Do you use social media to communicate your deepest feelings to others?  Probably not, but how often do you use social media to talk with others?  Come on, admit it.  Many of us communicate electronically over the internet every day.  The question is, how effective is this type of communication compared to what might be termed, direct contact?  What is direct contact?  How does direct contact help solve relationship issues?

Are you experiencing relationship dilemmas? Are you having problems with a partner (partner of your heart or partner at work)? Are you going through a divorce? Are your children rebelling? Are you unsure of whether to accept a proposal (such as move in with someone, marry your fiance, or accept a job offer)? Is your roommate untidy?  Did someone lie to you? Are you in a dispute with your boss?  Did your sister rat you out? Has your friend gone silent?

Like advice columns of old, Harmony Keys is the place where you can anonymously lay your problems on the table.  Dr. Joan will listen and aid you as you sort it out. Her goal is to help you identify solutions and guide you toward new ways of looking at issues.

A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's stories about fractured relationships and how people mend them. Her new novel is a work of historical fiction about two Irish families who immigrate to Utah in the early 1900s. Gra Im Thu! I Love You! is a story about how to build tolerance and respect for others when diversity of thought abounds, even in the delicate areas of religion and politics!  One family is Catholic, the other is Mormon, and even Methodists are in the mix. Politically, some support non-militant means to obtain Irish indedence from the British Crown, while others believe in militant methods.

Please join the conversation.  You'll be glad you did!
