Transform your relationship from the comfort of home.
AS SEEN IN
Learn the essential roadmap for creating the
thriving relationship you've always wanted.
During this 90-day program, you will learn how to effectively and compassionately communicate, transform gridlocked issues, quickly repair after conflict, heal from the past, turn your relationship into a haven of safety and trust, find powerful ways for your differences to work for you, stay deeply connected (even when life gets really busy), reignite the spark, keep passion alive, and give and receive the kind of love you both have been longing to experience.
are exhausted from miscommunicating,
have differences that are coming between you,
feel stuck in conflict and negative patterns,
have important needs that aren’t being met,
feel disconnected from your best friend,
have experienced challenges you haven’t recovered from,
wonder if you’d be happier with someone else,
or simply long for something MORE in the love department of your life…
It's time to stop settling for a mediocre or "good enough" relationship.
being able to compassionately communicate (about even the most delicate issues),
feeling deeply heard and appreciated,
finally figuring out those long-standing issues with win-win solutions,
feeling a sense of peace and healing around things from the past,
having a solid foundation of safety, trust, and connection,
understanding yourself and your beloved in ways you never have,
reigniting passion and feeling “in love” again,
getting to be one of those inspiring couples you admire — who acts like best friends, does the thoughtful things, and looks at each other across the room with that knowing wink.
The reality is: If you keep trying to figure it out on your own, you will end up right back where you started - or worse.
Here’s the cycle.
You have an argument. Things improve a bit — so it feels less “urgent” to create a big shift. Then, a little time passes and – BAM- you are right back in that same exhausting, painful, and frustrating issue…AGAIN.
THESE GRIDLOCKED ISSUES AND POWER STRUGGLES CAN GO ON FOR YEARS.
Meanwhile, the bond between you wears away a little more each time. Resentment builds. You start to settle. You wonder if this is as good as it gets. You “put up with things,” until you can’t anymore and lash out. You sleep in the same bed but feel miles apart. You fantasize about how much easier it could be with someone else. You stay together out of comfort, the fear of leaving, or obligation — not because you bliss out when the two of you are together.
YOU KEEP HOPING THINGS WILL CHANGE, BUT THE CHANGES DON'T HAPPEN, AND THEY CERTAINLY DON'T LAST.
You have unmet needs (to be more appreciated, to spend more time together, to experience greater intimacy, to feel like your partner is equally contributing, etc.).
You’ve tried telling your partner what you need, but that surely hasn’t worked — because you have no idea how to communicate your needs in a way they can actually hear and receive.
You’ve had good intentions but have lacked relationship skills.
WE KNOW YOU WANT MORE THAN THIS. YOU'VE JUST FELT LOST ABOUT HOW TO CREATE IT.
SO MUCH MORE is possible for you. Most couples have simply never learned how to thrive in love.
This is our expertise and greatest passion and joy. You aren’t alone in this anymore!
There are simple, easy, and powerful formulas to eliminate conflict, allow your beloved to finally hear you, transform challenges, help you get your needs met, and connect your hearts deeply — without all the unnecessary struggle.
Hi, We're Christine & Bret Eartheart
FOUNDERS OF THE CENTER FOR THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS.
As counselors, coaches, and teachers, we help couples around the world transform their relationships and co-create thriving love that lasts.
Having been together 17 years ourselves, we understand the journey firsthand.
When we first got together, it was amazing.
We gave each other our kindest, most patient, fun-loving, and thoughtful selves. We hid notes for each other to find throughout the day. We stayed up until 2 a.m. enamored with knowing everything each other thinks and feels. We sprinkled our bed with flower petals. We snuggled for hours. We made time for dates and getaways, no matter how busy life got.
We overlooked the more challenging qualities and focused on each other’s best and sparkliest qualities.
FAST FORWARD A FEW YEARS. WE OWN A HOUSE TOGETHER. WE ARE CO-PARENTING OUR YOUNG SON. OUR LIVES ARE FULLER THAN EVER.
Despite us previously thinking we are the kind of people who would never get into an argument about things like the dishes and household chores, it was happening.
Christine would nag and wish she didn’t have to play that role. Bret would feel controlled and check out. Christine would then feel even more frustrated. And Bret would then check out even more.
