I'd met Tara a few years before, and I knew we needed to work with her when I found myself looking for coaches that were just like her—bubbly, bright, and whip smart about the reality of romantic relationships, in every form. Tara embraced our non-traditional romance—I am a female, while Matt is bi-gendered, where most of the time he identifies as a man, and some of the time he identifies as a woman. We didn't know any other couples that were in our situation to talk to, so Tara became the expert, friend, and godmother we needed. Tara helped us see our relationship more clearly, challenged us to explore our discomfort zone, and held the space as we learned what we both wanted for each other. Matt and I learned how to fight better, love better, communicate more easily, and pretty much become experts at the things we were just fine at, really early in our relationship. It was one of the best gifts we've ever given to ourselves. Today, we're engaged(!) and as we plan our wedding, the only person we can imagine marrying us is our beloved Tara Caffelle.
