What are our Retreats & Events about?

 2014-01-11 16.27.40


The WE3 Relationship Events, has up to 20 couples; we work through the format that we discuss in our book Reboot Your Relationshipwe look at the “I” e.g. who you are and why you do what you do, then move to the “we” e.g. how you both as individuals effect each other as a couple, then we focus on the “us” which is HOW you repair your relationship challenges and move forward together BOTH people happy. It is a very popular and successful event.

LA is normally held in Pasadena for the WE3 event. It is a gorgeous town.

Las Vegas is at Green Valley Ranch Casino, with access to the gorgeous “District” area.

Savannah + Joe +  the couple. Working together over two days.
“It was like having our relationship under stadium lights”


SOS Private Intensive is not a group program like workshops, seminars, or marriage encounters. The two of you will meet together with the two highly-trained Marriage and Family Therapists, Dr Joe Whitcomb, PhD, MS, LMFT, and Savannah Ellis, DBA, MBA, BSc, MPsy (Clinical).


“We have found that our private intensive couple-to-couple retreat (the four of us working together) is a highly effective way to help couples understand and resolve their problems, whether they are in a crisis and at a crossroad in their relationship… or hoping for a deeper intimate connection”.

– Savannah Ellis


Many couples come to us after an emotional or sexual affair, with one person wanting a divorce and the other person wanting to keep the relationship together. In this situation our job is to understand the roots of their problem, explore the options together, and help them make their momentous decision.

Unlike other programs, we advocate for marriage but not at any price. The objective of our marriage retreat is to support the two of you in your specific personal relationship goals, whatever they may be, while concurrently enhancing your relationship.

As a male & female therapist team, counseling couples for a combined 34 years, we have specific training in marriage therapy and marriage repair. We know personally and professionally about the challenges of modern day relationships. With this knowledge we bring to marriage therapy a blend of male and female perspectives and a comfort with the issues common to evolving relationships.

Whether it is to renew and awaken your fading love, repair a marriage that is ready to fall apart, or make a major relationship decision, our couple to couple intensive marriage retreat can help you gain insights into your personal situation while teaching you healthy communication skills to keep your discussions focused and fair.

Our work is professional and non-denominational. We believe that people have the right to be happy, and that children greatly benefit from authentically happy parents, and that the most important goal is to follow the truth… to treat each other honestly… and to do that with love and respect.

Our three-day weekend or midweek marriage retreat has been designed for the couple wanting a private counseling experience that is deeper and more comprehensive than that which they may have experienced in regular weekly counseling sessions. The marriage retreat is offered regularly throughout the year in both Las Vegas, Nevada & Santa Monica, California.
