Breathing Room –

Creating Space to Be a Couple

Second Edition Just Released!

This popular book helps couples and singles discover ways to balance space, caring and connection.

Do these questions apply to you?

  • Are you tired of hurt feelings and misunderstandings that lead to anger and resentment?
  • Is resentment eating away at your relationship and interfering with the good stuff?
  • Would you like more connection and intimacy?

Relationships are a balancing act - between your yearning for closeness and your need for distance.

Breathing Room brings new perspective to the idea of space in relationships. You'll discover which space struggles are really about cultural, generational and gender style differences. You’ll learn about different expectations, disappointments, and hidden agendas.

Different needs for space complicate our work and personal relationships every day.

Breathing Room: Creating Space to Be a Couple helps you:

  • Balance your needs for closeness and space
  • Improve communication, teamwork and trust
  • Bounce back from disappointments and hurt
