The "I" in Relationship Retreat

Coming early 2022...

Introducing a two-day retreat focused on bringing your best self to your relationships. 

Do you feel lost, unfulfilled, or depleted in relationships? Are you unsure what you even want or need? Do you desire to come home to a relationship that feels nurturing and restorative?


Or perhaps you are happy in your relationship, but would like to learn even more about how to have a fulfilling partnership? Would you like to ensure that you are bringing your best to a relationship? Do you want to gain more awareness of yourself and your needs, while learning how to practice the best self-care?

In our work with couples, we have found that individuals who work on self are much more successful in relationships. This is why a couples therapist may often refer each person to yet another therapist. But there must be an easier way.

We are excited to announce an individual retreat focusing on bringing your best self to your relationship.


Join us for our first The I in Relationship Retreat. We’ll help you define goals, develop a more positive attitude, and sort out what is and isn’t your responsibility in a relationship. 

You’ll learn how to recognize healthy and unhealthy relationship patterns more quickly, and avoid unnecessary drama. We want to teach you how to manage conflict effectively.

Perhaps most importantly, we’ll help you identify your core needs, which will allow you to set healthy limits to protect those needs. This insight is crucial to building any thriving relationship.

At our retreat, self-care in a relaxing environment is a major focus. We’ll take time with each topic to develop a deeper awareness. By the end of the weekend, you'll have improved insight to yourself. You will take away specific tools for improving areas that need support.

We’ve led many couples to a stronger relationship in a single weekend dedicated to growth. Now, we are excited to lead individuals through a process that will spur growth and change in themselves. What better gift can you give yourself than the insight to bring your best self to a healthy, thriving relationship?

  • Individuals who want to bring their best self to their relationship.
