     Fact number one: All you need is love.
     Fact number two: It seems to be the most elusive condition to both find and keep.
     There is a reason for this, and it’s one of the saddest features of the human condition. Whether we’re searching for a mate or already in a long-term relationship, it’s the hardest to be our best selves when it matters the most!
     During his long and fruitful career counseling couples and singles, licensed psychologist Dr. Rick Blum has been determined to solve this puzzle. Research guided him during these decades, but more importantly, his clients taught him what worked and what didn’t. Gradually, The Recipe became crisp and golden. Blum’s unusually effective results allowed him to enjoy an overfull practice without having to join managed care panels. Grateful for this, he wants to share these discoveries with a wider audience.
