    In this full-length Room for Two preview episode, Jennifer meets with Carly and Dave. Dave has spent his entire life being a problem solver--for his mother, his wife, and the world.

A dynamic that has left Carly feeling lonely, frustrated, and resentful.

im Extremely Grateful ,

Changed my life.

My marriage counselor pointed me to Jennifers podcast. Specifically to the “Betrayal Trauma, Pornography & Sex”. I’m not kidding you when I say I took 6 pages of notes. It’s full of information and clarification that I have never received. She corrected some viewpoints and I could instantly trust everything she says because she’s so straight forward. That podcast changed my life and helped give me better language to use to discuss with my husband what my husband may be feeling from his side. The next one that I share with friends and family is her “Boundaries” podcast. I have had multiple counselors explain Boundaries to me, but EVERY counselor should explain them the way Jennifer does. Wow. I can’t tell you how incredibly grateful and indebted I feel towards this woman I have never met. Thank you Jennifer.

My New Addiction

Listening to Jennifer has become my new compulsion. She has helped me in so many ways. She’s helped me become a better husband, more self less and more empathetic. Not only has she helped my marriage but she’s helped me become a better person just in my day to day living.

Everyone needs to listen to this

Dr. FF is so wise and able to put the abstract into words when it comes to relationships and sexuality.

The one thing I would love wit each interview is a concrete step someone can take after listening to the podcast. Sometimes I come away understanding the problem better but confused on what to do next.

Thank you so much for all these amazing interviews.
