Relationship Counseling and Couples Therapy in San Luis Obispo, CA
Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing
and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing and finding
deeper connection. It is a dance of meeting and parting and
finding each other again. Minute to minute and day to day.
