Greetings!
 
September marks the beginning of Fall and usually indicates a busier time of year. From getting kids back to school to the start of the holiday season, our schedules begin to fill up. I recommend taking the time to reconnect, with yourself, with your spouse and with your family.

Tell us how we are doing. If you're a former or current client of Wasatch Family Therapy please consider filling out this survey and give us feedback about your therapist.

Enjoy!

Taking a year out of your life and traveling the world to rediscover yourself, like Elizabeth Gilbert in her best-selling memoir turned blockbuster movie Eat Pray Love, is hardly realistic for me and for most women I know. Yet, there is something about Liz's quest to reconnect with herself and to rediscover her passion for life that resonates with millions of moviegoers. I believe its possible to continue the journey of personal development while remaining committed to family relationships, and without traveling to exotic destinations.

MAKING WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES MEANINGFUL
Celebrating Your Commitment

More couples "tie the knot" during the summer months which means more couples are also celebrating wedding anniversaries at this time of year. Taking the time, effort, and forethought to create meaningful anniversary traditions helps to nurture your marriage and to keep the romance alive. Reflecting on the history of your early relationship, and recommitting to the promises you made on your wedding day increases the sense of emotional security and deepens the bonds of love. Here are a few tips to inspire you to make your wedding anniversary more meaningful.
