  • #40 Which “Part” of You is Driving the LDR Bus?

    5 APR 2024 · We are on a unique journey being in a LDR or commuter marriage. ❤️✈️Sometimes it’s like driving a bus 🚌down a bumpy road! We all know we want to be with our person and the distance won’t stop our love! However there are parts of us that struggle with the distance, parts that hate the distance and there are even parts of us that enjoy time apart. At different times ….different parts of us are driving that LDR bus.🚌 Why? Why do we vacillate from one part to the other?  Join us for a fascinating discussion about these parts of us from the modality of Internal Family Systems with our guests Tammy Sollenberger, LCMHC & Henry D. Beckwith, Psy.d. Tammy and Henry are not only in a long distance relationship themselves, but are also licensed psychotherapists who specialize in the IFS model. You will be shocked to learn how helpful it is to look at how we cope with distance through this lens! ❤️✈️ If you would like to learn more about our guests or check out Tammy’s book or podcast you can find out more at these links! (
