Menage A Deux Couples Dinner - Therapy Is Not A Dirty Word

Cultivating intimacy and vulnerability is the conerstone of lasting love but how do we do it?  As we indulge in gourment dinner, we will discuss the many barriers to intimacy including busy schedules, past hurts, and long held fear about love and loss.

Enjoy complimentary wine pairings while learning how to move past these blocks to build the deep, soulful connection you’ve always longed for.

Not Tonight Dear Couples Dinner - Therapy Is Not A Dirty Word

It may not be openly discussed, but the reality is that many couples struggle with unequal levels of sexual desire. Partners with a higher libido often feel rejected and unwanted, and those with a lower drive often feel guilty and pressured into having sex. Both sides can find compromise difficult, either from feeling their needs aren’t being met, or that their body is not their own.

Join relationship experts Esther Boykin and Erica Turner, as we share tips and suggestions for couples dealing with sexual incompatibility.

Over lunch with relationship experts, Esther Boykin and Erica Turner, you will learn practical, straight-forward techniques to help you and your partner strengthen your connection, reduce conflict, and yes, even improve your communication skills.
