We did not find and sustain our great relationship without being tested. We were friends for twenty years before we fell in love and became a couple. And even though we were experienced counselors, we still brought baggage from our past.
At one point in the midst of a crisis, we even considered separating. We were mired in an issue that was eroding our love and neither of us felt able to get through on our own. We sought the help of relationship experts and made the repairs we needed to rebuild a strong and healthy relationship.
We know from our professional and personal experience that people can learn the attitude and basic skills required to have a deeply fulfilling and passionate partnership.
Our own experience of healing and transforming hurt and resentment has deepened our intention to serve others in their quest for secure and lasting intimacy.
