Charting Toward Intimacy
We are Catholic instructors located in the Diocese of Oakland in California. We teach both in person and live online classes. We teach group classes together and also offer an option to work one-on-one with Ellen only if that is more comfortable for you!
Our goal is to make NFP as accessible as possible for you. That’s why we offer a sliding scale pay option for our classes. If money is a barrier for you to learn and use NFP in your marriage, please contact us and we will work something out with you!
We are Catholics who promote NFP use within a marriage which means using a fertility awareness-based method (like Sympto-thermal) along with prayer and discernment with your spouse to plan your family. We’ll talk with you about discernment, teachings of the Catholic Church, abstinence, and all that right alongside all the science of fertility awareness and the method we teach.
If you are looking for NFP instructors for your marriage prep/pre-cana needs, we can provide you with whatever certification you need for your priest or diocese. We love to teach engaged and married couples or single women. We have different options for classes if you’re charting for health only and not family planning. Please reach out to us, we’d love to chat with you!
