Why do we hurt the ones we love?
Why does passion fade in long-term relationships? How do we bring it back?
Why do we feel like we're walking on eggshells? How do we learn to communicate honestly?
Why do we feel so much resentment? How do we become more capable of love?
I am a father of four, a military veteran, and a devoted husband of 21 years. I love music, gardening, travel, and the great outdoors. My approach builds on the work of David Schnarch, Ellyn Bader, and Jennifer Finlayson-Fife.
