Our 2-Day marriage retreat is receiving enthusiastic reviews from couple after couple who have worked with us.  From newlyweds just starting out, to couples who needed to get out of a rut, to couples on the brink of divorce.  

We teach you how to look at your issues and understand them in a new way, based on the solid science of Emotionally Focused Therapy.  We use popular movie and TV clips to illustrate our model and demonstrate how to start making your relationship better - with tools that you can start to use immediately. 

We give you time to work on your own issues in private, with therapists standing by if you need them. We have developed highly effective exercises to get you moving in the right direction – quickly. 

You will never be put on the spot.  We don’t believe in shaming or blaming.  You will never have to share anything personal unless you want to.  Our marriage retreat is all about safety, understanding, and validation. 

You really can have a happy marriage and a happy future - together.  Give your relationship this amazing gift – 2 days of understanding and transformation.  Of repair and renewal.  Of putting the past in the past and looking forward to an incredible, loving future.  Of falling in love all over again. 

Highly effective cutting edge science.  Seasoned therapists. Down to earth program.  Tools to start using immediately.  Provided in a safe, relaxed, shame free, blame free and fun environment.  REGISTER NOW.

All couples are welcome regardless of marital status, age, faith, race, or sexual orientation.

"You are two talented and skilled therapists who ran a terrific workshop.  When we needed extra help,

you were able to encourage, nudge and prod, past comfort, but always with a warmth and kindness"

Our marriage retreat is based on the most successful model of couples therapy available today – Emotionally Focused Therapy – time tested and researched for over 25 years.  We get to the heart of the matter – down to the core emotions and behaviors that are needed to create a loving relationship, and the things that often go wrong that drive conflict and block closeness.  We help you understand your partner... and yourself, and why you do the things you do.  And we show you how to change negative patterns and make things better – right away. 

Our marriage retreat is led by two highly trained and experienced therapists who have completed rigorous training to become certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy and who specialize in helping couples improve their marriage – true relationship experts.  We know how to create happy relationships, and how to fix them and get them back on track.

Here’s what you will learn:​

What all relationships need to be healthy, happy and successful

How to find forgiveness, overcome past hurts and move forward

How to understand what drives conflict - and how to change it    

How to communicate effectively and feel deeply heard

How to rebuild broken trust, safety and security​

How to create and nurture emotional intimacy
