Who Is Terry Real?
Terry Real, creator of Relational Life Therapy
Terry Real is an internationally recognized family therapist, bestselling author, and sought-after speaker.
A former senior faculty member of the Family Institute of Cambridge in Massachusetts and a retired Clinical Fellow of the Meadows Institute in Arizona, Terry is renowned for his ability to save couples on the brink of divorce using the progressive approach he created, Relational Life Therapy. RLT equips people with the powerful relational skills they need to cultivate meaningful connections—to themselves, each other, and the planet as a whole.
His original insights on couples therapy, relationships, and men’s issues have been featured in outlets from Oprah and Vogue to The Today Show and CNN. His latest book is the New York Times bestseller, US: Getting Past You and Me to Build a More Loving Relationship.
Anna Sterk is an LMFT in private practice in Minnesota. A senior RLT therapist and esteemed member of the RLT Faculty, Anna teaches practitioners from all over the world to expertly use RLT to spark deep and enduring transformations in their clients.
Learning how to build and sustain healthy relationships has been the journey of Anna’s life, and not always an easy or straightforward path. It was life changing for her to build on the personal work she was doing when she started studying with Terry Real in 2012, and she feels honored to pass along what she has learned to clients and through teaching the relational skills in bootcamps, practicums, and mentoring.
“Terry’s work provided foundations of “telling the truth” to clients. I did it easily with individuals but stumbled with couples. Now I LOVE working with couples. It is now always profoundly moving & instructive.”
“Some of the things I love about Terry Real and his work are the practical steps, down-to-earth guidance and his model of having the courage and respect to be honest with couples when one partner is behaving in a way that needs to be addressed first.”
