My husband and I, basically, just shared a house together as roommates with little to no communication. Counseling at CRSH enabled us to reconnect with each other. We both are much happier.
I felt so alone, even in a room full of people. My therapist at CRSH helped me to understand my feelings, how to overcome the sadness and live a more fulfilled life.
Physical intimacy and desire seemed to be gone from the relationship with my partner. We were embarrassed to talk about this with anyone until we found our therapist at CRSH. What a difference this has made in our lives and relationship.
I have learned how to communicate in a healthier manner in my personal and professional life. The change in me and my relationship with others is profound.
Our marriage, our lives, our happiness have been positively impacted by the counseling we received at CRSH.
