MMP #21 Partnership as a Vehicle for Transformation with Alexandra Stockwell

Alexandra Stockwell, MD is a Physician turned Relationship and Intimacy Expert who is known as The Relationship Catalyst. As a wife of 23 years and a mother of four, she believes the key to passion, fulfillment, intimacy and success in a couple’s relationship isn’t compromise–it’s being unwilling to compromise–because when both people feel free to be themselves, and know how to love and be loved for exactly who they are, the relationship is juicy, nourishing, and deeply satisfying.

For over 20 years, she has shown men and women how to bring pleasure and purpose into all aspects of life–from the daily grind of running a household, to successfully growing a business, to creating ecstatic experiences in the bedroom!  Alexandra helps build connected and happy families through facilitating healing and transformation for couples.
