If you or someone you know is in a relationship that doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't. The first step is the biggest, but it is also the simplest: pick up the phone and call us. We understand if you're apprehensive. We understand if you're afraid. But it's a phone call; it's not a commitment. Tell us what is happening between you and your partner. Be honest with us. Be honest with yourself. We will listen to everything you have to say, and advise you on your best options.
No matter what the final outcome, we realize this is a very painful time for you. But you don't need to go through it alone. Please know we are ready, able, and willing to help you. Right now. So please, help us help you. Make this phone call.
