heyritual quote

I got a new job in another state, when we tried getting professional help it turned out to be super complicated with schedules and regulation. Ritual’s model definitely simplified things for us.

Rachel, 35

Joined Ritual with her partner of two years to learn how to fight constructively

heyritual quote

For years we’ve had this recurring fight. Tonight when it came up, we took a step back and rewatched the video together. It changed EVERYTHING! Turned an old argument into a good conversation.

Veronica, 35

Joined with her husband of 10 years to heal from an affair and resolve conflicts

heyritual quote

The pain and shame I’d feel each time I got jealous was too intense to talk about with my girlfriend. Having the option to do relationship work on my own changed everything.

Jessie, 27

Joined individually to work on recurring trust issues with their partner of 3 years

heyritual quote

I thought he’d be a different kind of father and the disappointment really affected our connection. Ritual helped me see his side of the story without turning my back on myself.

Taylor, 40

Joined with his husband of 6 years after the birth of their twins

Everyone kept telling me I should leave, It felt so lonely. Our expert Naomi helped us realize what the infidelity meant for us with zero judgment. Thank you!

Michelle, 45

Joined with her husband of 13 years after an affair to create honest interactions

heyritual quote

We needed some help getting important messages across but we really didn’t want to feel judged for our lifestyle. Finding something as private as this has been a true blessing.

Maria, 27

Joined with her long-distance girlfriend of 2 years to improve communication

heyritual quote

My husband would never have gone to a traditional therapist. With Ritual, he feels comfortable, he can do things on his own terms.

Nia, 32

Joined individually, her husband joined later to work on closeness discrepancies

heyritual quote

The shame I felt for what happened made me act in ways that only made the distance worse. I didn’t believe an online program could make a difference, but it did.

River, 28

Joined with his wife as newlyweds, to get over a crisis that altered their connection
