I always encourage my clients to read “The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts. The book provides readers with an opportunity to shift their perspective.

The book breaks down the different ways people yearn to be loved. Readers gain a deeper understanding of their wants and needs within a relationship.In addition, readers begin to understand that the way their partner expresses love may not reflect what they look for in return.
