“PT” for your Relationship

“PT” for your Relationship: Using the model of Physical Therapy for strong, resilient connections!

WHOLE SYSTEM RESET

WHOLE SYSTEM RESET: Get inspired and committed!

Shadow Work in Relationship: exposing what’s hidden

My first taste of Shadow Work in Relationship… “You are just so negative.” I couldn’t believe it when I heard these words coming out of a past partner’s mouth.  I never thought of myself as a negative person, and my first response was, “Me, negative?  No, I’m not!”  Now, I have always been someone who […]
