Shela Dean is a Relationship Coach, author and speaker. She has counselled more than 2,000 couples since 1983 and is the bestselling author of Frequent Foreplay Miles, Your Ticket to Total Intimacy, a guide to improving intimacy for couples, Frequent Foreplay Miles for the Remarried, and ReDate Your Mate, 4 Steps to Falling in Love All Over Again (Boomer Edition).
It was during Shela’s two decades as an estate planning attorney, before retiring from law to begin relationship coaching in 2004, that she first began to notice and study the dynamics of married couples. Involved with her clients over prolonged periods of time, Shela not only witnessed their lives unfold, but helped them face such challenges as the death of a child or the loss of health or wealth. Because of her long-term involvement in her clients’ lives, Shela found herself counseling on relationship issues almost as much as on legal matters.
Since retiring from the practice of law, Shela Dean has shared her strategies for creating better relationships through one-on-one relationship coaching, seminars, and through her books. Her unique blend of humor, insight, and practical meat-and-potatoes approach helps couples find a better way to navigate the friendly, and sometimes not-so-friendly, skies of life while having a darned good time doing it. Shela doesn’t sit in an ivory tower. She’s been there and done that . . . .
