See what people are saying about this weekend...

Alexa Young, CA

"...just for us to get together and just to open up, relax, and just be free for a day and just.enjoy each other's company and learn from one another. The food was absolutely good, oh my god, the mimosas were off the chain, okay!"

Morgan James, NY

"...definitely not a Mean Girls Brunch. It was definitely a Brunch of two days of enlightenment and enjoyment of Sisterhood and just learning about our emotional well -being and the benefit of making therapy a lifestyle."

Lisa Driver, MI

"I feel more confident. I feel more capable. A lot of the things that we think about and what we say to ourselves; the self -doubt, the negative talk; we addressed it all ."

Special Guest

Joe and Leslie

Featured Couple on OWN's Black Love Documentary


Let's talk Mental Health in the Black Family and Relationships

Joe and Leslie have been together for 22 years, and are currently in their sweet 16 year of marriage. They have five children, 3 boys and 2 girls. They are Digital Content creators that focus on fashion, home design, and overall lifestyle. 


This journey began with Leslie entering the blog space in 2014, with a YouTube channel “Make Up Talks and Beauty Walks”. The goal was to show women how to apply makeup and coordinate their outfits, but Leslie soon realized this space was oversaturated. 


She decided to pivot and include her entire family into her styling efforts, right down to the dog. She would incorporate color schemes and captions that were in line with how she felt, as an outlet to the experience of being a wife and mom. She worked diligently, lining everyone up in color coordinated outfits, until one day, when a black and white adidas outfit went viral, and their social media following went from 3200 to over 10,000. 


Since shifting into family styling, they have secured major partnerships with brands such as Target, Amazon, and Disney and their following is currently over 280,000 people. They continue to include captions that are authentic to their voice and experiences as well as make content that respectfully gives us glimpses into their everyday lives. 


As a family, they live by phrase, Team Work Makes the Dream Work”, but as a couple, Joe and Leslie live by the phrase, “Love Is A Verb”. 


They were featured on the documentary “Black Love”, where they had the opportunity to discuss the journey of their relationship and how it has shapeshifted, over the last 20 years. 


Join us for a candid conversation on what it’s like to be a parent, a husband, a wife, a man, a woman, and all of the other identities that are wrapped up in being a content creating family of 7. We’re going to tap into how they stay connected as a couple, how they stay grounded as an individual, and how they stay solid for their children.

Wellness is not solely about taking a bubble bath or a girls trip to Tulum. While a break is an awesome way to replenish yourself, true wellness is living a life you do not consistently need a break from. 

The Therapy Is A Lifestyle Retreat is all about curating a lifestyle that supports balance, joy, and peace.

This two-day event begins on Saturday August 10, in Torrance, CA. Here, you will attend a full day workshop complete with classes and breakout sessions to help you discuss and process the new information you have learned. It concludes with Sunday Brunch on August 11, at the beautiful Los Verdes Golf Course.


Experience Day 1 of the Therapy Is a Lifestyle 2-Day Wellness Retreat, set against the stunning backdrop of Southern California's beautiful South Bay. 


This year, immerse yourself in dynamic mental wellness tools that will revolutionize your relationship with yourself and others.


During our Saturday workshop, you'll embark on a journey of self-discovery guided by renowned mental wellness expert, Dr. Glenna. Delve into the science behind change and habit formation, gaining insights into the transformative power of mental wellness management. 


This year's topics include:

Session 1: 

The Side Effects of Growth: What to do with the not so cute stuff that comes with growth. Sure having peace is the goal, but what do you do when you outgrow your favorite friend? When you realize you have been mistreated and you don't fit that space anymore? Let's be honest, it can get lonely keeping those healthy boundaries! Let's talk about the not so glamorous side of healing and growth and learn how to manage it in our lives.

Session 2: 

Healing in Motion: Moving forward with everyday life when you aren't fully healed. We've all been there, broken on the inside, but at the grocery picking up milk because life doesn't stop. The solution isn't to hide in our house until we feel better, but it also isn't to pretend like it doesn't exist. Let's learn how to manage and heal from our hurt without ignoring our feelings and while still living our day to day lives.

Session 3:

Men with Dr. Rob J. Thrash IV

Men thrive when we have practical tools and strategies to prioritize and maintain our wellbeing amidst the unique challenges posed by today’s climate. During our time together, we will unpack The Well Formula of engaging, implementing, connecting, and reflecting, and supporting each other in this journey towards holistic wellbeing.

Women with Dr. Glenna

Managing Your Mantle: How to do what you are called to do, as a woman, without cracking. You have responsibilities... and you're good at it! But are you managing your life and your time in a way that supports balance, downtime, and rest? Or have you designed your life to make sure everyone and everything is taken care BUT you? Let's work together to learn how to say no, delegate some tasks, and feel good about having balance in your life.

Session 4: 

Radical Self Acceptance: Accepting yourself, half healed and all. Sometimes all of our ducks are in a row... and other times, we just have to grab our ducks and run across the street. Stop waiting for things to be perfect! Let's learn how to see who we are today, practice acceptance, while still setting our goals for what we want to be tomorrow. 

New to this year's program is a special focus on Black Men and Mental Health, featuring esteemed guest presenter Dr. Rob J. Thrash IV. Explore this important topic in a supportive and inclusive environment, and gain valuable insights into mental wellness within the Black community.
