"Mary Pepper brought a warm, accepting presence to her work with parents in our parenting classes. She honored our parents by recognizing that a child's first teacher is a parent. Encouraging parents and students to try what they learned at home was very effective in promoting change. Reluctant parents shared that they were very eager to try new techniques at home and enjoyed the weekly classes."

"Mary Pepper is a high energy instructor who keeps her classes lively. I noticed how much more thoughtful my husband and I have been in our communication with each other since attending Mary's "relationship skills" program. It really woke us up to things we had been taking for granted or not attending to at all in our marriage. It definitely brought us closer together. It's always worth getting a tune-up on your relationship."

"My boyfriend and I heard about 'Healthy Relationships 101' from a co-worker and he 'raved' about the class!

We wanted to seek advice and reassurance that our relationship could last many years to come! Mary Pepper was amazing!"

"Mary really put things into perspective for both of us. We are still having our date night, at least every two weeks if not weekly...after taking that class and meeting with you on a one to one basis we understood how to separate work from marriage. Thank you so much, we do recommend this class to anyone that has either gotten bored with one another, feels like the excitement has been lost or are empty nesters."
- Brian and Renee

"I really liked your "relationship skills" classes because it taught us to listen to each other and really hear what the other is saying. Also, the date night commitment is helpful to stay out of the day to day rut that tends to make us take each other for granted. The topics covered helped us to discuss things that we wouldn't have thought of on our own in a healthy way."
