013: A couple who recalibrate via counseling together - Mary & Chris

On this episode of Couple Collective, I interview a couple who recalibrate through counseling together. Chris was my college roommate and is now one of my best friends. He and his finance (now wife), Mary, discuss how they came out of the gates with NRE (new relationship energy), but when Chris pumped the breaks, they sought out counseling to recalibrate. This episode was recorded in August 2018 just before they got married on 9/1/19.

About the Podcast

Couple Collective
A podcast that captures the relationship journey of couples and singles. Episodes are geared towards listeners who are single or in a relationship, giving you an opportunity to learn from others, including therapists, about the elements that make romantic relationships work. My name is Julian A. Lewis II and I created this platform to learn how I can be successful in my romantic relationship. Through this journey I've learned a lot; mainly, I cannot replicate others experiences, but learn from them to create my own experiences. I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me. Much Love!
