Last Monday I introduced you to one of New York’s most sought after psychotherapists and relationship change experts, Rachel Moheban. Rachel, who’s a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and holds a Masters in Social Work from New York University, is the force behind The Relationship Suite and The Ultimate Relationship Resolution Program. A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of talking to Rachel about her upcoming projects, the relationship issues she sees regularly in her practice, and the launch of her Ultimate Relationship Resolution Program. In part 1 of our interview, we talk about turning 40 and what it takes to build a one of kind business. (photo: Rachel Moheban, LCSW)
On Turning 40
“For me, 40 was revolutionary.” Rachel explains. “It’s a time when you really come into yourself in an incredible way. In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill says that between the ages of 40 and 60 we are our most creative, and I’ve found that to be true. At 40 I started developing my program and it’s the time when I learned the most emotionally and professionally.” Rachel also believes that we become more in tune with our spiritual selves in our 40s. She says, “if you can really tune into that, it’s miraculous.”
On The Ultimate Relationship Resolution Program
In practice for 15 years, Rachel notes that the average couple waits 7 years before deciding to go to therapy. By then she says, “the resentment has really grown and it becomes harder and harder for couples to communicate.” She saw that couples needed an additional resource to address the issues that most impacted them. Those issues are money, physical intimacy and anger. The program, which focuses on prevention and intervention, was created “for couples who need support in understanding and learning how to better get along with their partners.” It’s also valuable for relationships with children, parents, colleagues and friends. Rachel says the program, or “relationship toolkit” as she refers to it, is like Cliff Notes, “it’s a condensed version of countless books and seminars all rolled into material ready to give a quick start to more intimacy, well-being, a stronger relationship with your partner, and a happier life together.”
On building “The Relationship Suite”
As I’ve been doing with all our Women at Forty Whirly Girls I asked Rachel what advice she’d give to women running their own business. “Have confidence,” she says, “know yourself really well. Know your center, stay connected to your passion and where it takes you. It will be natural and organic if you’re connected.”
Wednesday: Rachel tells us the relationship mistake many women make, gives her opinion on the infamous “list” and shares her number one piece of relationship advice.
