Getting the Love You Want – An LGBT Couples Workshop

Do you want to make your dream relationship a reality?

What if we told you that you have everything in your couple-hood to achieve this and that all you need is a codebook, the right tools, and the knowledge of how to use them? This transformative weekend intensive is based on the work of Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. and the best-selling book, Getting the Love You Want. It demystifies relationships while teaching couples skills to function at an optimum level in their relationship. This workshop is considered to be the equivalent of seven months of couples therapy.

Karen did a great job, very knowledgeable and able to put theory into practice.
