You wouldn’t expect yourself to be able to cook a cordon bleu-level meal, build an app, or successfully play the stock market without training and support.

And yet, that’s absolutely what we do when it comes to relationships. We totally ignore the fact that they’re inherently complicated and that we all come with our built-in advantages and hang-ups, and we treat the whole thing like something we should all, theoretically, be naturally good at.

Being good at relationships is a skill, just like anything else.

Sure, sometimes people luck into great relationships, the same way some people are naturally talented at cooking or coding or investing. And you can learn how to do relationships the hard way, like you can do with any other skill.

But why not learn how to do them the smart way?

I’ve taken the lessons of nearly a decade of work as a relationship therapist and developed the Love Acumen methodology: an evidence-based practice for creating the relationships you want based on the one and only factor you can actually control in a relationship: yourself.

Because the truth is, finding, maintaining, and enjoying a great relationship isn’t something that just happens. It takes a willingness to know yourself, to really dig into your strengths and weaknesses, and to put in the work

It’s certainly not as simple as a fairy-tale prince or princess showing up out of the blue, falling madly in love with you, and everything being picture-perfect from there on out … but it is the recipe for a real-life, healthy happily ever after.

OPTION A:

Love Blocks Assessment

You can’t possibly improve your relationships if you don’t know what you’re working with. We all come with a natural set of strengths and weaknesses when it comes to relationships, and until you understand what yours are, you’re flying blind.

In this 75-minute session, we’ll take a deep dive into your personal relationship DNA so you can understand exactly what’s going on with your love life (or lack thereof), make a plan to get you where you want to be, and tackle any issues you’ve got going on with your relationships right now.

The details:

1 x 75 minute phone or Skype session

Personalized homework and audio recording provided for you.

$175.

OPTION B: Relationship Empowerment Training

Finding and creating a great relationship takes time and effort. But it takes much less time and effort if you put in the work over the course of a few months to get to know yourself and your relationship style, create clear, achievable goals for your love life, and develop a plan that’s tailored specifically for you.

Enter Relationship Empowerment Training.

Using my methodology as a framework, we’ll create goals specific to your relationship wants and needs and then work through any potential issues you might have in making those goals a reality.

If you’re single or doing this by yourself, we’ll focus on things like:

  • How you can get off of the dating merry-go-round or the emotional relationship rollercoaster.
  • How you naturally operate in relationships –– for better or worse –– and how we can amp up the better.
  • How to build healthy emotional intimacy in a relationship.
  • How to get crystal clear on your needs and priorities in a relationship. (Hint: this is the key to actually getting those things.)
  • The exact steps you need to take to find or create your ideal relationship.

If you’d like to develop your Love Acumen as a couple, we’ll focus on things like:

  • What both of your relationship styles are, the areas in which they complement each other, and the areas in which they clash.
  • How to make the most of the complementary areas and manage the difficult ones more effectively.
  • Creating clarity around both of your needs and priorities in a relationship, and how you can both get those met.
  • How to build or rebuild healthy emotional intimacy in your relationship.
  • How to fight productively, rather than destructively so you can learn how to create a win/win approach that does not result in you compromising your personal values.
  • The exact steps you need to take as a couple to create your ideal relationship.
