[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_style=”normal”]If you work with couples or individuals, you will see clients who lie and now want you to help them regain their moral integrity. You will see couples in crisis in the aftermath of infidelity. Often, you are their last stop. You will want to be prepared.

Join me for this video series. Over the next 3 days, I’ll give you insights into:

  1. Four Types of Lies. There are four main types of lies couples tell each other. Knowing them will make a difference in how you remain strong in your sessions.
  2. Six Indicators of Truth Telling. While you can’t be a detective, these guidelines will help you assess better when a client is telling you the truth.
  3. How Conflict Avoidant and Hostile Dependent relationships become fertile ground for deception.
  4. Felony Lies. The toughest couple combination is a felony liar with a lie inviting spouse. Watch and you will be able to recognize and confront this dynamic more skillfully.

Fill in your name and email address in the box above and you will be taken directly to my first video.

Building honesty in relationships,

What others have said
about the video series:


The video and information was so helpful. I love how your perspective highlights the function lies serve. You really focus on how lies are created by the complex expectations and interactions between partners and most of the time are not about character and morals. This gives us something to work with when working with couples.Thank you Ellyn and Pete!

Thank you for the clear video presentation This was easy to follow but extremely thought provoking. You have helped start paving a way to make it much more acceptable (to me) for me to work with couples in this difficult but common area. Thank you. I look forward to seeing the remaining videos.
