Relationship retreats are especially successful for healing and revitalizing your connection for these reasons:

  • Utilizing a combination of science-based methods, this format helps you work together in “We-ness” and see immediate success.
  • Dedicating time together in an environment that promotes learning, understanding, and relationship improvement techniques in a short period is extremely effective.
  • Relationship retreats for couples give you the time and space to unwind from years of poor relationship habits, identify triggers, and communicate effectively in a common language.
  • Couples coaching retreats for couples provide the groundwork for partners to establish a solid base for continuous relationship improvement and lifetime satisfaction.

The Yurt Intensive Coaching Retreat is a two night, three day journey that is long enough to ensure that real changes can take hold, but does not interfere with major life commitments

MC is incredible! She’s empathetic, knowledgeable and genuinely cares for us and our couple. She’s been an immense help. If you’re wanting to improve your relationship then a conversation with MC is definitely worthwhile having! 🙏”
Harry G.

MC is an incredible listener, coach and couple champion. She’s helped my wife and I where more than 10 other therapists have opted out, and she’s helped us get more wins, connection and breakthroughs than we’ve had working with any other therapist before her. MC is someone to trust, and to fall in love with along the way. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“I was going through a very hard time. Just talking to MC made me feel more confident and secure to take the next step in my life. She is very supportive and understanding, it is clear how passionate she is and how she is willing to help until the end. I really recommend her.”
