Special Guest Bio: Jayson Gaddis, relationship geek and host of the Smart Couple Podcast, is on a mission to teach people the one class they didn’t get in school–”How to do intimate relationships.” He was emotionally constipated for years before relationship failure forced him to master relationships. Now, he’s married to his amazing wife of 8 years and has two beautiful kids. When he doesn’t live and breathe this stuff with his family, he pretty much gets his ass handed to him.
Ellen Boeder is a psychotherapist, mother, and writer braving the storm of modern womanhood. A strong women’s advocate and feminist, Ellen found herself a bit disoriented when she entered the traditional roles of wife and mother. Having new found respect for the primacy of partnership and family life, she aspires to help women and couples create a fulfilling flow between partnership, career, personal growth, and all the aspects of our lives.
Jayson & Ellen have been together 13 years (give or take with a couple of break ups), married eight. They tossed out the marriage fantasy early on and quickly got how powerful it is to see relationship as a path of transformation and healing. They are unflinching about their commitment to growth and development in order to have a deep, thriving partnership. Their mission is to help others do the same.
