How Dr. Alexandra Started Working with Relationships and Intimacy

Dr. Alexandra got into being a coach because of her relationship with her husband as the years progressed. They didn’t have weekend getaways because of their careers and how early they had children together. She got into this new field mostly for herself and because she found in life coaching what she wanted to do in medicine as well.

The difference between being a family doctor and being a relationships and intimacy coach is that is the responsibility of doctors to take care of all patients regardless of their circumstances meanwhile as a coach, she motivates clients and there is no entitlement among them compared to patients.

You can reach out to Dr. Alexandra through her website.
