TOO MUCH TOGETHERNESS
LACK OF SEX
Somewhere inside of me I must have always known I was going to be a consultant, but it was unbeknownst to me as my younger self. I now realize many situations in my life have led me to becoming a successful consultant helping people strengthen their relationships.
I was that child, who was very smart and liked by adults, but bullied by other children. I was the child in class who kept asking “why”. I had an incredible memory and could memorize anything, but my brain worked in such a way that I needed to understand the “why”. I clearly remember in 1st grade after school one day asking the 6th grade science teacher what clouds are made of. He gave me a silly, nonscientific answer that didn’t answer the “why” and I walked away very frustrated. Needless to say, all of the other children were happy to just accept the answer and therefore were very annoyed I kept delaying the process of moving forward in class. I never imagined how helpful my need to understand the “why” would be for me as an adult.
I found many people easily sharing their life stories and difficulties with me. New friends, romantic relationships, and even strangers (who became friends) at the dog park and other social gatherings would open up to me. As they realized what they were sharing, they would always say they had never shared that information before and it was so easy to talk to me. Hmm, I should have known then.
It still took many years and different challenges for me to put all of the pieces together. I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology and became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My instinct, while helping my clients, was that my clients would want more than just talking about feelings; they would want active steps for change. I started developing unique strategies to go along with the in-depth therapy I was providing. With my years of experience helping individuals and couples with their relationships as a therapist I separated out my strategies from the therapy and have been offering my unique strategies to my consulting clients around the world.
I discovered that my needing to understand “why” throughout my life was insight in how to help my clients reach their goals. I understand the importance for my clients to understand the “why” and my clients have been able to move towards their goals more easily and efficiently when they themselves understand the “why”. “Why are the problems in their relationship occurring?” “Why have the prior attempts to strengthen their relationship not worked?” “Why are the strategies Stephanie is suggesting going to make a difference?”
My unique strategies have had incredible success to help my clients Enhance Their ... Hope, Laughter & Intimacy allowing them to have enjoy their partner and get excited about building their future together.
