Way to go, Winifred!!

Marriage Therapist Winifred Reilly

Marriage Therapist Winifred Reilly

We have a great bunch of folks in our wordpress community. It’s always wonderful to see one of “us” do well, and one of us has.

In this case, it’s marriage therapist par excellence Winifred Reilly. To quote from her brilliant blog speakingofmarriage:

Winifred M. Reilly, M.A., MFT, is a psychotherapist specializing in marital therapy and relationship issues, with a private practice in Berkeley, CA.

I suppose I could just shorten that to say that Winifred is a psycho marriage therapist. (Hopefully this quip won’t cost her too many clients.) }:-)>

I love Winifred’s posts. She has a beautifully natural writing style—she writes so effortlessly, or so it seems. Her lessons are wise, simple, elegant, short, and often times hilarious.

Only the best marriage therapist in the universe could come up with this post: Mastering the Art of Shutting Up. (I’m laughing all over again.)

One thing I particularly love about Winifred is that she’s unbiased when it comes to relationships. What’s good for the gander is also good for the goose. She challenges everyone to think about their own behaviour in the relationship, but in a funny and non-threatening way.

And now, a testament to what a great marriage therapist she really is, Winifred has been quoted in a NY Times article!

Well done, Winifred. Well done, indeed.

    That was a great post you linked to. It’s really all about picking your battles, isn’t it?
    Thanks for that, Nav. 🙂

      It is indeed. Quite welcome, Linda.

      Wonder what Santa’s bringing you this XMAS?

        Hmm… I wonder if Santa knows what he’s bringing me this Xmas…?

          As I said in my blog earlier, I do hope to see a Navigator in my driveway. 😉

          I would say it’s a strong possibility.

    I don’t even know her personally, but to be quoted in the NY Times is really quite awesome!!

    • navigator1965 December 17, 2013 at 6:12 am #

      Is it ever!

      • songtothesirens December 17, 2013 at 8:38 am #

        It is totally cool! I mean, its the New York Times, not some little paper like ours here! They publish a book review that the industry uses as a gold standard!

        • navigator1965 December 17, 2013 at 6:35 pm #

          S2S, It clearly is a feather in Winifred’s cap that she was the expert quoted in a NY Times article. Totally cool indeed. Again, well done, Winifred.

    I’m so glad I discovered your blog today, o fellow navigator. I look forward to our journeys intersecting in the future.

      My dear Ann,

      So nice of you to come and visit. A fellow navigator! I must know more.

      Yes, I suspect our paths will cross again at some point.
