Welcome. Many of you know that the subject of being a twin is a very large part of my life. First, I am a twin; second, I am the mother of twins; third, I specialize in twin issues in my psychotherapy practice; and fourth, I am the author of two books on the subject: Emotionally Healthy Twins and The Same But Different.
And there is so much to talk about. According to a January 2012 report by the National Center for Health Statistics, the rate of twin births rose 76 percent from 1980 to 2009. In 2009, one out of thirty births was a twin birth.
So if you are a twin or the parents, grandparents, or spouse of a twin, I’m here to provide information and support. I hope you will find helpful advice, emotional validation, and psychological insights you can use to understand and improve your relationship with the twin in your life. Most importantly, I hope you will let me know what you think. Please feel free to post a comment on what I’ve written, share your personal experience of being or knowing a twin, or ask a question. I’d love to hear from you.
