About Marianne

Marianne Marlow, MA, LMHC

Welcome, I’m Marianne Marlow and I’m the founder of This LoveWorks.

My clients count on me to curate the most innovative relationship research. Relationships are the basis of all our interactions and we need better ways of getting the most relevant, accessible, and understandable relationship information. My own dogged curiosity and interest in how people work, drives me to find what is the most useful and effective for you as a couple, a business owner, or a therapist.

After 15 years working with the largest tech companies in the country on corporate team development, I wanted to really understand what makes great relationships work. Now, as a relationship therapist for more than 20 years, I sit with couples during the most challenging times in their relationships. I ask questions that facilitate understanding, healing, and change.

I’ve studied with the foremost relationship coaches, researchers, and trauma experts to learn how to heal the nervous system and start the process of healing relationships. I personally study and implement the most proven, the most lasting, and the most secure psychological and spiritual relationship practices.

As a relationship therapist and coach, I listen and give you the tools to overcome limiting beliefs that keep you from achieving your most important relationship goals.

Through open and honest communication, I challenge people to acknowledge each other’s intrinsic wholeness and worth to cultivate strong, genuine connections. The work won’t always be easy but I trust you’ll come to the other side with the skills to build and maintain the relationships you desire in all areas of your life.
