What Are We Women To Do?

Jane comes into my office and tells me she dated a lot before she met her husband. She thought FOR SURE he was different, but low and behold, she has the same issues with him! So she has read and read and talked to her friends and her mother and sister and the woman setting next to her on the bus.

Now, I’ll bet her husband didn’t talk to all those people and read a lot of books. What do you think?

That is why this is for women. Women are the ones that are doing the work (mostly) to make relationships work.

It’s true, may not be fair, but that’s the way it is. You can whine and gripe about it, but here is the good news:

You really can make a difference in your dating and relationships. I know you’re worried that you won’t have a healthy relationship. You can’t figure out what’s going on. But, if you change what YOU are doing, it WILL change your relationships.

This is for you:

  • If you are tired of arguing about the same old things.
  • If you want to know exactly WHY these arguments are happening.
  • If you’re having the same problems in your dating relationships. (It seems like you’re dating the same guy!)
  • If you want to know What you need to do NOW to change things.
  • If you want to know your NEXT steps for a better relationship and dating experience.
  • If you want to know how to have fun dating and/or relating in your relationship.

I CAN HELP YOU With That.

In fact, I”m going to give lots of tips, homework, and tell you exactly what you need to do to change things:)

So if you’re tired and frustrated and don’t know what to do next to increase the possibility of having a good, committed relationship, then keep reading:)

I have worked face to face with 1,000′s of people as a Licensed therapists for 41 years. I’ve walked women through their relationship and dating problems and have seen them change. They stop doing the same things and have learned HOW to have a healthy relationship. And they’ve gotten MORE of what they wanted:) ( I’m not a miracles worker:)

I will size up your behaviors quickly, tell you what you need to change in a way that is non threatening, and guide you to make the changes you need.  VERY quickly. When you’ve been doing this as long as I have, I can tell you straight up what needs to change.

Sometimes people just need a quick way to turn things around so they don’t feel desperate and lost. Knowledge IS Power.

If you’re tired of the same old problems in your relationships, come on in and lets see what we can do to change it.

This is therapy OR coaching for you and your relationship issues, and we work pretty fast. 

We’ll talk some about your childhood, but not a whole lot.

If you want to know exactly what to change so you can stop feeling confused and blaming yourself, then this really is the best option out there.

I’ll explain how you need to change what you’re doing, in a down to earth, easy to understand way so you can leave with clear guideline on how to move forward. This is Based on YOUR needs, not general theory.

People have the same arguments over and over. The same dating experiences over and over. It hurts to not understand what’s going on, it feels like you’re just stuck and just at your wits end. You hate the frustration and worry and hurt. You don’t have to be stuck, you can SEE what is going on and what you need to do to change it. Most of us just don’t know how the heck to do it.

When you get clear about why you have these same arguments over and over: how to do things differently, you feel powerful and more confident and more peaceful about it. Then you can do YOUR part with power and confidence. With wisdom in your back pocket.

Let’s just start doing relationships the right way, the way that will actually WORK. For us and for powerful role models for the girls in our lives. It will of course help the boys too!

I am only able to take a few people at this time. If you’re interested, just e-mail me, We’ll have a shot phone chat to see if we are a good match. I get back to you usually the same day.

Hope to talk soon and help you get unstuck.