We would try to talk about these cycles, but we both felt unheard. In fact, talking about it only made things worse.
Oh the fun cycles of a power struggle!
We had different views on parenting.
We idealized other potential partners — who looked especially appealing in moments like the above.
We had many moments when things were wonderful, and people saw us as a happy couple — but we would get really STUCK in certain areas.
One day, sitting on the couch, we looked at each other and realized: we love each other, but this is no longer bringing out our best. We had three options…
1. WISH EACH OTHER THE BEST ON OUR SEPARATE JOURNEYS 2. JUST KEEP HOPING THINGS WILL GET BETTER BUT NOT ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT TO CHANGE IT, OR 3. DIVE IN AND LEARN EVERYTHING WE POSSIBLY COULD ABOUT HOW TO HAVE A THRIVING RELATIONSHIP.
That was a profoundly significant night for us, and we still cringe at what we would have unknowingly lost and missed out on if we took the first or second path.
We ordered countless books and audio programs and started attending couples retreats around the country.
And guess what?
Our relationship completely and utterly TRANSFORMED.
We communicated in radically different ways, we both started getting our needs met, and we found amazing ways for our differences to work for us.
We were best friends and allies again.
We laughed and played together. We heard and appreciated each other. The spark was brighter than ever.
Friends were constantly telling us:
“You are our role models and inspiration.”
“You are the only couple I know who actually has an amazing relationship.”
“I wish we had what you guys do.”
Many years later and it just keeps getting better.
This is truly the relationship of our dreams and has been for many years. And to think we almost ended it that evening, years ago.
From our own personal journey and from thousands of sessions we’ve now facilitated for other couples, we’ve discovered this: most relationships need a SHAKE UP, not a break up.
We’ve now spent over a decade passionately studying relationships. We’ve pulled from the best resources out there and created the most powerful and effective tools we know about on the planet.
We want every couple to have this guidance and roadmap.
We’ve helped thousands of couples around the world create thriving love that keeps getting better. It is the greatest honor and joy to watch couples who felt really disconnected and discouraged to fall in love all over again.
AND THEIR BIGGEST AND ONLY REGRET? THAT THEY WAITED SO LONG.
“You have helped save my marriage and possibly even my life. True story!”
~ Derik Gratz
“Such a blessing. Thank you. It has been years since I have felt this connected to my husband.”
We know your life is incredibly busy and we know your time is invaluable.
That’s why we specifically created this Thrive in Love online program that you can access from anywhere in the world. We don’t want anything to stand in the way of you getting to experience the kind of relationship you’ve always wanted.
CREATE LASTING CHANGE.
The patterns you currently have are ones you’ve been practicing a long time. We know it takes time and consistency to make lasting changes. That’s why our unique program lasts 90 days — long enough to integrate all of the amazing changes and breakthroughs you’ll be experiencing!
IT'S ACCESSIBLE + PRIVATE ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.
You can access the program anytime — while you are getting ready in the morning, while sipping your tea on the back porch, on your drive to work, or while laying in bed together at the end of the night. You don’t have to think about rushing to an appointment, finding childcare, or someone else seeing your car in the parking lot at your counselor’s office. The convenience and confidentiality are unparalleled. Get private support from the comfort of your home. It couldn’t be easier, and nobody else will know but you.
Unlike other programs or books out there that only cover one aspect of relationships– like communication, recovering from conflict, attachment styles, or building trust, we are giving you the comprehensive roadmap to create a thriving partnership, on every level.
Accountability and Personal Support
When you sign up for the Thrive in Love online course, you have two options:
Go through the program on your own, at your own pace.
This gives you complete flexibility and privacy, while still having our guidance every step of the way.
You will learn life-changing relationship tips and transformative techniques and will receive weekly homework exercises to instantly put things into practice and get immediate results.
ULTIMATE THRIVE IN LOVE
(WITH YOUR PERSONAL COACH)
This option (highly recommended!) includes the above and matches you with one of our extraordinary Thriving Relationship Coaches for monthly sessions along the way. These sessions are done via video, phone, or in person and are spread throughout the 90 days to help you stay on track, hold you accountable to making positive changes, help you get unstuck around those heated issues, and skyrocket your growth.
