Welcome To The Latest Issue Of Relationships Matter!

August, September and October Edition

Welcome to the latest issue of Happy Relationships Matter!

Here’s your Happy Relationships newsletter for late summer and early fall . . . in this issue you’ll find tips on how to fix relationship problems, enhance your mental health and live a longer, happier life.

And I have news . . .

EXCITING NEWS! I have just opened a new therapy office in the central Kentucky area. If you are in need of therapy or counseling, and you live in Kentucky, please go to my website to learn more about my services.

My new office is located in the Hamburg area of Lexington, Kentucky, and is very easy to get to. It is located near I-75 and I-64, and is close to all parts of the city.

I am accepting new clients for individual, couple or family sessions.


The Relationship Satisfaction Quiz has been a popular item lately, so I am writing about it again in this issue. I guess most people like getting some objective feedback about their most important relationships. If you haven’t already taken the quiz . . .

this quick quiz will help you to evaluate the effectiveness of your relationship, and determine how well it’s working for you. It’ll only take a few minutes. Ask your relationship partner to take it, too. Or a friend or family member.

And taking the quiz will assist you in pinpointing areas in need of attention in your marriage or relationship.

RELATIONSHIP MYTHS: Common Relationship Myths And Misconceptions

1. Myth: Conflict will ruin a relationship.

Not so. Everyone experiences conflict. The closer the relationship the more likely you'll encounter conflict. It's just a part of life. The key is deal with conflict, and to do so in a win-win fashion.

2. Myth: Avoiding conflict will ruin a relationship.

Nope! The truth is, sometimes it’s best to avoid conflict. And for some people, avoidance works better than for others. A policy of strict honesty is not best for all marriages.

3. Myth: The way you save your relationship is to be more sensitive, and communicate in a more sensitive way.

Too many therapists try to teach couples how to communicate like a therapist. The truth is, it doesn't really work. Being sensitive is good, but how will it save your relationship? You can be sensitive all you like, but the problems will still be there.

4. Myth: Infidelity causes most divorces and relationship break-ups.

The truth is, while affairs can be devastating, there are many reasons relationships fail, and most couples say an affair did not cause their divorce.

5. Happy marriages are free from disagreement. Happy couples can have conflict and fight over any number of issues, such as money and sex. The key is they are able to get over the conflict quickly and move on to better things. How quickly a couple recovers means so much! The quicker the better.

6. Myths: Lavish gifts create great romance and secure your partner’s loyalty.

The truth is, it’s the little things that contribute to romance. It’s the day-to-day conversation, the way a couple shares time together and the depth of their friendship that leads to passion and romance. Lavish gifts are too often used as a desperate attempt to fix something that has gone wrong.

Apply the Golden Rule if you want to have a great relationship. Treat your partner the way you want to be treated. And avoid taking short cuts. Roll out the red carpet. Your partner will do the same for you.


As I said earlier, I have opened a new private practice in the central Kentucky area, and you’ll soon be able to book appointments on line 24 hours a day. I am working with children and adults, couples and families.

Also, I’ll be accepting coaching clients locally. We can meet at my office or a local coffee shop, whichever you prefer.

Therapy services offered will include individual, couple and family services, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, stress management, trauma work, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, Alzheimer's Disease, ADD and ADHD, counseling for children and teenagers, and a host of other services.

I’ll be accepting most types of insurance, credit card and Paypal payments. Please go to my site often to keep abreast of my progress in getting the new office set up.


I WILL SOON BE PUBLISHING THIS NEWSLETTER EVERY MONTH. Stay tuned for other changes, too . . . I’ll see you next month or the month after. Please don’t forget to check my site often and look for updates and changes. I’m redesigning the site and offering more gifts and features.

It's been a pleasure having you as a newsletter reader. Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for future issues!!! Or if you need help with anything.
