Hi there,

I'm Dr. Sarah Rattray

Founder and CEO of the Couples Communication Institute

Sarah Rattray Ph.D., Couples Psychologist, has spent the last thirty years helping couples create the relationship they always wish they’d had, with the power to make changes that last. She specializes in helping couples communicate safely about what really matters to them, so they feel seen, heard, understood, and supported.

In her career as a private practice Couples Psychologist, she found that as the years went by she was increasingly successful with couples, and increasingly clear about what really made a difference in creating lasting change in relationships. But her ability to help couples was limited by the hours in a week, even as her skills and passion to help grew.

Dr. Sarah was inspired to launch online programs and resources to help motivated couples cultivate loving, clear, connected communication in their relationships.

With expert guidance, practice, and effective tools, couples can shape their relationships themselves, without going to therapy.

She believes that effective communication is at the heart of the holistic interconnection of every part of life within a relationship.

Her mission is to help couples actualize every part of their lives, from their health, to their lifestyles, to their home and environment, so it best serves their relationship, and their relationship best serves their lives. Open, calm, loving, connected communication allows couples to explore every facet of their lives most effectively.

When she’s not working, Dr. Sarah loves Puget Sound views of snow-capped mountains from her home north of Seattle where she raised three incredible children. She has a passion for learning about all things Functional Health, and she loves to dance Argentine Tango when not “social distancing.”
