Coaching

Relationship Coaching:

Shela Dean is passionate about helping couples have the emotional intimacy that is the linchpin of all great relationships. Whether you are just now thinking about marriage or you’ve got a decade’s worth of “stuff” that has become a barrier to intimacy, Shela can help.

Throughout her career, Shela has seen couples in all marriage stages, from great to needs-work to needs-serious-help. Relationships aren’t fine one day, then fail the next. Almost always, the issues separating couples are a series of hurts and disappointments that turn into a big brick wall, preventing real emotional and marriage intimacy.

Shela’s practical been-there-done-that approach to relationship coaching helps you hammer down those walls so you can have the relationship you’ve always dreamed of—deep emotional intimacy with the person you love.

Shela will coach you in person in central Virginia, or on the phone from anywhere in the world.

ReDate Your Mate®:

ReDate Your Mate® is a four-step strategy developed by Shela Dean to help couples bring the best of dating back into their marriage—not just on date night but 24/7.

With the demands of daily life, it’s easy to slip into the rut you said you’d never fall into, only to wake up one morning and realize you’re effectively divorced, more roommates than spouses: avoiding each other, avoiding intimacy, and avoiding dealing with the issues that challenge your marriage. When that happens, divorce often becomes reality. But you don’t need to trade your spouse for a new model to have the marriage of your dreams. You really can have the exciting, sexy, romantic relationship you once had. Shela will show you how.

Shela will also help you, with or without formal coaching, put the zing back into date night. Need some creative ideas? Shela’s got them!

Shela will coach you in person in central Virginia, or on the phone from anywhere in the world.

Divorce Coaching:

As an attorney, relationship coach, and someone who has gone through divorce, Shela Dean understands at the deepest level how costly—emotionally and financially—divorce can be. As painful as breaking up a marriage may be, it doesn’t have to be financially or emotionally devastating. It doesn’t have to be ugly if the parties take the point of view that each should be left in the best possible position to build a new life. Yes, that’s really  possible no matter how bitter, angry and hurt you may now be feeling. Shela will show you how.
