Dear Concerned Spouse or Partner,


Are you looking for help in how to reduce or stop control conflict in your marriage or relationship? If so, you deserve credit for being willing to take action by coming to this page.

Has your mate accused you of being too controlling? Or are you tired of being controlled?

Maybe you and your partner are just having a rough period and would like some help to get through it. Or is it worse than that? Is your marriage or relationship on the rocks because one or both of you is fighting for control?

If so, don’t give up. Even if you’re the only one who wants to change the situation, there’s still hope that your relationship can turn around and thrive.


Which of these Familiar Control Issues Are You Facing?

  A Controlling Partner:
blames the other without taking responsibility for his (or her) part,
gets angry and defensive when questioned,
is often critical of the mate,
frequently tells the other how to do things,
is not open to looking at both sides of issues, or
always believes himself (or herself) to be right.

  A Passive Partner:
usually backs down during confrontations,
is not assertive in stating preferences,
usually does things the way the partner wants,
frequently holds true feelings in,
has suppressed anger, or
is tired of being controlled.


These are just a few of the problems I’ve helped my clients with over the years. And many times, clients like you have found ways to overcome these and other challenges in their marriage or relationship.

All you may need is the right guidance.

“The phone sessions have helped me a lot. Something’s working because my relationship with my husband is finally improving! I’d almost given up hope that things could ever be better.”

Are You Having Any of These Common Reactions?

You might be feeling stuck in your relationship and find that you're having difficulty taking action.
You could be paralyzed by fear and anxiety over what to do.
Maybe you have questions and concerns that you're still wrestling with and can’t resolve about your partner’s behavior.
Or perhaps you’re overwhelmed by frustration, anger, or discouragement regarding your situation.

If you can identify with any of these situations, I'm available to consult with you. It can help tremendously to get feedback and suggestions from someone who knows what you're going through and who knows what has worked for other spouses just like you.

When something as important as your marriage or relationship is on the line, it just makes good sense to use all of your available resources. Doesn’t that sound reasonable?

What is a Relationship Coach and Why Do You Need One?

It’s hard to see clearly when you’re the one intimately involved in an emotional struggle for control. Why? Because you’re just too close to what’s happening to be able to be objective.

That’s when it’s helpful to have useful advice from an experienced relationship expert. In a consultation session, I can offer you an objective perspective on what’s happening and share with you what has worked for other individuals and couples in a similar situation. That’s where my 25 years of experience as a counselor will help.

During your session, I will also be your relationship coach. In this role, I’ll help you accomplish your goals for your marriage or relationship, to unblock anything that is holding you back, and to set you on a new course of action.

I’ll provide you with encouragement, support, and specific tactics to enable you to bring renewed energy and effective strategies back into your relationship. It’s difficult to have stamina and vitality when you’re struggling under the weight of your relationship problems all by yourself.

If you want to become less controlling and create a more harmonious relationship, we'll work on that. If you want to become more assertive and empowered, we'll work on how you can create a more balanced relationship.

When you have a coach, you have someone else on your side to help you cope and plan what to do. Plus, it’s easier to gain positive momentum when you have assistance and support.

"I never thought I could get so much valuable information from a consultation session. And it's so convenient, too--fits my busy schedule. Thanks so much."


“The coaching sessions have made a big difference in my relationship. I didn’t think there was anything left to try before we started. Why don’t they teach this stuff in school?? Things are finally getting better and we’re both happier. Thanks for your help.”

Why You May Want to Consider Telephone Sessions: Convenience and Discretion

You can consult with me by telephone Monday through Friday. I talk to clients from around the world each week – including Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa – as well as from coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada who have appreciated this fact.

Many choose me because they don’t want to be seen in their hometown coming out of a marriage counselor’s office. They feel safe and anonymous talking to me.

Others simply like the ease of speaking to me on the phone from the convenience of their home without having to drive somewhere.

In a nutshell, the beauty of telephone consultations is that they:

take place in the privacy of your home (or wherever you want to be),

can be scheduled at your convenience so you don’t have to miss work,
save you travel time and the stress of traffic,
keep your personal problems private and confidential, and
offer a hassle-free way to receive coaching from a professional whose driving goal is to help you succeed in your relationship.


How To Set Up a Consultation/Coaching Session

Phone consultations are scheduled ahead of time by email. Then, at the appointment time, you just call me at the phone number I'll send you when you schedule the consultation.

Subjects I do not consult on include medical, legal, financial, and child custody issues. If I feel that your situation is beyond the scope of what I can provide, I'll refund your money in full and give you suggestions about other resources to consider.

You can feel comforted that help is just a telephone call away. Your relationship is a precious treasure, but you have to be proactive to keep it.

Here’s Your Guarantee

Can I really help you? I’ve helped hundreds of others.

But don’t take my word for it. Here's what one client said: "Your advice over the phone was an eye-opener and a relief. Now I have a game plan for what to do next and that gives me much more confidence than I had before. Thanks for your encouragement and help."

As a relationship expert with many years of experience in helping couples to transform their marriages or relationships, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t work. The strategies I’ll recommend to you are based on real-life situations, and they are designed to create a win-win solution for both you and your partner.

If you decide to let me help you with your relationship issues, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed or your money back!

The Most Important Thing for You to Do

Whatever you do...

Get moving and take action to help yourself and your relationship. Don't stay bogged down in confusion, frustration, passivity, or despair.

Once you start taking constructive action and get moving, you’ll set in motion a momentum that makes it easier and easier for you to take action to help yourself and your relationship.

I’ll look forward to consulting with you so that you can keep your marriage or relationship and increase the pleasure it brings you.

Best Wishes,

Nancy Wasson, Ph.D.

P.S. I can work with you individually or with both you and your spouse, depending on the situation. Write to me at if you have any questions about the telephone consulting.

"Until I took you up on your phone advice, I used to beg and plead a lot. It never worked well, but I didn’t know why.

Now I understand what that does to my husband’s perception of me and why it’s not a wise choice. Thanks for giving me some other ways to handle things."