This option sets you up for optimal success, and you are supported every step of the way. All you need to do is make time and show up, and we’ll guide you through an amazing process to deepen your love like never before!
12 INTERACTIVE MODULES
These include a combination of video lessons and downloadable guides. Here we walk you through the most transformative processes, insights, and tools to communicate, connect, heal from the past, understand each other in amazing new ways, and move forward and upward into the best years ahead.
You will also put into practice weekly homework assignments that create revolutionary shifts in how you relate to each other and connect. After only week 1, you will feel relieved and hopeful, as tension dissolves and connection deepens!
3 PERSONALIZED COACHING SESSIONS
(INCLUDED WITH ULTIMATE PROGRAM ONLY)
You will be matched with one of our extraordinary Thriving Relationship Coaches for powerful monthly sessions over video, phone, or in person. These can be spread throughout the 90 days in whatever way will best help you stay on track, hold you accountable to making positive changes, help you get unstuck around those heated issues, and skyrocket your growth. Each session is one hour in length. If preferred, you can instead have 6 thirty-minute sessions to have a bi-weekly check-in throughout all 12 weeks. You can also add on additional sessions at any time.
We were able to work through some barriers, some issues and identify how to best move forward together. You were both so relevant and amazingly helpful.”
~ Royce Wagner
INTRODUCTION: THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS - A NEW MODEL OF PARTNERSHIP
Most couples on the planet aren’t thriving — because they have no baseline, models, examples, or framework for what thriving love looks like and how they can create it. In this intro, we’ll invite you to enter into a whole new world of what’s possible in relationships and get you all set up for success to make the most of this course. After the intro, couples already feel their love begin to shift!
WHAT HASN'T BEEN WORKING AND WHY
When it comes to transformation, one of the most powerful things you can do is get really clear on what, despite your best intentions, hasn’t been working.
In this module, you will identify your top Relationship Poisons, create your very own Power Struggle Map (to illuminate the patterns that are keeping you stuck), and then plan out your new Thriving Love Map to bring you back into harmony and connection, again and again.
You will also learn THE most powerful shift you can make to start getting different results in your relationship.
HOW TO STOP NEGLECTING YOUR LOVE AND START NURTURING IT INSTEAD
Every relationship has a Love Account. When it’s full, couples are resilient, see each other’s best intentions, laugh readily, feel connected, and enjoy a delightful spark between them. Unfortunately, however, most couples around the world are withdrawing from their Love Account way more than making deposits. In this module, you will learn what a Love Account is, the signs to look for when it’s starting to run low, and the quickest and most effective ways to fill it back up — no matter how busy life gets. We want you to become a master at loving your sweetheart in the way they uniquely desire, and this module will get you started!
CONSCIOUS COMMUNICATION ESSENTIALS
Did you know that most relationship challenges are completely transformed once couples simply learn how to talk about it differently? In this module, you will feel like you’ve just been stocked with relationship superpowers. There is no greater skill than knowing how to talk so your beloved can actually hear you and listen in a way that dramatically changes how they speak to you.
THE RELATIONSHIP BREAKTHROUGH PROCESS - HOW TO TRANSFORM ANY CONFLICT
Ever felt frustrated by something your beloved did or didn’t do — and then felt even worse and more discouraged after bringing it up to them? Well, consider that a thing of the past! In this module, we walk you through one of our signature relationship tools: the Relationship Breakthrough Process. We’ve designed a step-by-step process that will easily guide you from any challenge into a powerful new solution that honors you both – helping you uncover the layers underneath the issue and hear each other in radically new ways. This is a tool for life and will create profound shifts and positive changes.
CREATING A STRENGTHS-BASED RELATIONSHIP THAT BRINGS OUT YOUR BEST
When we first fall in love, it’s easy to focus on each other’s best. However, over time, we start to over-emphasize each other’s weaknesses and bring out the worst. In this module, you will create a strengths-based relationship that allows your differences to be an asset and source of harmony, rather than conflict. (What we teach you in this module is the #1 most powerful thing we did to transform our own relationship!)
RELATIONSHIP REPAIR AND HEALING THE PAST
Experiencing conflict in your relationship is inevitable — those days you didn’t get enough sleep, the moments you were hungry and on edge, the stressful chapters, the mistakes you made, the issues that trigger your defenses, and so on. The goal is not to completely avoid conflict — but it’s essential that you know to repair — quickly, easily, and effectively. In this module, we will teach you how to give a Super Powered Apology, the best ways to tend to past hurts and old wounds (from both within and outside the relationship), and the tried-and-true Relationship Repair Kit.
