With wisdom and compassion, they blend psychology, holistic health and spiritual enhancement.

Jim is a licensed psychologist, Ruth serves as a licensed professional counselor and yoga teacher. They are both expert relationship coaches, as well as meditation and healing guides. Their latest of four books, Secrets of a Soulful Marriage: Creating and Sustaining A Loving, Sacred Relationship is a springboard for national coaching, speaking, retreats and online courses.

How it began

Jim and Ruth Sharon opened a private counseling practice and holistic health center in 1976. Later, in addition to counseling, they established The AFDA Group, Inc. in 1989 to offer consulting and training in peaceful conflict resolution. Based on Ruth’s original AFDA Model, they guided people from all walks of life to heal relationships and carve new paths for their lives. Energy for Life emerged from The AFDA Group, Inc. in 2006 to reflect the Sharons’ focus on overall well-being and healthy relationships. They are “Warriors for Love,”  devoted to elevating love to higher vibrations to serve more people.

Married since 1970, the Sharons reside in Centennial, CO, a suburb of Denver, where they raised three adult children and have two grandchildren.
