    “After 25 years of working as a Psychotherapist and Marriage Counselor I was ready to “hang it all up.” I was more than burnt out. Now, 6 months later, I am reinvested in my work and enjoying it in a brand new way. Renewed energy and enthusiasm for my work has replaced the negativity I was experiencing.  Thanks so much RLT!”

    “The RLI training program empowered me to tackle the toughest marital situations with enthusiasm and a kind heart. Word got around quickly and my couples referrals have multiplied, as has my pleasure doing the work.”

    “After practicing RLT therapy for two years I am receiving numerous referrals for couples work from other therapists.  I have withdrawn from all insurance panels and my income is up!”

    “Before learning Terry Real’s model I would work with couples to problem solve their dilemmas of the day.  I always had misgivings about the long-term potential of my work because although I was aware I was working mostly on the content level with my clients, I did not know how to move in deeper to address with them their relational processes.  Now, having Terry’s model for teaching clients healthy relating, I have guidelines to help them perform the modest miracle of personal transformation on a permanent process level, no matter what the content.  It’s really tremendous to be instrumental in people achieving that.”
