About me, Sarah Oswald

Supporting humans in having superb relationships is my favorite thing in the world to do. I am lit up by this work-- from the inside out. You can feel this joy while working with me. My presence, both as a wedding officiant and couples coach, is grounded and loving. I believe that your wedding ceremony can represent WHO YOU ARE as a couple. I also believe it's an ideal opportunity to weave a web of connection throughout your community. I love collaborating with you to creatively make each of these things possible. I would be honored to work with you!

SPECIAL OFFER

I am moved to offer support during this isolating time in the best way I know how. Being sequestered at home can put extra strain on our relationships. As a couples therapist, I am opening one 50-minute video session per day on a donate-what-you’re-able scale. You can read about my style here: https://www.sarahoswald.org/couples-therapy

If you and your partner feel this would be supportive, please email me at [email protected] with a brief description of what you are struggling with, along with 3 days & times you are both available (and include your timezone). Use the subject line: Partnership Support from Wedding Wire

I hope you are each staying healthy and finding ways to maintain connection with community— even if it needs to be virtual!

Also being younger and about to be a mom, she felt more relatable than some of the older women and men we'd seen. As a man, project manager / engineer, I would've probably appreciated a little more agenda-driven, workbook approach with take homework that we brought back the next visit.
