Try a Sexuality Couples Intensive Retreat

A private therapeutic setting, one-therapist devoted to helping one couple.
It gives you the space to really get to the bottom of why you aren't connecting...

An Intensive Couples Sex Therapy Retreat.

Without a passionate bond, problems set in. You start looking for attention from other attractive people. You are vulnerable to emotional or sexual affairs. Fighting about sex makes things worse and drives you both even farther apart.

Do you find yourself losing sexual desire? Have you discovered that your spouse is "amusing" themselves online in ways that threaten your loving marital bond?

Facebook junkie? Porn?


Consider a Sexuality Retreat. 

It allows you to re-establish trust after an emotional affair, sexual affair or "sexting." liaison. We explore many of the following issues:

  • No sex or INFREQUENT sex (less than 10x a year)
  • Trauma-related sexual inhibition
  • Pornography hyperfocus and abuse
  •  Problems in arousal or interest

"Gleam Beams:" that affectionate gaze at one another with warm smiles.

This week-end includes plenty of time to cover issues related to sexuality and intimacy.

Finally, an Intensive Couples Sex Therapy Retreat offering private, clinical attention with a professional highly trained in treating sexual problems.

Sexual discontent is a common problem in relationships.

And a painful one.

Many assume sexual passion fades with long-term committed relationships.

That's a myth.

Sexuality is not seen as something disconnected from your relationship as a whole.

Far from it.

Instead, we integrate your relationship concerns, while allowing the time and space to work on common sexual issues. This includes;

  • a focus on low sexual desire
  • initiating and refusing sex
  • or problems related to sexual functioning.

I spent most of my marriage not knowing it could be as rich as this last month as been.
There are no words to adequately express how grateful I am for the weekend my husband and I spent with you. You provided invaluable insight that, with time and practice, will help us navigate our marriage in a loving, supportive way. I walked away with so much hope, to the point of bursting with it. The concept of developmental trauma explains so much about the dynamics within our relationship, and still has us reeling when we think about the impact it has had..."
Life changing, earth shattering, amazing changes --- I am not kidding when I say this absolutely hands down saved our marriage, saved our lives... I was so unhappy and I am looking at the world differently, knowing I have a partner with me in this life that I once felt so alone in... We have a lot of work to do -- but we are both committed to this..."

She gave us practical tools to use for when I was very upset. We had struggled with much pain and anger and by the time we left we felt almost normal again with a new vision of our future and tools to use. She was extraordinarily easy to talk to and also has a nice sense of humor.  I was skeptical heading into the weekend but now I am so glad we did."

The way sexuality is supposed to be.


We know sexual problems can be an extremely painful issue for a couple.  We get that. This work is designed to allow you to open up, share deeply, and feel safety in exploring your sexual selves. Privately. Both of you with one skilled professional. Learning about each of you as unique individuals with particular needs.


"Lust isn't worth a damn unless it's lust for life and for the moment."


Common Emotions following the Intensive Couples Sex Therapy Retreat:

As a result of this first session, you may feel a sense of relief about the opportunity to move through the issues that brought you to us. However, these intensives may also stir up uncomfortable emotions such as guilt, sadness, anger, loneliness or helplessness.


Long-standing sexual problems between couples need both time, patience, and goodwill.


There may be other issues, such as chronic fighting, affairs, addictions, or deep seated trauma histories that need to be worked on first, before you'll see dramatic results.

Sexuality has to be considered more than an "act."  

It involves a whole host of issues including body image, confidence, trust, commitment, and early life experience that contribute to healthy sexual functioning.  These feelings and issues typically arise, and may even feel exaggerated before you acquire both insight and the courage to change.


"Passion includes a willingness to open to sensations, and if not, then to examine why we're not. It's a personal journey, as well as a relationship interaction."


These Intensive Couples Therapy Retreats are not suitable for couples the following situations:

  • When there is an un-diagnosed physical medical concern. Please have a complete urological or gynecological exam prior to your retreat.
  • Pain or ED suggesting a physical illness.  Some SSRI antidepressant medications cause problems. Check this out with your psychiatrist ahead of time. It doesn't exclude you, but we need to know what's physical and what's not.
  • If you are in an undisclosed, ongoing, or recent affair, a sex retreat should follow healing and closure from that issue. Come for a retreat to work on that unfinished business.
  • In an active, current addiction.
  • Ongoing violence, or threats of violence by either spouse
  • An untreated mental illness, particularly suicidal or homicidal thought, or a history of serious harm you've done to yourself or another person.

If you have a mental health condition which is currently stable and/or in remission, you are welcome to participate in this form of treatment.

Contact us if you have questions or concerns about these issues.

Is a Couples Intensive Retreat right for you?

Thank you for giving us a safe place to talk, cry, laugh and in my case, shut down. Our time spent with you has had a tremendous impact on our relationship and has helped us both take the time to reflect on what we need to focus on going forward.
