Relationship Help

Tamsen's degree in Psychology and graduate studies in Clinical Counseling came in handy when writing the book Meeting Your Match Online: The Complete Guide to Internet Dating and Dating Services. Her fifth full-length book is a guide to flourishing in a long-distance relationship, which is a topic she knows plenty about; her husband was active duty military and frequently deployed.
