Who are we? 

When relationships form between two people, a separate and unique entity is created, called the “couple personality”. This union of two individuals into something greater is also called, “synergy”. It is this synergy in a relationship that provides the excitement and passion a couple feels when they first come together.


Over time, however, this synergy can stop growing, especially when time and energy are not dedicated to the relationship. External influences and obligations can further erode this synergy causing a disconnect within the “couple personality”.


The Couples Synergy Program, developed by “power couple”, Dr. Ray and Rev. Jean Kadkhodaian, teach couples how to re-energize and improve the synergy within their relationship. It provides the tools and guidance needed to bring back the excitement and passion the couple once felt for each other.
