Piggyback Ride


The one day retreats offer a safe and supportive environment designed to help couples deepen understanding, heal emotional injuries, overcome relational disconnection, and recreate enduring, loving bonds. Whether your relationship is simply in need of renewed strength or if you are struggling to feel the connection you once had, Hold Me Tight will give you the tools you need to reconnect.


The retreats are a small group format, usually between 5 and 10 couples. It combines education about what we have learned over the last 20 years of research on how to heal relationships, video examples, and break out time. The couple break out time is where you and your partner can start to apply the material that you have just learned to your specific relationship. Therapist will be available during this break out time to support your relationship as you apply these new insights and skills.The one day retreat is also a great way to begin the therapy process so that both you and the therapist are working off the same EFT road map that leads to deep longlasting connection.
