Couples who have attended
Alex's workshop say:

"This class will improve your marriage, your family and your life! You can't afford to wait any longer. You have nothing but your loneliness and pain to lose. Commit and get your life and marriage back on track."  B & D

"This was the best program I have ever seen. Alex did a phenomenal job guiding us and teaching us."  M & A

"My fiance and I took the Hold Me Tight workshop as an alternative to pre-marital counseling through our church. We loved it! We had no idea what to expect but walk away with a greater understanding of ourselves as individuals, as a couple, and what our needs and sore points are. We highly, highly recommend it!"  K.S.

"I liked the fact that this workshop provided me with tools to address situations which will arise in our marriage. One of the most important ones is to stop and take a breath before saying or doing anything." E.N.

The EFT approach is easy to identify with. I would recommend it for anyone in a relationship of any kind. A workshop helps couples see they are not alone." E.P.
