Wedding Planning Group Therapy

The New Year is here and along comes bright beginnings! I am taking my 10 years of Marriage Family Therapy and my 18 years of Wedding Planning and creating Wedding Planning Group Therapy for anyone navigating the wedding planning journey.What happens: every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, attendees come together in a group setting (circle time with others going through the same journey) to discuss their fears, anxiety, challenges, and joys of getting to “I do”. I would be the facilitator to keep the group on track and growing.Please share the news with your brides, grooms or couples. My hope is to keep fears, anxiety and “family issues” to a minimum by giving the group a space to share…and in return, you can better enjoy what you love to do!!!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try
to get the hang of it!
