The Love Fix

Repair and Restore Your Relationship Right Now

About the Book

All couples argue, but how do some couples get to what seems like the point of no return?

Licensed marriage and family therapist Dr. Tara Fields has spent more than twenty-eight years working with couples, and she has discovered that there are five common conflict loops that couples fall into—and three steps to getting past having the same fights over and over again and onward to building a relationship where each partner feels heard, understood, respected, and loved. These steps include:

  • Recognizing the conflict loop at play
  • Exploring past and present fears
  • Creating opportunities to get in touch with the deepest needs of both partners in order to find new gratitude, respect, and trust

Change comes with awareness. When you’re present in the moment, conflict with your partner can become an opportunity to work through unresolved issues and to learn more about each other; it can even become a way to grow closer. In The Love Fix, Fields shares her tested and proven tools to help build stronger relationships, including:

  • Insight from real couples who have repaired their relationships
  • Self-assessment quizzes to get to the root of the problem
  • Practical 3-Minute Fixes you can start using immediately
  • HEARTwork exercises to help you dig deeper in order to reconnect

It’s never too late to reignite your passion and to restore the love between you and your partner. Stop rehashing the same issues, figure out what you’re really fighting about, and start enjoying a happier, stronger relationship today.
