Public Speaker. Family & Couples Therapist. Workshop Facilitator. 

I'm Ryan McMillian, trained public speaker, family and marriage therapist, and experienced workshop facilitator. I've been featured or presented for HuffPost, State Farm, CBS, Verizon, local radio stations, the Eastern Pennsylvania United Methodist Conference, and many other reputable conferences and organizations. I've spent the past 10 years of my life guiding couples and individuals to find their inner well of resources. I use evidenced-based therapy to improve the quality of their relationships by reducing shame, blame and increasing communication. 

My road to becoming a therapist, speaker and workshop facilitator for relationships started years ago when I was just a child. My parent's marriage, unfortunately, ended in divorce. That experience helped define my mission in life - to help couples prevent divorce whenever possible and appropriate. Throughout my career, I've proven that counseling does work. From engagement to parenthood, professional counseling can provide the support couples need to communicate effectively and enjoy their lives together. 

So, what makes my counseling strategies different? 

I believe it's my approach. 

Instead of focusing on mainstream talking points, I am down-to-earth and fully understand that life just doesn't work the way we want it to sometimes. That's why I help you re-frame negatives into strengths that can transform your thinking and perspective. I create a safe space where clients feel comfortable being vulnerable. Instead of focusing on the content of disagreements, I help my clients see the importance of transformation. 

I use tools such as couples counseling, premarital counseling, speeches, online courses, journals, and eBooks to break down the barriers that separate couples. Together, we find the love behind the anger and solutions through loving communication. 

Ultimately, I help my clients recognize that the only strength they need is the strength they already possess. We all can make our relationships work. Sometimes we just need a little push in the right direction - I'm that push. 

If you want to tap into your inner courage, strength, resilience and vulnerability to improve your relationships, I want to help. I'll either provide you with the tools you need as a new couple to reduce your likelihood of divorce, or I'll help you transform your seasoned relationship in less than one year. 

Be courageous. Find your strength. Enjoy a better relationship.
