FROM OUR EXPERTS

With all of the advancements in technology, abusive relationships are becoming harder to protect yourself from. Be sure to use and change passwords on all of your devices, and be careful who you share your technology with.
Popular psychologist Joyce Brothers died at age 85 on Monday, May 13. She had staying power because of her enduring wisdom. That's why I want to share three of her quotes about love that have had impact on my work as a therapist.
Is your child in therapy? Has a therapist suggested that you and your spouse take parenting classes ... but one of you refuses to participate? If so, help is on the way.
You’ve worn out your friends, your parents just give you unwanted advice, and you’ve decided it’s finally time to see a therapist. Good for you. Therapy will most likely help you. Significant research has been done that demonstrates that therapy helps most people. But no one tells you how to pick a therapist.
Our relationships are probably the most important aspect of our life. As a relationship expert, I tell people that I specialize in relationship to others and yourself. It's my belief that the two very much go together. Clearly, whether it's concerning yourself or others, there are times when things are difficult, confusing or complicated. Fortunately, in today's world, there's a great deal of information that is available to folks. Wonderful sites such as this one, books, CDs, etc.
Every now and again you come across a situation in your life that blows your hair back, your skirt up or...just blows. For example: you find out the person you're seriously considering spending the rest of your life with isn't interested in a long-term relationship with you. Or you discover one evening, quite by accident, that your husband prefers blondes...who are hung like a horse.
Bad therapists happen. It is a fact. There is no screen in grad school that weeds out the therapists that shouldn't be therapists. Now, if you don't like your therapist - that can happen and in fact can at times be normal. I believe that when you enter my office, we engage in a dance, a dance that you have done over and over. My job is to help you see the dance steps that aren't working for you, that keep you from the life you want to live. But, that means, I have to learn to dance with you.
