My Day Made!
Jul 7, 2021
Being a marriage therapist is easy…said no one, EVER!
It is hard work. It is delicate work. It is emotional work.
It can come with some of the lowest lows, but also has some of the highest highs.
Like today, when clients who you helped FIGHT for their marriage years ago, reach out to say thank you and to tell you how well they are doing.
[Name omitted] and I are closing out on 6 years of marriage since we first met with you. Thought I would share this photo and hopefully brighten your day the way it brightened mine.

All the best,
Days like this make it all worth it. They make it some of the most rewarding work I’ve ever done and I’m so thankful I get to do it.
