I Believe

Nothing is more important than having a relationship that is fulfilling, close, and connected. A relationship is vital to your happiness and satisfaction in your life.

About Stuart Fensterheim

I want to help you and your partner rekindle a happy, fulfilling relationship. When it comes to working with couples, I take an approach that gets to the heart of the issues not merely addressing the surface issues. Those without this knowledge will often focus on what brings couples into the counseling and the presenting issues: How can we get out of the fight we’re in?  When will we start to have sex again?  How can we get along about our kids? Finances? Jobs?

The problem with only focusing on the “how” is that it doesn’t address why you’re in this predicament in the first place. I want to help you get out of this field of land mines once and for all.  That’s where my approach comes into play.  I believe understanding the emotions underlying the issues is THE KEY to healing your relationship. When this occurs, the two of you really feel that your relationship has significance. I would like to help you with this.  These same things are also true for families struggling with their relationships.

Do yourself a favor, call Stuart– you won’t regret it.” ~ Barbara, Prescott Valley
