What is Relational Life Therapy (RLT)?
Get fresh perspectives and interventions for your couples therapy sessions as you observe Terry Real and Desirae Ysasi work LIVE and in-depth with one couple using Relational Life Therapy.
RLT equips couples therapists and relationship professionals with the powerful tools to elegantly and confidently guide your clients into authentic connection—with themselves, others, and the planet as a whole.
Developed by master couples and family therapist Terry Real, RLT incorporates perspectives and skills from systems therapy, feminist therapy, and coaching, together with current evidence-based modalities, to provide practitioners with an innovative approach to couples work and relationship transformation that breaks many of the rules of traditional therapy.

“I found my home in RLT…
I've done all kinds of trainings over the years but never found a model that truly fit for me. I had become "eclectic" in my approach, never really mastering any one approach. I longed for a model that encouraged me to myself—open, authentic, and most importantly, effective. I found my home in RLT.My practice was already very successful, but since RLT certification, it's skyrocketed. I had to close my practice to new clients. It's also allowed me to be more selective about the clients that I work with. And I'm re-energized by the work: I used to be worn out working with couples, but now I love it. Success and making a difference is a powerful antidote to burnout!”
“The practical and positive approach of RLT has helped my clients see change almost immediately…By weaving past trauma and its impact on relationships and by building new skills together, my clients have expressed new deep and meaningful connections. RLT is not just a training program, it is a community that works in unity to offer ongoing support to therapists as well as clients.”
“I have seen clients that have been stuck for years/decades begin to show growth…The gift of RLT work for the therapist is that you cannot provide this work for your clients without diving into yourself and one’s own personal growth. Which then trickles (or is a waterfall) into our own personal life and relationships that gives me permission to grow, hold myself accountable, see my children’s actions and perspectives change while we all challenge to love ourselves at the same time. On a professional level, I have seen clients that have been stuck for years/decades begin to show growth and move towards their authentic self with pride, dignity and confidence that they’ve never experienced before. Life Changing….”
