Creating a safe haven for each other in a marriage can enable a couple to weather any storm. Yet that accomplishment is certainly easier said than done. Thankfully, today we have an expert on this topic joining us to present a detailed blueprint for establishing a marital safe haven so that couples can count on each other and avoid criticizing, blaming, and shutting out their partners during the inevitably tough times. Our guest today is Founder and President of Safe Haven Relationship Counseling Center, Dr. Sharon Hart May. Sharon received a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Master’s degree in Theology from Fuller Graduate School of Theology, and is a certified EFT therapist and supervisor. Her dissertation and consequent research work has focused on EFT, attachment theory, and the importance of healthy and strong marriage and family relationships being ‘safe havens’. Over the years Dr. May has been featured on radio programs, such as "Arguing with Dr Sharon," Focus on the Family, and Family Talk as well as television shows including Life Today. Dr. May has also published numerous articles in psychological journals and contributed chapters to several marriage and family books.

She serves as a blog contributor for Family Talk, is on our AACC Executive Board, and she also serves as an adjunct professor at Azusa Pacific University.
