You Can Transform Your Relationship in Just 3 Days!

The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy is world-renowned for its success in helping couples save their marriages. Traditional weekly couples therapy is ideal for some couples but not necessarily what everyone needs.

A three-day all-inclusive couples therapy retreat might be a better fit for you if you are looking for an approach that is strength-based, fun, and likely to bring faster results.

Retreats are relaxing, romantic, and experiential. You'll get your skills and strategies while having lots of free time for spa services, fine dining, and outdoor adventures.

This (Almost) All-Inclusive Package Includes:

  • 2 Nights, 3 Days Luxury Accommodations in Elegant Skytop Lodge, Poconos, PA
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Snacks (Dinner on your own)
  • Private support and individualized attention from a certified Gottman couples therapist and a Ph.D. psychologist
  • Semi-Private Training Seminars (Small groups of no more than 15 couples)
  • Break-Out Sessions with Your Partner (Practice exercises with help nearby)
  • Lots of Free Time to Enjoy Your Romantic Weekend Getaway Escape in the Poconos

٭ All recommendations are backed by scientific research

Bonus Amenities

  • 5,500 acres playground in the Poconos
  • Indoor and Outdoor Pools
  • Full  Schedule of Free Around the Clock Resort Activities
  • Well-Marked Hiking Trails

What People Are Saying ...

"Wow. Just Wow! My husband and I attended Laura's retreat because we were having communication problems. We tried couples therapy but that didn't work for us because we felt like we were just re-hashing old fights. Laura's retreat was a breath of fresh air and exactly what we needed. She is warm and funny and upbeat and has a way of making you feel like your problems are normal. We thought we needed new communication skills, but what we realized at the weekend was that we actually needed more than anything else was to remind each other how much we love each other."

~ Attendee: Art and Science of Love Workshop, Marriage Retreat, Bryn Mawr PA

"My favorite part of the workshop was when we shared what we like and appreciate about each other. It's so simple, but we never thought to just sit down and have that kind of conversation on our own. We're going to keep this tradition up once a week when we return!"

~ Attendee Philadelphia, PA One Day Skill Building Workshop

"We had a bunch of "aha" moments throughout the weekend. Our biggest takeaway is that we tend to "listen to respond" instead of "listen to understand." We had heard this before but didn't think we were doing it 🙂 She helped us see what to do instead, and we still have our worksheets from the retreat and pull them out when we start to argue."

~Participants in Marriage Retreat in Bryn Mawr, PA

Escape The Routine in the Poconos

Long-lasting love is attainable only when you deliberately carve out time to prioritize yourself, your partner, and your relationship.

If you're beginning to feel more like roommates than romantic partners, a weekend getaway in the idyllic Pocono mountains might be precisely what you need.

Laura and Michael met at a training facility when they were young and fresh out of school. They became instant friends as two psychology nerds wanting to make a difference. They went on to fall in love, raise a family together, and build a couples therapy training program.

Like all couples, they have to manage conflict, find ways to stay connected when life gets out of control and support each other through it all.

In other words, They have to practice what they preach.

Their kids are now old enough to stay home alone, so they are now teaming up to offer a small group couples retreat in the Poconos.

You and your love can unplug, unwind, and revive your relationship in the breathtaking Pocono Mountains, only a short drive from New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Join the thousands of couples who understand that relationship and marriage retreats are the best short-cut to relationship health.
