Online Premarital Counseling
Premarital counseling is focused on prevention and enhancing the positive qualities of the relationship.
It’s important to set the groundwork of effective communication from the beginning.
Too many couples jump into marriage thinking they can just figure it out on their own and are shocked at how hard things feel after the honeymoon is over.
Many couples develop toxic communication patterns or stop communicating at all and slowly slip further and further away from the loving, compassionate, relationship they used to have.
Much of this is preventable by learning some basic strategies and tools for making a marriage work from the beginning.
Premarital counseling with me involves assessment, education and guidance to prepare you for a long lasting and happy marriage.

Why Is It Important To Get Expert Advice?
When your car is broken do you try to fix it yourself? No, because you don’t have the proper training! You bring it to people who have been trained to diagnose and fix the specific issue your car is having. Just because you have been driving a car for years doesn’t mean you know how to fix it. Well, just because you’ve been in relationships for years doesn’t mean you have the training and knowledge needed to diagnose and treat the issues you are having. Sometimes it’s hard to see the solution when you are emotionally invested in the outcome. We can help get you back on track.
The Impact of Couples Counseling
Having issues doesn’t mean your relationship is broken beyond repair. When you leave one relationship for another, you are often just trading one set of incompatibilities for another. Most of us are operating from unconscious beliefs about love & relationships that we developed in childhood. We tend to pick partners who can trigger us in the same way that our caretakers disappointed us as children. So even if you leave your current relationship, you may find yourself repeating the same dynamic with different partners if you don’t heal the core issues. Therapy can help shift these patterns once and for all.

Initially I was very hesitant about asking my significant other to do couples therapy because it wasn’t something we would normally do. We had hit a speed bump in our relationship and I didn’t know what to do and felt lost. I couldn’t ask my friends since they tend to be biased. That’s when I found Sarah’s page randomly looking through Google. Finding this page and meeting Sarah is one of the best things that has helped our relationship! Sarah showed both of us things we didn’t know about ourselves and ways to work on ourselves as well as our relationship. Now we’ve both learned how to take consideration in each other and have never been better! Thanks Sarah! If you are hesitant, don’t be! I’m glad we took the leap!
Dr. Schewitz was my therapist for almost a year and I am so grateful to have found her! I was drawn to Dr. Schewitz due to her focus on relationships. I knew part of the depression I’d been dealing with related to relationships and she has definitely helped me here.
Dr. Schewitz listens but doesn’t just sit there passively. She was great about guiding me to my own conclusions and dismantling counterproductive behaviors in a way that isn’t dominating. She shares outside resources for me to take my growth and development as far as I want and in the directions that appeal to me.
I’ve had good and bad therapists in the past and so I do appreciate the quality of care as described above. I think I felt like I had found the right therapist for me when I realized how flexible she is in offering support to her patients. It’s not a “one size fits all” approach to therapy and so I really trust her perspective. I would recommend Dr. Schewitz because I know no matter where I’m at in life (and what I’m dealing with), she can be a great resource.
My fiance and I had such a great experience working with Sarah for our premarital counseling. Getting premarital counseling is a requirement for couples getting married through our church, so we went into it not really knowing what to expect and not sure what we would get out of it. But I’m so glad we found Sarah, because we ended up coming away with really great tools for communication, thought-provoking conversations, and feeling more excited to get married than ever. Plus, we now have our go-to counselor if we ever encounter any issues in our marriage and need a tune up. I would recommend Sarah to anyone.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
In short, no but it’s also more complicated than that. We do accept PPO insurance as an out of network provider. What that means is you pay your therapist directly after each session and then we submit a receipt for services (called a superbill) to your insurance for you at the end of every month. Once the claim is accepted, your insurance will mail you a check for the amount they agree to reimburse for out of network providers. To learn more about your specific plan, call your insurance company to inquire about your out of network benefits. Want to learn more about why most therapists don’t take insurance? Read more
What services do you provide?
We provide individual therapy, couples therapy, premarital counseling and coaching via an online service called Zoom. Sessions are typically once per week or every other week. We offer 50 minute sessions for individuals and the option of either 50 or 80min sessions for couples therapy.
Can me and my partner connect from different places?
Yep! That is one of the many benefits of online therapy. When you book an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link. Just send the link to your partner and he or she can connect by clicking the same link. All 3 of us will be in a video chat together and we all can see each other at the same time.
What is the cost of working with Couples Learn?
Our session rates are comparable with doctoral level specialist psychologists in Los Angeles. Please setup a free 30 minute consultation to learn more about the rates for the specific services you are seeking.
Do you have evening appointments?
Yes. Our last appointment is at 6pm but evening time slots are reserved for current clients only which is why you don’t see them on the schedule when booking a free consultation. Most people find they can do the 30 min consult during work hours. Then, if you become a client, you can schedule an evening appointment. If you are doing a consult for couples therapy, it is fine if you and your partner are in separate locations for the consult. You can both just click the link and we will all be in the same video chat.
Are online couples therapy and individual therapy sessions as good as in-person?
Yes! Online therapy is just as effective as meeting in person. All the nuances of facial expressions and nonverbal communication can be seen through video just as they can in person. Our clients love that they do not have to allocate time to travel to and from an office, and deal with traffic or parking. Our clients also say having sessions from home makes it more comfortable for them to open up and be vulnerable.
Does what we talk about in session remain confidential?
Absolutely. Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and therapist. If you choose to become our clients, no one knows you are our clients and no one knows anything you talk about except you and your therapist.
Is your practice inclusive of all types of clients?
Absolutely! Same sex couples, LGBTQ individuals, non-binary individuals and couples living alternative lifestyles (i.e. polyamorous, kink, BDSM, etc.) are all are welcome.
How do we know if we need couples therapy?
Odds are, if you’re considering it, you probably needed it a long time ago. Most couples wait way too long to seek help. Unfortunately, the longer you have been fighting in unproductive ways and building up resentment, the harder it is to turn things around. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible by any means but, the sooner you get help, the better chance you have of saving your relationship.
Many young couples think that if they need couples therapy before they are married, there is something seriously wrong and they should just break up. This is not true! Having relationship challenges does not mean it isn’t meant to be. It just means you need to build some skills in the communication and relationship department. That is what much of couples therapy is about; teaching you stuff that will benefit you for the rest of your life – whether you end up staying together or not.
