Growing into Couplehood

In this episode, I interview Rob Maurer and Conry Davidson about their 6-year marriage and 8-year relationship. They are quite candid about the challenges they've overcome on their way to a happy marriage. This is the second marriage for them both and their first ones weren't nearly as satisfying. What makes the difference? They talk about several things: taking time off after their last relationship for serious self-reflection and growth, communication, foundations they share, humor, great sex amd having an objective guide to help them negotiate the journey. I was privileged to work with both Rob and Conry as their relationship coach. If you are looking for someone to talk with about your relationship, I'm happy to serve as your objective guide and coach. I do a complimentary session to assess if we will be able to do good work together, while you are also assessing your fit with me. If you'd like to schedule a complimentary session, you can do so here. This is a podcast of hope that you, too, can build a relationship that works for you.
