Introducing The Family Therapy Blog

By Courtney Stivers, PhD

What happens when two marriage and family therapists are trapped together on a ten hour road trip?  A new blog is born of course!

My husband and I have been waiting for life to slow down to begin writing on ideas that we felt so passionate about in our graduate studies.  Two PhDs and two children later, this “slow down” is obviously not going to happen.  Since there is no time like the present, we have decided to launch our new blog as we begin 2015.  It is our sincere hope that this blog is a step in educating and challenging counseling professionals as well as a catalyst to strengthen relationships.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns.  I am sure we will be needing more topics to address in the future.
