The Neuroscience of Marriage

One secret to a happy marriage is that both people make each other feel good on a cellular level. I can help you identify the neurological reasons you are struggling to connect with your spouse, and most importantly how to retrain your brain for love and compassion using simple yet profound skills and techniques.
