Book Your Retreat


If you and your partner prefer to meet at a beautiful Hill Country Resort, or someone wants to gift it to you, let’s make it happen!

I understand how challenging relationships can become. I appreciate the investment you are making with your money, time and feelings and the trust you are placing in me. Let me know if you have any concerns.

What should we expect?  

I’ve spent almost 20 years developing a straightforward approach, refined to quickly get couples right where they need to be. No weird or gimmicky exercises. This pragmatic approach includes guided imagery and systematic desensitization techniques, similar to those used in sports psychology and phobias such as fear of flying.

Office Address & Downtown

100 North Edward Gary, Suite 108
San Marcos, TX 78666


The San Marcos destination plays an important role. The pace and the crystal clear San Marcos river invite slowing down and reflection. The office is conveniently located within the downtown square and within walking distance to the river and other nature oriented and low key activities. Make it a simple two day retreat, or tack it onto a bigger weekend trip. If an out-of-state couple feels they need more–if my schedule permits–we can set an immediate follow up 2 day retreat.

Schedule Alterations

After years of honing this retreat, I’ve found these days and times work best. While you have to take time off work, the process of having a retreat, then a weekend, actually gives people time to unplug and concentrate on their own life. It signals an important investment in your self and relationships.
