‘Tis the season for Valentine’s Day. Join Julie and Gina this week to talk through the best ways to approach cupid’s holiday for people in relationships.
“One of the places people can get in trouble is when one person has hopes and dreams about the day and the other is kind of apathetic. So I often see people in my office in the aftermath of Valentine’s Day.”
“Why not set aside a day to celebrate love and partnership?"
“A lot of people are afraid to name their needs because they don’t want to seen ‘needy’ so then they don’t get their needs met.”
“What are you needing to create more excitement around sex instead of feeling pressure?”
