“When I first met Stephanie at a workshop five years ago, she brought energy to the course and a unique way of breaking tasks down into simpler forms. This skill is something I believe is a necessity with any therapist – our clients need small, manageable, and achievable tasks. The REAL Guide to Life as a Couple does this perfectly. Stephanie takes a series of complex tasks and brings to her readers a series of comprehensible narratives along with activities which build a couple’s skills and abilities to address the difficult questions. Each chapter is laid in a clear and easy to follow format. The strength of The REAL Guide as a self-help book is how Stephanie develops a couple’s skills as they move through it. The use of humor also makes for easy reading.” – Dr. Christopher Fox, Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist,
