I specialize in relationships. Does your mate cause you to suffer? Is your relationship one of intolerable conflict or quiet desperation? People with such suffering often rush to breakup or divorce. Don't--back away slowly instead. Not only do you waste the chance to save this relationship but also the chance to know yourself better. If you rush out of this relationship, you will repeat these problems.
I love working with couples or individuals where a relationship (or lack of one) is a problem. Over the years, I have helped many couples learn not only to tolerate but also appreciate their differences. I have helped individuals know about themselves as we investigate how they are in relationship.
I believe that your relationship "problems" are your best hope for personal growth. But it requires seeing these "problems" in a new light. I would like to shine a new light on your problems.
