Gut Punch Moments with Dr. Lee Baucom

In marriage, one of the hardest things is having these gut punch moments where our partner tells us something we aren’t ready for, that can even bring us to question every single thing about the relationship. My guest today helps couples overcome those challenges. 

Lee Baucom, Ph.D. is a 22 year veteran of marriage therapy. His training has been in marriage and family therapy, earning two Master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in the area. He has also completed specialty training in Community Building, as well as in Personal and Life Coaching.

Lee is an experienced facilitator of health and healing for individuals, couples, families, and organizations. This experience has given Lee a different perspective on why couples have problems, and what the solutions are for these problems.

From the beginning, Lee was committed to making relationships work. It is his contention that most relationships are salvageable, and that many take the “easy way out,” rather than finding a workable solution that preserves the relationship, leaving the relationship healthy and individuals happy.

Lee has been happily married for 22 years, and has two children. Lee is devoted to his family, and sees that as inspiration for his own work with families trying to find health.

In addition to family time, in his off-hours, Lee enjoys trail running, mountain biking, and scuba diving. He also pursues flyfishing and is an avid reader with a great deal of curiosity about a number of diverse fields.

What You’ll Learn

7:47 Interview Begins

8:47 My bonus time: Right diagnosis, wrong prognosis

Lee talks about the sports he started taking on after he was diagnosed correctly but they got the prognosis wrong. That led him to work out more and try new sports.

13:18 Raising sons vs. daughters

Lee narrates a funny story about raising multiple kids. He says that he was talking to a professor and he said that the great thing about parenting is that if you let a child do it, he will teach you how to raise him, but the even better thing is that if you have another child, they will teach you that you can’t raise them the same as the first one.

15:44 We is not you and me

Lee tells a story of why WE is much different than YOU and ME. He shares this story about a time that their daughter as a toddler was about to fall into the blades of an air conditioner and he and his wife managed to save her before anything happened, but immediately started to blame each other but quickly realized that that was not going to work. So they decided to work together as a WE, not a you and me deal. . 

20:46 From business to coach

Lee shares how he always thought he would be a business man and the paths that took him to becoming a coach.
