To the couples who are embarrassed by therapy

As a marriage counselor and Director of The Marriage and Family Clinic in Denver, CO, I see a lot of couples sit on my couch for the first time and describe to me challenges that have been going on for years.

Finally, after years of fighting and unhappiness, things finally became unbearable and they called to setup an appointment. Don't get me wrong; I'm glad they did. It's just too bad that they waited so long.
