I guess I have always wanted to be a princess…I have always been interested in Princess Stories and watched all the movies and read all the books I could. Every movie I saw, every book I read, I asked myself. What happens after the wedding? I knew, as a therapist, that Happily Ever After does not come naturally and that it needs work. Truth be told, I wrote this book mostly for men. When a woman has a problem, she is more likely to go to a therapist. Men will often try to do things themselves. This book can help them.
I was a teacher before I was a Family and Relationship Therapist. I learned a lot about how people learn by working with the 3rd and 5th graders in my class. In my work first as a teacher, and then as a therapist for children, I learned early on that people love stories. I saw that kids would learn new concepts better when they heard them in story form. I knew that storytelling would be a better way to get the point across. As a therapist, I knew that story telling goes right to the sub-conscious mind and that the conscious mind does not reject it. I realized that teaching concepts to adults would be hard because adults often fight new concepts, take things personally and want to be right in most situations. A story would take the “fight” out of the process
I wrote this book to be of service and to be of help. I can see from my private practice clients that RELATIONSHIP MAGIC is making an incredible difference in people’s relationships. I want to help other couples with this book. If couples can read this book, they will see that there is hope for them and that they are not alone.
