I’ve known Keith Miller as the successful founder of Keith Miller & Associates Counseling, and it’s no surprise that he’s written a terrific book to help sort out the confusing maze of choices couples face when finding a therapist. With compassion, sensitivity and humor, Keith serves as a hands-on guide to help couples find the best path to navigate through their unique challenges. What is particularly useful in Love Under Repair is how Keith skillfully draws upon his own personal history as well as over a decade of clinical experience working with couples in crisis. Highly recommended as a first crucial step for couples wanting to make the best choices and a must-read for any professional that supports couples in distress.
