However, like all the other things we know we need to maintain (from our personal health to routine maintenance on cars), a little effort up front goes a long way. Whether you […]
Separation, divorce, break ups…they are horrible. Painful, full of good-byes to all that was precious, or expected to be, in an intimate relationship. And like all humans, pain often makes even the best parents a little self-centered and short-sighted. As hard as it is for you to say good-bye to what you dreamed could be […]

In the safe, contained environment provided by a Certified Imago Therapist, couples can […]
I love CEU classes for therapists. Really, I am not being sarcastic… sure, there’s a few duds out there, but for the most part, I am always glad I attended a class.
