An Important Message... 

I just received a very important message from a reader and it occurred to me that her feelings and my response were important to share. I hope you will take the time to read it. Thank you:

Reader: Hello.. One of my Face Book friends likes your page so I found out about it through her... I have a suggestion I would like to make. It would be nice to see same sex couples on your postings, after all we have relationships too!

My response: Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback. It is much appreciated!

I absolutely agree with you. If you notice the articles that I write personally, I always write in gender neutral terms. All the advice that I give can be used for any sex or type of relationship as I always use the terms "partner," "significant other," "loved one" or "he/she." In fact, there are times that I decline requests that are too narrowly focused on a particular gender or heterosexual relationship for this reason. Other times, I accept the request and purposefully use those gender neutral terms so that those that read the content off my page will still be able to apply it to their lives.

I never, ever want to exclude any person or relationship as I see all types of clients in my practice. Unfortunately, the language used by other authors isn't always gender neutral and it's a shame. Because of my practice, I don't have enough time to write and generate enough content for my page, so I have to rely, in part, on the work of others that I feel have something useful to contribute.

Please know that I have heard your feedback and take it to heart.

Thanks very much again!
