What questions are addressed in this sexuality retreat?

We’ll move you beyond thinking about sexuality as a repetitive or stagnant act and help you both to revive and enliven your sexual selves, for a better personal as well as marital life. 

Why isn't sex working well for us? Are there hidden phobias, trauma or resentments that are blocking desire and emotional intimacy?

What practical education do we need to increase sexual energy? Are even affectionate gestures feeling forced and unnatural?

Are we close friends but not lovers anymore? Do we avoid conflict to keep the peace?

Can we learn to initiate and refuse sex more gently and effectively?

No sleaze. No hype.
Real clinical sex therapy. Real answers.

Many couples never end up divorcing because of sexual problems. They just stay miserable. This weekend is designed to change that.


Thank you for giving us a safe place to talk, cry, laugh and in my case, shut down. Our time spent with you has had a tremendous impact on our relationship and has helped us both take the time to reflect on what we need to focus on going forward.

There are no words to adequately express how grateful I am for the weekend my husband and I spent with you. You provided invaluable insight that, with time and practice, will help us navigate our marriage in a loving, supportive way. I walked away with so much hope, to the point of bursting with it. The concept of developmental trauma explains so much about the dynamics within our relationship, and still has us reeling when we think about the impact it has had...

She gave us practical tools to use for when I was very upset. We had struggled with much pain and anger and by the time we left we felt almost normal again with a new vision of our future and tools to use. She was extraordinarily easy to talk to and also has a nice sense of humor.  I was skeptical heading into the weekend but now I am so glad we did.
