Linda Carroll Love CyclesThis week our guest is Linda Carroll, MS. She has worked as a couple’s therapist for more than 35 years and for the past five years has been a couples coach throughout the United States, both in person and via long-distance telecommunications.

In addition to being a licensed psychotherapist, she is certified in Transpersonal Psychology and Imago Therapy, the highly successful form of couple’s therapy developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt. She is also a master teacher in the Pairs Psychoeducation Process, a nationally-recognized relationship education program for couples.

Linda is here to speak about her new book, “Love Cycles.” The notions that passion always peters out, that we’re vulnerable to a “seven-year itch,” and that honeymoons are over once reality sets in are clichés that contain a kernel of truth. But the inevitable waning of infatuation doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy long-term love. As veteran couples therapist Linda Carroll shows, love cycles, including Doubt and Denial, are part of genuine intimacy, rather than signs of its demise.

Love Cycles argues that by courageously journeying through the stages that follow the initial, rapturous Merge cycle, we can finally arrive on the shores of authentic intimate relationship. As crucial as our willingness to navigate the stormy waters of Disillusionment and Decision is our ability to embrace the inner personal development that is both a reward of and prerequisite for Wholehearted Loving. The goal that Carroll demonstrates how to attain is to become our best self and to share that self — honestly and joyfully — with another. Love Cycles is for people who want a healthy, happy, committed relationship — now and in the future.
