"Suddenly, it seems like you and your partner can't talk to each other. Stretches of time pass when you avoid each other, or try but end up on separate pages. Are you frustrated with your relationship, but uninterested in talking about what is NOT working? Couples therapy is not just about discussing the problems, but making things better too. It's time to get past the blame, guilt and helplessness that has sucked all of the love out of your relationship. Instead, let's work to build the partnership skills that will return you to love and intimacy."

"Being a woman in today’s world is demanding. You’re expected to have it “all” figured out. You’re expected to do it all, and be it all, for everyone around you. It is debilitating and leaves you feeling cheated. There is so little left over for yourself. Before you even realize what has happened, you’ve forgotten who you are outside of these ever-pressing needs and demands. Every now and then you catch a glimmer of the greatness you still feel inside yourself. Fear of failure and worrying about the future leads to stress, worry and anxiety.
