Robin Temple and Michael Mike Moore offering Colorado marriage retreats and couples counseling

Honesty and vulnerability are your biggest asset, both individually and as a couple. Easy to listen to and always informative, extremely effective discernment and compassion.

—Civil Engineer

Your warmth and kindness, your faith in me, in this work, and in goodness are contagious. Your astounding courage and integrity has cast a beam of light into the shadowy places in yourself—myself—with acceptance, perspective and kindness that leaves no room for shame; only illumination, compassion, growth and humor.


Excellent complimentary strengths, styles and backgrounds; their ability to model the tools was superb. Integrity, commitment and responsiveness to group input were all great. Your honesty, openness and courage created a safe environment for deep exploration, mutual support and trust.

Arguably the most unusual innovative development in psychology today. Skimming the cream from virtually every brand of psychology, PAIRS is imaginative, hilarious, comprehensive, surprising…

The [PAIRS] work and process that I have witnessed were among the finest that I have seen in my experiences in the worlds of psychotherapy…
