  • This training is hosted by Tammy Shelton, LMFT  with Transforming Couples.

This retreat is designed to teach you exactly what successful couples do to foster romance and harmony in their relationships. During the first day, you will learn how to build fondness, admiration, and closeness in your relationship. On the second day, you’ll work on conflict management while learning new and important communication skills. Couples work privately on exercises designed to address the challenges in real-life relationships. There will be therapists to support you in the exercises, and the retreat is led by two certified Gottman Method couples therapists. While the nature of this retreat is psycho-educational, all info gathered from couples will be kept absolutely confidential. The retreat is not couples therapy and there is no group work.


Who Should Attend

This retreat is designed to strengthen your marriage or relationship. If you have a strong relationship, this retreat will provide you with the insights and tools to make it a great one. If your relationship is moderately distressed, then this two-day retreat will provide a road map for repair. If you are in high conflict or are seriously considering divorce, then private therapy may be more appropriate. This is skill based psycho-education and NOT therapy.
