Welcome to the Hold Me Tight® Virtual Workshop Series


This workshop series is based on Dr. Sue Johnson's research in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and on her book Hold Me Tight®. We draw from the science of love and Dr. Sue's proven method for restoring connection to help you experience the seven conversations of a loving relationship with your partner.

A message from Dr. Sue Johnson:

"For the first time, we have a map that can guide us in creating, healing and sustaining love."

~Dr. Sue Johnson

It is our goal to make a couple's workshop that is accessible to the needs of your life and relationship. We have transformed Dr. Sue Johnson’s Hold Me Tight® workshop into a 3-Part Virtual Workshop Series.   This workshop series eliminates the cost of travel and lodging.  It allows you to access and engage in your couple's work from the comfort of your home.  And, it provides you the opportunity to grow through a supportive and incremental 3-Part Process.  Our process allows your couple’s work to be implemented in your daily relationship experience.  It is designed to help you learn, practice, and grow together!

Together you will learn to:


Understand Love & Attachment
