  • Help you and your partner re-establish effective communication
  • Transform your frustrations into vehicles for change
  • Increase the zest and passion in your relationship
  • Inspire you to experience healthy relationships
  • Grow your Relational Intelligence™ and help you reach Relational Maturity™

Have a “taste” of Hedy’s work as a skilled couples therapist through this short video clip from Hedy & Yumi’s documentary film Crossing The Bridge.

  • Are you looking to create a relationship that is safe, passionate, and long lasting?
  • Do you want to take your relationship to the next stage and re-connect with your partner in a new, exciting and much deeper level?
  • Is your marriage or life partnership in trouble, and you would like to turn it around?
  • Are you concerned that you are headed for a separation or divorce, and considering couples therapy sessions to help you change direction?
  • Are you searching for a skilled marriage counselor who will help you create the healthy relationship you never thought possible?
  • Are you interested in learning skills that will help you create more effective communication in your relationships, not only with your spouse or partner, but also with your children?
  • Are you trying to heal your relationship after a marital affair?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we admire you for wanting to fix what’s broken, build new and fresh opportunities to love and grow, and for wanting to love truly deeply again.

In private, full-day sessions, international relationship specialist Hedy Schleifer will guide you and your partner to Re-pair, Re-invent, Re-ignite, and Re-build your relationship.  Hedy has three main Private Intensive Programs for couples, and a Session for Family Members:

  • EcCT Intensive Therapy Session: Re-establish and strengthen your connection and partnership. You will learn practical tools for dissolving conflict, and how to be your partner’s best friend and healer.
  • Healing After an Affair: Repair the rupture in your relational bond created by an affair. Re-connect, restore compassion, forgiveness and intimacy, and learn how to make authentic mutual amends, and rebuild mutual trust for a new future together.
  • Constructive Closure: Cleanse the polluted relational space that exists between you and your partner before you go your separate ways. When children are involved, this becomes critical. Children thrive, even after divorce, when they’re allowed to have a secure relationship with both parents.
  • Family Intensive Session: Re-create and re-discover your connection with a father, mother, son or daughter, sister or brother, or any other member of your family.



You and your partner will learn effective communication skills, “dissolve” relational frustrations, and rekindle a passionate connection at the “A Couple’s Journey” Workshop for Couples. Hedy and Yumi will teach you to view conflict as a friend, and that daily annoying frustrations can become powerful vehicles for productive change. Your new and transformed connection will reignite your ability to have fun, romance, intimacy, and passion. The “A Couple’s Journey” workshop is available in Washington, DC and other cities throughout the world.



The Hybrid Couples Workshop / Private Session is available for a small group of six couples. It was created as a happy medium between the private session and the larger group workshop. In the Hybrid, you receive Hedy’s close attention and expertise, having the opportunity to work with Hedy one-on-one at least twice, and also have the benefit of learning from the other five couples in the group.
