About Samantha & The GEMMS
Welcome! I'm Samantha Kaaua, the founder of The GEMMS® and a devoted Marriage Makeover Coach. Armed with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a master's degree in Marriage & Family Therapy, I've dedicated my life to restoring trust and faith in relationships, one couple at a time.
My journey began from personal experience. Through navigating my own marital challenges, I discovered an innovative approach to transform the culture of relationships. The Gift of Each Meaningful Moment Shared (The GEMMS) encapsulates my belief that every interaction with those around us holds a potential gift, a moment of transformation that can enrich our lives and deepen our connections.
My vision extends beyond individual relationships to an elevated spiritual awareness for all. I truly believe in the power of love as our guiding compass, honesty as the key to trust, transparency as the path to intimacy, and fun as an expression of our true spiritual essence. At the core, I celebrate family as our chosen circle of love that lifts each other up.
These core values and beliefs have shaped the development of my proprietary methodology - Inner MosaicTM. This unique approach addresses what I've found to be the most significant obstacle in my clients' lives and my own: self-love and self-trust.
The Inner MosaicTM Method is built on the understanding that we all have different parts of ourselves that emerge at various times, reflecting our past experiences and emotions. In embracing every aspect of our Inner MosaicTM, we can cultivate a holistic self-love that goes beyond affirmations, self-care routines, and boundary setting. It's a journey into the heart of ourselves, embracing all our pieces, light and dark alike.
My ambitious goal? To help save 10 million marriages, fostering deeper connections and understanding among couples across the world.
On a personal note, my love for nature and animals has me dreaming of establishing an animal rehabilitation center in the future. My passion stems from my college years where I had the opportunity to rehabilitate wild sea birds, with the Manu O Ku, or fairy tern, becoming my personal favorite.
My own marriage has been my greatest teacher. Married to my high school sweetheart for 11 years, we've ridden the highs and lows, even teetering on the brink of divorce twice. But with each challenge, we've emerged stronger, more connected, and more committed. I share these lessons and tools to help others transform their marriages, believing wholeheartedly that it only takes one person to bring about a relationship metamorphosis.
I invite you to join me on this journey of discovery, growth, and transformation. Let's find the GEMMS in your relationships and the beauty in your Inner MosaicTM.
