In the tranquility of Florida’s beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach, learn research-based strategies for building and maintaining relationship intimacy and connection.

Have you ever planned a romantic getaway or evening, thinking about all of the details – candlelit dinners, romantic beaches, intimacy – only to have your getaway go sour when continuous arguing or worse, silence, spoils the romance? I’ve been a psychologist and relationship therapist for more than a decade, listening to these same scenarios play out over and over again with couples in marital distress.

Now you can restore your relationship while having a world-class romantic getaway at the exclusive Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Our marriage retreat is a small-group, two day couples retreat, with no more than six couples in each retreat. We offer you research-based skills for deepening intimacy, resolving and managing conflicts, and building, or restoring, your shared path in a private, comfortable, and beautiful setting.

Both days of the retreat will offer lectures, research-based information, role plays, discussion, and exercises (that you will do only with your partner). When listening to educational components you will be seated together as a group in a private setting. When doing the exercises, couples will separate from the group to complete exercises in private, as to not pressure anyone to disclose anything publicly unless a couple is interested in doing so.

Here’s what you will learn during the two days of our retreat together:

Day One: Restoring and Deepening Friendship and Intimacy

Day Two: Resolving Conflict, Improving Communication, and Building a Shared Path

Dates:       December 6 – 7, 2014

Location:  Ponte Vedra Inn & Club

Cost:         $2,500 per couple (does not include hotel accommodations or meals)


Refund/Cancellation Policy:   A 50% retainer (non-refundable) is required to guarantee your reservation. This retainer will be applied to the final payment, which is due two weeks prior to the event. 100% of the estimated balance will be charged to your account if cancelled within 14 days of the retreat.

Location Information:           The retreat will be held at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, a AAA Five-Diamond rated resort and hotel located in Ponte Vedra Beach on Florida’s east coast. Ponte Vedra Inn & Club offers quiet opulence and upscale accommodations paired with fine service and a wide array of leisure pursuits.  Please visit www.pontevedra.com to make hotel reservations.
