"If you don't do it, it won't get done. You have to double check and remind him constantly to do things he's agreed to do only to be called a "nag" or that you need to "chill out". At this point, you don't even ask, because what's the point? No wonder you aren't ever in the mood for sex. You are exhausted from having to do everything on your own. You feel unappreciated and taken for granted. You are sick of having the same fight over and over. You can't identify how the last fight even started. You think "Maybe I'm asking for too much?""

"The word Sankofa means "one must go back in order to move forward". The idea is that in order to move forward into our highest potential, we must use the best of what was in our past. As a relational therapist who primarily works from a Solution-Focused approach, the word Sankofa reflects my belief that learning from our experiences in the past can contribute to healing in the present and future. I believe we are all capable of change through an effective solution. I have experience bringing about the changes that will lead to a healthier and happier life."

"Therapy offers the possibility for change so that, with the appropriate guidance, an unfulfilled person can become more content. Through therapy, you can more fully discover who you are and what you want: what saddens and excites you and what dictates your unhappy choices in life to modify them with choices that are more satisfying and realistic. Therapy may eventually lead you to a more meaningful life, more enjoyment in work and love, and ultimately give you the ability to come to terms with your limitations, strengths, and surroundings.
