Meet Jessica Myers-Adams, aka The Relationship Visionary. This powerhouse of motivation is a licensed clinical social worker, certified relationship coach, and captivating author and speaker.
Her book, “What To Do When You Do Give a F*ck,” has garnered high praise and attention for its no- nonsense advice on how to turn around failing relationships. Through her coaching program, Couples Speak, Jessica has helped countless couples mend their broken bonds and rediscover the joy of genuine connection.
But her journey to success wasn’t an easy one. After hitting rock bottom in her relationship, Jessica faced a tough decision: continue down a path of despair, or fight for something better. She chose the latter and, through her struggles, discovered a powerful method to transform relationships. And Jessica’s drive for excellence doesn’t stop there.
She’s an Ironman finisher, with her sights set on a grueling 100-mile running race in September 2023. But she’s not doing it just for the glory – she’s also dedicating her runs to help support the operation of schools for kids in Kenya. With her infectious energy and proven track record of success, Jessica is a true inspiration for anyone looking to overcome adversity and achieve their dreams.
fighting, or feeling stuck to create mutual respect, trust, and affection. Lauren’s strength is helping clients gain awareness of the power they possess to lead the relationship towards their goals. In addition to working with her clients, she is a leading contributor to the therapist training program, where she writes to dozens of therapists worldwide each week and offers guidance to support relationship change.
Lauren still remembers a particular session from years ago which motivated her to seek specialized training in working with couples. Even with her best efforts, the tension in the room was still apparent – and it inspired her to educate herself on the dynamic of how individuals interact in a way that creates an environment of similarity and difference, often with a tremendous amount of tension. Lauren is grateful for the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy and the treatment map that it provides.
Lauren is also committed to continuing to help couples therapists learn how to use the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy because this approach has become the central approach for her clinical practice with any client looking to improve relationships with others or themselves. Lauren has also found much more comfort, connectedness, and differentiation in personal relationships since beginning to live by the principles of the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy.
Lauren believes that there is tremendous value in being able to take just a moment or two to consider what is being said before responding. This quote encapsulates this well: “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” -Viktor Frankl
Lauren considers being present with couples and individual clients throughout their healing journey to be a privilege. Are you ready to start your journey of awareness and growth right now?
