EmboldenU: Restoring Connections One Step at a Time


If you don’t ask, the answer’s always no. If you don’t step forward, you are always in the same place.

Jennifer Manlowe, PhD, MDiv, LMFTA

My name is Jennifer Manlowe and I founded EmboldenU to help individuals, couples and families communicate more boldly while maintaining authentic connections.

Whether you are a teenager, a parent, or a life partner, the task of finding out how to live together – without the fear of losing love – can be challenging.

We often need support to create and sustain our commitments. When we feel unsure, we are apt to make poor choices. This may mean we push people away – or the opposite – we cling too tightly. We develop habits that don’t serve anyone.

Either way, we feel stuck. This is the time to find other ways of being ourselves while also being with each other.

If you or you and a loved one are ready to uncover what will serve your relationships, I’ll join you on the journey.

I believe good relationships support great lives. My specialties include using intuitive and counter-intuitive methods to mend relationships. I use effectiveness training for people who are ready to do things differently. This may include story sharing, role-playing, and fun personality assessments to support more fulfilling relationships and lives overall.

If you or someone in your life feel stuck, you may wonder what you can do to create change. You may doubt your power to change life as it is right now. You may have absorbed cultural messages that say, “There’s nothing you can do, things will never change.” I disagree. I say, “When relationships are mended, creative lives are possible; it begins with us.”
