“Hold Me Tight”® Workshops for Couples

Who it’s designed for: Couples of all ages, cultures, genders and orientations who want to improve the quality of communication and connection in their relationships.

What it helps couples with:

  • Hearing the other person’s perspective to better understand his or her reactions so you can communicate from a place of compassion, not anger
  • Identifying the pattern you two engage in when you fight, allowing you to change that pattern, and then the result
  • Communicating in ways to avoid defenses and keep your partner emotionally close
  • Learning how to apologize so that your partner can forgive past hurts, thereby strengthening your connection
  • Sharing your most vulnerable feelings, knowing your partner is receptive to hearing them
