Just Published!

I’m delighted to announce that my new book Growing Married: Creating Stories for a Lifetime of Love has just been published in February, 2022.

Growing Married offers a powerful approach to uncovering the positive potential within your relationship from the unique perspective of lifecycle change. Weaving together cutting-edge thinking, research and practical strategies, you’ll learn how to use your life experience and anticipated challenges as opportunities to re-story your relationship to focus on what matters most. Filled with reflection guides and exercises, this is a compassionate resource for partners trying to shape a lifetime of meaning, integrity and love.
