Special Tools & Tecniques for a Happy Marriage


Marriage and Family Therapist & Author of the book "BluePrint for a Lasting Marriage", Lesli Doares joins the show. She says one of the most important things that a married couple can do is pay attention to the timing of when they have hard conversations. Maybe someone has a request about a change in behavior. A really good tool or tecnique is to try to avoid the word "you" when you are making a request of your partner.  "You" can be a fighting word and it raises your partners defences and makes it more difficult for your partner to hear what it is you are asking.

Lesli Doares is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in the Cary, NC area. She is a writer, speaker and seminar leader. In her practice, she focuses on helping couples build strong, secure relationships. It is her belief that with the proper tools and techniques, most couples can have a happy and successful relationship. Her passionate belief in marriage has led to the development of a five step approach couples can use to create their ideal marriage. Lesli brings both her personal experience and professional training to her work with couples. She and her husband, Steve, have been married for over twenty years and have two teenage children. Lesli is a sixth generation Californian who has lived in North Carolina since 1995.
