Romantic Getaway + Imago Marriage Counseling
Our couples retreats are not all sunshine and sand. Our five-day marriage retreats include imago relationship therapy to deepen your relationship. If you and your spouse haven’t been getting along, you’ve done therapy before and are backsliding, or you just know you need to work on your marriage, this retreat is right for you. Combining the timeless beauty of the Sonoran desert and intermittent imago couples therapy, we help you navigate recurring issues in your marriage like money fights, communication problems, cheating, and parenting disputes.
It’s okay for couples to disagree. In fact, that is completely normal. What’s not alright is constant negativity, blame, shame, and disconnect that comes as a result of not knowing how to communicate your differences.
