Virtual Retreats & Intensive Online Programs

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are conducting virtual retreats online rather than meeting in person. Our virtual work is every bit equal in effectiveness to an in-person retreat. Here’s what a few recent couples said about virtual retreats:

“I first thought ‘I don’t want to do it virtually.’ I thought I wouldn’t get as much out of it. But now I can say it was life-changing. It opened our eyes and hearts. We’re very happy with the results. Doing it online was actually much better.”

“During this stay-at-home period the online intensive we did with you has literally saved our marriage. We are so glad we found you. And we thank you for the security we have found with each other through working with you.”  

“This has been awesome to do during the Coronavirus time. We’re really grateful for you. We really weren’t doing very well. The emotional repair process you gave us has been huge, really effective. It finally feels like we are really a team.”

John’s Different Approach to Helping Couples

Nationally recognized as a pioneer in the field, John has been conducting intensive marriage retreats for three decades. But what he offers is far more than just the intensive format. His approach to the work itself is distinctly different from traditional couples therapy or marriage counseling. And due to its exceptional efficacy, John has been sought by therapists for training in this state-of-the-art approach to working with couples based on neuroscience and attachment research. John’s couples retreats offer a fast track to improve your communication, navigate difficulties, reconnect, and reinvigorate intimacy. Clients routinely report they get far more than they hoped for. And, after their retreat ends, they have the practical tools and strategies they need to stay on track.
