I hear from a lot of parents that their recent graduate or college student is not motivated or that he is just lazy. Does it seem like your child just wants to watch TV and hang out with her friends? Maybe at your kid’s age, you not only had a job and your own house, but were married and had 3 children. So how do you get your “unmotivated graduate” off the couch and on the road to his life?

It’s that time of year again where the stores get filled with red balloons, heart decorations, lover’s cards, gifts, and flowers. February 14th is nationally recognized as “lover’s day,” a relationship day, and day for couples. Some singles despise the day, some couples enjoy the romance-focused day, other people feel overwhelmed, and other people avoid it at all cost.

Money, money, money…the never-ending resource of tension, headaches, and stress for many couples, especially during a recession. Money is no simple topic, and managing the funds can be far from fun. The unexpected bills, the continuous reminders of not having enough money, or the never-ending battle of debt can trigger stress and create distance in a couple’s bond. View Full Article

Dating can be an exciting, endorphin rush of a ride. Does she like me? Will he call me? Desire comes effortlessly with wanting what we don’t yet have and not knowing when the next encounter will be. Dating, though, is also fraught with insecurity. View Full Article

In my private practice as a licensed clinical psychologist, I see the same tragedy on a daily basis. In a nutshell, too many couples are guilty of not having sex. In fact, many of these married men and women don’t even stop and think about the reality – that they’ve basically given it up altogether. These couples simply forgo sex and assign it a relic-status, as if it’s locked inside a moth-eaten attic. If this is you – and you no longer do it with your spouse – it’s time to start doing it again. View Full Article

Relationships are full of ups and down, ins and outs. Some couples get caught on the “down” side and fall into the nasty hole of disconnection, loneliness, and dullness. In many ways, it can feel as if being stuck in a bottom of a ditch; nothing to grab onto to climb out, and the more work to dig your way out, the more dirt falls in. Many couples try to make repair attempts to climb their way out of the deep hole, but the more it barriers them with more issues to work through. Does any of this sound? View Full Article

Ask any happy couple about what keeps the relationship alive and you will most likely hear them say it thrives on healthy communication. Healthy and effective communication can create a shelter for couples where it is easy to open up, safe to be vulnerable, and a shelter to be understood.
