Meet Marie

Marie Kane

 Hello, I’m Marie Kane.

I have been helping women and men create positive, successful, fulfilling relationships at home and at work as a marriage counselor and family therapist, as a corporate consultant and as a relationship coach for over 40 years.  My specialties include: Relationship Coaching; Conflict Resolution for Couples; Determining the Make or Break Criteria for Your Relationships, Conflict Resolution for Managers and Executives, Relationship Management for Managers and Executives; Team Building and Executive Coaching.

I am the creator of Relationship Magic for Couples, 2013, based on proven processes used in both therapeutic and corporate environments. Relationship Magic for Couples is a “do it yourself” relationship enhancement and conflict resolution toolkit for couples. The skills and processes also apply in any ongoing relationship, romantic or not.

Sometimes couples don’t get the help that they need to create the relationship they desire because of concerns about money, time or privacy. As a Relationship Coach, I create self-help tools that couples can use themselves to address their issues or transform an already good relationship into a great one (see “Products” tab above). I support this with group coaching calls to answer questions and expand solutions.

Even in situations where your partner is resisting making changes in the relationship (and this is not at all uncommon), you can begin work on it yourself using these tools. The resulting changes in you will effect and get the attention of your partner.

To find out more about Relationship Magic for Couples, just click on “Products” in the menu above.

I am also the creator of the Teams Evolving and Mastering Success assessment and improvement process for small business and teams. I’m the author of inspirational books, as well as numerous articles on leadership and other topics in both national and international publications.

Why Did I Become A Helping Professional?

As the oldest of 8 children I grew up in the role of helper and confidant and I got very early, hands on, real world experience in helping others in handling their relationships as well as managing conflict.  I discovered I liked it.

When I was 14 years old I thought I wanted to become an anesthesiologist, but as time went on I realized that I wanted to help people with their emotional pain rather than physical pain.  That led to the decision to become a therapist and coach.  As the years have gone on, I’ve never regretted that choice.

Seeing the light break through as the clouds clear in a relationship, at home or at work, whether it’s one person, a couple, a family with children or a work partner or team is always a real joy.

The 17th century English poet John Donne is famous for the opening quote of the poem of the same name “No man is an island.”  Truer words were never spoken.  There may days for most of us when we at least fleetingly wish we could be an island unto ourselves, or at least live on one for a little bit, but in the end connection with our fellow human beings is what makes life worth living.
