When you hire a relationship coach or a marriage therapist to help you resolve difficulties in your relationship, sometimes it doesn’t work. Why is this?

Did you really just say that to me?

I never thought I would be one of those people who said, “Unless you have been through it, you don’t understand it.” Yet, here I am, saying this very thing.

Is Hope Keeping You Stuck in Bad Dating Patterns?

I have worked with too many singles who are so eager to be in a relationship that they do not take the time to understand what it takes to make a relationship last. Even worse, it pains me to hear my own friends say, “I just want to be in the middle of the relationship; I don’t want to wait.” Then they proceed to tell me, often with a sad expression, how they have met a man and have already begun a Read the rest of this entry »
