Can a Private Couples Retreat be Romantic?

Practice applying research-based tools for changing the way you love.

Many couples coming to the private couples retreat don't expect romance. In fact, they may have tried romantic get-aways before that have ended in disaster. Without the skills to effectively discuss differences, they quarrel over whether to stay by the pool or go shopping; which restaurant to eat in; even whether the luxury accommodations live up to their standards!

When you restore trust, love, and passion through this private couples retreat, romance follows.

Focused, private, one-to-one work. Just the two of you...and one highly trained expert.

These retreats provide an intensive, effective and highly targeted set of interventions that can help couples quickly resolve painful issues and learn essential new skills in a short period of time.

One Therapist and One Couple Only at each Private Couples Retreat.

Not expecting romance at this private couples retreat? You might find it anyway...

Others have tried small group formats and learned that they simply couldn't calm themselves down adequately to make good use of the experience. The skills they learned, they quickly forgot.

In our private one-on-one couples therapy retreats, we know you are coming for serious clinical help. Some of you have separated or even filed for divorce. A gorgeous setting is wasted when two people, once in love, can no longer enjoy their time together.

The investment you make in setting aside one weekend, whether for enhancement, or to give it one "last shot" can transform the way you live and love. You'll learn new skills for managing chronic conflicts, opening up and sharing your deepest heart-felt dreams and fears. You'll also gain new respect for the history you've created together and plan a meaningful future you can look forward to.

During this private one-on-one couples retreat, you will learn skills to:

  • Strengthen your intimate bond
  • Talk candidly and respectfully about your most troubling issues
  • Heal and repair old wounds that resurface unexpectedly
  • Develop practical skills to calm down, tune in, and reconnect.

We hold our Retreats in many attractive locations.

Here are just a few:

  • The Bay Area of San Francisco, CA
  • Boca Raton, Florida
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
