Would you like to create a more loving and secure connection? Do you want to heal from past hurts and move forward? Are you feeling stuck in a rut, unable to communicate, lost in repetitive conflicts that leave you isolated and alone?
This 2-day couples intensive will help you breakthrough and look at your issues in a new way, by understanding the science of relationships, and give you the tools to change negative patterns, improve communication, repair past hurts, and renew intimacy and passion. I run these couples workshops with both a male & female co-presenter. This has proven to be most helpful for our couples based on happy and grateful participant feedback
For Real! You can read hundreds of reviews from couples who started their HMT workshop stuck, many of them feeling hopeless.
All of them left feeling closer, more connected and more hopeful than ever before.
Many of these couples had even tried couples therapy for years with very little success.
“I want to thank you for allowing me to be a helper for your HMT workshop.
This was my 4th HMT workshop at which I was a helper. The other three workshops used more of the standard HMT curriculum. Your workshop experience was so rich, engaging and a felt experience of everything EFT. You have such a tremendous gift. I am truly grateful to learn from you.”
EFT Trained Therapist
This Hold Me Tight Workshop is based on the most successful model of couples therapy available today – Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) – time tested and researched for over 25 years. We get to the heart of the matter – down to the core emotions and behaviors that are needed to create a loving relationship, and the things that often go wrong that drive conflict and block closeness. We help you understand your partner… and yourself, and why you do the things you do. And we show you how to change negative patterns and make things better – right away.
Your couples retreat will be led by Debi Scimeca-Diaz, along with a male co-leader who is trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Debi is a highly trained and experienced therapist who has completed rigorous training to become a ICCEFT Certified EFT Trainer. She specializes in helping couples improve their marriage – a true relationship expert. She knows how to create happy relationships, and how to fix them and get them back on track.

PLUS – The Relationship Assessment that answers the question: Are You There for Me?
The evidence based approach used appreciates and understands the perspectives of both men and women, and is effective with married and unmarried couples, couples of different cultural backgrounds, and couples with different sexual orientations.. From newlyweds just starting out, to couples who just need to get out of a rut, to couples on the brink of divorce – we can help you see things differently and move forward.
We’ll explain exactly what you need to know in short, easy to understand presentations, using popular music, movie and TV clips to illustrate our model. We’ll show you videos of other couples working on their relationship using our EFT approach. And we’ve developed highly effective relationship conversations for you to use to work on your own relationship in private, with therapists standing by to help you.
You will never be put on the spot. We don’t believe in shaming or blaming. You will never have to share anything personal unless you want to. Our marriage retreat is all about safety, understanding, and validation.
We can help you get unstuck from those negative cycles, communicate in a way that promotes closeness and understanding, and end feelings of lonleiness and resentment. We can help you to rediscover intimacy and connection, develop a partnership that resolves conflict, and find your way back to each other emotionally and physically.
