What is a Hold Me Tight® Workshop?

Based on the extensive work of Dr. Sue Johnson and her book Hold Me Tight®, this two-day workshop mixes both education and experience.


You’ll learn the latest findings in attachment science and how to apply them to your relationship. Then we’ll guide you and your partner through exercises to help you deepen and strengthen your relationship. You'll practice what you’ve learned in a safe, supportive environment.

This workshop is for you--whether you've been married for 20 years and have longstanding hurts to work through, or have been dating for two months and want to build a strong foundation for the future.


You’ll learn to...

  • Identify the “demon dialogues” that all couples get stuck in and what drives them

  • Recognize and explore underlying emotions

  • Deepen emotional and physical intimacy

  • Repair and forgive old hurts

  • Improve communication

  • Undo negative patterns of interaction

  • Affirm what’s working

This workshop will take place in a confidential therapy office setting, and will be facilitated by two experienced couples therapists, Simi Lichtman, LCSW, EFT Therapist, and Yosef Gurevitch, LCSW, EFT Therapist & Supervisor

All couples will have the opportunity to meet one of the trainers before the workshop begins for an intake session, which will cover what you can expect from the workshop and address any particular concerns or questions you might have.
