Why Relationship Coaching?
Evidence-based, action-oriented relationship coaching is the most direct way of creating positive changes in your relationship.
Why? Relationship Coaching is different from traditional forms of marriage counseling and couples therapy in that it’s action-oriented and results-based. The goal of relationship coaching is to help you improve practical aspects of your day-to-day life together, and change your way of relating to each other for the better.
Relationship Coaching for:
Communication issues are the downfall of many couples. Working on your communication skills is the most important thing you can do to strengthen your relationship.
A great relationship coach teaches you to enhance your listening skills, and improve communication, so you can protect your relationship in times of stress. Through this work, you’ll both feel validated, and better able to solve issues productively.
Relationship Coaching For:
Love and Respect
You both deserve to feel loved and respected.
Your relationship coach will help you both identify your love languages and relationship needs and learn how to show love and respect in the ways that are most meaningful to each other.
Practicing this kind of generous love every day helps you grow into supportive and unconditionally loving friends, lovers, and partners.
Relationship Coaching For:
Emotional & Sexual Intimacy
An expert relationship coach will help you both dive deep to understand each other on a core, vulnerable level. You’ll learn to build emotional intimacy through evidence-based strategies focused on strong attachment and positive action.
Your strong foundation of authenticity, understanding, and generosity helps you improve your sexual intimacy, as well as your emotional connection.
Relationship Coaching For:
A Bright, Shared Future
Every long-term couple has challenges. What matters is how you use them to continue growing together.
Your relationship coach will help you hear and understand each other in a new way, explore your expectations, and set long-term goals that honor your most important hopes, dreams, and values.
This is the work that paves the way to a bright, shared future.
Why Growing Self? Our Relationship Coaches are Different.
Here’s a dirty secret about relationship coaching: There is zero education or training required to call yourself a relationship coach. Even worse, while you do need a degree and licensure to be a therapist, most therapists providing couples counseling have little to no specialized training in couples and family therapy — to the detriment of many unsuspecting couples.
In contrast, Growing Self is a collective of world-class marriage and family therapists with advanced degrees in couples and family therapy and years of experience in evidence-based approaches to helping couples flourish and thrive. Our relationship experts provide empowering, positive, action-oriented relationship coaching, as well as couples therapy and marriage counseling.

“Kensington was intentional and warm, which is something we appreciate when it comes to letting someone in our personal life. Kensington asked us questions and provided feedback which was great as well.”

He has provided us both with a safe place where we feel encouraged to be vulnerable with one another. We absolutely love working with him, and plan to keep doing so!”

“The most helpful parts were Seth’s ability to very carefully facilitate the very hard conversations that my wife and I could not do on our own”

It truly has been a growing experience for us both, and while we’re still practicing the things you taught us- we both feel heard by the other. We thank you so much for your guidance during such a rough time. I can’t speak for xx, but I feel like I have my best friend back.”

“We worked through the arguments using the skills you have taught us and we are generally doing okay. A lot of the credit for that is thanks to your help. Thank you for all that you have done for us. We are very happy together and it is mostly thanks to the support you have given us.”
“We absolutely loved working with Jenna. We both were emotional when closing out, never thought we could get closer and stronger in our relationship, yet we have grown leaps and bounds.”
“Georgi was wonderful and I really appreciated her process minded approach. She was very good at deconstructing complex situations or emotions in a methodical way that made obstacles seem easier to overcome. She also made sure that myself and my partner felt validated throughout the process. I like that Georgi let us come forward with anything that happened in the week but she also always had a plan to direct the conversation in case we did not have anything to talk about.”
“Hunter taught us many useful techniques to help us communicate better, recognize and resolve conflicts. We also really like the part where he asked us to re-do our conversations. Those practices help us catch ourselves even before conflicts arise.”
“Brittany was a great help, very thoughtful, and offered great insight and advice throughout our time together. I always felt heard/comfortable and she was encouraging of us stepping outside of our comfort zone. I can’t thank Brittany enough for how kind and supportive she is!”
“We’re doing great! Indeed we had some fights, but always with a happy ending and no hard feelings afterwards. Thanks a lot for your help, it was crucial for our development as a couple.”
“I was comfortable with Ben and how he explained everything we could expect the first visit. I think he was fair to both of us and I would be interested in his insight.”
“The most helpful part was Hunter’s understanding nature and ability to condense down what we said. He was very affirming in nature and was also able to offer perspective. I really appreciate that we was the one who led the discussion about having achieved our goals. As for different, I don’t think there is anything at this time.”
“Linda makes us feel safe. She makes it so that we know that we are going to get through this together and come out stronger.”
“Stephanie has helped us greatly with our communication and connection. We have had a very positive experience, and I am grateful for the wonderful help we’ve received.”
“Dori helped us so much. Over multiple discussions, she helped us gain insights into what the other person was truly thinking and feeling, and what we were afraid to admit, too. She also gave us a collection of tools to try when things get tough. The combination of all these things has helped us work through and past much of the tension we couldn’t get over before.”
“Josephine showed us tools for recognizing conflicts / poor communication and pursuing resolution and achieving thoughtful dialogue. She also reinforced what was good about our relationship :)”
“Jessica has a way about her. She is very skilled at listening to us and picking out where we can improve our communication/connection with each other.”
“I just wanted to thank you [Roseann] for the great session today. Your read on things has been remarkably accurate and we’re really happy we found you. I know we’re just beginning, but I’m incredibly encouraged by the real progress we’re already making and we’re very much looking forward to seeing you next week.”
“She [Dr. Georgiana] is taking us through historical issues that need to be addressed before we can move forward. She tells it straight, “If things continue like this you can expect xyz…” She encourages and makes a case for decisions to be made, to take a stand and follow through.”
“Lisa makes me feel very relaxed and comfortable. She gave good insight and overall it was a really positive experience. We are looking forward to continuing our work with her.”
“I like the way that she talks with us and she makes me feel really comfortable after previous therapy experiences going poorly. And I think that she gives us good homework and tools that we can use.”
“Bre is very bubbly but also patient and good at taking care of any concerns or questions throughout the process.”
“He listens well. Hunter helped to teach us how to listen to each other, and how to be vulnerable, honest, and to open up about everything.”
“The best thing that Hunter did was hold us accountable and make sure that we were always clear and understood. If at any time we didn’t feel like we were achieving anything he was there to help guide us to more vulnerable communication.”
“Not only was Renelle a great personality fit for us, her intelligence and experience in the areas we need really came through along with her approach as a teacher as much as a therapist – all the things we are looking for.”
