“My wife and I came here for pre-marital counseling and we were very happy with our experience. We were able to book an appointment within a few days of calling. Our counselor was experienced, attentive, and gave us good tips for dealing with stress and preparing for the future. Would highly recommend!”

“Jason & I are engaged and wanted to do some pre-marital couples work to make sure we are on happy and fulfilled footing prior to the big day. Since neither of us are religious, I wanted to find something nice and science based that was secular. I found the Couples Center on yelp and thought it sounded promising – and signed us up to do a pre-marital workshop over a weekend in Tiburon! We live in San Francisco, so we just got a zip car and headed over each day.
This workshop was SO GOOD. I cannot even describe it. It is set up as a series of small lectures, followed by exercises with your partner. As a person who works in tech, I have been to my fair share of workshops, and this is the only one I’ve ever been to where the time just flies by and I felt like I was constantly learning and growing.”

“Writing this review was important to me, which is why I tried writing it a few times in my head before I just let myself start typing. My partner and I met and started working with Gal nine months ago. I chose to work with Gal as I believed he was similar in background and culture to my partner. I remember walking into the conference room of my office during our initial phone call and trying to communicate that I felt like we needed urgent help. Gal did a great job of explaining to me that change does not happen immediately but that he would be happy to help us through pre-marital counseling.
I am writing this review for a number of reasons, most important of which is if we had not met Gal and The Couple’s Center, there is a large likelihood that we would not be engaged today. It was a challenging process where I was forced to let in the possibility that therapy would not end in a happy outcome. I always feel that Gal is fair and objective while still understanding how tied up we are in our emotions.”

“My fiance and I had pre-marital counseling on our wedding list as a “nice-to-have”. Having completed their ‘Love made simple’ weekend workshop, I think it’s an absolute *must* for all couples as they grow in their relationship.
Attending the workshop helped me understand my partner’s needs, but also helped me uncover my own needs (I thought I knew myself really well). Thier exercises help each partner re-examine themselves, their expectations and the sources of those expectations. They also help navigate what to do with each new discovery.
The most important factor is that each participant comes in with an open, trusting and loving heart. I recommend working with Gal and Liron at each major milestone in a relationship – Marriage/Long term commitment, raising children, etc.”
