GET UPDATES FROM Robert C. Jameson
 
As a licensed marriage and family therapist, Robert C. Jameson focuses on helping clients understand and overcome issues, such as anger, hurt, depression, anxiety, love, relationships, boundaries and limiting beliefs, to name a few. During his years of private practice, Mr. Jameson found it useful to give many of his clients "homework" in the form of handouts to support their work while in session. The Keys to Joy-Filled Living was born from his handout of tried and true exercises and techniques.

Mr. Jameson is also the author of Thoughts of Pomery, an entertaining book of pictures and thoughts that guides the reader to expand their perceptions of life and relationships with others, Don't Lose Weight — Give It Away, which explores the emotional aspects of weight loss, and The Pocket Oasis, a fun and useful pocket-sized book that can be used as a tool to help center anyone during a hectic day.

In addition to his work as a therapist and writer, Mr. Jameson is an accomplished musician. He produced and released, Ani Hu — Empathy with God, an hour-long CD, which helps the listener to meditate, relax, or sleep.

What's the difference between Judgment and Evaluation?

A friend of mine once told me that next to every truth stands a lie, that one person's ceiling is another's floor, and that to follow a truth is like walking a razor's edge -- it's easy to fall off in error. I...

I'm sure you have wondered why you keep doing the same things over and over again, knowing full well that what you are doing just does not work, but you just keep doing it anyway. Right?

"Why?" you ask.

Well, one answer to...

What a great question!

I wish I heard more people asking it.

I want to explore the process of punishment. The process of punishment shows up in many relationships: couples, parent/child, employee/employer, friend/friend, as well as, the relationship you share with yourself.

Be Who You Are and Stand Above the Crowd

When I was young, I practiced being invisible. I didn't want to be noticed. I could walk into a room, hang out for a while and then leave and no one knew I was there. I was good at hiding.

Being raised in a dysfunctional family, I was safest...

In a healthy, loving, long-term relationship we have to continuously and consciously choose to fall in love with our partner. It's an ongoing choice. They certainly didn't teach us that back in high school or in the movies. It's always been suggested that when we fall in love, we just...

We often have several "primary agreements" in our intimate relationships. We agree to take care of each other, as well as to be nice, to protect and not to hurt each other. "I've got your back! I wont hurt you, and I wont let any one else hurt you! You're...
