We are relational beings. Our relationships shape us, define us, impact us, transform us.
Successful relationships lead to a fulfilling life. Our kids, partners, siblings and parents, our friendships, colleagueships, and our communities offer us belonging, meaning, growth, fun, and play. It is simultaneously true that we are injured in relationship over and over again.
Amazingly, we have spent out lives creating and navigating relationships without any formal training in how to do it well. We kinda muddle through, learning from what worked and what didn’t and overall we do okay. But okay isn’t quite adequate if what we desire is a deeply satisfying life. And so, in order to have excellent relationships we need to increase our capacity to create and maintain healthy, win-win relationships. Relationship Matters, is here to help you become more skillful and adept at doing relationship well.
Relationship Matters’ unique offering is therapeutic hands-on, dynamic and emotionally intimate. It is based on Lesley’s 10+ years of teaching couples HOW to do relationship smarter. Rooted in attachment therapy and the science of relationship the offering reflects the uniquely intuitive style of Lesley Glenner- psychotherapist/ coach/ guide. Empathetic yet frank, cerebral yet practical, Lesley’s therapeutic guide work serves as a healing balm to relational wounds inevitably felt by all of us living under the harsh conditions of modern relating.
A DIFFERENCE IN RELATING YOU CAN FEEL
The approach embraces all of the self: our light and our dark. It is an honest look at our strengths and limitations, as well as our hopes and fears. Because it is only through knowing the bitter and the sweet that we are able to move forward, break old cycles, heal, and grow.
This work is raw, real, and immensely rewarding.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Find belonging in community with modern parents interested in parenting well. It’s a year of hands-on coaching with intentional, professionally facilitated learning community online.
Our guiding values inform how we show up
HONESTY & AUTHENTICITY
Truth is powerful. Truth heals. It takes courage to be vulnerable and show who we really are. We are not afraid to look at the nitty gritty- the shadow as well as the light as both are essential for integration.
The only perfect path is your own aligned path. Your inner experience is communicated to you though your senses. We support you while you do the good work of deep listening to YOUR truth
We are always becoming, and parts of ourselves are always falling away. In service of self-actualization and aspiration, let’s embrace it- nurture your ever-evolving process.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“You helped remind that there is so much in life that does satisfy and satiate me and my soul… You opened a door I lost the handle to, the heart and spirit behind your eyes was unexpected. Thank you for listening and hearing me today and always. I’m forever appreciative of your time, directness and empathy.”

PARENTING MATTERS: THE COURSE & COMMUNITY
A community incubator to heal and level up your family’s experience together.
HEALING HAPPENS IN RELATIONSHIP
We all intend to be great parents. We promise ourselves that we won’t yell, or be too strict (or too lenient) but generally we default back to what we know. We repeat the past and revise it upon our kids. So unless we are getting explicit about our conditioning we are bound to re-enact it.
CHOSEN COMMUNITY IS THE VILLAGE
We’ve have know that parenting “takes a village” but modern times have squandered that sense of true support. We need to search further than our own neighbors these days. Community is invaluable because being seen and witnessed by multiple others allows us to see ourselves more completely.
WHY JOIN A PARENTING COMMUNITY?
Here’s what participants say:
I wasn’t really up for “airing my dirty laundry” to a group of strangers. I had no idea how much I was secretly suffering and what a facade I was putting on. All I can say is that I am so much more myself now and my family life is night and day from what it was.

Lesley has been an amazing resource and support system for me and my partner. She “gets it” and gives really insightful feedback, even when its something hard to hear. My husband and I were hesitant at first but within one session we know we had finally found the thing!
