  • You're newly engaged or married and wondering if you've chosen the right mate.
  • You've just had your first baby and you're both exhausted and bickering at each other. It's not as idealistic as you had dreamed of. The busyness of this season with littles is feeling overwhelming!
  • You're an empty nester with kids off at college and you no longer recognize or feel connected to your spouse.


Do any of these sound like you?

Communication stalls or (worse) dips.

You're having the same arguments over and over.

You stumble reconciling instead of following a repair framework.

And that leads to sleepless nights and feeling constantly overwhelmed.


We don’t want that for you.

Hi, we're Russ & Danielle West. We are marriage mentors. We help couples repair marital strife to get more out of life.

More about us

Dr. Montana Halliday

I was skeptical to sign up for Intentional Marriages (Communicate Clearly Course) after believing that my husband and I had tried everything. We had done joint and individual counseling, emdr, 12-step programs, and read multiple books. We had been together 13 years and prided ourselves on our communication skills that had been falling apart. We felt powerless and that we had no hope for our marriage. It wasn't until God directed us to Intentional Marriages that we were reluctantly obedient. We are so glad that we did. Danielle and Russ have helped bring hope, love, and fun back into our marriage. The practical skills we are learning are life-changing. We also feel like they genuinely care about us. I highly recommend Intentional Marriages (Communicate Clearly Course) for anyone who wants to create a healthy marriage.

This is more therapy than we've had in an hour. You all are very good. You have a calling for sure. 100%. You guys get it. We didn't realize we would get so much out of one Break Free Session. I recognized a change in how we approach difficult conversations (based on techniques we learned in the Course). there's a lot of patience and more grace. We are slow to react.

There's more seeking to understand. That alone has made the Break Free Sessions and Communicate Clearly Course) worth the investment.

My husband and I were disconnected when it came to how to parent our children. We were both hurt that we weren't on the same page. Our sessions with Danielle and Russ were eye-opening on many levels: but mainly for me, that two things can be true (each of us has our own truth about an event). I noticed my inability to see this beforehand. Ouch! Our sessions taught us to get to the "why" of our individual triggers which stem from deeper, more painful wounds or expectations, and how to communicate through that effectively together. I believe understanding more about my husband's wounds made me more empathetic and understanding as to why he does the things he does and thinks the way he thinks. No doubt, the sessions are hard. For days after it was emotional…but the truth is…aren't all things really worth doing exceptionally hard? Marriage is work and I'm grateful that Danielle and Russ helped us work on ours.
