Relationships are wild, wonderful, frustrating, exhilarating, and exhausting. They certainly aren’t easy, and unfortunately for us, love isn’t always enough to make them work. Even the most committed couples can end up feeling disconnected, or at a loss for how to keep the spark alive. So what's missing? What is the secret to keeping your relationship happy, fulfilling, stable, and strong?

To answer this question, Andrews & Associates Counseling is combining over 40 years of field experience and top research into a 2-part, weekend couples retreat.

Topics we will cover include:

Self-Awareness & Attachment Styles

Trust, Safety, Vulnerability & Connection

Intimacy & Sex

Roles & Responsibilities

Communication & Conflict

The Wild, Wonderful Love Relationship Retreat is an information-packed, interactive experience that will dive deep into the heart of relationships, beyond superficial communication issues. It will educate, challenge, and grow individuals, and their relationships.

This retreat is for all committed couples who want to take their relationship from "good" to great! Couples who attend will gain a new understanding of the keys to maintaining a fulfilling partnership and learn skills to enhance their relationship using proven strategies.

Hosted by

Owner of Andrews & Associates Counseling

"In our crazy, chaotic, busy world, our relationships often get sidelined. We get complacent and fall into ruts. Take this opportunity to invest in your relationship. Make time for one another. Be intentional. Your relationship is worth it."

Meet us at the Milford Lake Conference Center on Friday, April 14 and again on Saturday, April 15 for this 2-part retreat.

What to expect

Who Should Attend:

This retreat is designed to be inclusive and appropriate for couples at any stage of their relationship.

If you want to gain actionable strategies to make your relationship better AND learn how to remove barriers to create a more fulfilling partnership, then this is for you!

Please note, this retreat is for couples who are not currently in crisis. 

What We Will Do:

The retreat will be made up of modules that include a mix of educational presentations, individual reflection prompts, and discussion/application activities you will complete as a couple. View the schedule below for a breakdown of what to expect!

Retreat Schedule

Through a series of modules, experts will share pointed information, create space for individual reflection and focused couple interaction and application.
