In how you see your life together as a couple. 


The Marriage UpGrade is here.


Better communication.

Deeper connection.

Greater unity.

More passion.

Elevated thinking. 


It’s not just another group coaching program – it’s you learning the mindset, skills, and tools to create a marriage that's just as exceptional as the rest of your life.


Welcome. Come inside.




This 6-month program provides you with dynamic teaching, coaching, and challenges to shape the way you think, feel, and show up in your marriage as individuals and as a couple. 


Your mindset is the foundation for everything you do and the process inside of The Marriage UpGrade focuses on inside–out transformation.


We start with your identity – how you see yourself and the relationship you have with YOU.


Next we build to how you see your spouse – what you believe about them, how you understand them and interpret their words and actions in the marriage.


Then, we work to bring you together as a cohesive team – supporting each other in the growth and changes that will be necessary to create your fully upgraded marriage.


The goal is not just to change your experience in the marriage, but to change the marriage itself


Tangible improvements that are obvious to you both.  


That is the power of doing this work together.





Immediately upon enrollment you have access to The Marriage UpGrade Course, which is a 10-session interactive video classroom with Dr. Chavonne. 

Modules cover:

  • how to operate as a team
  • the mindset to achieve any goal you have for your marriage
  • the foundational principles to improve your communication and deepen your connection

Worksheets and discussion guides to help you and your spouse have productive, solution-focused conversations where you BOTH feel seen and heard.

Dr. Chavonne then walks you through the rest of the Marriage UpGrade Process

6 Months of Weekly Virtual Experiences

Each month inside the program cycles through
these specific experiences.

Interactive Workshops

Week 1 of Each Month 
(Thursday Evenings via Zoom)


Each workshop includes a teaching component, guided conversations for you and your spouse to have together, as well as time for Q+A and coaching on the content covered. You will walk away with new insights, information and skills that you can apply right away to improve your communication and connection. 

Example topics include:

  • Navigating conflict
  • Making requests
  • How to have difficult conversations
  • How to actively listen
  • Creating emotional safety
  • Reigniting desire and passion


Personal Challenge

Week 2 of Each Month
(Friday Afternoons via Zoom)

In this program, you will learn to identify the specific actions you need to focus on to make your marriage better by participating in a challenge. You will self-select the specific actions you want to take (or refrain from) for the week and set a concrete goal for yourself. At the end of the challenge week, there will be an open coaching call to celebrate your accomplishments and problem-solve any issues that got in the way.

Example challenges include:

  • No complaining
  • Giving compliments
  • No arguing
  • More sex
  • Prayer
  • Love letter

Open Coaching Calls

Week 3 of Each Month
(Thursday Evenings via Zoom)

These coaching calls will be the place you come to work through any barriers preventing you from making the progress. We will coach on topics like managing emotions, communicating effectively, resentment, triggering moments, how to think and respond to situations, and whatever other issues are presented. 

During these calls, volunteers will raise their hand for coaching, present their topic, and be coached live, directly by Dr. Chavonne. This experience allows for everyone to receive coaching as you either listen and apply what’s being said to your own issues, or receive direct coaching.






Virtual Date Night

Week 4 of Each Month
(Saturday Evenings via Zoom)

The Virtual Date Nights are romantic evenings facilitated live by Dr. Chavonne to help you and your spouse deeply connect, have fun, and increase your emotional intimacy. You can set the scene in your home, or location of your choice to create a wonderful evening together. What happens after that is up to you!  

Self-Care Soirees

Week 4 of Each Month
(Sunday Evenings via Zoom)

Self-Care Soirees are focused on reducing stress and overwhelm, building self-confidence, and mastering practices to create calm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of life. These will be fun and relaxing experiences to help you decompress – come in your favorite comfy robe, blanket or socks and enjoy being pampered with the group.


Every month we will alternate between a Virtual Date Night or Self-Care Soiree.  

Private Community

The Marriage UpGrade includes a private Facebook group for 24-hour support and community accessible only to the couples enrolled in the program.

You can celebrate your wins, post your questions, and receive on the spot help.

The group will be moderated by Dr. Chavonne and a program manager.

Participation in this group is optional.


Program Extras

In addition to the live event, and 6 months of experiences, there are other bonus materials available to you.

Video Library of Resources – instant tools and how-tos at the click of a button

Prayers and Meditations – immediately access calm and grounding words when you are having a hard time

Conversation Guides – step-by-step guidance for what to say and how to say it.



Can’t make all of these experiences live? No problem. You’ll still get the full experience and all that you need. Everything will be recorded and made available to watch in replay within 48 hours.

 This experience will set you up for a better marriage now and 40-50 years into the future. 

It’s an experience that will give you a return on the marriage you’ve already invested in. 

You’ll walk away with so much more than what you came with.


This is the “after” you’ve been looking for.

"Why they signed up..."





The Marriage UpGrade is a perfect fit for you if:


  • You are committed to your marriage and want to experience all God has for you together as a couple

  • You want to find ways to work through your differences productively instead of allowing them to create distance between you

  • You are willing to take responsibility for your role in any issues and focus on improving yourself before trying to change your spouse

  • You are open to learning and applying new behaviors that make your marriage easier and create a better experience for both you and your spouse

The Marriage UpGrade is not a great fit for you if:


  • You are only interested in blaming your spouse and unwilling to make changes within yourself

  • You are unwilling to do things differently for the sake of your marriage

  • You are closed off to constructive feedback and learning new skills

  • You and your spouse are already separated or seriously considering divorce*

  • There is or has been repeated infidelity*

  • There is any form of abuse in the marriage** 

*1:1 Private Coaching with Dr. Chavonne will be a better fit.

**If this is your experience, please seek the help of a licensed therapist.
