We're AisleTalk, expectation vs. reality is our specialty.
We meet people at points in time when they recognize that the hopeful picture of their life they’ve held in their minds isn’t matching their reality. They don’t feel the way that they want to feel; they aren’t connecting with others the way they want to connect. Their vision for their life has gotten blurry or veered off course.
We often apply this work to individuals and couples who are getting married. This moment in time exists with, perhaps, the most expectation-laden picture of what life “should” look like. We’re sold the story that engagements and weddings are all sex and champagne, when in fact, it’s a time when we’re contending with layered issues of identity, of social pressure, of family dynamics. It’s stressful as hell, and we’re here for it.
