Restore your loving connection.

Our science-based couples counseling retreat heals intimate bonds. It has been clinically proven to reduce relationship distress and improve relationship satisfaction. Our experienced couples therapists can help you achieve this, either in person or in virtual couples therapy.

We use the most effective couples therapy methods. They dramatically improve your chances for success.

Who we are

Couples Therapy Inc. is a team of over two dozen licensed therapists practicing across the US states (including Puerto Rico) and four countries. Many of us have 20-30 years of experience as couples therapists. All of us have advanced training or certification in the famous Gottman Method developed by John and Julie Gottman.

We've treated couples in weekly therapy in the past, even in behavioral couples therapy. We have felt the frustration of the "drip, drip, drip" of weekly work, offering too little time to get to the heart of the matter. 

We learned that evidence-based training wasn't enough to provide what retreats offer. Couples therapy is our specialty. It's also our only focus.

What we do

Devote a weekend for in-person therapy sessions or online couples therapy. Develop the tools you'll need to resolve conflicts, repair broken bonds, and become closer as a couple. 

Science has shown that working intensively helps you develop stronger bonds more effectively than the same amount of time spread over weekly sessions. 

You'll begin with an extensive assessment.

Why an assessment?

An assessment helps to identify the roots of your daily tensions and enables you to target these areas more effectively.

This reduces your stress and saves you time and money.

You begin your journey by providing us an in-depth picture of you and your relationship. Our unique online marriage counseling assessment instrument is coined "The BIG BIG Book."  We forward your BIG BIG Book immediately after you reserve your intensive couples therapy.

Our clinicians undergo extensive training in order to effectively interpret this instrument of unparalleled depth. We ask questions about you as a person, as a member of your original family, your friendships, and much much more. It includes the famous Gottman Institute’s assessment instrument designed by John Gottman.

we offer A couple in online marriage counseling retreats.

In person or online help

Now our doors are open once again to in-person therapy retreats for couples within the state or those willing to travel. 

Try online marriage counseling retreats - from home.

Sometimes obligations to family members stop couples from getting the help they need. But with online couples therapy, you can tackle premarital counseling issues, relationship issues, and even your intimate lives as romantic partners. 

Our online couples therapy offers both of you the time to learn essential skills for better relating.

Many of our clients argue it was as effective as in person. This intensive psychotherapy for couples is uniquely tailored to your needs. Not a group experience - one professional to help you alone.

Do it for yourself.
Do it for each other.

A secure bond brings both a deeper, more personal friendship, and greater intimacy.
