Marriage counseling doesn't have to be another weekly squeezed appointment in your work calendar.

It should rather be an appreciated getaway to honor the importance of your relationship

that deserves attention, learning, and commitment.

The Retreats are consisting of 2, 4, or 6 days to help you out of the crisis and into a fresh start.

The after-care via phone will help you to continue the journey

of strengthening the bond between you.

Select your counseling days and book the hotel of your choice. I am  happy to support you with recommendations.

Carry out the

assessments you will be receiving via email. They will take about one hour of your time.

Outside of the consultation times, you are free to arrange your stay as you wish. Discover the place, eat well, relax, enjoy wellness or be active.

The session are by walking and talking in nature.

You will set the pace of the walks. With bad weather, we stay indoors.

You will be picked up at the hotel.

After retreating, the counseling continues from home via phone. Depending on the package, the support lasts up to 5 months.


Each package is for the counseling during the retreat and the follow-up sessions via phone. 

The accommodation, the travel, and the meals are not part of a package.

You choose where you stay, where you eat, and what you do outside the sessions hours.

I'm happy to give you recommendations.
