Understanding the patterns, drivers, disciplines and mindset of extraordinary relationships can be the real difference between an average relationship and one beyond your dreams.

Creating an Extraordinary Relationship
Have you ever wondered what makes up an extraordinary relationships? Why do some couples that seem closer and more in love with each other after years or decades of being together? I’m not sure about you, but I was never taught the specific understandings, strategies or disciplines that are required to have the relationship of your dreams. I was taught to treat people kind and how I wanted to be treated and that would be enough. What I discovered, and like many others, the rules about relationships were something that got passed down from family generations, from their thoughts and beliefs and the role models that they, and we, learned from. While many of these learnings were directed from solid values and good intention, they often lacked the proper context, consistency and integration. As a resort, I proceeded into my most precious relationships resorting to trial and error in hope of a good outcome. I found that approach often resulted in more disappointment, more frustration and depleting confidence…
After emerging from the darkness of an unbearable divorce and driven by the appreciation for the emotional and spiritual pain suffered, I vowed to study relationships at the deepest levels to never experience that place again. For over 10 years I read, watched, evaluated and tested theories and concepts to create a system that could produce an extraordinary relationship every time. By understanding the drivers of our own needs and what love is comprised of, the associations and the rules we have toward it, we can begin to identify, appreciate and change the very things that sabotage our relationships. Equally, by understanding the difference between love and desire and the importance of practicing both we can begin to intentionally craft better strategies that lead to confident, vibrant, balanced and passionate relationships for a lifetime.
After studying couples with extraordinary relationships, learning from the best experts in the world, to observing, coaching and evaluating others I discovered key patterns of behavior, beliefs and practices that were not only transformational but healing. As a result, I have developed a system that not only was easy to understand but also easy to integrate for any relationship to be extraordinary. Whether you are in a relationship and have lost the vibrancy and passion or just want more of it or if you feel like you have grown apart from each other emotionally, mentally or spiritually, we can show you how to bring it back. If you have tried traditional relationship therapy and it hasn’t worked or still feel like you lack something in your most precious relationship we can show you the practical things you are missing and how to find a place of complete joy and fulfillment. If you are serious about creating a relationship of your dreams beyond even your own imagination, no matter if you are with someone now or single and looking; you owe it to yourself and your current or future partner to understand what we uncovered and what you can do to make your relationship the most incredible one of your life.

Why Choose the io Group?
Extraordinary relationships require understanding, strategy and innovation. Without the right emotional states our pursuit, practice and protection of these things become complacent, compromised and eventually lost. We have studied the worst, learned from the best and helped the most difficult situations become not only recoverable but extraordinary.
What burdens are you carrying?
Most of us filter our relationships through our past and many times unconsciously. Often these emotions are survival mechanisms that have never been updated but they served a purpose at some point in our lives. We carry these emotions from relationship to relationship which often scar or inhibit our ability to truly love and feel alive. When we learn a new set of emotional resources and let go of our conditioning, we can then learn to love ourselves and discover the path of who we want to be – not what is wrong with our partner.
