About six months ago, I decided to go 'all in' on my couples work. While I was creating my new website, Jon Leland, my consultant, asked me how long I wanted to keep my old website, which advertised my work with people in recovery, and with individuals. When I hesitated, he said, "Well, you want to focus on couples, so let's close it down."
It took a while, but that moment was a birth and a death. A birth of my commitment to A Path for Couples, and a death of the other kinds of therapy work I was used to doing. I felt excited, almost liberated.
The comments of my students who have taken the class have made this decision worthwhile: "The work has changed our lives." "I felt like I did when I first met her. The magic is back." "We can change conflict into moments of understanding."
