"Life's not going how you want? When I first went into therapy, I thought I was going to find out terrible things about myself. What I discovered was that I was simply a human being. I mention this so you will know that working with me is not a blame game but an exploration of what is working well in your life, and what is not. Then together we develop strategies for you to create the life you want."

"They say you are lucky, you have such a wonderful husband. They do not know how hard it is to pretend. You struggle to connect and you feel so lonely in your relationship. You keep fighting over little things and the shouting match is draining. You are tired and angry. You do not want to be blamed, dismissed. You do not wish to take the role of peacemaker. The word "D" has come up for quite a while now but you are willing to try therapy, to try save your relationship and get back to the good old days."
