When Rivka and I used to joke early on in our marriage that “it wouldn’t be good for our business” if we got divorced, I felt a pit in my belly.
Because it wasn’t funny.
It felt shameful.
How could it be that someone who studied psychology, mental health, relationships, and was working with couples professionally – privately had a marriage that was falling apart?
I felt like a hypocrite. A fraud.
Thank G-d we got the tools that we needed to fix our marriage problems back then.
And today after 19 years, we enjoy an incredibly happy marriage with a stronger, more rock solid foundation than ever before.
So the question here isn’t -why is it that so many helping professionals have a private life that is miserable?
The question is- why has everything you learned FAILED YOU?
Why is the material you studied in licensure programs, advanced certification, courses, CEUs, coaching school, Master’s programs not working (for some of you?)
That is the true crime.
You’re so good at what you do. You have no problem helping others get results.
But when it comes to taking your own advice and applying it to fix your own relationship at home? That’s where it gets hard.
And the bad news is that like me- you don’t have the time to wait.
You can’t keep seeing clients, couples, while your marriage is self destructing.
That’s not going to be great for you OR for your clients. They’ll “pick up” that something is not congruent.
And I know all too well what that’s like.
That’s why I created The Happily Married Helping Professional Program.
I didn’t want to keep watching my own colleagues and clinicians go through the pain that I’ve experienced.
After working privately with many therapists, coaches, and clinicians, I saw the need for a unique program created just for these professionals.
Because they needed a way to almost “deprogram” what they learned in school, since it just wasn’t working for their own private relationships.
I would love to be able to help you succeed and thrive as a happily married helping professional.
Launching in 2021, The Happily Married Helping Professional program will fill the gap that is missing in the helping industry. I’m excited to share it with you. PM for the exciting details!
