Remember how you used to long for each other? Remember how you used to gaze lovingly into each other's eyes? Love was magical then. What makes those special desires fade? I believe you can keep that love alive! I have done extensive research on love and I am trained to show you how to have healthy romantic love relationships --- at any age!
Some other reasons people come to see me are: Learning to love yourself, enhancing self-esteem, gaining self-confidence and becoming empowered. Feeling good about one's self, gaining control over your life, managing stress, intimacy issues, anger, anxiety, sexuality, chronic illness, grief, infidelity or divorce are all specialties.
