A Better Marriage Retreat

"It was amazing and very insightful. It was so emotional but a good kind. I definitely cried but it was much needed like a big stress reliever has finally been lifted off of my shoulders and I finally feel hopeful for my marriage."

"I finally feel hopeful for my marriage."

I wasn't sure if my marriage was beyond repair or if we were just in a rough patch. I was settling for complacency and was definitely ignoring things that needed to be worked on. And that's when I had to acknowledge that my marriage was put on the back burner and it was up to me to make a change.

I was in your shoes... I even had divorce papers in my hands.

it's time to learn how to hold space for one another and have in depth conversations that will transform your relationship.

I'm Veronica, your new relationship mentor with no filter and no BS.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, marriage coach, course creator, retreat host, mother of 3, married for 23 years and host of the Empowered and Unapologetic podcast. 

more about me

hey there!

I get it! I once had divorce papers in my hand.

On the outside, everything about our lives looked perfect but I couldn't admit to anyone in my life that my husband and I were miserable. Every day was a struggle and I had completely lost myself. 

With nowhere else to turn, I focused on creating the best version of myself. It was just the thing we needed to save our marriage.

just like you I wanted a relationship that would make newlyweds jealous. I know I have that now and I am excited to teach you how to do the same. 

but it wasn't always this way.

This retreat is the only one of its kind because...

it challenges you to step outside of your comfort zones.

I don’t do bandaids. I will help you identify the issues you both bring into the relationship and teach you how to truly heal. I am not here to be a referee, I take a great deal of pride in providing you the guidance you both need to hold you accountable to receive the changes you desire. 

This requires a lot of application in real time. This isn’t your average retreat where you will listen to me lecture. Hell NO!!! I am putting you both to work together and with people who are on the same boat. We are going to collectively implement the tools and skills you will learn so that you experience true healing.

it comes with support.

You don’t have to do this alone. As a marriage therapist I have over 9 years of experience helping couples, over 10 years of education and 23 years of personal experience as a wife. I have gone through it all, and then some. 

This retreat includes everything you need to reignite your spark.

You’re the one going to put forth the work and effort. I will be challenging you both and I will not work harder than you. 
Are you ready to invest in your marriage and experience the connection you’ve been yearning for?

Replacing pride with understanding and support.

Resolving arguments without the past resurfacing.

Setting intentional time to grow together and learn from each other.

Bringing back the romance in your marriage, regardless of your busy schedule.

Having uncomfortable conversations with accountability.

Working together as a team to support each other's dreams and goals.
