Transform your relationship with seven key conversations for a lifetime of love.

"Will You Hold Me Tight?"

This is the deep need that motivates every human relationship, and especially our romantic partnership.

You may repeatedly ask your partner, "Are you there for me? Do I matter to you?" Or perhaps you live with unresolved unease. You may have never felt emotionally safe with anyone before.

When both partners can answer this question with a confident "Yes!", the experience is life-changing. 

Hold Me Tight® can get you there - either for the first time, or to reconnect the frayed ends of your love knot.

We are incredibly grateful for the bond we've established during our 10 years of marriage. We now feel secure and supported, even when life takes unimaginable turns. But it took years of distress, risk, and reaching out through our pain to get there, and the journey of growth never ends.

Applying Emotionally Focused Therapy to our own lives by completing the Hold Me Tight® program was nothing short of a game-changer in our journey. Through our partnership, we want to give couples a chance to experience that same transformation. From first-hand experience, we encourage you to try Hold Me Tight® to change how you view and experience love on a fundamental level.
