The weekend Getting the Love You Want workshop for marriage or relationships, developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.Harville is the author of the best-selling book, Getting the Love You Want.and a weekend couples workshop by the same name. Hendrix developed the research-based approach to couple's counseling, Imago Relationship Therapy. (Oprah credits him with saving her own relationship and had him on her show over 15 times.) Imago therapy takes the guesswork out of making your relationship more satisfying and fulfilling for both of you.

If your first reaction is "I can't afford it!", I would invite to also ask yourself, "Can we afford NOT to attend?" Then, make your choice, whether it is a workshop or counseling with me or some other therapist..
All couples are welcome.

Private couple workshops-- with you, your partner and Dawn -- are available.
