It's crazy to think about how I have lived so long without the basic, incredibly valuable tools that Bob was able to teach me in just a few weeks. Understanding the "fear dance" has been particularly eye opening for me. Bob, your teachings have changed my marriage and my business both in incredible ways. Your time has been one of my greatest blessings, my loved ones seem to agree! Thanks again for everything, I only wish there were more people like you!

Bob has all the right stuff when it comes to coaching. I recommend him to anyone who is interested in relationship coaching in the Virginia area. He gives you the tools and the ways to communicate. And they work.

My fiance and I did our pre-marriage counseling session with Mr. Ruthazer before we got married. I'm very happy that we did. The strategies we learned helped us set relationship goals, work through tough conversations, and prioritize our personal time. I would definitely recommend Mr. Ruthazer to family and friends.

Bob taught us usable, simple, and effective tools to strengthen our communication and conflict resolution skills. Our marriage greatly benefited from working with Bob and we recommend him to any couple looking to improve their relationship!

Bit late on this review, but my wife and I went to Bob for "pre-marital counseling," though we were already married... We ran out of time before the wedding but started going within a month of our actual wedding. I say we were looking for counseling, but "coaching" really is what we were after and what was provided. Bob was great and helped guide us through typical potential marriage issues/hiccups, as well as helping engage us to discuss marriage-related things we hadn't previously even thought of. It was a great way for us to get on the same page regarding our attitudes and beliefs towards a variety of topics including parenting, family, financials, etc. Bob is a very smart, funny, and helpful person and he incorporated bits of his own personal marital stories and issues to help show how to apply different techniques--making the coaching more relatable. I would highly recommend his service to couples as a form of pre-marital (or post) coaching. Thanks for all of your help!

Bob is a great coach, and the tools he has given us will be invaluable in the future.

Bob and Diane saved our marriage... the difference between coaching and therapist is a coach will give you the tools and techniques to help fix the problems together... they won't take side and in fact while you are in session Bob encouraged you to speak to your spouse--not him--when confronting challenges.
Additionally, the tools we learned have also applied to our children. Specifically, we are teaching them to solve their own problems WITH each other in a way that is constructive.
I will not tell you the process is easy--in fact, I think it gets worse before it gets better because you will not only tackle what's in front of you but past hurts and mistakes. In other words, you might draw up painful moments that makes the sessions and homework tough... on the positive side, once it is behind you and forgiven, it's behind you.
Thank you Bob and Diane for not giving up on us. When they say they will be the last person to give up--they mean it!

Bob was referred to us as one of the best relationship and premarital coaches in the area, and he is! Bob and his wife, Diane, are wonderful mentors for a loving and understanding marriage. They gave us the tools to strengthen our relationship now and for years to come.

If you want your marriage to be the best it can be, call Bob Ruthazer. He widely considered the best marriage coach in the Richmond area. I work with couples and when they are a better fit somewhere else due to location, etc, Bob is always first on my list to call. He is also a fantastic facilitator when it comes to teaching couples counseling to other professionals.

The Coaching technique was VERY EFFECTIVE in helping us with conflict resolution and to "understand' each other after struggling for a long time. This will help us have a long and happy marriage. Bob & Dianne were exceptional coaches.
