Join me for a deep dive into the mysteries and wonders of the human heart. Discover why we struggle so much with relationships and how to turn the struggle into fulfillment. Whether you are single and searching, or in a committed relationship, this experience will shift the way you look at love and deepen the Love Capacities that are the foundation of meaningful, enduring relationships. If you are stuck in cycles of unresolved conflict, lost in the midlife marriage malaise, or wanting to make a good relationship great, this workshop will illuminate the path to an extraordinary relationship.


When I launched the Luminous Woman® Weekend in 2009, I had no idea how much of an impact it would have on women’s lives. This is a workshop experience that will open up your access into deep resources already within you, and inspire you to cross thresholds of limitation, so that you can bring your outer life into alignment with your soul’s longing.

Exhausted? Discouraged? Overwhelmed and under-inspired? Feeling lost and adrift? Come to the Luminous Woman ® Weekend and rekindle your inner flame! Learn what it means to become a “fully enfranchised” woman, living a luminous life.

I’ll be offering entry weekends soon. Get on the notification list for the next weekend and read The Luminous Woman Essay for inspiration in the meantime.

All About Couples Intensives

If you want to work with me and reside outside of Arkansas, consider flying/driving in for a couples intensive – designed just for the two of you. (one couples at a time)…. These are “deep dives” into a process of discovery, healing and the reworking of negative patterns in a couple’s life. Intensives can produce profound shifts in a couple’s capacity to communicate, connect, understand, and re-commit to each other. My intensives usually begin on a Friday evening and end on Sunday afternoon, but this can be tailored to meet your needs. During our time together, you gain clarity about how and why you got stuck in your development as a loving couple. I work with couples who feel profoundly disconnected, couples unable to exit repetitive cycles of conflict, couples where there has been a lingering hurt that has never been healed, and couples where there has been a significant betrayal.

You will learn how to talk to each other in a way that will invite actually being heard and understood, you will experience moving out of defensive power struggling into co-operation, and begin to see how your differences are strengths. That anxious feeling in your stomach will relax, and as you learn new ways to resolve resentments, clear up misunderstanding, and heal deep hurts, you will experience a revitalized connection and see each other with new eyes. At the end of our time together, I will send you home with a notebook of important learnings from our work together, along with practices that will help you continue to grow as a couple.

Many couples say that these transformational weekends saved their marriages. An intensive can accomplishes as much as 6-9 months of weekly couples therapy. Whether you are struggling with conflict, sexual disconnection, betrayal, family issues, life stage adjustments, or just drifting in the doldrums of a devitalized marriage, an intensive can heal, rekindle, and send you home with the tools to build the relationship of your dreams.

By the way, I don’t just work with couples in trouble. I also work with couples who are interested in enriching an already good connection!

Train with Me at UAMS

Over the years I have trained hundreds of clinicians in my unique way of working.  At present, I do most of my week-day work as an Associate Professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences where I am the founding director of the UAMS Couples Center.

In addition to providing couples therapy, I train clinicians in my unique approach to couples work – Interdynamic Couples Therapy™. As an AASECT certified sex therapist, I also teach clinicians how to work with sexual issues, and supervise clinicians who are working towards AASECT certification.