THE SECRET TO STAYING CONNECTED IN BUSY TIMES
Most couples we know are busier than ever, and it’s hard enough to find time to sleep, let alone create a phenomenal relationship. Fortunately, it’s not just about the long romantic weekends (though those are lovely!). Instead, thriving love is made up of all the little everyday moments that communicate — “I see you, I love you, you matter more to me than anything else.” In this module, you will discover your Relationship Leaks and how to close them, the Power of Presencing, and the little things you can do to make each other’s life more wonderful, day after day.
TURNING YOUR LOVE INTO A SAFE HAVEN
Your life is probably filled with enough stressors outside your relationship that the last thing you need is for your relationship be a source of additional stress. That’s why, in this module, you will get to turn your relationship into a haven and become each other’s greatest allies, teammates, confidantes, cheerleaders, advocates, and soft landing place in life. It’s the best feeling to walk through life with our #1 fan by our side.
THRIVING INDIVIDUALLY TO THRIVE TOGETHER
The health of your relationship is only as healthy as each of you are as individuals. In other words, personal growth and well-being is vital to thriving together. Therefore, in this module, we guide you through powerful practices for things like self-care, self-love, how to deal with jealousy, cultivating a positive mindset, managing anxiety, pursuing your passions, and so forth.
A happier, healthier, and more peaceful YOU will directly lead to a happier, healthier, and more peaceful relationship!
CULTIVATING EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL INTIMACY
Intimacy is what sets your relationship apart from all the other relationships in your life — both emotionally and physically. However, intimacy can be uncomfortable, confusing, or scary for a lot of people. That’s why, in this module, you will uncover your underlying fears and barriers to intimacy and begin to transform them. You will also practice new amazing ways to share your internal worlds (emotional intimacy) and will get to create your Erotic Maps so you know what uniquely lights each other up, in and out of the bedroom.
TURNING UP THE JOY AND AMPLIFYING THE GOOD
In long-term love, it’s easy to spend way too much time focusing on logistics, errands, and to-do lists and way too little time on cultivating connection and joy. At the end of your life, if you don’t change things, this will be one your biggest regrets. If you and your beloved are simply coexisting more like colleagues, roommates, or co-parents — rather than building a joyful and meaningful life together — this module is made for you! We can already hear you saying “but we don’t have time for that!” We’ve got you covered — promise. We’ve enthusiastically been studying the field of Positive Psychology and the neuroscience of happiness for over a decade, and we’re going to teach you simple ways to start getting wired for happiness in simple and everyday ways!
THRIVING LOVE TO LAST A LIFETIME
By module 12, we know you are going to be amazed by all of the positive changes you’ve made — and we want to make sure it lasts! In this final module, you will co-create an inspiring relationship vision to guide you onward, fuel your momentum, and ensure you know the clear and easy way back into thriving if you ever get off track. There will be lots to celebrate this week!
WITH YOUR PERSONAL COACH + HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
“Bret and Christine helped save and transform our marriage…
Fantastic. Exceeded all expectations. Bret and Christine both have a special gift. They have provided insight and tools that will add so much to our relationship. Thank you!”
~ Nick Miller
“AMAZING & relationship changing! Bret and Christine helped save and transform our marriage! This was supposed to be a place for us to reconnect, instead it was a place we discovered our true potential for a thriving relationship! Thank you so much.”
~ Kate Miller
"You guys changed my marriage for the better! ...We were a step away from divorce.
Neither of us were happy about that, but it seemed likely. We have decided to get remarried (even though we never actually got divorced) so we can put the past behind us. We are putting new habits together on a daily basis so we never go back to where we were. I can’t thank you enough, and to all of those of you trying to decide if it’s worth it: if you’re both ready to listen to these two wise minds then HELL YES it will work.”
~ Lisa Levin
Still not sure? What’s coming up for you?
We know it can feel like a big deal when you choose to invest in your relationship. You want to know the benefits will be worth it.
