YES! Congrats on investing in and prioritizing your relationship. This is going to be a blast!
While this retreat is not considered therapy in and of itself, you will be asked to take a look at your behaviors and how they are negatively affecting your relationship. This retreat is meant to give you a window into what working with a therapist is like, as well as, be in a virtual room with other couples who will be in similar boats as you. I will be setting up a FB group that you can join and connect with one another. I will also pop in and check in on you and answer questions that may come up after the retreat. Give each other ideas for dates get real with each other about struggles.
What we will cover:
1. Explore the concept of roommate syndrome.
2. Ways to get out of roommate syndrome.
3. Create space and time for a weekly logistical meeting.
4. Bring back the fun in your marriage through energy, effort and intention.
1. Get comfortable with the concept that conflict should be connecting.
2. Begin to learn the tools to have more effective conflict management.
3. Deepen the understanding of what your dreams are, and also learn what your partners dreams are. Ask how you can support each others dreams.
4. Make a plan for how to start to prioritize your relationship.
Once you register, I will send a welcome email, so keep your eyes open for that one. It will contain a few questions about your relationship so that I am sure to address specific needs that you may have. This is the first of more retreats to come. Once it is safe to be together again, I plan on holding an amazing destination retreat. Don’t worry, you will be the first on the invite list!

Q & A
What will I need?
Make sure you have a strong internet connection.
Make sure you have a place for both of you to sit in front of a computer. (It’s preferable if you sit at a table or desk.)
Make sure you have a camera. We want to be able to see you and engage with you!
Make sure you have privacy. We don’t want you to get distracted and miss anything. These sessions are not recorded.
Will I have to talk to the group publicly?
You do NOT have to share anything if you don’t want to, but there will be opportunities for you and the other members in the group to share takeaways and lessons you’re learning, as well as ask any questions you might have.
Do I have to participate with my partner?
Yes! This is a couples workshop. You BOTH need to commit to be present for both sessions. Together. (You are allowed to call in from separate locations if you are not in the same space, but both of you must be in attendance.)
Will I enjoy it?
Well although I can not promise that, I am a lot of fun and really enjoy this work. I am confident that you will both learn a bunch, laugh and be glad you made the investment.
