Private Counseling and Therapy

​Sometimes it is not possible or convenient for couples to participate in the group setting of a Relating with Heart retreat weekend. In that case we offer private intensives and retreats:

  • Can be with either Robin or with both Robin and Michael

  • FREE initial phone consultation to see if we are a fit​

  • Either in Boulder or Longmont, Colorado or your location

  • May be combined with online sessions, as appropriate

This approach is particularly appropriate if you:

  • Have urgent challenges or decisions and want to get to clarity quickly

  • Desire a rapid shift towards greater connection and enjoyment

  • Are unable to travel and/or prefer longer sessions

  • Require greater privacy

"The tools have changed patterns that I’ve been working with in therapy for 10 or 15 years and could not budge. We were going over the edge and didn’t have any options."

—Office manager

"I feel an awesome admiration for the way you’ve stuck with us. There has been real healing for me."

—Graphic design company owner

A typical counseling series might include:

  • A private session with each person to start

  • Connect—Emptying the Emotional Jug

  • Restore trust—The Museum Tour

  • Map what needs to be addressed for mutual happiness

  • Understand why these issues are important and develop empathy

  • Find creative solutions in a spirit of goodwill

  • Tools and strategies for moving forward

  • Recognition and closure

You will quickly build awareness and skill. Deft counseling helps sustain and deepen this progress. Advances go smoother and faster—the experience is more enjoyable and saves time.

  • Listen with goodwill and take ownership

  • Work through conflict with candor and authenticity

  • Resolve difficult issues much sooner

  • Experience each other as sources of pleasure

  • Stay connected with increased generosity and rapport

You may also wish to visit the Basic True Love page for a fuller sense of typical topics and objectives. While there are some universals that apply to everyone, another advantage of private sessions is that the entire experience can be precisely focused on your specific needs. This can be particularly helpful in a crisis.

Contact Robin directly by phone or email.
