Your relationship feels stuck

You are losing hope that things can be better.

It’s exhausting and discouraging…trying to figure out what to do differently.

You want to make it better, but…


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.

You may think traditional weekly couples therapy is the only solution.


Although weekly therapy can be helpful…

I do things VERY differently

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 privately or in a small group.

Intensive Couples Therapy

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 and Marriage Workshops

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.

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.

Based on the Science and Research

Our work is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy, which has a 90% success rate in reducing stress in couples relationships. That, combined with Dr. Sue Johnson’s “Hold Me Tight®” protocol, addresses your communication breakdowns and brings emotional connection back into your relationship.

I have successfully helped couples over 20 years. I have seen what works.
