I understand.

I can help.


My name is Bri McCarroll.

I specialize in helping couples just like you.


Having tools to manage the distance and/or conflicts in the relationship.

Communicating on a deeper, more authentic, level.

Resolving the ‘big’ issues that you can’t talk about now without getting into a conflict.

Understanding WHY you are disconnecting so you can do things differently.

Your relationship doesn’t have time for weekly couples therapy sessions.

You and your relationship need tools NOW.

I AGREE. Due to that,

I do things VERY differently

Watch this video to learn what I do.

Your treatment is not spaced across weeks and months.

Over two days, you learn tools that would normally take four months of therapy. I help you in a small group or privately.


Couples and Marriage Workshops Online

My “Hold Me Tight Workshops®” are an ideal option for couples who are wanting to learn skills to improve their relationships. This is an educational program and is not therapy.

These two-day Workshops are often taken when a couples feels ‘stuck’ in their couples therapy or as a ‘last chance’ effort to see if change is even possible.

In the comfort of your home, you will learn tools to effectively connect and communicate in your relationship. Curious how you will have privacy yet still have a traditional Hold Me Tight Workshop® experience?

Intensive Couples Therapy & Retreats

Private marriage and couples retreats allow you to work on your relationship intensely and gain effective results and change quickly. A couples therapist works with you to teach you tools to improve your relationship and also address obstacles challenging your relationship.

After two days, you have the tools and skills that change how you connect and communicate.

Couples See Me for Different Reasons

Possibly you have tried couples therapy before and you did not get the results you wanted.

You will be ‘trying something different’ with me.

Maybe you and your couples therapist are in a ‘stuck’ place; that happens.

This will accelerate your progress. Afterwards, I collaborate with your therapist to keep you moving forward.

Lastly, maybe you or your partner don’t want therapy at all. You have tried to fix your relationship yourselves and realize you need outside help.

You will start to communicate more effectively within our first three hours together.