First of all, consider this: what is the cost of not doing this program? Your relationship stress is costing you greatly and spilling over into every other area of your life (probably much more than you even realize). Chances are, the cost of this program is significantly less than the cost of not doing it.
Secondly, how often do you spend money on items and experiences that offer only fleeting happiness? Couples tell us they spend a lot of money on vacationing together, but it never solves their problems. When your relationship is thriving, honestly, every day feels like a vacation you get to share with your very best friend.
Lastly, we’ve intentionally made this affordable for you. It is significantly less than most marriage therapy you’ll find, and, unlike only doing couple counseling, you’ll receive an entire program you will have access to for a lifetime.
We feel passionately that investing in YOU and your relationship is the greatest investment you can make. Research has shown that the quality of our lives and happiness is most determined by the quality of our most intimate relationship. Therefore, if there is one area to invest your time and energy, this is it!
We also say this from experience. We’ve spent tens of thousands on workshops and classes to feed and enrich our relationship. We know the monetary cost is nothing compared to the exponential value we receive every single day. We are absolutely convinced that we’d never be where we are today (in the joyful relationship of our dreams!) if we hadn’t invested the time, money, and energy.
We humans can get so used to conflict and disconnection that we stop realizing just how painful, exhausting, and stressful it really is. If you tell yourself it’s not that bad or think your problems will go away on their own, the truth is — you are probably in denial. If you aren’t in the relationship of your dreams right now, you are giving up one of the greatest joys of being alive.
If you knew things could be WAY BETTER, why would you settle for “not that bad?” Your issues may get buried or take on different forms, but they won’t go away, and you will lose years of your life that you could be enjoying the relationship you’ve always wanted.
You are on this page for a reason; something in you guided you here. May you listen deeply to and trust your beautiful heart that’s calling you to reach out and get support and tend to the most important part of your life.
Once you begin tapping into what’s possible, you’ll wonder why you waited so long. I mean — who has ever regretted nurturing their relationship and making it fabulous?!
Maybe you’re thinking your relationship just isn’t meant to be, that the problems are too deep, that you can never thrive, that complete trust will never be rebuilt, that you’re better off accepting things the way they are, that your partner will never change, that you’re stuck in a relationship that will never live up to your dreams.
If you do nothing, this will likely be the case. However, chances are, none of these things are true, and neither staying stuck nor leaving are likely the solution. With guidance and loving support, we will help you heal and transform the pain you’ve both experienced, ensure both of you feel heard, seen, and valued, and create a new compelling vision that includes both of your values, needs, and dreams. We’ll provide you with the exact tools and support you need to make it all come true.
We know you are busy, and we imagine life can feel stressful and overwhelming. However, we invite you to consider how much time you could save if you got along beautifully and functioned as a supportive, nurturing, and encouraging team.
When your relationship is thriving, we guarantee you will free up an abundance of time and energy! Plus, when you’re happy, everything in life seems to flow so much more easily.
And lastly, let’s be honest — are there some ways you aren’t using the time you do have most efficiently, especially when you are stressing about your relationship?
It’s really not so much about how much time we have. Living a balanced and fulfilled life is about aligning how we spend our time with the things that matter the very most to us.
This is one of the most common concerns when it comes to getting support as a couple, and we fully understand. Who would want to get help if they are going to feel ganged up on, invalidated, unheard, or misunderstood?
We go above and beyond to create an incredibly safe and compassionate space, completely free from judgment, blaming, and shaming. We are all on the same team with the same mission: to help you experience breakthroughs and take your love to the next level.
This program is about compassionately understanding yourselves and each other in new ways, helping you both feel deeply heard and honored, finding creative solutions that allow you both to get your needs met, and growing deeper in love together.
Absolutely! If you visit this link and feel especially drawn to one of our coaches, simply let us know.
We want to be sure you have the best experience possible and are matched with who will serve you the most.
If you are open to working with any of our coaches, rest assured that we will get you connected with the coach we are confident will be the very best match for your relationship goals.
If, at any time, you would like to switch coaches and try working with someone else, you are also welcome to do so. We’re here for you fully!
Yes! 3 sessions will help ensure you actually complete this course and stay on track with positive momentum and growth.
However, if you find that having a coach accelerates and enhances your growth so much that you want even more, you can always add on additional sessions for $125/hour or $225 for two hours.
