Break Free from Unfulfilling Relationship Patterns
Psychotherapist Dr. Marni Feuerman offers profound and insightful advice for women who find themselves in painful and unsatisfying relationships or dating experiences again and again. She offers explanations and solutions for why we attract and accept poor treatment, experience a lack of emotional connection from romantic partners, and often reject the good ones.
Based on the science of love, neurobiology, and attachment theory, as well as Dr. Feuerman’s clinical experience, Ghosted and Breadcrumbed provides expert guidance to help you recognize why you get stuck and how to change these patterns for good. Her practical advice, illustrated by real-life examples, will teach you how to spot and exit these situations and create healthy relationships that provide the love, support, and emotional connection you deserve.
