Often the individuals and couples we see have been so busy in their lives that they have “forgotten” about the need to nurture their marriage or relationship. They may not have been present in their relationship for years. Then one day they wake up and realize they feel distant or even estranged from their partner. That’s when we get a call.

Today I wanted to share Michelle Obama’s revelation that she and Barack have gone to marriage counseling! It was bold of her to open up and let others know that even in the best marriages, couples go to counseling. She is quite the role model. If you haven’t seen the article and video in Time Magazine, here it is:
