We all bring our own sexual set of beliefs into our marriages. Over the next 3 weeks, we’re going to be taking a look at & calling out 10 “sexpectations” so that you can identify & become aware of which ones are affecting your sexuality & sex life, that you & your spouse might grow together sexually - beyond the beliefs that are holding you back!

#031: Change Isn't One-Size-Fits-All

Have you ever tried to implement a change that didn’t work for you long-term? As a marriage & family therapist, that doesn’t surprise me at all. Why? Because humans & relationships are too complex for there to be a one-size-fits-all solution to the changes we’re wanting to make. Today, I’m sharing with you what I know about change from a systems perspective, in hopes that at the end of this episode, you’ll have a better understanding of your relationship to yourself, to your spouse, AND to change itself.

#026: The Roles We Play

What role did you play in your family of origin? How has that impacted you as an adult? On today’s episode, we explore 5 different roles that each of us play into as children in our families of origin: The Entertainer; Peacekeeper; Role Model; Baby; & Fixer. In upcoming weeks, we’ll explore how these roles impact our sense of self & our marriages so that we can be intentional about creating the lives, marriages, and families we desire to have as adults!
