Everyone goes through troubling times or situations. No matter who you are or what you do sometimes problems just get you down. It often helps to talk with someone who will listen, ensure your confidence and provide support for you to feel better again.

Tru has been called a “therapist’s therapist”. She is often called to travel to other’s offices to present Getting The Love You Want Workshop. Therapists from around the state and VA refer couples to Tru for Private Getting The Love You Want Workshops. They report after these workshops the couples typically exhibit renewed hope and reengage in their original work with the original therapist with strong communication skills, focus on teamwork and problem solve vs complaints.
