HOLD ME TIGHT® COUPLES WORKSHOP - DEC. 7 & 8, 2019

Dec 7,2019 - Dec 8,2019    Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Please contact Alex at alex@alexanderavila.com or (720) 316-7771 prior to registering and paying for this event. We need a minimum of five couples to hold this event. As of 10/30/19, we have not yet met the minimum. You are on your way to securing your spot for the Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop on Dec. 7 & 8, 2019, 8:30am-4:30pm, at the Sheraton DTC in Greenwood Village, CO. It is not necessary to stay at the hotel, but it can be very convenient if you are traveling from a distance or would like a getaway if you live nearby. This Sheraton has nice rooms, and their prices are usually very fair. Otherwise, there are several other hotels in the area. (Hold Me Tight® is a registered trademark to Sue Johnson.) One important qualification for this particular workshop is that both partners are able to have private conversations about potentially upsetting issues during the couple exercise segments. I and other therapists will be checking in with couples as needed to keep them on track with the structured exercises. This portion of the workshop can be done in a private space, and personal content need not be shared when the larger group reconvenes. Dr. Sue Johnson, the program developer and book author, wants couples to know that this program was designed as an educational and enrichment experience and not intensive couples therapy. Please read the Release Form on the Hold Me Tight class information page. All individuals will need to sign this form before the workshop begins.

You are registering for the 12-week Women's Sexual Betrayal Therapy Group on Tuesdays, 9:30am-11:00am, beginning Tuesday, January 7, 2020. We will not meet 3/10 (and possibly not on 3/17), but we will schedule a makeup day for at least one of those missed Tuesdays. We will cover SO MUCH MORE than just emotional and sexual betrayal in this group. We discuss areas such as stress, health, balance, money, roles, expectations, identity, marriage and family relationships, and more! Please follow the prompts to make payment after registering and make the first monthly payment of $260 to secure your spot. Each 90-minute sessions costs $65. When you start the group, you are committing* to remain in the group for 12 sessions to create safety and maintain consistency. You will receive emotional support and join a community of women with similar struggles and needs to which you will also provide care and support by your steady presence. *If you discover that the group is not a good fit for your present needs, you may discontinue the group after the first month without being charged going forward. OUR GROUP IS CURRENTLY OPEN! For an effective group experience, we need a minimum of 5 women and will have a maximum of 7. If we do not reach our minimum, we will let you know as soon as we can and discuss the possibility of starting with fewer women (bare minimum of 3) and allow others to join in the future.

  1. Make sure you can attend all the groups. Regular attendance is vital. If you know that you will miss more than one of the group dates, please contact Alex. Although we know unexpected things can arise, missing multiple sessions can negatively impact the group experience. When you start the group, you are committing* to remain in the group to create safety and maintain consistency. You will receive support and join a community of group participants with similar struggles and needs to which you will provide care and support by your consistent presence.
  2. Pay to secure your spot. Continue to the payment section and make the first monthly payment of $260 to secure your spot and make payment for the first month (4 group sessions). Each 90-minute weekly session costs $65. Your credit card will be charged $65 weekly for the remaining eight weeks. Many groups decide to continue meeting weekly for an additional 12 weeks, and so we always consider and discuss that possibility as a group.
  3. Purchase the "Facing Heartbreak" workbook by Dr. Stefanie Carnes, Mari Lee, & Anthony Rodriguez prior to our first group session.
  4. Schedule an individual appointment with Alex prior to the first group session. You will discuss your goals and learn about the group process.
  5. Attend the weekly group to recover from the immense pain associated with betrayal and experience life and relationship growth while understanding you are not alone and there is help!

Please visit our Web page or contact Alex to learn more about the group.

Lastly, you will need to complete the appropriate paperwork prior to the first session. Soon after you register, we will schedule an individual session and email you a link to our secure client portal for you to complete new client paperwork.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting with you soon!
