This class will (re)define your marriage:
Looking for a way to secure your relationship longterm?
”It was a relief to hear Rebecca voice aloud the struggles I face in my marriage. She shared stories I could relate to. Through her course, she provided realistic strategies to face these struggles and to take responsibility for what I bring into my marriage.Diana Crabtree GreenCPA, Founder of Buck the Budget
You’re new to marriage (or you’re in a forever relationship) and you want to start right.
You know that habits form unconsciously. You want careers and kids, a house and a 401K, but how do you balance it all? You know that intentional habits will make an enormous difference, so you want to start your marriage right.
Life is great, but you want to be ready if/when challenges come.
The one thing you know is that life won’t always be easy. You want to establish strong habits that will allow you and your sweetheart to grow closer so you are a united team when hard times arrive. You know that good communication doesn’t happen by accident and you want to learn concrete skills so you can be friends and share secrets forever.
The sex is great now, but you want to continue to be attracted to each other in the decades to come.
You’ve heard tons of people tell you to enjoy the romance now because it will fade. You don’t need to have butterflies each time you see your spouse from now to eternity, but you want to cultivate habits that will keep you feeling madly in love for the lifetime you expect to spend together.
Reset Your Relationship
You love your partner but it’s time to hit the reset button.
You’ve fallen into some bad habits. You nag. You keep score: and your partner never measures up. You want to feel like you’re on the same team again, ready to conquer the world together. You know you can do better, but you need a kickstart.
You want to stop feeling like this is the end
Every time there’s conflict you have this sinking feeling: this is the beginning of the end. Your relationship is beginning to look like your parents’ and you don’t like what you see. You want to rewrite the script that keeps playing with each argument. You love your spouse, but you need some tools to handle conflict with more grace.
The spark is gone and you feel invisible
You know you love each other, but daily life is mundane. You’re bored, or worse, you’re feeling bitter, lonely, or resentful. You don’t have to go back to the butterfly feeling when you dated, but you’d like to feel excited again about having sex.
”Rebecca’s class helped us find new ways to reliably connect. Before Marriage 101, we were taking each other for granted, but we learned to notice each other more deeply. We pay more attention to the small, everyday moments we share.Alice Whitaker and Ryan PascoBoston, Massachusetts
Why Marriage 101?
The common denominator with all my clients has been relationship struggles. I’m a master certified coach working privately since 2011.
It didn’t matter why they were coaching with me—clutter clearing, career expansion, writing, or fitness—eventually the relationship subject would arise. The subject was always broached with head hanging low. Every single person was ashamed of the struggles they were having in their primary relationship. And they were certain they were the only one.
- A manager who could run a fabulously articulate meeting but couldn’t talk to her spouse.
- A couple whose daily argument was, “What’s for dinner?”
- A couple who still loved each other, but it had been more than a year since they’d had
The hidden shame in my clients lives matched my biggest interest: What makes relationships work? And why do we all struggle with the same things?
This class is a co-creation with my clients, which means I’ve seen these tools work to heal relationships.
You will realize you’re not the only one whose struggling. And you’ll get tools to help you connect with your sweetheart.
”I took Rebecca’s Marriage 101 class with my husband two years into our marriage. Not only was her facilitation practical, it was the perfect level of personal and approachable.
I learned to look at myself and my partner’s tendencies and needs in new ways, and built skills to support those new findings throughout Rebecca’s classes.
I also really loved the ‘cohort’ model, and found it helpful to both learn from and see other couples navigating their communication challenges. All in all, I found Rebecca’s class to be highly relatable, and an easy commitment with deep roots that will help my relationship find more harmony and connection for years to come.”Lindsey DavisSalt Lake City, Utah

”Rebecca's class has reawakened our marriage. We have young kids and most times, it feels like we are on autopilot day to day. Through taking Marriage 101 we became aware of who were we showing up as in our relationship. By bringing this awareness back, we have been able to work on our communication skills and pull ourselves out of what has felt like a fog of monotony in our marriage. I can't think of any marriage that would not benefit greatly from taking Rebecca's class. Her honesty, humor and tenderness is a true gift as a teacher.Betsy FryMarried for 10 years
I am Rebecca Mullen and the thing I’m most proud of in my life is my marriage.
My husband and I met in junior high school so we grew up together and navigated a lot of changes. We’ve been through big adventures like flipping a raft in the icy waters of the Alsek River in Alaska. And we’ve comforted each other during several family deaths including my mother, step-father and brother. We have struggled financially for years, and, later, we learned to invest together.
Why am I proud? This is not the same marriage we started with. I would say that our marriage died twice and we managed to find something new in the ashes of the old. During those resurrections of our love we both had to grow. I noticed I was pretty controlling and he realized how important it is to me that he communicate. It’s been a wild ride, far more frightening than that raft flip and lonelier, at times, than losing my mom.
I made a vow after my parents’ divorce, that I would create a whole family. Have you heard the life-mastery phrase: do one, see one, teach one? I searched out every resource I could find to help me understand what it takes to make a relationship work during the difficult times as well as the times of joy. I’ve been practicing see one for 50 years. I’ve been in the do one phase of marriage for more than three decades. Now I’m eager to share with you what I’ve learned, and I want you to join me as I teach one.
”I’m a raving fan. I’m telling my friends to take the course. And I told Rebecca to raise her price.Dianna Crabtree GreenGrand Junction, Colorado

This personal growth class was created based upon my years as a coach working with couples as well as decades of research. As with any personal growth, the critical factor is you: The effort, time and dedication you put in. I am not responsible for you success: Your success is based on you showing up for yourself. Neither am I responsible for your failure: You won’t change if you don’t engage. I promise to provide you with a great toolbox filled with insight and practical habits. These students agree that they were happy with the results they obtained.
