Now is the time for your presence, for your patience, and for your support.

I discovered that vulnerability and transparency, two crucial components of true intimacy, were the biggest challenges.
You know, the reason I started working with couples is because my own relationship failed. We were great together when things were going well, yet we didn’t know how to get through those tough times-when thigs were not going well. Those were the times when we weren’t great together.
