This format is best for couples who want to to get a big bulk of their marriage work done at once.
Because the therapy room isn't "real life," I encourage couples to have follow-up therapy to transfer the work we do together to your real life. I want you to feel confident about applying your moves toward each other in the throes of your actual life! I’m happy to continue to work with you in couples counseling if there's room in my schedule or help secure the therapist that does the follow up work with you.
Why schedule a three-day intensive instead of weekly counseling?
Schedule & Availability
Three consecutive days (Thursday afternoon, Friday morning, Saturday morning).
Unlike weekly sessions, we can break when we need to. For intensives, I’m on call for you during our days together. Each couple is unique in the pace they want to work. It’s important for you to carve out space during the three days to concentrate on your marriage. The schedule during the day will flex based on how things are going.
First Day: Typically, I'll do one hour in the morning with both partners. After that, we'll break into individual sessions (each spouse for 30-45 minutes). By this time, everyone is ready for lunch. After an hour or so for lunch, we'll come back in the afternoon for more sessions with breaks as we need them.
Second and Third Days: We'll keep the same schedule, but without the individual sessions.
I’ll send a tentative schedule with times to couples after the intensive is booked.
