Joe Whitcomb brings more than 20 years of relevant experience to his work as a relationship coach and therapist. With a focus on helping couples connect and communicate at deeper levels, Joe provides effective tools for putting the fun and excitement back into relationships using his proven multidisciplinary approach. Joe earned a B.S. in Psychology with an emphasis in Neuroscience from the University of Maryland College Park. He holds a M.A. in Clinical Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University and a Doctoral Candidate in Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
Joe’s understanding of the complex nuances presented in modern relationships makes him a respected expert on personal development and interpersonal relationships. Building on his belief that everyone is entitled to the power and freedom that come from a healthy relationship, Joe delivers a customized program filled with techniques that couples can use for the rest of their lives. By combining his formal education with his real world experiences, Joe guides couples through his signature E3 process, which is Experiential, Empowering, and Entertaining. Expanding beyond traditional methods, Joe assists clients facing a variety of challenges including infidelity, communication blocks, blended families, empty nest syndrome, and more.
Couples work with Joe to honestly assess their relationship and learn new behaviors and techniques for relating to each other. After helping more than 2,000 couples navigate their relationship challenges, Joe wanted to find a way to support even more people who want to experience the joy of authentic, loving relationships. His vision came alive when he created The Relationship Society, a progressive community designed to address the loss of social capital and relational connectedness in today’s society. As a safe space for successful individuals to find relationship strategies and resources, The Relationship Society is a premier collective of subject matter experts and thought leaders assisting members with their personal and relational growth. The Relationship Society’s flagship seminars include the WE2 and WE3 programs which are multiple day intensives for couples who want to experience more intimacy and address any challenges in their relationships. Couples consistently report enjoying more intimacy and better communication after experiencing these events.
A lifelong learner and lover of adventure, Joe enjoys spending time with his children and granddaughter and also finds time for sky diving, dancing, and cycling.
