Love deeply. Freely. And with conviction. But never forget that love is not a state of being happened upon by accident. To love is an action verb, like to choose, to play, to honor, to work, and to protect. Love. And keep loving.
After a result-less decade of psychotherapy and half a decade more of desperate attempts to live peaceably with our special needs adopted child, I made a coaching appointment with Carmen. At our first session, she introduced me to the idea of using the body and a change of perspective to change a relationship. The VERY NEXT conflict with my daughter ended with the words, "I love you!" The next fizzled in laughter. THERE HASN'T BEEN ANOTHER.
If you are suffering from the daily, stomach-churning stress of an impossible relationship, I cannot recommend Carmen's coaching highly enough. -S.D., Virginia
