Shaping Your Mate

By Bob Grant, L.P.C. Some years ago, while building my counseling practice, I was constantly looking for the most effective strategies for my clients. The theories in Graduate School were very interesting, but I also yearned for the practical applications. Something they could take home with them. Particularly with couples. By the time they came into my office they were usually at their wits end. Before we could explore the depth of their conflict and pain I needed something which would giv

Sailing

Excerpted from The Carrot and the Mule By Joseph Foti, Esq. The icy December rain pelted my eyes as I tried to keep my 500 foot yacht from slamming into the jagged Nantucket rocks. Despite my efforts, the howling night winds, raging sea, and dense fog made steering almost impossible. This was by far the worst storm I had encountered in thirteen years of sailing. Standing at the helm, forced to endure Maurice's mocking glances, I watched helplessly as twenty foot waves c

Excerpted from Opening to Love 365 Days a Year By Judith Sherven, Ph.D., James Sniechowski, Ph. D. Apologies What's the big deal about apologizing?

Maintaining A Strong Relationship

By Margarita Nahapetyan Every relationship is unique, complex and multi-dimensional, and every person has his own way of understanding and feeling if a relationship is or is not right for him.

Long Distance Relationships Can Actually End Up In Marriage

By Margarita Nahapetyan It has been universally acknowledged that having a long distance relationship is not such a good idea, especially if there is no known end-date to the separation.

Excerpted from Living in the Comfort Zone; The Gift of Boundaries in Relationships By Rokelle Lerner Few of us in our western culture know where our comfort zone is. Indeed, what it is probably provokes some confusion. We are raised to live the American Way, the way of the warrior, the pioneer, the manifest entrepreneur. This has served us well for centuries!

Infidelity

By Margarita Nahapetyan Cheating on a partner is a terrible thing to do. Especially if the other part finds out about the infidelity, it can become a real catastrophe for any relationship. The betrayed part starts wondering what to do after, whether she/he should stay or go, or ask another part to leave.
