I Believe

I believe that there is always more to learn when it comes to loving the people who matter the most to us, and that it is within our most important relationships that real growth and the deepest joy abides.

About Debby Gullery

I am a relationship coach with over 25 years of experience coaching and teaching relationship and marriage seminars. I’m also the author of Small Steps to Bigger Love: A Practical Guide to Marriage as a Spiritual Practice, that includes a small group study guide.

I love to teach people new ways of looking at themselves and their loved ones, and believe that there is always more to learn when it comes to loving the people who matter the most to us.  I have a toolbox full of practical, simple strategies that help individuals prepare for or heal from relationships, helps couples to communicate better and become more intentional, and help parents and their young adult children find common ground and deeper connection.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Community and Social Change and studied at the Blanton Peale Institute for Pastoral Counseling. I have trained in many of the best marriage and relationship education programs, including Michelle Weiner Davis' Divorce-Busting, John Gottman, PREP and Relationship Enhancement.

I have also created my own curriculum for young adults, engaged couples, and married couples.  I’ve taught relationship skills and media literacy for several gap programs, and conducted workshops for engaged and married couples around the country and abroad. I am also experienced in working with teens, young adults and couples who may be struggling with pornography.

It is my deepest desire to continue to help young people, their parents and couples of every age and stage to improve and deepen their connection of heart with their loved ones.

Growing to Greatness Workshop for Young Adults

Debby conducted a two-day workshop for our Gap Program. The participants were between 18 and 21, and she had them captivated for the whole weekend! She covered important topics like media literacy, communicating with parents, goal-making and healthy strategies for emotional growth, and the Q&A sessions were phenomenal. She answered their questions with expertise and sensitivity and made it safe for the participants to bring up challenging topics like pornography and addiction. We invite her back every year!more

High Noon Conference on the Challenges of Pornography

We invited Debby to present at our first national High Noon conference on the impact of pornography in our current culture. She gave three powerful presentations on the challenges of pornography for parents, for singles and for couples. She was informed, direct and sensitive, and managed to challenge and uplift the audience at the same time.more

She also conducted several breakout sessions for people whose partners were struggling with porn addiction, and they were well attended and deeply appreciated by the participants.

Engaged couples

I began working with Debby before I was engaged. I had just come out of a difficult relationship and needed perspective and healing. Her coaching style was the perfect mix of challenge and support and I loved how practical her approach was. About a year later, when I met the man of my dreams, she worked with us to navigate some tough issues that came up around the area of commitment and sexuality. We recently got married and Debby was a guest of honor at our wedding!more
