We have been together as a couple for over 24 years, raised two children and currently enjoy being grandparents to our three grandchildren. The story of our meeting was published in a book on magical meetings, Meant To Be, by Barry and Joyce Vissell. We were interviewed for a book about couples that have successfully navigated challenges while maintaining a vibrant relationship, and we were featured in a PhD dissertation on Sacred Sexuality. Prior to our current careers of coach and therapist, we worked together for several years co-leading multi-day wilderness personal growth focused workshops with David's whitewater rafting company.
We have worked through many personal and relational challenges in the 24 years of being together and bring our experience of successfully navigating these challenges to our clients and participants. We believe in the power of relationship as one of the most potent sources of personal growth. Keeping our own relationship as a priority through these life challenges, seeking out help when needed, being each others number one fans, and committing to seeing the best in each other are part of what has helped us create a relationship full of deep love, respect, and passion. We lean into this experience and history to help our clients and participants navigate their relationship challenges and successes. We know and deeply believe in the possibility of successful fulfilling relationships.
