"Robert's words are right there online, "There is hope." And those simple words carry so much meaning when applied in applied in a caring, professional manner. It can't be an easy job to try to patch up communication problems and relationship difficulties that span decades at times between couples, but there is an art to truly listen to each other and an even greater skill to teach that to people who need it the most. Patience, caring and an intense focus on the positive allowed us to thrive and finally hear each other in a way I honestly did not think possible. There are no words to properly thank someone for saving a relationship, although repeating my appreciation early and often is a start. Thanks again Rob, your heartfelt efforts provided us with that hope where there was none."

Mastery of new ideas and skills takes a bit of time. Unless you commit and persist in your efforts to do something beyond what you have already mastered, things will be forever as they are today. The process of change and understanding is an ongoing state of exploration that is never finished... a journey that never ends.
There is hope.
