"We started going to Carolyn soon after we got engaged. We agreed that premarital counseling was an excellent opportunity to strengthen the relationship before the big day. We weren't having any problems or anything when we went in, but nonetheless Carolyn has helped us see our way through hectic wedding planning, major career decisions, and helped us uncover some of the little details that shape our personalities and impact our relationship both positively and negatively. Carolyn has helped us grow closer during one of the busiest times in our lives and we're incredibly grateful. Thanks, Carolyn!"
