Private couples retreats with an internationally recognized relationship expert.

What do you do if you are married (or in a committed relationship) but you consistently don’t feel heard?

Or when you have grown apart and the distance seems so wide that you fear it will take way too much work and you don’t see evidence this is going to change?

Does it seem like you can’t stop the negative cycle of anger, blame, arguments and withdrawal?

Are you so busy that you don’t take time for each other and your relationship is starving for affection, romance and/or passion?

Or perhaps you are wishing to deepen the relationship, the closeness and the intimacy that once made your relationship so special.

When any of these occur, it’s time to make some important changes in your relationship. A change where the two of you are able to effectively communicate, work through conflicts in a skilled way and be able to be genuinely affectionate with each other.

A transformational retreat creates an environment where you feel listened to, valued and empathized with. A safe space where you are able to talk through conflicts, disagreements and hurt feelings, and come to an agreement that both of you are pleased with. A transformational experience that allows you to right the wrongs of the past and repair breeches of trust. You can then rekindle a relationship in which each partners’ happiness and the well-being is valued and cherished.

Different types of retreats are offered and you can choose the one that fits your needs best. The shortest is a VIP “boot camp” one day retreat for those that need urgent repair for their relationship right away. Others range from 2-7 days. A relationship retreat will likely be the most important step you can take to repair your marriage and rekindle your love–all outside of your everyday context.

A retreat is much quicker than marriage counseling 

This intensive weekend or weekday retreat offers you the opportunity to repair hurt, anger, lack of communication, breaches of trust or disconnection much more rapidly than weekly marriage counseling sessions. The retreat is usually done in 5-hour days, although some couples prefer to go 6-7 hours. So, a 4-day retreat covers the same ground as 20 weekly one-hour appointments. That’s the equivalent of almost 5 months of weekly counseling sessions, all in 4 days. For any relationship in crisis, anger or hurt, it’s a remarkably quicker way to repair what’s wrong.

Frequently a couple who has been together for a while slowly loses their closeness, their friendship, the excitement of being together and their passion for each other. Everyday busy lives, children, conflicts, disagreements, hurtful words, angry fights, threats, betrayals of trust and emotional withdrawal begin to damage the closeness and the connection between a couple who was once extremely close and connected.

One of the most positive results of a marriage retreat is the renewal of closeness, the regeneration of connection and the reopening of communication channels. I will guide you to learn and practice powerful ways of effectively communicating with each other, as well as indispensable techniques in how to resolve conflicts, disagreements or hurt feelings. Our goal is for your relationship to regain the connection, trust and closeness you once had, and to strengthen the bond between the two of you.

I have two main goals during your marriage retreat. The first is to help the two of you regain your closeness and connection. The second is to instruct you about what we are doing and how, so you will be able to resolve issues on your own, and you hopefully won’t need additional professional help in the future.

A marriage retreat typically lasts anywhere from 2-6 days, with 3-4 days being typical. The length of your retreat will depend on the severity of the issues in your relationship and how much time you can spend with me.

Besides retreats for individual couples, I offer twice a year a retreat for a small group of couples in a special first class location. These are always high energy, fun, educational, and highly appreciated experiences. If you want to be kept informed of upcoming opportunities register for my newsletter and you will see what’s coming up.

If you are having constant conflicts, have lost your connection and loving feelings, are separated, have had an affair, are planning to divorce, or are seeing your marriage crumble for some other reason -  then the Urgent Relationship Repair Intensive is for you!

This intensive weekend or weekday retreat offers you the opportunity to repair hurt, anger, lack of communication, breaches of trust or disconnection much more rapidly than weekly marriage counseling sessions. The retreat is usually done in 5-hour days, although some couples prefer to go 6-7 hours. So, a 4-day retreat covers the same ground as 20 weekly one-hour appointments. That’s the equivalent of almost 5 months of weekly counseling sessions, all in 4 days. For any relationship in crisis, anger or hurt, it’s a remarkably quicker way to repair what’s wrong.

There is also a one day version intensive experience which is a combination of exploration of where your relationship is now and what got you here. A "First aid" measure, planning session, and jumpstart launch are combined to get you fast out of crisis mode. It's like a visit to the ER. It will help stabilize the fight or flight automatic response to crisis so you can make rational decisions. It's the perfect beginning to a 4-6 month individually tailored relationship coaching program.  

The Urgent Marriage Repair Intensive is scheduled on an as-needed basis due to the personal nature of the marriage situation.  Times are available either during the week, or over a weekend. The program is totally tailored to your needs. It ranges from 1/2 a day to a whole weekend. At my home, in my comfortable meeting room, or at a retreat type location. Your choice!

I also developed recently a virtual version, so that you can do this challenge from the comfort of your own home. You can learn more about the details, or you can book a complimentary exploration session with me:
