Getting Started

Re-energize and reclaim the relationship you know is possible.  The journey you and your partner are considering taking together is powerful and transformational, and we’re very excited to help lead the way.

What to Expect

We start with “designing our alliance.” This is where we get clear on the role we’ll play as your coaches and identify agreements you’ll both make around how you want to be with each other for the upcoming sessions.

Next, we’ll identify specific challenges in your relationship.  We'll get clear on where your relationship is currently and help you begin to create a vision for where you want it to be.  Using this shared vision, we'll nail down some concrete goals to keep the coaching meaningful and focused.

At the end of each session, you'll leave with homework. This can include practicing new ways to communicate, taking steps to enhance connection and intimacy, and exploring new ways to have fun (pillow fight anyone?) and celebrate each other. The homework will always be specifically related to your relationship and involve a commitment to making real what you are learning.

We spend a lot of time helping you realize and connect to your shared values, what drives you individually, and what drives the relationship, what we call the “Third Entity."

We'll also spend time helping you see how your "gremlins" (a.ka. negative self talking monsters) are keeping you disconnected from your relationship.  You'll learn how to kick them to the curb and get your "higher selves" back together driving the relationship bus.

How it Works

Our first session will be a  discovery session to get clear on your values and goals. Following that, you and your partner meet with us twice per month either in-person, over zoom, or over the phone; each session is 60-75 minutes.  And, if we go over or under a bit, we don't sweat it.  We don't put your needs on a strict clock. In between sessions, we include spot coaching via email/phone as necessary.  Stuff happens in between calls, and we are here to support you at those times as well.

That’s it.  There’s no formalized minimum commitment, but we do strongly suggest that a couple commit to a minimum of 6-8 sessions over a period of about 3-4 months. Our clients find this is the sweet spot to begin realizing SUSTAINABLE RESULTS.​
