 Can Brad & Tami can help you in your marriage? (F.A.Q.)

1. How do I know that Brad & Tami can understand and handle my marriage challenges?
We know how you feel.

You feel tired of working so hard on your marriage with little or no positive change. You certainly
want something to change, but you aren't sure what needs to change and you may not have the energy if you did know what needed to change.

You think, "Where did this all begin to go off track and down this lonely and difficult road?" And, "What if we can never get back to where we should be?"

We know how you feel for two reasons:
First, we have been there too. We had to work hard to discover bad relational habits, unlearn what we thought was true, and roll up our sleeves to do the work — because getting our marriage in a better place was what was best for us, our kids, our community, and most of all our God.
Second, we have used those skills and many more for over 25 years to help other couples climb out of the "dreadful marriage" pit into a much better place.

All of the statistics say that the two of us should no longer be married, let alone happily married, yet we beat those odds. And, if we can do it, then you can do it too and we can show you how.

Between the two of us, we have backgrounds in clinical psychology, pastoral counseling, marriage mentoring, church planting and church leadership, premarital counseling, and more.

—————

But still, your marriage challenges feel very unique to you. And even though they feel unique, your challenges are actually not entirely unique.

We have been working with couples for over 25 years and when we say that we have seen it all, we mean it. Here is an abbreviated list of the marriage challenges we have helped couples to work through:

  • Communication challenges
  • Conflict and tension in a marriage
  • Defensiveness
  • Intimacy struggles
  • Lying and trust issues
  • Different life goals
  • Parenting
  • Selfishness
  • Lack of support for each other
  • Unforgiveness
  • Infidelity
  • and more…
2. What is marriage coaching like?
We have always been big fans of marriage mentoring. We would define "marriage mentoring" as having another couple who is more experienced than you to come alongside you and your spouse to help you both see things you have missed and to help you see them from a fresh, new perspective — a perspective that is actually helpful.

Since we are used to working with couples from all over, we will likely conduct coaching sessions over Zoom video.

Sessions typically begin by following up on things that were discussed in the previous session and determining the benefit to your marriage. We will always unpack the things that were helpful and celebrate those together with you. After that, we will continue working on your marriage goals and reassessing your progress along the way.

When you reach your marriage goals, we may decide collectively that you are done or we may decide to reduce the frequency of our sessions together.
3. How much does marriage coaching cost?
We charge $200 per coaching hour, which we also refer to as a coaching session. Most of the time, we will prefer to work together on helping your marriage to thrive. This means the two of us will be meeting with the two of you.

You are likely contacting us about marriage coaching either because nothing else you have tried has improved your situation OR because someone you know has told you about the great work we do with couples.

If nothing else has worked, it may be precisely because you have tried your best
not to spend any money to get your marriage back on track — how has that worked for you so far? Maybe it's finally time for you to stop wasting time, get serious about living your best life with your spouse, and devote some time and money to getting the help your marriage needs to thrive.

If you have heard about us from someone else, we are humbled and honored. We work hard to help others have God-honoring marriages and every time we accomplish that, we all win! A wise fisherman once said, "A rising tides raise all ships." We think this applies well to marriages too.
4. Do Brad & Tami work with all couples?
At this time, we are only working with committed Christian couples. We feel strongly that Christians should have the best marriages and that this is where our time is best spent. We also feel strongly that our calling is to help others to honor God with and through their marriages.

When working with a committed Christian couple, there is a common language and a common motivation that we can tap into to help your marriage to thrive sooner than we could otherwise.

This is a win for all involved since we are working in our sweet spot to help you find yours again.

Whether you are newly married or have been married for over 50 years, if you are a committed Christian couple, we can help you to get back on track and to stay there.
5. How can we get started?
Below, you will find a Marriage Coaching Inquiry Form. Filling out this form will allow us to make sure that we have room on our schedule for you and that we are a good fit for each other.

Once we receive that form from you, we will typically get back to you in a few days. If we are a good fit for each other and have room on our coaching schedule, we will send you a link to fill out a consent form, to make an appointment on our online schedule, and to attach a credit card to that appointment for future payment. Attaching your credit card means more time for us to work together because there is less time fumbling with payment issues.

The consent form is required due to Tami's licensure as a Marriage & Family Therapist in the State of California. Rest assured, we have worked hard to make this simple for you. It takes most couples about 15 minutes to complete and submit the consent form and to make your first appointment with us.

What people are saying about us…


  • My husband has known Brad and Tami since he was a teen. Both have guided him through many challenging stages in his early 20s. We didn’t have to think twice when we chose Brad to marry us, and both him and Tami to provide premarital counseling. Often times there is a stigma to have a perfect marriage, Brad and Tami taught us how to embrace the imperfections and make our marriage perfect for "team us." Through their guidance and real life experiences, we have learned the necessary building blocks to a successful marriage.

    — Joey & Maloree Nigg


  • It's been hard for us to find credible marriage coaches. Most people talk a big game but can't deliver. Tandem Marriage is different. Brad and Tami are a real couple who have had real struggles. They overcame their struggles and did a great job and helping us with our struggles. I'd say they are the real deal. We received practical tools and practical help. We have never been happier or more content.

    — Matt and Susie Nikitin


  • We met Brad & Tami through our church when we were in a rough spot. We thought we needed some communication tools, but they helped us to realize that when our conversations get heated is when we get into trouble. Brad & Tami taught us how to recognize what was happening and how to keep it from happening. We are forever grateful and happy again.

    — Hunter McCall

If you haven't already scheduled one or more marriage coaching sessions online, you can do so here:

During our first session together, we will spend some time talking about where you currently are in your marriage and where you want to be. We want you both to be thinking about this and talking together about this before we meet. Remember, that the goal of two healthy spouses who want a great marriage, is not to think alike, but to think through things together. It's ok if you don't start with the same marriage goals — that's why we are here.

See you both soon!

Thanks a million!
