We consider ourselves fellow travelers with you on the up and down journey of relationships. We walk the walk; we’ve both been married, divorced, and remarried to other people, cultivating happiness after some rough times. We know what it’s like to feel the exaltation of first love, the heartbreaks and defeat that accompany divorce and the energy it takes to start again. We know what it is like to have children watching you the whole time.

We’ve learned what relational skills we needed to develop, and we practice them — mostly successfully — with our beloveds every day, week, month and year.

We want to share them with you.
