FLORIDA LESBIAN COUPLES RETREAT
Growing Relationships that Align How You Live and Love with Who You (Really) Are
Finding a skilled lesbian couples coach or counselor is no small feat. Add a pandemic to the mix and if you’re lucky, you’ll get on a waiting list to get help for your relationship.
Now that it is safe to gather again, we are offering our first retreat since early 2020. This time, we are headed to FLORIDA! This Lesbian Couples Retreat is part vacation-getaway and part intensive, customized help for your relationship! We have room for five couples – first come, first served!
We will gather for 4-days from October 13th to October 17th, 2021. You can expect to have a fantastic time, while nurturing your relationship with 15 hours of power-packed sessions designed to strengthen, repair and grow your relationship. Retreat sessions will be spread across the four days, allowing you time to play, relax, share meals with us, and adventure out on your own or with other couples.
Please Note: We are tracking the Covid-related events in Florida. Currently, we are planning to have the retreat as scheduled.
There are no bans on travel. To fly, you will need to show proof of vaccination or provide proof of a negative covid test that was conducted within 72 hours of boarding the plane and wear a mask.
We are committed to gathering safely and doing our part to reduce the spread of Covid. We ask that all retreat participants show proof of vaccination or wear a mask. If you opt to socialize outside around the pool, a mask is not required as long as you remain 6 feet apart from other couples.
Unless there is a ban on travel to FL, we intend to hold our retreat as planned. In the unlikely event that travel is banned, we will provide you a full refund of your registration payment.
“It’s a game changer for your relationship.”
Amanda Mellen (Austin, 2019)
We will gather in a spacious home (see photos), conveniently located 30 minutes from the Orlando International Airport. Each couple will have their own king-sized bed and room with a private bath.
“A mind-blowing experience in which I felt that Michele nurtured the relationship and our love for each other while gentling leading us to truths about ourselves.”

“I learned more about functional couple’s communication in one weekend than I have in over thirty years of working in the mental health field! I feel so fortunate to have attended during the early phases of a relationship so we can use the tools to lean into this love with confidence! THANK YOU!!”

I highly recommend it! It doesn’t matter what stage your relationship is in, this experience will benefit you. We were able to open up in a way we haven’t been able to do on our own, and we continue to use the skills at home. The friends we made were an added bonus, we had such a good time! I feel so thankful for the experience. No matter how things turn out we are going to be better co-parents to Greyson because of the tools and knowledge we gained, so thank you, I accomplished my goal.

Six Lesbian LoveCodes♥︎
The 6 Lesbian LoveCodes♥︎, developed by Michele O’Mara, Ph.D., offer you a step-by-step relationship transformation program that emphasizes what TO DO, rather than what to not do. With a fierce focus on WHAT WORKS, the learning process is more enjoyable. It always feels better when you set your sights on where you wish to head, rather than what you don’t want to be experiencing.
This retreat will introduce you to the fundamentals of a satisfying relationship and provide you specific tools and practices to create better behaviors, more effective communication, a more intimate connection, and a stronger relationship. Because you can not talk your way out of a relationship issue that you behaved your way into, we focus on the best relationship habits that, with practice, will lead you to lasting change and relationship satisfaction.
A feeling of fun, safety, and inclusion. Michele is highly skilled, real, and compassionate. The retreat allowed us to get real about our issues while making real progress in our relationship.
