Getting someone you love into therapy

We have all watched James Bond movies. Maybe you grew up with Sean Connery back when 007 was brought to the big screen. Or maybe, like me, you grew up watching Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye or Tomorrow Never Dies (and maybe you even played the GoldenEye video game). Or Maybe Daniel Greig is your James Bond and you think every other actor doesn’t measure up to him. Whichever camp you fall into there are a few things about James Bond that are always true. He always has a license to kill, he always is a womanizer, he always carries a Walther PPK (It like a million other guns, most notable P99) and he always does things on his own.
