and multiple payment apps such as paypal and Venmo.
Who are these services directed towards?
My services are available to all people. However, my expertise is in African American relationships. Because I am so passionate about relationship therapy, my practice is focused on couples, families, and individuals who would like to address interpersonal relationship issues only.
How much time should I commit?
I ask that for general couples counseling you commit to one hour a week for at least four months. After that we can discuss your progress and assess if weekly appointments are still helping or if moving to biweekly would work. As time goes by, the intention is to lengthen the time between appointments and eventually you would just come in for periodic tune-ups
Premarital counseling is usually done over a three- to six-month period. You can come in once a week or every other week until all eight – ten sessions are complete.
Divorce counseling varies a great deal, but I do request that you commit to weekly appointments for the first month and then at least biweekly appointments after that. Over time we will then cut down to monthly meetings and then check-in appointments every few months.
Need to Cancel?
I ask that if you are not going to be able to attend a session that you cancel 48 hours ahead of time. I understand, life happens and sometimes you will need to take a break for a week. For last minute cancellations I like to be reasonable so, the first time you have a late cancellation there will simply be a $45 fee. In the future, however, if you cancel with less than 48 hours, you will be charged your full session fee. Last minute or continual cancellations can be indicative of your commitment level to the counseling process.
