You are trying to dance together, but you keep stepping on one another’s toes no matter how hard you try.

You can learn a new dance. You can learn to feel safe in each other’s arms again.


Thousands of couples have been helped by the Emotionally Focused Therapy approach, developed by Dr. Sue Johnson.  EFT is evidence-based, nonjudgmental and effective.   EFT and the Hold Me Tight™ seminars help couples move closer to the relationships they are longing to have.  Whether you love someone of the same or opposite sex, this seminar will help you deepen and enliven your relationship.  


This nonjudgmental, research-based seminar will help you:

  • Describe and control negative cycles in your relationship
  • Affirm your individual needs for closeness and safety
  • Create positive experiences learning to reach for one another to create a secure bond

“This program is based on the idea that long term love between romantic partners is not only possible but is our birthright.  We are all better and stronger human beings when we can find a safe haven and a secure base in a loved one’s arms.  Loving couple relationships are the basis of secure families, a saner society and a truly human future for us all.”  –Sue Johnson, PhD
