Have you ever wanted to make a significant investment or a big move in your life- and you come to find out that your partner isn’t on board? Have you ever wondered what the best way was to navigate this intimate situation?

Today, I invite you and your partner to cozy up, grab a pen and some paper- and dive in to this life-changing conversation together.

Psychotherapist and Therapeutic Relationship Coach, Rachel Wright, is recognized as one of the freshest voices on modern and millennial relationships. She is the co-founder of Wright Wellness Center where, together with her husband and team, she is on a mission to help people have better sex, relationships, and mental health, through a growing catalog of masterclasses, online programs, resources, and a supportive online community.

Kyle Wright’s calling is to change the way we view masculinity and how we talk and teach about mental health, relationships, and sex. He coaches men 1:1 to help them navigate their Modern Masculinity™, works with couples enrolled in Revive Your Relationship™, and teaches monthly masterclasses on topics related to mental health, relationships, and sex education.

Kyle & Rachel break some assumptions about their relationship like never fighting, how much intimacy is healthy, and how to communicate openly with your partner.

Vulnerability + transparency are a gift they love giving, and I can’t wait for them to share it with you.
