You Wonder “What Happened to Us?”
Communication has broken down to the point that it can feel like a minefield when you try to talk. As you grow increasingly distant, neither of you feels appreciated nor understood. You both feel alone, not knowing how to connect and feeling hopeless.
Thoughts of “I am not good enough”, “I am going to end up alone”, “My partner isn’t there for me” or “Our relationship just can’t be fixed” swim in your head.
You Want a Healthy Relationship
You long for easy communication again, so you feel heard and understood by your partner, able to resolve conflicts effectively, and experiencing mutual respect. Naturally, you want to feel connected emotionally, knowing your partner ‘has your back’ and that you are on the same team. And you wish for a physical connection that feels fun and welcomed.
I thought we would leave here with tools, but not with this renewal…this awakening. I feel like we made huge strides…a deeper connection. This is an investment, it’s a lifetime investment. It’s the best investment I have ever made.”Savannah, Private Retreat attendee, 2019
I Help You Feel Emotionally Connected Again
There are no guarantees in life, but I can promise that during your Private Retreat or Intensive, you will:
- communicate to a depth you have not experienced with your partner before.
- understand what is happening behind the conflicts and how to stop them.
- connect with your partner in an amazing and authentic manner.
- address and repair hurts that have seemed impossible to heal.
Your Couples Therapy Retreat will be Evidence-based and Successful
Dr. Sue Johnson developed Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT); this is the basis of my Private Retreats. EFT has a 90% success rate at reducing distress in couples. Based on her research, she determined that successful couples benefit from engaging in specific seven conversations. These conversations are now the basis of her Workshop protocol, “Hold Me Tight®”.
Here is a helpful podcast with Dr. Sue Johnson. In it, she speaks specifically about the science and philosophy behind EFT and “Hold Me Tight®”.

I had high expectations, maybe higher than most and they were definitely met. What exceeded was how you were really able to custom tailor the Workshop…I like how you were able to adjust on the fly. Your level of engagement is very different than a typical couples therapy session. Here, you are able to dig in and you are PRESENT… This helped us resolve longstanding issues that weren’t resolving themselves and were pushing us further apart. You were able to get right into it and solve it”Todd, Private Retreat attendee, 2019
