"Love is not enough."

Classes, Workshops and Groups

Life is a rewarding,  yet often we can feel overwhelmed. At the Center we offer support, with new ideas to help. Love is not enough. Many well-intentioned people did not get the support needed in their families growing up, and they are just not equiped to live life effectively.  It is like they were given a map of Arizona to navigate life, and they are now living in California. Applying effort and love - without an accurate map - just leads to more frustration. We can help. The workshops listed below have helped many over the years since we opened the Center.  Practical tools are explored to make relationships work in a much healthier way. Let us help you meet your goals and improve your life.

Couples Communication:
"You Just Don't Understand!"

Relationships can be tricky. Most of us were not given a ‘road map’ to help us co-create healthy/loving relationships. Rather than give up, or blame your partner, why not get some new tools to help you clearly navigate through the normal difficult times that bog most relationships. Learn to speak your truth with a compassionate voice, and get your needs met within your primary relationship.

Must register ahead of time.
