Dr Susan Shaffer, PsyD


We all want to be loved and understood. We look to our mate, but no where do we learn how to have a happy, fulfilling relationship. Being in a committed relationship is the most challenging aspiration of our lives. When it goes wrong we can find ourselves in distant parallel lives or conflict rages.
