Message from Linda: “Couples Counseling works! I know. I’ve been a couple’s therapist for over 20 years! You know and I know the quality of a relationship effects one’s wellbeing in every way – even the life span. Whether it is an affair, poor communication, sexual concerns, or someone has just fallen out of love, give it a chance by trying couples therapy. Most of the time you have more to gain than to lose! It’s never too late. Call me so we can talk about it over the phone first. If your partner is unwilling to come, call me anyway and we can talk about how best to proceed.”
