At Agapé we believe that love is everything. It’s the foundation of all things good in humanity, the catalyst for societal progress, and the nucleus of human desire. That's why we've created a relationship wellness app that makes it easy for couples to feel and show love. Couples start their day with a question to spark meaningful conversation and end their day with a guided relaxation to grow closer.
Our team is based in New York and we are proud of our diversity. Diverse teams create better outcomes and our team is diverse across age, gender, race, and sexuality.

Ron is a clinical relationship psychologist at the University of Rochester who served 2 tours in Iraq and has over 20 years of experience. With more than 75 publications, Ron is top 20 in his field. One of his most notable achievements is the development of the PAIR program.
PAIR is a program that helps couples to cultivate greater mindfulness in their relationships in a manner that perfectly aligns with the principles of Agapé. When tested in newlywed couples, the PAIR program cut the divorce rate in half over the early years of marriage. By incorporating the findings from his research, Ron is making sure Agapé is as effective as it is fun.
