presented by Deb Thorstenson, MsED, LPC, LAC

Healthy relationships are characterized by respect, sharing and trust.
They are based on the belief that both partners are equal and that the
power and control in the relationship are equally shared. In contrast,
love addiction partners can lose their sense of self because of their
obsession with romance and unrealistic expectations on themselves

enable you to change them and your behavior.
