Adapted from Dr. Pauline Boss's theory of "Ambiguous Loss," Certified Gottman Therapist ... Michael McNulty, Ph.D., LCSW, offers recommendations to help individuals, couples, and families during the COVID-19 crisis:

From afar, anyone can appear low-maintenance, but in reality we are all needy, annoying, ... demanding, and well, human. It’s just that we tend to only reveal these traits to those we are close to.

I’ve heard we're an average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. I don’t know ... about you but I’m down to two, my husband and my 17 year old. That means the people I read, watch, listen to better be good. We pick our advice when we pick our advisor and we pick our mood too.

How can i help?

I am here for you. Let's talk.
