We are located near the Kierland Commons area in Scottsdale, Arizona.

You will learn how to understand and improve your relationship through presentations by the workshop leaders, private exercises and conversations with your partner, and by watching video demonstrations of other couples. Although we encourage questions and comments, you do not need to speak in the group if you do not wish to. All of the dialogues with your partner will be done in private, as we always emphasize privacy and comfort. We welcome people of all backgrounds, ages, faiths and sexual orientations. We encourage you to seek therapy if you are in high relational distress.
