Meet Dr. Lynda Spann, a lesbian with a PhD in marriage and family counseling…

Lynda Spann is the founder of the Lesbian Couples Institute based out of Denver, Colorado.

We all know that lesbian dating is hard. So once we finally find love, we want to make sure that we do everything we can to build the best possible relationship with our partner.

Building epic lesbian relationships...

What’s the best way for lesbians to build a great relationship, and what kinds of challenges can we expect to run into?

Obviously lots of relationship advice is universally applicable, and it doesn’t matter if you’re in a same-sex relationship or a heterosexual one. But it can’t be denied that the lived experience of being a lesbian in love with another woman does have unique differences. And who better to talk about this with than a marriage and family therapist who also happens to be a lesbian herself?

That’s why I was so excited to interview Dr. Lynda Spann.

In this episode Lynda Spann and I discuss:

  • the biggest challenges lesbian couples face in their relationships…
  • the greatest benefits of being a same-sex female couple…
  • tips for how to navigate communication issues with your partner… and
  • how to find the balance between growing together as a couple versus growing individually and authentically as a woman…

This is an episode you don’t want to miss.
