By Amanda Clegg, Relationship Coach Yep, the roommate phase in relationships. I see it all the time in my work. Whether the couple is newly into their marriage or have spent decades together – it seems to be a normal part of partnership. But, just because something is typical, doesn’t mean that we should accept […]
Divorce is one of the most painful, scary, and overwhelming life experiences that someone can go through as a human. It rocks your foundation and leaves you feeling so deeply alone. It causes you to question how you’ll pay your bills, survive on your own, support your children, be able to trust another person in […]

by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT In just a few days Maryland is prepared to roll out Maryland Strong, which they call a roadmap to recovery. I call it a recovery and release effort, if you know what I mean. Tomato, Tomahto. Anyway, Marylanders, and many other states, will finally get a small taste of […]
by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT Well that was a doozy. You know what I’m talking about, right?…quarantine life. If you were in a state where social distancing or shelter-in-place was enacted then you know the language I’m speaking. Quarantine life is no. stinkin’. joke. And for many of us, that quarantine life is slowly […]
At the end of May 2019, we wrapped up the first birth trauma therapy group here at Wellness & Co. For eight weeks, four mamas learned; developed relationships; processed through hurt, pain, abandonment, and anger; and worked on forgiving themselves for not making choices they might have made had they felt empowered to do so. It was a privilege for me to watch them work through their struggles together, especially as a survivor of birth trauma myself. It was amazing to watch a mother soften in her judgement of herself and also feel completely accepted by those around her, something that these women admitted to previously not feeling very often, if ever.
When I started seeing clients in Maryland five years ago I noticed that people often had the same comments or questions regarding the therapeutic process. They typically go something like this: “but you haven’t experienced [parenting] so you don’t really know what its like,” “you must have the perfect marriage,” “I didn’t want to come because people in therapy have real problems and ours isn’t a problem,” “I figured that if I came to therapy once a week something would change”
….these types of comments and more go on and on. In short, people think ALL sorts of things about therapy.
Do you ever feel like your relationship is stuck? Running on autopilot? Or completely thrown off course?
I get it, I really do. I want you to know that if you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re normal. Your relationship is totally, 100%, normal.
We all get stuck. We all let our relationships run on cruise control without the proper love and attention they need. And, we all let our partnerships run off course. All of us, even therapists.
