• The Marriage Guides

    Sam and Kerri Moehlenpah, LMFT’s

    LMFT37887 & LMFT41949

    We are Sam and Kerri, the duo behind the Marriage Guides. We love our family and our life and our home. We have been married twenty-four years. We are parents to three incredibly gifted children who challenge us daily and who we love madly and do our best to parent through every stage of life.


    We have a dog, a cat and three goats. We love the Marvel Universe movies {all of our animals have Marvel themed names}, black coffee, chips and salsa, the perfect french fry, working together, and dreaming about our future. We actively seek adventure and believe that memories of shared experiences is what makes life rich and worthwhile.


    We fiercely seek connection with each other. We believe that deeper intimacy comes with communication and the understanding that we are a team. Being licensed therapists doesn’t mean we have the perfect marriage {which many people ask us about} it means that we see the pitfalls and utilize our skills and training to avoid, constructively work through, and process issues through to connection.


    We are both licensed Marriage and Family Therapists who have been in private practice for more than 20 years. The Marriage Guides represent a desire to think outside the box and offer something unique and special for couples. This approach allows us to combine our passion for positively impacting marriages with our dream and desire to work together, not just as colleagues, but as teammates!


    Sam graduated from Western Seminary in Los Gatos, CA with his degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 1998. Kerri graduated from Bethel Seminary in San Diego, CA with her degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2001. Both Sam and Kerri have completed Level 1, 2, & 3 of the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. Together they founded their private practice called Thrive at Home in 2013.
