The global lockdown we are going through these days, while facing COVID-19, made us want to offer some support to couples and families.

We were very happy to interview Tina Tessina, PhD, MFT, who’s also known as Dr. Romance. Tina has been practicing therapy for decades and had a lot of practical wisdom to share with us. 

Some of the topics we discussed:

  • The power of asking each other “How can I support you today?”
  • The importance of forgiveness
  • Sense of humour as a resource
  • Practicing short moments of connection
  • How regulating counting our blessings and being grateful can be
  • Tips on having sex under lockdown
  • Using resources like exercising and dancing

The interview is 33 minutes long and is packed full of practical gems you can use.
