About Laurie Weiss
I have become a relationship communication expert by spending nearly forty-five years studying, practicing and teaching relationship building skills. I'm internationally-known as an executive coach, consultant, psychotherapist, speaker and author. I've had the joy of presenting my work throughout the US and in 13 other countries.
I've been married to my husband, Jonathan B. Weiss since 1960 and in business with him since 1972. We have practiced in Littleton, Colorado, since 1972, focusing on helping clients create dynamic, effective personal and working relationships. We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.

As a woman, business owner, wife, mother and grandmother I think my most important job is to contribute to creating a world where people love and respect themselves and each other.
Early in my career I did this face to face with my clients and students. Then I learned that I could reach more people through my writing.
I know that cultural myths and misinformation prevent people from having the loving relationships they deserve. Great relationships are not made in heaven. They do not need to end when you fall out of love, are not always exciting, and are not limited to a few lucky people.
Great relationships do require information, attention, time and commitment to the challenge of creating them.
My biggest contribution is being able to see, feel and know that wonderful relationships are possible in challenging personal and business situations. I help you create your own wonderful relationships by helping you have those important conversations that build your relationships.
On a personal note, my life has been richer, fuller and more exciting than I ever imagined it could be. Two accidents, my introduction to Transactional Analysis in 1968 and to Feminism in 1970 led us to create a business and personal partnership that far exceeded my wildest expectations.
Each time I considered retirement, I discovered I enjoyed my work too much to stop completely.
A few years ago, Jonathan and I encountered Logosynthesis, a revolutionary new European process for guided change. We were so intrigued with this tool that could let us do work that used to take months in just a few hours or even just a few minutes, that we got even more involved. Now we are the only 2 certified Logosynthesis Practioners and Basic Trainers in the United States.
In my work, I am committed to helping people learn to love and appreciate themselves and each other. I have an unshakeable belief, based on nearly 45 years of experience, that people are doing the very best they can with the resources they have available to them at any given moment.
As a relationship coach, I listen "between the lines" and respond to what people mean instead of just to what they say. I search for the essential aliveness in my clients and encourage their uniqueness. I am not afraid to speak difficult truths, and I help my clients discover what is true for them and learn to communicate it with compassion, grace and skill.
My passion for experiential learning has led me on many strange and wonderful paths. I have been blessed by elephants in India, walked on hot coals, visited Camelot, flown over the Pyramids, and viewed the temples at Khajurajo.
My first book, "Recovery from CoDependency: It's Never too Late to Reclaim Your Childhood" was written with Jonathan and published in 1988. "An Action Plan for Your Inner Child: Parenting Each Other" and "I Don't Need Therapy, but Where Do I Turn for Answers?" were released in the early 90's, and "What is the Emperor Wearing? Truth-Telling in Business Relationships" was published in 1998. I released "Being Happy Together: How to Have a Fabulous Relationship With Your Life Partner in Less Than an Hour a Week" and "99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Saying I Do" was published in 2012. My work has been translated into Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and Mandarin, Russian and Simple Chinese Characters.
I have been translating much of the information in these books into online courses and ebooks in order to keep the materials relevant and usable in today's world. I have lost count of the booklets, ebooks and special reports and articles that I have available in many places. You can find a list of many of them at http://www.LaurieWeiss.com
Jonathan and I and several colleagues started Rocky Mountain Transactional Analysis Institute in 1972. The others left a few years later and a few years later we changed our business name to Empowerment Systems. I earned my M.A. in Psychology in 1974 and my Ph. D. in Health and Human Services 20 years later. I am also a Certified Transactional Analysis Trainer with Clinical and Organizational Specialties and a Master Certified Coach.

The author, Dr. Laurie Weiss has a multifaceted background as an internationally known psychotherapist, executive and life coach, marriage counselor, relationship communication expert, trainer of professionals, speaker, grandmother and author of 13 books.
After over 40 years practicing psychotherapy and coaching, she had no intention of starting a new phase of her career. Then a colleague helped her resolve a persistent, stressful problem using an amazing new technique. She was astounded that he did it in just a few minutes, while standing on the sidewalk outside of a restaurant, using only words.
Dr. Weiss was so intrigued with this recently discovered tool that she and her husband of over 50 years, Dr. Jonathan B Weiss, went to Nova Scotia, Canada to learn the technique. Using it, they were thrilled to help their clients make important life changes in a fraction of the time, and with a fraction of the pain ordinarily associated with psychotherapy. Four years and considerable studying later, they became the only Certified Logosynthesis Practitioners and Basic Trainers in the United States.

It's Never Too Late To Reclaim Your Childhood
by Laurie Weiss and Jonathan B. Weiss
This book may be used as a map for therapists and Adult Children on the road to recovery from Co-Dependency. Developmental issues are addressed, patterns of substitute behavior are identified and a treatment plan to meet the needs of the Inner Child is created.
Adult Children are in the position of trying to manage their adult lives on the basis of decisions made by mistreated children. Sometimes the pain of carrying out these life-repressing decisions becomes so overwhelming that they try to self-medicate it. The resulting addictive or compulsive substitute behaviors, which represent a denial of what their Inner Child really needs, typically make the situation even more unmanageable. Even though Co-Dependents are usually unaware of the source of their own dysfunctional patterns, they recognize that their lives aren't working and come for help.
In therapy Co-dependents can gain permission, information and modeling in order to learn what is naturally learned by children who grow up in healthy families. Through this corrective parenting the Inner Child can be healed.
