About Tami Chelew

“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love,” Tim Robbins

As a San Diego marriage therapist, I have been involved with teaching and speaking on marriage and family relationship issues for the past 25 years.  I regularly teach other licensed Marriage & Family Therapists in the area . I speak at different churches, parenting groups, marriage seminars, women’s events and couples retreats throughout the greater San Diego area and do some traveling.  Most topics work well with both faith and secular groups. I have been married to my best friend for over thirty years and we have two grown daughters.
