We have good news for you. We help people with busy and demanding lives repair their love lives, even when they are on the brink of giving up.
Relationships thrive with the right kind of attention. Great relationships are like well tended gardens. When they are given the right nutrients, they nourish your body and soul.
Unfortunately, few of us were taught the skills for growing and sustaining a healthy passionate relationship. Combine a lack of know how with unresolved issues, and being intimate can feel too hard and become something you avoid.
Not surprisingly, we hear two entirely different stories from women and men about why they avoid intimacy.
Women tell us that the demands of work, the busyness of family life, and a lack of intimate connection with their partner dampens their desire for intimacy. What helps them to reconnect is their partner’s attention and emotional presence. Men tell us they want to feel needed and desired, and that they avoid intimacy when they feel criticized and unappreciated.
Our Relationship Intensives and Coaching Programs are designed to guide you through the steps to repairing the issues and obstacles that come between you and having the relationship you want.
These three principles for lasting transformation are built into all of our programs:
Deep and lasting change is built on a foundation of understanding your own and your partner’s emotional patterns and the differences that divide you as well as the issues and conflicts you face.
Change requires action. We equip you with the skills and tools to quickly identify and repair negative relationship patterns and behaviors. Then we show you how to maintain a secure bond and a vibrant intimate connection.
3. Guidance and Support
A trusted guide who knows the terrain is invaluable when you are healing and transforming your relationship.
As your coaches and mentors we are committed to supporting you through the steps to achieving the relationship you want.
We were friends for 20 years before we became a couple. And we were each in our own way seeking a great love, a soul mate. Each of us had successful careers counseling and coaching people to heal and transform their relationships and their sexuality.
In spite of being successful at helping others, we had some baggage of our own. Three years into our relationship we considered separating. We had some unconscious patterns undermining the secure bond we wanted. Instead of separating, we practiced what we teach and made repairing our relationship a priority. Today, we are happily married and excited to be sharing our passion for creating great relationships with you.

We recognize Mature Sex as a new frontier.
If you are married or in a long term relationship you know that lust doesn’t last and desire isn’t a constant. Many people today are entering into maturity with sexual expectations that are obsolete. Sex in maturity is a whole new frontier. We aren’t just dealing with the lapses in desire that come with living together in close proximity. As we age we are less hormonally driven to want sex. Desire has to come from wanting to be physically close and emotionally connected. Rediscovering your own sexuality and an intimate sexual and emotional connection in maturity is one of life’s greatest riches. Having experienced this ourselves, we know the terrain and will guide you in your journey.
