Relationship Coaching for Couples

Conflicted Relationships and Devitalized Couples

You have low levels of satisfaction and often struggle with many areas of your relationship. You are lacking awareness of your strength areas and growth opportunities as a couple to effect meaningful change. You lack the skills and tools necessary to effectively communicate and manage conflict.  You may already be considering whether or not to stay together. Critical growth areas in your relationship must be addressed in order to reduce turmoil and restore harmony.

Couples in Business & Entrepreneur Couples

Entrepreneur couples and couples in business together face unique dynamics in their relationships! When your life partner is also your business partner, how do you balance the two? Couples where each is an entrepreneur with their own enterprise also face similar struggles associated with life balance, financial unpredictability, household and parenting expectations, and even competition.  Integrate your work lives with your relationship and clarify your roles and expectations through coaching.

Couples Coaching is appropriate for partnered, engaged (pre-marital) and married couples.

This program is inclusive and appropriate for couples of all faiths, genders, orientations, and chosen partnership lifestyle. I pride myself on providing my clients with a non-judgmental and culturally competent coaching experience.

WHY CHOOSE RELATIONSHIP COACHING?

image13

Relationship coaching is a great option for couples proactively seeking growth and support to manifest their desired outcomes as well as couples who have considered but are hesitant about counseling; or those who have attempted counseling but did not experience their desired outcomes.

Your relationship and family are too important to "wait and see" if things will change or get better over time.  The only way to experience change or improvement in your life as a couple is to create it.

An Investment in Your Future is Not an Expense

Did you know...?

  • The average couple spends $33k for a wedding.
  • The average person spends $15k per year for college.
  • The average person invests $30k to start a business and...
  • The average divorce costs $30k. And yet, on average people spend $0 on any relationship education. ZERO.

Society naturally expects that it takes "work", or knowing how to "play the game", in order to attract a partner, but the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to attract a High-Value partner and to keep a relationship alive and thriving for the long-term are often ignored or assumed. 


The GREAT news is that the knowledge, skills and tools we need in order to attract and keep a high-value partnership can be taught and learned - and the impact not only lasts a lifetime but it is passed on from generation to generation! 


Just as unhealthy, negative and abusive relationship patterns and behaviors are often learned and passed on to the next generation, so are healthy relationship patterns and behaviors. This is your Relationship Legacy - it gets created over a lifetime and you leave it behind for your children, family and community. Are you creating your legacy with intention and purpose?

Couples Coaching vs. Couples Counseling or MarriAge Therapy

Couples tend to seek counseling only after the relationship is in trouble and by then, there may have already been severe emotional damage or it may even be too late. Many therapists will no longer work with a couple under these circumstances.


According to some researchers, approximately 25% of couples who receive marriage therapy report that their relationship is worse two years after ending therapy, and up to 38% of couples who receive marriage therapy get divorced within four years of completion. Sadly, almost 50% of all marriages in the United States will end in divorce or separation.

Many couples have tried therapy for a term much longer (9-12 mos) than the average foundational relationship coaching program (12 weeks) with little to no results or sustainable improvement over time. Traditional therapy is often focused on negative emotions and events from the past rather than redirecting the couple toward a vision for a new future together and creating an action plan to get there.  


This does not take into account the number of couples who cannot bring themselves to try therapy because of, 1) the expense, 2) the perceived stigma, 3) cultural norms contrary to engagement in therapy - and many other valid personal reasons.


Disclaimer: Therapy with a licensed professional is always the best option in cases where there are unmanaged mental health concerns or diagnoses, relationship violence, or addiction.
