About the Coach
Estrella Rogers (Coach Star)
Hi! I'm Estrella Rogers, but you can call me Coach Star.
I have been in practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over ten years. Through my years in working with couples I began to realize that a lot of our issues are simply because we were never taught. For most couples they didn't have a positive example or someone to teach them the right way. I experienced situations in the early stages of my own marriage which made me realize it’s not that couples don’t want to try, but how do you build a healthy marriage if you don’t know how?
So I began my journey working with couples to:
Build: in order to have a healthy successful marriage it is important to build a firm foundation.
Grow: in order to grow your marriage you have to learn to nurture it to ensure longevity.
Love: love requires compromise, sacrifice and passion for making each other better.
I received my graduate degree from East Carolina University. I am currently level three Gottman level trained. I utilize this approach which includes a thorough assessment of your relationship and integrates research based on the Sound Relationship House Theory.
The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.
Along with my level three training, I am also a Prepare and Enrich Certified Facilitator and Certified in Christian Counseling. Each of these allows me to provide services to a diverse group of couples ensuring that I can tailor my services to the needs of my couples.
