Reading Recommendations • San Jose Couples Counseling
The following is a compilation of reading recommendations to help you repair your relationship.
I hope you find them helpful. The resources listed here are for couples who are struggling and want to make an immediate and positive change in their relationship.
Ideally, you should use them in addition to couples therapy or marriage counseling. The tools here are intended to help stabilize your relationship between now and when you begin working with a marriage counselor.
If you have an appointment scheduled with me, I look forward to hearing how these reading resources may have helped.
