About The Guest
Talia & Allen Wagner
Couples Counselors/ Relationship Experts
Talia and Allen Wagner met at Pepperdine University, where they were both pursuing advanced degrees in psychology. Not only were they neighbors in the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, but they shared a love for travel. A friendship was formed, which, over time, evolved into love, marriage, children, and a shared practice as marriage and family therapists in LA. It was hardly smooth sailing. It didn’t take long for them to realize that they didn’t really know how to be married, that they were basically winging it, not always successfully.
Through the years, it is a reality that has been mirrored back to them from many couples they’ve seen. No one taught them how to be married, to fight fairly, to avoid falling into resentment traps, or to keep the romance alive when sometimes you can barely stand each other. Seeing the great need in today’s modern marriages for better tools to understand and work together, this marriage and family therapist duo have been guiding couples to success around the world for years. Their focus is on providing practical real life tools to improve communication, connection and togetherness.
