"Dr. Bordieri was exceptionally effective in helping us implement more effective couples dialogue strategies and in enhancing our ability to identify and validate our partner's needs. The impact she had in improving our relationship in such a short period of time was extraordinary."
"My husband and I completed Dr. Bordieri's private premarital program and can't thank her enough for the resources, patience and guidance she provided for us. We didn't know what to expect from premarital counseling, we just knew that we wanted to be able to have dialogue around important relationship/life topics before we got married. All the resources and tools that were provided was so informative but we most appreciated how Dr. Bordieri explained each concept in an easily understandable way. Her kind nature and ability to listen and repeat our thoughts/needs in a clear manner was amazing, especially since we are still working on how to identify emotions (sounds easy but it's not always!). As she got to know us as a couple, the program was tailored and she was able to shift even day-of if we mentioned specific challenges that came up since the last session. We found it very comforting/motivating that she and the studies confirm the challenges we are going through are VERY common and can be worked through. We have improved our communication and understanding of each other's emotions greatly since completing the program. We really can't recommend premarital counseling with Dr. Bordieri enough"
"We went through many therapists without any improvement and were skeptical if there were any therapists out there who could help us. Regina was absolutely phenomenal and helped strengthen our marriage. I absolutely recommend her."
