Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop (In-Person), Tampa, Florida.

I am extremely excited and honored to be able to offer this unique and magical Hold Me Tight® Workshop. 

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and is designed around her best-selling book, “Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.”  This is an educational and experiential program.  During these 2 days, I will include educational presentations, private exercises (not in front of the group), video demonstrations, and most importantly, the conversations needed to help couples learn how to better connect, communicate, and how to dance together smoother through life.

This program can be helpful to couples that are doing well and wanting relationship enrichment; couples who are struggling to understand and change negative patterns; and anyone wanting to learn more about the new science of love based on nearly 40 years of research.

The schedule for the course is:

Saturday and Sunday, May 14-15, 2022 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. EDT both days
