Creating Lesbian Relationships With Love

At Lesbian Adventures in Love, we understand the challenges of same-sex relationships. Couples counseling is expensive and often ineffective. Typical relationship courses are full of heterosexuals, and destination retreats for lesbian couples weren’t even a thing until we came along in 2018! Our mission is to provide effective and affordable solutions for your relationship issues. We offer a science-based approach to relationship coaching, specifically for lesbian couples. Our online courses, coaching, and retreats create a supportive and empowering environment tailored to your needs. No cookie cutters here.

We see you. We’ve got you. We are you.

We see you

We’ve got you.

We are you.


Personalized guidance and support to help you and your partner work through challenges and build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship.

Transform your relationship with our vacation experiences designed specifically for lesbian couples. Join other female couples in a safe, supportive environment and achieve effective and rapid results.

Experience a uniquely effective approach to relationship development in our classes, with participants reporting more progress in just six weeks than they did in a year of couples counseling.

No, not really. I do not believe relationship care belongs in the mental health field. Everyone struggles with relationships. They are complicated and involve fundamental skills that most of us were not taught. Healthy relationships require emotionally-regulated systems. In relationships, our nervous systems are in constant communication – sending cues of danger or cues of safety.  It is our job to understand one another’s nervous systems. This is not intuitive. Often, we need help in understanding how to do this. When your system interprets danger, you automatically move into self-protective reactions. When you sense cues of safety, you are able to relax, be playful and let your guard down. Effective communication requires an accurate understanding of automated reactions and conscious efforts to change this wiring. The good news is, you CAN change the automated reactions that are hardwired in your nervous system by doing small things over and over. I'm not interested in labels, in picking sides or rehashing our latest conflicts. I am interested in teaching you the fundamentals of healthy relationships and supporting you in doing the right small things, often.
