As we embark on another episode of the AwakenYou in Your Marriage podcast, I’m thrilled to dive into a topic that’s both nuanced and pivotal: Intimacy Regulators.

In Episode 166, titled “Navigating Intimacy: Understanding Distance and Intimacy Regulators,” we’ll explore the intricate dynamics at play when it comes to fostering closeness in relationships. Drawing from real-life scenarios and insights gleaned from my coaching practice, we’ll uncover how intimacy anxiety and the fear of closeness can manifest in unexpected ways, often leading to the creation of distance between partners.

But fear not, for along with identifying these regulators, we’ll also equip ourselves with strategies to navigate them effectively. From fostering awareness and understanding our emotional cues to gracefully opening up and communicating with our partners, we’ll embark on a journey towards deeper connection and intimacy in our marriages.

Additionally, I have an exciting project in the works that I’d love your input on. I’m creating free offerings tailored specifically for women who find themselves longing for a more fulfilling marriage but aren’t sure how to bridge the gap. If you’re interested in sharing your insights and experiences to help shape these resources, please reach out to me by replying to this message. Your voice is invaluable in guiding the direction of this endeavor.

As always, I encourage you to engage with the content and reflect on how it resonates with your own experiences. Whether you find yourself identifying with the examples shared or gaining new insights into your relationship dynamics, I’m eager to hear your thoughts and observations.

Thank you for being a part of this supportive and growth-oriented community. Together, let’s continue to cultivate awareness, compassion, and connection in our marriages.

Until next time, stay present, stay aware, and above all, stay compassionate towards yourself and your partner.


I am a marriage coach helping women and couples turn their loveless & disconnected marriage into something better than they ever imagined possible. My process starts by helping you figure out what it is you want in your marriage because face it, it’s been a while since you’ve dreamed of what your future could look like. Once you’ve started to open up to what is possible together we create a path towards the marriage you crave.

If you feel sad and powerless about your marriage’s state of affairs, I’d love to chat with you about how you’re feeling and what moving towards something different could look like. Book your Courageous Love Conversation Inquiry Call today, and let’s talk about how to get started.
