Give yourself the gift of time to focus on your relationship. Our Hold Me Tight® weekend builds in time for six private 20-30 minute conversations in comfortable surroundings for you and your partner.

"We broke through the distance in our relationships and connected us deeper than we had been in 20 years."

What happens at the weekend?

This weekend will center around helping you and your partner successfully have six conversations specifically designed to increase your intimacy and security with each other. They are based on Hold Me Tight® and the Emotionally Focused Therapy Model for adult relationships, considered as the most research-validated approach for improving relationships.

"The weekend exceeded our expectations.  We thought it would be valuable, but it turned out to be even more transformational than we anticipated."

The Seven Conversations

HMT book cover.jpeg

Based on the book and work of
Dr. Sue Johnson,
the seven conversations will not 'cure' all of your problems,
but you will walk away with
a way to address them,
for a lifetime of love.

Identify reactive patterns that occur when you feel disconnected

Find your 'raw spots' and the  issues that result in reactive patterns

Review your reactive moments from a perspective of compassion

Share your softer, more vulnerable feelings and needs

Repair emotional injuries from past 'ruptures'

Bonding through touch and sex.

Keeping your love alive, maintaining closeness over time

"We learned to listen in a different way.  To feel emotions instead of just hearing them.  A heartfelt thank you!"

How does it work?

Each conversation will include four components:


Learn how each oconversation relates to increased intimacy.


Video clips of Dr. Sue Johnson working with couples to illustrate the conversation.


Time alone with your partner to have the conversation with support from presenters as needed.


Time to review how the conversation went and answer questions.

"The tips, experiences, and information shared were priceless!"
