After 27 years of supporting couples, we have found that this educational approach greatly accelerates positive change and growth when compared to private therapy. It delivers more lasting change, at only one third of the hourly cost of therapy.
You’ll have the advantage of learning from a real couple. We share what has helped us in our 30-year journey as two stubborn, opinionated, and apparently incompatible people… who love each other regardless. As you witness us working through charged issues you will quickly absorb and retain the capacity to do so yourselves.
