Join our Intimacy Workshop for Couples

Based on Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy

Often couples say that they experience the same troubling patterns with their partners over and over; although the topics may vary, the end result – of conflict and disconnection – seems the same. It’s so frustrating not to be able to get your message across and have your partner understand what you need. Sometimes communicating, itself, seems risky – will it lead to more disconnection and distress? Despite your deep love and desire for your partner, it can feel that you are miles apart. If you’ve experienced the same thing, you may wonder why it happens as well as how you can get out of those cycles and back to smooth sailing with the one you love. 

In the Hold Me Tight® workshop, we explain and offer concrete directions to help you cool down the distress, understand one another better and create the closeness you desire. We offer you the science of love and attachment, explaining in plain language what’s happening between us and our partner. We make it practical and applied, including specific suggestions and video clips showing how it’s done. We offer clear-cut ways to communicate differently – a guide to making those communications feel safe and go smoothly. We also show you how to create a sense of closeness, trust, and intimacy with your partner.

More About Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshops

Thank you for considering our one-day couples workshop called Hold Me Tight®, a program developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, founder of Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT). We would love to have you join us at our upcoming event on, Saturday, September 14!

During this workshop, you will learn from presentations, discussions, example videos, and personal exercises about how love goes wrong, and how you and your partner can make sense of the emotions in your relationship. You will also learn how to stop fighting and start connecting differently, how to heal past hurts, and how to create the relationship you’ve always wanted. This workshop is open to couples of all sexual and gender orientations.

Schedule for the Workshops

Check-in is Saturday morning from 8:45am – 9:00am. We meet from 9:00am – 5:00pm with a little over an hour for lunch and short breaks throughout the day. Initially, we meet as a large group, using presentation and plentiful videos and examples. Break-out sessions are done with each couple having private conversations to complete exercises together. Workshop leaders are available for consultation on the exercises if desired.  Respect for privacy is paramount and sharing in large group is voluntary.
