This letter was sent to me today. Enjoy.

I remember the first day I called Creative Solutions Counseling, I was down and out. My fiancee at the time and I have been running our relationship into the ground and although we said we loved each other, we surly wouldn’t of stayed married at the rate we were going.  We called each other every name in the book and our arguments just kept going in circles. There was no solution to must of our disagreements just one of us would say the worse thing possible until the other gave up. Which usually ended up meaning that we spent the next several days not speaking to one another. We began counseling as a couple and through further meetings realized that it just wasn’t getting through to us as we did it together. That’s when we separated and did individual counseling.

        That’s when I met Joe Martino, I was scared and with the wedding already behind us, I knew there was no other man I wanted to be with but knew that some where along the way we had developed very unhealthy habits. Joe taught me to love myself again, he taught me that it was ok to be who I am, he taught me that I can’t make everything perfect but I can perfect the art of rolling with it. Joe made me realize that with good comes bad and I get to choose how I respond to it.

        The thing that Joe said to me that has stuck with me is that only I can allow someone to effect me a negative way and that I am the only one that can control myself worth. He helped me understand the issues that I have carried with me for so long. Weren’t really issues that I had of myself but I was allowing society/my parents/husband/friends opinions influence who I thought I HAD to be not who I was or wanted to become.  Joe has a way of making me understand my feeeling/emotions. As I write this letter today, I simply can’t find the words to say Thank you enough. Thank you for listening to me, thank you for helping me through the struggles I have carried with me for as long as I can remember. Most of all, Thank you for saving my Marriage, my friendship, my love and my commitment to my vow for my husband.  I am turning 26 and for the first time in my life, I can say that I am happy! Sure, there are things that I could always want to be better but with time comes change. My husband and I for the first time are communicating not just our words, our body language, our emotions and even more then communicating, we are hearing each other for the first time load and clear.  Creative Solutions Counseling has helped us become proud of ourselves, which has made us happier in our relationship. They’ve taught us how to bat for the same team and that some times we will strike out but to get back up again and not quit our team. Our marriage is worth it, I am worth it, and he is worth it.

 I would absolutely recommend and urge everyone to go to counseling, we spend so much time learning things about our world that it’s just doesn’t make since not to know about yourself and learn what really makes you happy! There is not a doubt in my mind that my relationship will have more struggles as we get older but with the foundation that we have built I know that we can stand the test of times and if we can’t figure it out by ourselves with have Creative Solutions to be there to help!

Thank you so much for all that you’ve done for me and will continue to do for others!