Scheduling with coaches is very easy with our simple online scheduler.
You are in luck! We have specifically trained the most amazing coaches who are available at diverse hours, starting at 9 a.m. EST and going until 9:30 p.m. EST, nearly 7 days a week and including weekends.
We are very hopeful we will be able to match you with a coach when you have availability.
We're so excited for you to experience phenomenal breakthroughs and discover new win-win solutions
Before you know it, you will be replacing stress, frustration, and conflict with more ease, joy, and connection.
Imagine no more silent treatments, stonewalling, power struggles, nitpicking, criticism, and defensiveness.
Instead, it’s going to be AMAZING to feel supported, heard, validated, and understood — like a TEAM of two best friends, hand-in-hand, on an incredible journey together.
Get ready for more laughter and appreciation and a loving partnership that brings out your best, meets your needs, fulfills your soul, and allows you to flourish, individually and together.
It really is possible. And you don’t need to figure it out on your own. We’ve got you covered and are here for you in every possible way to make the process as easy, enjoyable, and efficient as possible!
90 Days from now, you too can be Thriving in Love.
WITH YOUR PERSONAL COACH + HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
We designed this for couples in every stage — those who are newly together and want to set themselves up for optimal success, those on the edge of divorce or separation who want to give it one last shot, those who are doing well but get stuck around certain issues and know things could be so much better, or couples who simply recognize the vital importance of always growing their love in order to thrive!
It will take a minimum of one hour a week to complete the essentials of the self-guided version.
For those who register for the version that includes coaching, it will take about 2 hours a week.
All this being said (1) the more you put in, the more you will get out and (2) we are wholeheartedly in your corner, and this course will be time-saving and energy-giving and will save you so many hours of stress and disconnection every week.
We’re so glad you’ve asked! A few key ways…
At the Center for Thriving Relationships, you can be assured that all of our coaches have been highly trained in all-things-relationships. You will be supported by a true relationship expert who is in a thriving partnership themselves — not someone who is just going to passively sit back and listen to you argue.
We hear horror stories from couples who went to couples counseling elsewhere, and it made things worse. If this is the case for you, we are so sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who offer support to couples who either (1) don’t have a thriving relationship themselves or (2) haven’t ever been comprehensively trained in how to specifically support couples.
Also, whereas some therapy over-focuses on what isn’t working, we are sure to spend plenty of time helping you gain the powerful tools you need to make things work amazingly from now on.
We love helping you understand the past (this is vital), and it can be so illuminating to uncover the source of our patterns. However, we don’t stop there (like some traditional therapy does). We ensure that you are catapulted forward and upward with new strategies and a clear roadmap for thriving in love.
We also know couples are busier than ever, and we know it’s hard enough to find time to schedule a date night. This is why we wanted to create this program — so that, unlike traditional counseling, you can do it on your own timeline, in the comfort of home.
Lastly, chances are — given you are human — you will find yourselves in some new issues months or years after you’ve completed the course. Unlike traditional therapy, it is invaluable to be able to go through the program, again and again, (for free!) whenever you need a tune-up or have new breakthroughs you want to create.
Yes! We are thrilled to live at a time when relationships are taking many different forms. We’re here to help you create the healthiest version of whatever kind of relationship fully honors both of you.
Plus, we’ve found that nearly all of the relationship processes and tools we share work wondrously, not only for romantic relationships, but also help us improve all kinds of relationships in our lives, including those with our families, kids, friends, coworkers, and beyond.
So, again, YES, we will fully welcome and embrace you in your non-traditional relationship!
We assure you – you will learn right away that it’s not scary and is actually really enjoyable, fun, and inspiring and will bring you great relief and peace.
Sessions are done over Skype, Zoom, or phone, and we aim to create the safest space imaginable, filled with loving kindness, empathy, acceptance, and understanding. Our sessions offer a time and place that is set aside from your daily life, routines, and various roles. It is a time when you can fully unload and confidentially process and get support around whatever is happening in your life.
And, even though we aren’t in person, we promise — it feels so personal. We can hardly believe we’ve never actually met or hugged lots of our clients because we feel so close to them!
