A Couples Workshop
Join us for a Couples Workshop based on the most extant, effective, empirically validated couples counseling out there – Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). That’s not just our opinion. It’s what the science shows.
This workshop is for ALL committed couples, married, unmarried, straight or gay.
Based in Science
Hold Me Tight® is a relationship program developed by Dr. Susan Johnson, an internationally recognized researcher and expert in couples’ therapy. Her approach, EFT has some of the best results in the field, with 70% of couples moving from a bad place in their relationship to feeling connected once again, and 90% of couples still helped at two years later.
No other form of couple’s therapy offers this level of effectiveness. You can register for the event right here.

Here’s what We’ll Do
Bill and Cindy, certified EFT Therapists, will share the amazing new science of love. They will help you make sense of the negative impact you have on each other. You will learn about the cycle of disconnection – where all couples often find themselves – stuck.
You can register for the event right here if you’ve not done so already.
You’ll watch videos of couples, just like you. Couples who get stuck in the most common patterns of disconnect and conflict. And then, you’ll get to have private conversations to figure out how it fits with your unique relationship. , Structured conversations – that will walk you through the process of the most successful couples therapy out there.
Cindy and Bill, as well as other trained facilitators will circulate and be available to be consulted throughout the guided practice. Some couples prefer to work alone; others prefer to consult with the facilitators in some or all of their conversations. No one is required to share any personal experiences with the group.
This program focus’ on health, resilience and growth. It shows how our struggles as couples are a protest against loss of connection, the frustration of feeling we can’t reach our partner, and the pain of loneliness. It doesn’t try to find out “who’s to blame,” but “how do we restore the bond?”
