Workshops & Private Couples Intensives

  Getting the Love You Want Workshops This intensive two day Imago therapy workshop will help you create a more intimate connection with your significant other. Imago Therapy is based on the book Getting The Love You Want by Harville Hendrix (see Oprah’s website for more info about Imago Relationship therapy.) This workshop can help you…..

  • If you want to be closer to your partner,
  • If you are starting a new relationship,
  • If you are healing a conflict in your marriage.

We will use written exercise, guided imagery and lecture and demonstrations. Alone with your partner you will practice communication skills, and do safe, confidential work together. Practice skills needed for long term happiness in a safe and confidential environment with a Certified Imago Therapist….. Next workshop:  TBA

Sex, Intimacy and Connection Workshops In a safe workshop setting experience authentic communication to create intimacy and connection with your partner.

  • Learn how to talk about sex openly
  • Decrease fear and anxiety
  • Increase loving feelings toward your partner

Many couples breathe a sigh of relief after learning how to talk about their fantasies and fears, and the exercises in these workshops will benefit new relationships and recreate passion in long term partnerships. Next workshop:  TBA

Intensives Intensives are private psychotherapy sessions for couples who are traveling from out of town and cannot make it to weekly sessions, or want a more in-depth experience. Like a couples workshop, we explore intensive ways to increase the connection and intimacy in your relationship, resolve conflict, and work through shame, guilt and anger in your partnership. Working privately with a therapist for four to six hours, couples get the same benefit from the day of therapy that they would from a whole weekend of a couple workshop, sometimes creating dramatic and long lasting shifts in their relationship. Special issues and conflicts can be focused on in an Intensive such as:

  • Affair Recovery
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • ReSexualizing relationships
  • Grief Work
  • Pre-Marital Vision Quest
  • Second Marriage Preparation
  • Step Parent Coaching