You get to decide each session what you would like to focus on and what you’d like a breakthrough around. You will be able to sit in a comfortable environment of your choice, and we will have an illuminating conversation, filled with thought-provoking questions that allow you to tap into your own inner wisdom, loving guidance, and an abundance of tools.
We have spent the past 15-20 years immersed in personal transformation training and the past 10+ years passionately studying relationships. We’ve been extensively trained, both traditionally and alternatively, in what we believe are the absolute best strategies for thriving, individually and as a couple.
Couples often tell us that their sessions with us feel like a date night! It is our greatest joy, passion, and honor to do this work with people, and you will find that it shows.
Easy! We have a simple online scheduler where you can sign up for sessions at your convenience. We have morning, daytime, evening, weekday, and weekend options available for you.
Absolutely! We support many individuals, and it is amazing to see the amount of transformation that can still occur. Of course, we enthusiastically recommend both of you participating but, when that isn’t an option, we warmly welcome just you! It can truly make all the difference to feel like you have someone on your team, someone who can empathize with and understand what you are going through, and someone who has a roadmap to help you get unstuck. Also, when YOU change in strategic ways, you will be amazed by the changes you see in your partner!
Also, if your partner is hesitant, we invite you to contact us where he or she can freely ask questions and express concerns.
Yes! We especially recommend signing up for the Ultimate Thrive in Love program, with coaching included. This will give you the personal support you need to most effectively navigate this delicate time.
Affairs, as devastating as they are, can be turned into the most powerful catalysts for growth. Going through this program will allow you to (1) heal from the affair, (2) transform whatever wasn’t working before to make your relationship better than ever, and (3) create an affair-proof relationship for the years to come.
No problem! You will have lifetime access to the course so you can revisit it again and again. You can also easily make up one (or any) of the weeks when time opens up for you again.
If you choose the Ultimate Thrive in Love program, the only thing you will need to complete within the 90 days is the 8 coaching hours, but there is lots of flexibility as to how you spread those out over 90 days. We will totally work with you to make it possible.
Well, this is an easy answer! There really is no comparison when it comes to receiving private, customized support and guidance. Each coaching session is tailor-fit to exactly what you need, and your coach will help you bust through sticky areas, hold you accountable to making positive changes, and skyrocket your growth — no question.
That being said, if your budget truly only allows for the self-guided option, you will still experience amazing breakthroughs.
Absolutely! In the Ultimate Thrive in Love Program, some coaching sessions are included that we are confident will help you move through sticky areas, stack on track, and be accountable to actually implementing the positive changes. However, there is no limit to the number of sessions you can add on at any time. Rates for additional sessions are $65 for 30 minutes, $125 for 1 hour, or $225 for 2 hours. These can simply be paid to your coach as you go. Easy! Most of all, know that you aren’t alone in this whatsoever, and we want to ensure your greatest success.
"I cherish the vivid memory of that wonderful turning point in my most important relationship.
What a breath of fresh air it was to finally feel heard – to feel known and loved! My partner and I are now blissfully married, and still we practice the habits we first learned through Thrive in Love every day.
In fact, Bret and Christine’s method of conflict resolution is so effective that I have used it to break through interpersonal deadlocks on multiple crucial occasions in other relationships over the years. Their teachings are essential for everyone.”
~ Michael Gough
"Working with the Center For Thriving Relationships has been an incredibly rewarding experience for us.
Years ago, after a stressful relocation, we found ourselves repeating damaging patterns and unable to effectively communicate with each other. From the beginning stages of working with them in navigating our relationship stress to our celebration of 10 years of marriage, we have really reaped the rewards of our investment.
We have always felt wholeheartedly supported by both Christine and Bret and believe they are truly committed to their clients and the success of their relationships. I can sincerely recommend their services to any couples who might be struggling with navigating crisis or stress to couples looking to explore or grow within their lives. The Center for Thriving Relationships is an invaluable asset to our world.”
~ Michelle Izzo White and Ricky White

"Bret and Christine taught us the most powerful relationship gems of wisdom that saved our marriage, as well as strengthened our bond tremendously.
Thanks to the incredible support, inspiration and role modeling that we received from Christine and Bret, we are proud to say that we shifted from being on a verge of a divorce to the most fun, creative, connected and empowered relationship of our dreams.”
~ Gabriel Lantz and Yulia Azriel
