When Mean Girls & Boys Become Mean Adults

My client found it unbelievable.  "Here I am 37 years old,  a wife, a mom, a nurse valued by patients and staff, and I am hurt -- no, correct that, devastated -- by a supposed friend and her group of friends."   My client went on to explain that after an extended illness she was invited by a friend to attend a spa three-day "weekend" with a group who had been to the spa before.  She realized for her own health she would leave the spa early, and called for an appointment.  "I had no idea I would be intruding," my client explained, and then went on to describe an unkind and thoughtless pattern of behavior:  On their first day the group arranged an initial lunch for all, leaving her out of the conversation entirely, totally ignoring any of her attempts to join group conversation.

Whether you’ve been in a relationship for 20 years or have been seeing somebody for 2 months, this lack of chemistry can really take a toll.  It’s all too common that we become tongue-tied when discussing sex with our partner.  We may be afraid of hurting our partner’s ego or cr

How To Know It's Time To Breakup

When problems hit, friction develops, and drama ensues, does it warrant a break-up?  How do you know when you've found the right person?  What is the difference between issues that break the deal, are unworkable and promise to keep coming up, versus issues to work through together, and resolve?  Where is the line between insanity and persistence?

Domestic Violence & Abuse

I decided to write about an extremely important issue that effects many relationships and can help you identify if you’re in an abusive relationship. I’ve worked with several individuals that report their partner having a “temper problem.” Usually when I hear this description, I know there is likely more to the picture.
