Three Steps for Surviving an Affair

It’s common for people to ask me whether or not their relationship can survive an affair, and my answer is yes. It is entirely possible with these three steps. Step One: Prioritize Your Relationship The first step is a mutual agreement that the relationship is important enough to attempt to heal from the trauma. Consequently, both partners must recognize the role they each played in the breakdown of their relationship. Dr. Harville Hendrix says that in all his work with couples, he has never encountered an affair where only one partner was guilty. He says that, if you look below the...

Goal Attainment: What Would You Have to Give Up?

As this year draws to a close, some of you are already looking ahead to what you want to do in the year ahead. It’s the time of year we begin self-reflection in order to adjust our course for the upcoming year. In my work coaching people, I find it interesting that many of my clients set very clear intentions for what they want to accomplish. They are passionate about it, they put in the required work for a period of time, but then something happens: self-sabotage. Does this sound familiar? Have you ever vowed to lose ten pounds, speak nicer to your children, stop smoking, save money, pay...

Problem with Relationships

When couples decide they want therapy, they often come seeking help for financial, sexual, time management, or parenting issues. They have trouble agreeing on what to save and what to spend; even after finding common ground, couples can find conflict in discussing how to spend and save. Having different expectations for their sex life can lead to disagreements, inattention, and downright frustration that cause challenges in the relationship. Couples argue about how to spend their free time and with whom. Do they spend time together, apart, or a mix of the two? Do they visit her family or his?...

While You Carry the Weight of the World, Who’s Lifting You?

Is your life full of responsibility, having to pick up the slack for those around you? Do you sometimes want to run away from this life? If this describes you, there are some questions to ask yourself: Is everything I’m doing really necessary Just because you can do something doesn’t always mean you should; for some people, doing for others is a habit. Doing things for others can sometimes rob them of the lessons they would learn from doing it themselves. What are you doing for others that they can do for themselves? Could I delegate something to someone else? My mother often said,...

Happy New Year – Relax, Reflect, Rejuvenate, Renovate, Remind

As the world prepares to flip their calendars from 2016 to 2017, how will you prepare? Many people will celebrate by partying long into the night, watching the ball drop on Times Square in NYC, or having a quiet gathering with friends. Others will spend the day like any other day, doing whatever they do in a typical day. Some will make New Year’s resolutions to improve themselves – often in the form of health, diet and exercise. Some people will vow to find love, improve their relationships, save more money . . . whatever they think will bring them happiness. This year, as I am...

Happy Holidays??

The holidays can be a beautiful or a stressful time and sometimes, it can be both. I was talking with my daughter-in-law about all the stress she was experiencing because time was running out and she had more to accomplish before Christmas than time to accomplish it in. This reminded me of a Christmas when I was feeling the exact same way and my sons were teenagers. I remember sitting them down and saying, “Look, there are so many things I want to do before Christmas and I don’t have enough time to do it all. So I either need you to help me or tell me what you don’t care...
