Dr. Creighton is a psychologist and relationship consultant who has worked with couples and conducted communications training for more than 50 years.

Dr. Ronald J. Frederick joins us today to reveal how to rewire our brains to achieve healthy, secure relationships.

Dr. Frederick has provided innovative and experiential therapy to individuals and couples for over twenty years and actively teaches and trains psychotherapists.
