Couples Services


Every relationship is different, but all couples struggle with connecting and communicating at times.  I help couples in the following ways:

  • Private Couples Retreats

  • Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshops

  • Couples Coaching

If you are on this page, you are probably considering traditional couples therapy.  Nonetheless, I strongly encourage you to consider my Private Couples Retreats or my Couples Workshops.  I consistently see them as the quickest and most cost effective solution for improving  your relationship. 


Private Couples Retreats

Who it’s for?  Couples struggling with ongoing communication issues and one (or both) partners are burning-out.     

These Retreats are ideal for couples who:

  • Feel lonely, stuck, and hopeless in their relationship 
  • Experienced significant damage in their relationship, such as an affair
  • Are exhausted from trying and are considering couples treatment as a ‘last chance’
  • Needing to see significant change quickly

I help you with:

  • Feeling ‘seen’, ‘heard’ and connected with your partner
  • Understanding the dysfunctional patterns you get stuck in
  • Learning the science behind relationships and applying it to yours. 
  • Interacting in a manner to bring your partner closer, rather than pushing him/her away
