“I have experienced and benefited from Dr. Jan Hoistad’s work with couples and creative partnering in several wonderful ways.
Together with my husband, we’ve taken her workshop, worked through her exercises and suggestions, and read her book. Dr. Jan offers couples guidance that is respectful, honest, direct, and hopeful. She has assembled precisely the information that couples need to make their partnership truly work, and delivers it stripped of mystique, worded with clarity, and honed to an elegant essence. She is an engaging, entertaining speaker and uses a wealth of illustrative anecdotes drawn from her years of experience working with couples; this gives her workshop participants great faith in her teaching and keeps them fully engaged in the topic. Her approach is both wise and realistic, without any pie-in-the-sky illusions; she has been in the trenches and knows the hard work and tremendous rewards involved in actively building a stronger partnership.
Personally, there is much daily evidence that our marriage reaped great benefits, and as a bonus, my husband and I each feel we benefited from the workshop as individuals, as well. We are more thoughtful and intentional about our partnering, and more adult in both our behaviors toward each other and in our separate work lives. I have wholeheartedly recommended Dr. Jan’s workshop to many friends and will continue to do so. A Dr. Jan workshop should be required pre-nuptial training!
What Dr. Jan does is life-changing stuff. She improves marriages and strengthens unions. Any couple would benefit greatly from Dr. Jan’s workshop—and, they would enjoy themselves and each other. I recommend her and her workshop very highly.”
