"These guys are amazing! They really hit home with a lot of things we struggle with and presented in a way that was clear and helpful!”
"My husband and I learned so much from this weekend! We feel so much closer to each other. I learned that I was doing some major things wrong in our marriage. I can’t wait for the opportunity to use new skills and correct my own mistakes!”
"The sex conversation was great."
"Your method and the tools you suggest are very accessible and tangible (actionable). It simple and straightforward. Although not everything will be easy to implement, it felt empowering, like, ‘yes, we can do this!'”
"We arrived in a tough place together, and through the first day were able to re-gain a sense of friendship and closeness.”
"Very nice having the whole weekend with my spouse to talk about us. We don’t get that chance at home. I loved being guided through all the conversations."
"It gave us a base and model to work from. This is really helpful for people who didn’t have great examples in their past."
"Liked having clear theoretical background & framework based on the research. Loved the exercise and clarity of how to complete them."
"Super important for us to finally be addressing something we’ve avoided and been stuck on for a long time."
