“There is an inherent universal need in human beings for a safe haven relationship where a loved one is experienced as emotionally accessible and responsive so that this person can be depended on.” – Dr. Sue Johnson


Leading authors on marriage have said this about Hold Me Tight:

“ At last a road map through Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy with its creator: Dr. Johnson’s  superb science, humor, and clinical wisdom are finally accessible to all of us. I couldn’t pick a smarter, warmer, and more real guide for this journey.”

John Gottman, PhD.


“Wonderful!…Hold Me Tight blends the best in research findings with practical suggestions from a caring and compassionate clinician. This … will be of great benefit… to couples trying to find their way to better communication and deeper more fulfilling ways of being with each other. Bravo!”

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.


standingtall3 Day Intensive Outpatient Program


Find Answers— Discover Life! 

The Intensive Outpatient Program for pornography and sexual addiction is a therapeutic non-residential program that offers intensive, multi-day outpatient experience.

At LifeStar Alberta, our three day Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for those who would benefit most from a highly intensive and experiential approach to treating compulsive sexual behaviours and sex addiction. The program offers many of the benefits of a longer-term inpatient program, while making it more affordable and manageable for people with busy schedules.

 Recovery is Possible!


Support for the Partner


We strongly believe that support for the partner is critical to healing the relationship and for the partner’s personal healing process. The partner can learn about the addiction and the impact it has had on them. In a safe, compassionate environment, the partner will gain an understanding of the addiction and tools to regain their life.
