“D/s is your relationship orientation, not a lifestyle. D/s is different than other relationship types. So many people get hurt because they don’t realize that D/s education is important. You deserve to be loved
As who you truly are. Prioritize your D/s relationship education.”
– Chris

Chris M. Lyon, BCH, CC.


For over 23 years, Chris has helped people recover from past relationships; find new, healthy, bonded relationships; and has often been the successful last resort as a facilitator for relationships in crisis.

Chris is a long-time educator, author, and expert on relationships with the D/s dynamic (commonly known as Dominant and submissive – two equal individuals within a hierarchy).

She wrote the book on foundational, holistic D/s relationships: Leading and Supportive Love: The Truth About Dominant and Submissive Relationships.

She is a long-time member of KAP (Kink Aware Professionals)

She heads the Facebook group that supports and educates on foundational Dominant and Submissive Relationships. This community welcomes singles, couples, and those who are vanilla or kink-oriented. No matter what your lifestyle, as a D/s partner, you can find a safe space in our community.

She also created the D/s Relationships Masterclass Collection, a robust collection of education that helps D/s partners who are in relationships or single.

Chris has lived the D/s dynamic all of her adult life and has helped clients, both individuals and couples, at all stages of their relationships for nearly 20 years. She’s worked with people from all walks of life, including title-holders, lifestyle leaders, and clinicians, and continues to have a passion for awareness, acceptance, and education for this powerful, beautiful relationship orientation.

Chris is a Personal, Relationship and Leadership Coach and Consultant.

“…It’s like grad school for PTSD and narcissist trauma survivors. My focus is on healthy relationships, boundaries and communication. She is the author of the book I have been talking about. I want you to know that I have applied what she has taught me in my communication with everyone. My inner circle has commented. My Mother has commented. I am seeing a different reaction from the people I love when I speak.”


“Chris is an amazing person with so much understanding and empathy. I truly believe she saved my “doomed” marriage. She gave me the tools my husband and I needed to find success in our relationship. I consider it a miracle that I landed on her website and found the courage to call her. I tried a few different therapists and she was the only one with real advice and encouragement. Thank you Chris for being here for my husband and I when we needed it most.”


“I came to Chris in need of help to get all aspects of my life back on track. With Chris I got the inspiration and structure to help myself – I think that is what we all really want. The direction and confidence I gained with Chris is truly priceless! You get ideas and techniques that are very doable and not unimaginable.”

“When it rains it pours, well in my life it did. Death of a family member, lost a relationship and my job all within a very short time. My life felt completely out of control and lost. Thankfully Chris was able to help me see a whole new world for myself. Her diverse modalities and insightful ways of having you look at the real picture are just incredible. I was able to break old habits that I wasn’t even aware that I was doing and create new opportunities in my life. THANKS Chris you’re awesome.”

(eBook, in PDF format)

A must-read for anyone who is a D/s partner in their committed relationship, no matter what your experience or lifestyle.

“I could not put this book down…I felt like the author pulled all my questions out of my head, put them on paper, and gave the most thorough of answers. An absolute revelation.”


“Finally, a book that looks at this topic from a non-kink perspective. Power dynamics are in play in all relationships and some folks are happiest when the roles are clearly defined. This book shines the light on that fact and “normalizes” it.”
