WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
In our work with couples, we have found an ever-important question: how do you as a couple manage your disappointment?
Some couples either give up and settle for finding (mostly unhealthy) ways to tolerate an unsatisfying relationship or end the relationship prematurely. Unfortunately, avoiding resolving the problems couples face only makes things worse. This is very much like not caring for a wound. Ignoring a wound can result in infection and more damage. Having the courage, humility, and focused commitment to fixing what’s wrong is what it takes to get past the current roadblock and on to a happier and more fulfilling life and relationship
We want to help those who have run into unexpected roadblocks which prevents them from enjoying their relationships. If you are one of those folks, we hope you don’t feel embarrassed by the relationship challenges you are facing. Every relationship experiences some form of disillusionment and difficulties. You are not alone. As unsettling as your relationship challenges may seem, they are not unusual and
THERE IS HOPE.

“Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words 'forever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.” Marian Keyes
