A 2-day intensive is a jump start to couples counseling (or in some cases, a “help us get unstuck” if already in couples therapy). You and your partner are given space to have new conversations that change your relationship.
Because the therapy room isn't "real life" I really encourage couples to have follow-up therapy to transfer the work we do together in the intensive 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 with you in follow-up therapy if I have room in my schedule or to help secure a different therapist.
Why schedule a two-day intensive instead of weekly counseling?
Schedule & Availability
Weekday Options (Available M-F, depending on what’s already on the books).
Unlike weekly sessions, we can break when we need to. For intensives, I’m on call for you during the days we spend together. Each couple is unique in the pace they want to work. It’s important for you to carve out space during the two 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 partner 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 Day: We'll keep the same schedule, but without the individual sessions.
After the intensive is booked, I’ll send an email with a tentative schedule with times.
