What creates healthy, satisfying love?

This is a different kind of relationship book. Acclaimed relationship therapist Dr. Keith Witt presents five key questions that serve as a baseline for understanding why we know so much about intimacy, yet still have to struggle so hard to be consistently fulfilled. In an intriguing, conversational journey based on real-life experiences of his own life and the many couples he has successfully counseled, he offers clarity and exercises for dealing with the inevitable problems arise in all the common areas such as, sex, choosing superior partners, self-care, communication., dealing with crises,  parenting, managing finances with another person, balancing personal passions and purpose with the demands of intimacy, and spirituality.

“In Loving Completely, Keith Witt does a masterful job integrating mind, body, heart, and spirit into a comprehensive guide to making real relationships better, more dynamic, and alive. Rather than being stuck in one system, Keith's wide-ranging knowledge and practical experience help you find a path to relationship health that's right for you. You'll discover not only where you're doing well in your relationship, but also uncover (and heal) the tricky places where you might be getting stuck. A perfect book to help you thrive in your relationship, and life in general.” – Neil Sattin, relationship coach and host of the podcast “Relationship Alive!”

“I've had the privilege of knowing and working with Dr. Keith Witt in many capacities for over 10 years.  He is unquestionably the 'real deal', as therapist, integral teacher and husband/lover.  He's written many wonderful books, but for me, this one comes directly from the heart of his particular brilliance and commitment to love.  As you read this book, there is a palpable transmission for anyone wanting to embody long lasting, evolving love.  Loving Completely embraces and helps us to navigate our complicated humanity and get deeper access to the divinity from which real love arises.  Our collective future needs us to prioritize love and devote ourselves together to learning exactly what Keith is teaching us.” – Patricia Albere, Founder of the Evolutionary Collective, Bestselling author of Evolutionary Relationships: Unleashing the Power of Mutual Awakening

Dr. Keith Witt has contributed another masterpiece to all who wish to find mastery in loving. His elegant 5 Star Question approach to relationships is a blueprint for marital success. If you approach intimacy as a path for growth and the evolution of consciousness then you have chosen the right teacher and the right book to read.” – Dr. Keesha Ewers, bestselling author of Solving the Autoimmune Puzzle and founder of the Academy for Integrative Medicine

“Dr. Keith Witt distills the field’s best research findings, relationship principles and wisdom into a powerful, yet simple guide. Loving Completely gives you the insight and practices to help you discover profound love and superior intimacy.”   – Dr. Jessica Higgins, Empowered Relationship Podcast
