Understanding Your Journey

Frequency of Sessions:

We strongly suggest weekly sessions, or no less than 2 sessions per month.


You will have homework after every session. The homework is essential.

What are Sessions Like?

During each session we will work through pain points & go over the homework. You will gain feedback, helpful insights, accountability and wisdom. We will also teach you critical relationship skills. Harry and Dawn are very insightful, mature, honest, firm, caring and funny!

Session Location & Etiquette

  • To prepare for your session, consider gently reminding your partner of the appointment and making sure kids and pets are occupied so you can focus on the session.

  • During COVID-19, all sessions are virtual until further notice. We look forward to seeing DMV residents in person soon!



You may email or text us at any time and we will get back to you as soon possible, usually within 24 hours. Harry’s cell: 224-717-0527 and Dawn’s cell: 224-717-0528.
