Every couple needs a little support at some point along the relationship journey. Relationship is not just finding the “right” person and all will be easy. Instead, relationship is a process, a journey, a struggle and a party…depending on the day! This is especially true when couples become parents. These workshops put the focus back on your intimate relationship while remembering you are parents with the unique demands and emotional textures that parenting brings.

With the addition of a child, the loving intimate relationship that was once more primary can take a backseat to the pressing needs of parenting. There is a reason so many relationships fail in the first few years of parenthood. New skills are needed to navigate the unfamiliar waters of being a couple with children.
