Do you want strategies to control the thoughts which undermine your relationship?
Do you want a relationship which supports you and your partner as individuals, and strengthens you as a couple?
Are you looking for an approach which is based on objective strategy to create your present and future as a couple, rather than subjective, emotional reactions based on past events?
What is Marriage, LLC?
Couples coaching supports two different stages of a relationship, those couples looking to establish strong foundations before commitment or couples who want to strengthen a current relationship and get out of a "rut".
Unlike couples therapy, coaching couples sessions focus on the present and future, using strength-based and goal-focused approaches. This allows couples to think about their relationship strategically and objectively to create strategies for their present relationship and build a plan for their future.
This is done in the context of Dr. Robin's proprietary coaching model that uses a business framework and cognitive-behavioral strategies to support clients in creating and executing concrete plans for optimal functioning in their relationships.
Let's get started
Dr. Robin is clearly well qualified and extremely capable in her role. We both enjoy working with her.
Robin is a great listener while also eliciting helpful dialogue through perceptive and highly relevant questions. She offers thoughtful suggestions that show she has been thinking about our past discussions and where we are in terms of progress. Having never been to a life coach before (but my share of therapists), my experience with Robin has been very enlightening in the best possible way. Through thoughtful questions and suggestions, she has been very helpful in improving my communication which in turn has had a positive effect on the relationship I have with my spouse.
Working with Dr. Robin has been nothing short of exceptional. My husband and I work together and had blurred lines of when to shut off business and get back to being present in our relationship and family. Using relatable business scenarios my husband and I were able to make easy, but life-changing alterations that have already helped to ensure our long-term strength and happiness as a couple. It has also to allowed us to be a positive example to our child, and as a byproduct a more productive and successful team within our business as well. Forever thankful to have met Dr. Robin!
If you or someone you love is LGBTQ and needs someone safe and amazing to talk to I highly recommend Dr. Robin Buckley at the Insights Group in Rye, NH. She specializes in LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 Psychology services for children over 11, pre-teens and adults. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know her and she is truly an amazing woman who instantly makes you feel at ease and safe.
Doctor Buckley is an outstanding person, helping my sister and I with many things, including self awareness. Through her classes, Empowering Girls and Psychology In Our Lives, we have learned to condition our brains to value positivity and kindness. My sister and I both agree that she has taught us so much that will continue to help us in the future. The things she has taught us have made it easier for us to transition into a new school. Overall she creates a comfortable environment for kids to be relaxed and she makes it easy to express yourself. We are very thankful for everything she has done.
Robin provided a great team building session for my annual staff retreat. Highlights included some goal setting and sharing positive attributes about our team members, along with some short break out sessions for a nice, uplifting session. It was brief but chockfull of great content and coaching. We will be back and I would gladly recommend Robin for team building workshops and other relationship coaching.
Thank you. The [strategies] are giving me a lot of relief. I've struggled to gain control over my reactions to spiraling emotions and these methods are helping me stay focused on my goals. My imposter syndrome has lessened and I'm finding myself making consistent steps towards the career I WANT.
Thank you for all of your help these last 6 months. Life changing.
Thank you for all the help in getting to this point. When I started with you, I never would have imagined feeling strong and confident in any way as I am beginning to now.
Our relationship was falling a bit off track. After the adoption of our daughter, we noticed that issues kept coming up between us. It seemed that after 10 years of dating and marriage, the old ways we were interacting weren't working now that we had more responsibilities in our life. We reached out to Dr. Robin after hearing about her work with some friends and the fact that she worked with gay couples. We didn't feel comfortable with "couples therapy" but we wanted to make sure to get support before things got us to the point of needing theapy. Dr. Robin's no nonsense approach kept us on task with homework while still letting us guide the direction of the coaching. We felt like each session led us closer to our relationship goals and in the end, we had a blueprint of how to oversee and direct our marriage in the future. Thanks, Robin!
Dr. Robin's approach is direct and all business. As we were taking steps to get married, we knew we didn't want to repeat the past mistakes from our earlier marriages. We also didn't want to do couples therapy because we didn't have issues between us, but we were looking for a way to make our marriage work better than our past experiences. We picked Dr. Robin because we had heard about her business approach to relationships and since both of us work in business (finance and marketing), we decided to try it. We cannot stress enough how amazing her approach is! There was no "deep dive" into our pasts. We focused on where we were and where we wanted to get to. We applied solid frameworks to our relationship, putting it into practical and tactical terms. We noticed improvements in our communication almost immediately and routinely use the plan we created with Dr. Robin in our relationship.
Dr. Robin has an excellent grasp of how to open conversations and pull on threads that help unravel thoughts and pathways to better understanding. She has helped me with my control, my relationships with other women and my husband. During a particularly difficult time recently, she was able to help me decide some next steps with a special friend. I love that she is engaging and kind but very knowledgeable and straightforward in her sessions.
Dr. Robin helped get me back on track. After losing my job, I felt demoralized. I kept wondering why didn't they "like me" and how could I expect to find another job in my 50s. My sessions with Dr. Robin first helped me attack the thoughts that were creating the self-defeating emotions and not allowing me to think clearly about my situation. Once I adopted the strategies she taught me, I was then able to define what I wanted in my next career move. I felt empowered, like I could select the right organization which matched my values and interests, rather than needing to take whatever job I might be offered. After only four months of coaching, I was back to job searching and after only three different organizational interviews, I was offered my dream job, earning double what I had been at my original workplace. I honestly don't think I could've done this, especially in such a short period of time, without Dr. Robin.
I was worried about my daughter and felt helpless. She finally agreed to meet with Dr. Robin after having a panic attack. Knowing she was about to go off to college, she finally understood she needed to address her stress. She had been to therapy before but had never connected with a therapist. She quickly and naturally connected with Dr. Robin through coaching and started to open up to her immediately. I could just see this huge sense of relief come over her after the first session. After a couple of more sessions, I saw a complete 360 with her. She lifted out of her depression and she started talking to me. It’s as if she now had the tools to be able to express herself and feel confident in what she had to say. She put the sessions to use and did the work to help herself. She values Dr. Robin’s advice, respects her as an expert and opens herself up to accepting guidance. She is now a happier young woman, much more confident, more expressive and more motivated. I am not worried about her anymore and as a mother, that is the greatest feeling I could have. I am so happy we got her in with Dr. Robin, it has been life changing.
