All Loving Marriage, LLC website products created by Geoff Steurer are final sales and are non-refundable.
Loving Marriage, LLC occasionally partners as an affiliate with other businesses. For example, we are an affiliate with Amazon.

Please understand that we do not market on behalf of Amazon or any other affiliate. We only share books, products, and resources that we support, use and believe in and we do not sell to clients or non-clients. If you choose to purchase a product on this website, or if you choose to purchase a product on another website where we provide the link, you agree to assume full responsibility for using the information on this site, and you understand and agree that Loving Marriage, LLC and its employees, associates or affiliates, are not responsible or liable for any claim, loss, or damage resulting from its use by you or any user.

Restrictions on Use of Materials
While we believe the information, products, materials, resources, services and documents provided on and through the Site to be factual and accurate, but we cannot guarantee that they are. The information, products, materials, resources, services and documents on this Site are not intended to be a substitute for legal, financial, professional medical or mental health advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical or mental health condition or treatment.

Because you may be residing in a different part of the country, and the law varies by state, as the law is constantly changing, it is important to understand that it affects each individual and business in different ways. As a result, if you are seeking services or products to support you or your business, it is recommended to seek outside financial and/or legal counsel relating to your specific circumstances as needed. If you have legal and financial questions or concerns, it is advisable to consult with your tax accountant or lawyer for all questions and concerns you have, may have, or hereafter have regarding any and all information, products and services presented or sold by Loving Marriage, LLC website, products, services and programs pertaining to your specific legal or financial situation.
Clinical Guarantees for Healing
No therapist or counselor can guarantee results for a therapy client. Results may vary depending upon what the client is seeking therapy for, how they, the client, approach the treatment recommendations, how they, the client, engage in the clinical process, how they, the client, follow the treatment plan, and what specific and unique issues and challenges they, the client, bring into the clinical relationship. Clients should not base their expectations of their particular therapy experience with any counselor associated with Loving Marriage, LLC, or their particular healing, results and any other therapy expectations, based on the testimonials provided on this website, or any other information they have received about Loving Marriage, LLC beyond their own individual experience. Each individual will have a different result based on their unique experience.
It is unethical and illegal for a therapist to solicit testimonials from a client. Thus, all testimonials provided on this website are the direct request from former clients who had asked Loving Marriage, LLC to specifically include their remarks here. Prior to inclusion on the website, these requests have been processed with the client, meaning, there has been a thorough discussion and a clinical assessment by the Founding Director before including the testimonial. Additionally, even if asked by the client to do so, Loving Marriage, LLC will not include any identifying information [e.g. age, gender, city, initials, names] for the purpose of maintaining client confidentiality. Clients also understand that at any point they may request that their testimonial be removed. Clients also understand that should they return for further counseling, their kind words will be removed from the website in order to maintain the highest level of integrity around boundaries as supporting all aspects of the clinical relationship and client is the most important part of the work of every Loving Marriage, LLC therapist.
