The Importance of Having Friends

Friday, April 28th, 2006

A colleague Julie and I were discussing how we spend our spare time the other day, and in the midst of this conversation I came to the realization that the girl I was talking to had very few friends. In times of crisis when she needed someone to turn to, I was her sounding board, offering […]

Letting the Anger Out

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

One of the recurring themes through submissions I receive from clients is the anger couples feel towards each other. Some couples feel pure unadulterated hatred, some feel hurt and have a wish for revenge, and others feel frustration at the state of their marriage. What started as fresh-faced enthusiasm and lust has ended up in frustration, lack of communication, and mutual […]

Communication Breakdown

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

It happens to the best of us. Communication is such a fickle thing, and the lines of communication can become blurred every so often, especially when feelings are involved.

This is especially true when I read an article about couples that spend extended periods of time away from each other, often separated by more than just a few miles. What I’m […]

What Has Become Of Her?

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

I recently read an article in my local newspaper about Dr Laura, a blonde conservative radio host and agony aunt who at one time had the second most popular radio show in America. Apparently her particular brand of moral philosophy on parenting, families, and topical societal issues has caused quite a following. Equally however, her forthright […]

What Is It About Apathy?

Thursday, April 13th, 2006

I’m continually astounded at the lengths couples go to in their quest to hurt each other. Most of the people who are looking through this blog are thankfully committed on some level to changing their patterns of behavior, but in thinking about the number of people who contact me in times of crisis, it leads me […]
