One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is, “How do I choose the right partner and build a healthy, loving and lasting relationship?”

Most couples find themselves without personal experience or good models of healthy relationships and wind up feeling inadequate or unsure about how to build a healthy, lasting committed relationship.

In a healthy relationship…

  • Each partner values the open sharing of thoughts and feelings.
  • There is a routine or regularity to events.
  • Conflict occurs and partner’s work to resolve disagreements, upsets and hurts by talking it out together.
  • Partners communicate clearly; they say what they mean and mean what they say.
  • Partners care about each other and how they feel; they are responsive to the feelings and needs of each other.
  • Each partner sets boundaries, both physically and emotionally.
  • Each partner interacts with, and is involved in the larger world.

Remember, only YOU can make it happen!
