During the 18 years of being in the field of marriage and family, I have specialized in helping couples. I spent my entire doctorate program studying couples and researching what makes couples succeed in relationships. I’ve also studied what makes people feel disconnected in marriage and relationships. If you’re like most people, you would like to lower your chances of relationship problems or divorce and increase the possibilities of having a happy marriage or relationship. Fortunately, there’s lots of research demonstrating that successful relationships require each person to use healthy relationship skills, and you can learn those relationship skills through our luxury all-inclusive couples retreat.
I promise you, our retreat doesn’t include stuffy conference rooms and business attire. Flip flops and swim suits are welcome! Each morning, we’ll meet in a small group setting for around 90 minutes to learn key relationship skills to help you understand each other, communicate better, and feel closer and more connected than ever before. After that, feel free to enjoy your day on the beach, in the spa, or in the pool…or any way you’d like! Join me, for a fun, relaxing and romantic retreat with your mate!
