Just a simple hug can make a huge difference! What a great reminder to never underestimate the power of connection and its profound impact on us.

Weโ€™ve been asked, โ€œWhat differentiates the therapy you provide from other couples counseling?โ€

Between us, we have six decades of training in state-of-the-art couples therapy. We translate the latest research into compassionate, practical guidance drawing on our expertise to create the best and most lasting results for your unique relationship needs. Every day, we use our own marriage as a living, loving laboratory for practicing and perfecting the skills and techniques that we bring to your sessions.

We know from research that touch is crucial in creating and strengthening romantic relationships. Conflicts are resolved more easily with increased amounts of physical affection. TIP: Make an effort to touch your partner frequently in the ways they love to be touched.

Every day in therapy, we see couples who feel more disconnected and less intimate with each other. As married therapists, weโ€™re gratified to use our own experience and training to guide those couples to a healthier, happier . The truth is that great relationships take work. The secret is that the work can be fun! Combining a with a path to a happier future is the best of both worlds. So mark the date, register today, and pack your bags. September 26th is closer than you think!

Not being appreciated is one of the top complaints we hear in therapy. We suggest a morning ritual of giving appreciations so your partner feels valued. Try this: "One thing you did today that I really appreciated was..." or "That was important to me because..." or "It made me feel..."

How does it make you feel when your partner asks you for something? When we want to create a giving relationship, the best strategy is to give. How can we give in ways that matter to our partners?

Sexual Intimacy: Part 1 | Mindful Monday with Craig & Debbie 06/10/2021

Sexual Intimacy: Part 1 | Mindful Monday with Craig & Debbie

When we first encounter our partner, intimacy, s*x and romance are in full force. Oxytocin is running like crazy through our bodies so we are on a true hormonal high and our partner can do no wrong. Everything is perfect... until its not. So the question always remains, how do we maintain or bring back intimacy s*x and romance into our lives after the romance period has past? Here, we provide practical tips for how to cultivate and nurture increased intimacy in a relationship.

A master relationship skill is owning up to your part no matter how small, in a heart felt wayโ€ฆ and remembering how much you care about this person, more than being right.

โ€œExperiencing conflict as a couple can ultimately bring you closer. We know, it sounds counterintuitive, but at the heart of every conflict is the seed of our desire and unmet needs. Uncovering and communicating those needs and desires is the foundation of a healthy, loving relationship.โ€

-- From The Mindful Couple by Craig & Debbie Lambert

The path from conflict to love requires a skillset most of us havenโ€™t learned. Itโ€™s a bit like asking your accountant to paint your house: it will be messy and the result wonโ€™t make you happy. Our job is to help you turn conflict into opportunity. Thatโ€™s why we are devoting a full day to conflict on our upcoming Luxury Couples Retreat (with , meals, and to keep it light). Are you ready to change your relationship for the better?

Timeline photos 05/26/2021

โ€œDo you want to be right, or do you want to be in relationship?โ€ Because you canโ€™t always have both. You canโ€™t cuddle up and relax with 'being right' after a long day.โ€

We love this quote from one of Craig's mentors, bestselling author and couples therapist Harville Hendrix. So many couples have the same arguments over and over because they're invested in being right. At our upcoming Couples Retreat, we'll give you the tools to break the cycle. If being right is standing in the way of a happy relationship, please reach out to learn more.

Love matters most but sometimes life gets in the way. At our upcoming Couples Retreat, weโ€™re focusing on the three pillars of relationship health: Conflict, Communication, and Intimacy. Twice-daily dynamic workshops will give you the mindset and tools to thrive, renewing your connection and reinvigorating love!

Hereโ€™s a great article from Psychology Today about the pros and cons of taking a vacation as a couple. Creating memories, sharing novel experiences, and stepping away from kids and work can strengthen your love bond. On the other hand, long-haul travel can be stressful, and too much time together might magnify existing tensions. Consider something closer to home like our couples retreat to reap the benefits of a vacation without doing more harm than good.



"My husband and I attended your webinar last summer. We found it so insightful, helpful and informative...My husbandโ€™s little brother just got engaged and as an engagement gift, we bought them The Mindful Couple book. We plan on reading through the entire book with them and having a mini book club together! I just wanted to let you guys know that the knowledge you have received from your teachers and have shared with others is continuing to go forth into the world! We are so grateful to have come into contact with your work and are excited to share it with others."

Something to Think About:

Have you ever noticed that we tend to focus on whatโ€™s going wrong with our relationship rather than whatโ€™s going right? This is what psychologists and sociologists refer to as โ€œnegativity bias.โ€ When we experience negativity bias in our romantic relationship what often happens is we assume a negative outcome before it actually happens and often before we have a reason to believe it will turn out negatively.

Intention versus Impact - Lambert Couples Therapy

When we say things that upset or offend the person we love, our immediate reaction is to explain our real intention. However, our partner doesnโ€™t want to hear about our intentions. Feeling wounded, they want us to care about the outcome of our actions, the impact. Click below to read more:
