Why are relationships so hard????
We all want to love and be loved, right? So what gets in the way of us finding our bliss?
This is not an easy question to answer, but here are some insights.
It takes all of a person--every last nook and cranny to relate to every last nook and cranny of another person while in the
maelstrom of living life. Stress, challenges in schedules, other relationships that relate to the couple, financial stressors,
differences in values, communications styles, gender role ideals, and needs that have been unmet or undermet over a
lifetime--all of these things can get seriously in the way of our happiness together.
The good news is they don't have to destroy a wonderful conncection.

Couples therapy is a wonderful, safe place to start this lifetime journey together.
Be Well--Be Loved.
