Having a life coaching background (Coach U) I love working with couples who want to start their relationship off on solid ground. This is an optional service I offer separate from the ceremony and it is tailored to fit your needs. Together we will look at what is working for you, what you love about your relationship, and where you see yourself going, what you see in your future, and how we can get there. I will give you fun "homework" to do together and help you to feel you are getting the best possible start to your relationship.
My partner Liz and I went through pre-marital counseling with Cindie about once a month for the months leading up to our wedding and we both really valued Cindie’s advice. Cindie was very flexible and easy to work with. After working with Cindie to identify our counseling goals, she tailored specific homework assignments for us to help us improve communication, identify patterns, and solve problems by reducing the frequency of triggers. We met monthly to discuss how the homework assignments went and what we got out of completing them, but the frequency of the meetings was very flexible. She was very responsive via email, and always responded within a day to all questions and concerns. She was also very easy to talk to and confide in with relationship issues.
Cindie loaned us her own copies of a plethora of different relationship books with advice, exercises, and sometimes just good wedding ideas. She really wanted to help us achieve our relationship goals. Cindie helped us identify and reduce potential problem relationship patterns and her counseling provided a forum for us to process and address them before we were married. We would recommend Cindie to anyone searching for premarital counseling. ~ Sara
