Can A Retreat Save Your Marriage?


Can A Retreat Save Your Marriage?
A couples retreat can bring intimacy, renewal and healing if you've been neglected or feel betrayed

They decided to go on a couples retreat because it felt totally different than their everyday life.  They found that the focused time together helped them to rebuild trust and created enough safety to share their feelings, something they hadn’t done in a long time.  It was easier with a therapist and on the beach and in the tropical air.

To find out more about Couples Retreats, you can go to my website at  There are options.  I offer a week long couples retreat in September in Fiji, and another in March in Puerto Vallarta, and there are other therapists that offer shorter or longer excursions around the world, in many beautiful destination places.  Some have excursions included, some are ala carte. 


The important thing to look for is the combined experience of good therapy for your relationship and a good environment where you can feel healed, relaxed and renewed.

You might also consider an Intensive – three hours to three days right here in my office in Connecticut, in New Haven or Ridgefield.  Or find out more about how to get me to come to your area, I might be convinced to travel to you.

Most couples come back from couple’s retreats feeling whole and rejuvenated. Maybe it’s just what you need to get through your relationship issues.  Put it on your wish list for this year.
