Supporting Women, Girls & Super Commuter Couples

Supporting Women, Girls & Super Commuter Couples

Three mottos for women to consider: Just because you can, doesn’t mean you have to. You can always change your mind. The "Should" shouldn't make you feel bad.

Is this you?

Are you a stressed-out career-woman, “supermom”, or gifted girl exhausted from the pressure of trying to get everything perfect?

Are you used to being able to do everything really well but now are struggling to keep it all together?

Are you or your partner a Super Commuter meaning your work has you living away from home for days or weeks at a time?

Are you highly creative or talented but not pursing your passion?

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who specializes in supporting clients in a super commuter relationship, overwhelmed women, and gifted girls.  For example, are you stressed out from juggling career and family?  Are you a stay at home mom who misses her work life?  Or, are you someone with a “great job” that leaves them feeling unfulfilled?  And what about the person left behind to manage family life while their partner is gone for work for days or weeks at a stretch?  My book Super Commuter Couples: Staying Together When a Job Keeps You Apart addresses the issues these couples face.

A lot of attention is paid to people with “real problems”, but that means we sometimes overlook those who are under extraordinary amounts of stress and people just assume they can handle it.  I write and speak about the issues faced by women, couples who find work demands are keeping them apart, and the gifted community, and enjoy working with people who have a hard time asking for help.
