  • Marriage as a Path of Compassion

    Most of us enter into relationship in order to find a safe harbor to get away from the storms of the world, says couples therapist Richard Borofsky. Then we discover that the safe harbor sometimes becomes a storm itself.

  • Love's Apprentices

    You are already one of love’s apprentices—whether you know it or not. That's because learning to love and be loved is the principal reason we are all here on this planet, say couples therapists Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky.
