Relationship advice so you can take ownership of your life.
Is it Love?
Socrates was correct when he said “where there is love there is madness.” Romantic love and addiction share similar brain chemistry. Not shocking, right?
When a couple has gotten to know themselves beyond the courting phase and they get to see their partner’s “whole” personality, including their strengths and weaknesses, and still choose to love and accept each other for who they are, a neurohormone of love called oxytocin takes over. This is the commitment hormone. And when you get to this stage, that's when you start considering if this could be THE person for the long haul. But how do we figure that out? How do we know for sure? As the iconic (and apparently wise) band, Boston, has said - "it's more than a feeling."
There are three traits which I think are important in a relationship coach: authenticity, honesty, and passion. Kristy embodies all three. She’s not afraid to ask the tough questions that I may not want to think about and she’s not going to tell you what you want to hear – she’s going to help you get to your own truth.

Is it Lust?
Or is this the road to loss?
First things first: Not everyone you lose is a loss.
But here's the thing: as Bess Myerson once wrote “to fall in love is awfully simple, but to fall out of love is simply awful,” especially if you are the one who wanted the relationship to last. However, to stop loving isn’t an option. So how do we identify heartbreak in waiting? How do we get beyond the pain? How do we get ourselves on the path to move past the loss, and onto the road to love?
Kristy has been one of the most transformative people to enter my life. She was real, and with her relationship advice guided me down an honest path grounded in reality. I learned how to let healthy men into my life. I learned how to listen to myself. The check-list assignment was one of my favorite parts. It forced me outside my comfort zone and so I learned a lot about myself. It was filled with quite a few Oprah “Ah ha” moments.
