Framework Marriage Counseling 


Marriage counseling benefits everyone!  Whether your relationship is in crisis or needs a little boost, I am here for you. After many years working with couples, I have zeroed in on 12 of the most fundamental skills (Frames) needed for a happy, healthy partnership.Coincidentally, they spell out the word L.O.V.E.R.S.

Looking through the lens of each Frame, I help guide couples towards creating the Picture within the Frame that is just right for them. 

Begin with a free 20 minute phone introductory session to ask questions and get to know my therapy style. If you like what you hear, we can schedule the first appointment. Schedule once a week, every other week, or whatever fits your schedule. The more you practice the better you become L.O.V.E.R.S. 

Sessions are held with marriage therapist Janice Shapiro, LMFT via video conferencing or in person. Framework Marriage Counseling gets to the core of what it takes for a happy, committed relationship. 

Fees are the same rate as for Individuals and families. Each session is one hour.

After gaining proficiency as L.O.V.E.R.S. you will be able to renew your vows TO HAVE AND TO HOLD.

TO HAVE is a promise to receive each OTHER with unconditional acceptance. ​

TO HOLD is a promise of physical affection and tenderness, a vow to be available in body and soul, a promise to cherish, value and protect each OTHER forever.
