Likely you’ve stumbled upon this blog because you are looking for answers about this thing we call love. It is complicated, elusive, and tricky while also being one of the biggest sources of happiness and joy when we can find it and do it right. You’re on your path for answers and that path has led you here. Thank you for including me as part of your journey and trusting me to be on this path with you along the way. Everyone we know is stumbling through love doing the best they can on any given day to be a better partner or just to be a better person, period. I’m no different. I am not going to claim to be a love expert (what does that even mean anyways?). I’ve seen firsthand being in therapy myself how beneficial it is to have another person help you see things in a different light, get really clear about what’s working and not working, and learn about the things you really want and need. I am here to do the same for you.
So…what is this blog about and why should you stay tuned for what’s to come? I want reading this blog to make you think and question and wonder – specifically about why and how you are where you’re at right now in this moment without any judgement of yourself. As you read future blog posts, my number one goal is that you will have new realizations come to you. I can’t stand those articles that say “10 signs he’s not into you” or “5 reasons you’re not getting a second date.” Those articles don’t tell you what to do if in fact he isn’t into you or if you’re calling that girl to go on a second date and she’s not calling you back – then what? I want to make sure you get the “then what?” answers from this blog. I’m here to bring what I know personally and professionally to you to provide direction and answers. You won’t hear me say, “Do x, y, and z and then tada! Here comes happily ever after!” But what you might hear me say is “Give x a try and see how it goes. If that’s working for you, do more of it. And have you thought about y? Think about y and consider if it fits for you. Oh, and z could be another good option if you want to try that too.” Love is not straightforward, nor is it easy. Anyone telling you differently is misguided. This blog will hopefully help you gain new insight and give you ideas of what else to try that maybe you haven’t yet (and if I get you to laugh along the way or nod your head saying, “That is definitely me”, then I know for sure I’m doing my job right!).
