Should I Go or should I Stay?

ImageIs your marriage or relationship worth saving or is it time to call it quits and move on?  This is such a big question with no one size fits all answer.  As a marriage and family therapist and a relationship coach my preference is to make marriages work.  Generally if both individuals are fully committed to the relationship I can assist them in increasing the quality of their relationship and making it work in a way that both people feel loved, respected and are able to be fully themselves.

Over the years I have also become a realist.  Not all relationships can or should continue.  I taught divorce recovery classes for over six years and know that the break up or divorce is no guarantee of a happy ever after either.

My goal is to assist individuals and couples in thriving whether in or out of a relationship.

I cannot make the decision to go or stay for you.  In many cases my suggestion is to do what it takes to make the relationship work including individual or couples counseling or coaching before calling it quits so there will be no regrets.  However some hang on too long, staying in a relationships that is clearly over.

You deserve to be happy, to love the life you are living.  To thrive whether or not you are in a relationship.  Give me a call and I’d be glad to support you in coming to the decision that is right for you.
