Men Are Complicated June 12, 2013

Most of us have been taught to believe that women are complicated. As a Couples Therapist, Dr. Debi has found that women are actually very simple, but they speak in a “Secret Code” that makes them hard for men to understand. Men are complicated because they don’t speak … that is, they rarely talk about what they’re thinking and feeling or what they need from their women. Dr. Debi is on a mission to clear up the confusion!

Watch “Women Are Simple: Part 1” and “Women Are Simple: Part 2.”

We think they don’t for one simple reason: They almost never tell us what they’re thinking!

How to Get What You Want June 3, 2013

Many couples have a hard time getting their emotional needs met and their relational longings fulfilled. But it need not be that way!

Both men and women can fall into the trap of believing that their partner simply doesn’t care. Consequently, they go round and round in a negative cycle of interactions.

In reality, romantic partners really want each other to be happy. However, they often don’t realize …

(a) what the other person needs or
(b) how much a positive response would mean.

pink_elephant-smAs a Couple’s Psychologist, I read a lot of information about relationships.

One thing that amazes me about most approaches to helping couples is how much attention therapists give to what goes wrong.

Shouldn’t we be focusing on how to make things go right?

It’s like we’re telling people not to think about Pink Elephants, then spending all our time talking about Pink Elephants! In doing so, many well-intentioned counselors actually help couples maintain the self-fulfilling prophecy: We bring about what we think about! I guess it helps some therapists stay in business.

Not me! I’m determined to help men and women recapture the romance they once enjoyed and now long for. All this has inspired me to develop an New 3-day Workshop … one with an upbeat, yet realistic biblical foundation. Watch for it this fall!

Dr. Debi SmithWhy Do Men Stonewall?
Wednesday, May 22

Women work hard at their relationships. When something’s wrong, it’s the woman who notices it and wants to talk about it – to figure out what’s wrong and fix the problem. However, many men withdraw from such a conversation or simply fail to respond. In this webinar, you’ll learn why men stonewall and what you can do about it.

Fred Judkins, Dr. Debi Smith, and the Dance With Me Team demonstrate Victorian-style dance at Mariners Church in Irvine, CA. Vintage dance is stylish, elegant, easy to learn, fun … and very, very romantic.

Welcome to a Totally New Kind of Couples Workshop!
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. ~ Ephesians 5:21

This passage applies to the body of believers in fellowship with one another, so it naturally applies to husbands and wives as well. However, just how husbands and wives are to submit to one another is easily misunderstood in our current culture.

That’s what Dance With Me is all about — learning what submission looks like in the 21st Century. In this workshop couples learn to pay attention to one another’s needs and to be responsive to one another in light of his/her unique design and purpose.
