Confident Caregiving
2-Day Retreat


Registration for the Spring 2024 2-Day Retreat is closed. 

Please be sure to enter your email below to get my newsletter with exclusive updates on upcoming workshop opportunities. 

If you have come across this workshop, I can imagine that you are desperate to help your loved one. You are standing by, watching, as they do battle with their mental health issues- anxiety, depression, eating disorders- and you feel like your hands are tied. You want to help, but you are terrified of saying or doing the wrong thing and making it worse. No one should have to feel this way. You sense you could help- you love them after all- if you only knew how. 


Using the skills we will cover in this 2-Day Emotion-Focused Family (EFFT) Retreat, I have helped hundreds of Caregivers regain their sense of confidence in supporting their loved one- of any age- with any mental health issue. 


If you want more tools on how to help your loved one on a path toward mental wellness, this is an invaluable resource. These skills will take you from stress and conflict to calm and connection with your loved one. 


Research has shown this exact 2-Day Curriculum leads to:

  • a decrease in Caregiver’s fear and self-blame

  • an increase in confidence in supporting your loved one

  • significant improvement in the loved one’s symptoms.


Yes. A workshop YOU take can help significantly reduce your loved one’s symptoms. You knew you could help and you were right, you just need the right tools. 



  • 2-Days from 9 am-4 pm with an hour break for lunch each day and breaks throughout the day

  • in-person at The Eating Disorder Foundation

  • Enrollment will be limited to to provide the maximum amount of 1:1 support throughout the workshop and chance to connect with one another


In the 2-Days, we will cover:

  • Caregiver Blocks (how to manage the fears and feelings that can get in the way of showing up how we want to for our loved ones)

  • Emotion Coaching (what to say in tough conversations)

  • Behavior Coaching (how to help your loved one stop doing things that are hurting them and move toward better coping skills) 

  • Therapeutic Apology (a powerful intervention to help address your loved one’s blame towards you or your own self-blame). 


If you aren’t convinced that YOU doing a workshop can actually help your loved one, check out this video from the Co-Founder of EFFT, the brillant Adele Lafrance on
