Restore your loving connection.

Our science-based approach heals intimate bonds. It's been clinically proven to lessen or alleviate relationship distress and enhance marital satisfaction. Connect with our most experienced couples therapists, using the most effective couples therapy methods. Dramatically improve your chances for success.

Who we are

Couples Therapy Inc. is a team of over two dozen clinicians practicing in thirty US states and four countries. Many of us have 20-30 years of experience. Collectively we've spent over five hundred years helping couples. All of us have science-based training. 

Couples therapy is not just our specialty, it's all that we do.

What we do

Science has taught us that working intensively helps you develop stronger bonds more effectively than the same amount of time spread over weekly sessions. Devote a weekend. You'll come away from your intensive retreat with the tools you need to resolve conflicts, repair broken bonds, and become closer as a couple. You'll begin with an extensive assessment.

Why an assessment?

A concentrated assessment informs the therapeutic process. It explores the roots of your daily tensions enabling you both to enjoy greater marital happiness. We help you to target these sticking points 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 using our online marriage counseling assessment instrument coined "The BIG BIG Book."

Get started now. You'll receive your copy of the BIG BIG Book as soon as you reserve your intensive couples therapy. Only our experienced clinicians are trained to study and effectively interpret your every word using this unparalleled instrument.

We focus on you as well as your relationship. A thorough assessment answers relevant questions about your family history, current sleep patterns, work stresses, support systems, hobbies, and more.

Intensive online couples counseling
- without leaving home.

COVID-19 has stopped our face-to-face in-person couples retreats for now, but we continue to offer the same science-based therapy in an online format. Dive right in now and start completing your comprehensive online assessment tool. Work privately from home or nearby lodging. Take "us time" and immerse yourselves in learning essential tools for better relating. 

These weekends are private and individually tailored. One couple to one skilled professional.

Book in 3 simple steps:

1. Are your marital goals a good fit for this format? Schedule a no charge appointment with one of our therapists in your state to discuss your situation. They will recommend the best course of action for you.

2. Schedule your online couples retreat. Weekends are limited. Book now for the best available dates.

3. After you've scheduled your services with us, create a comfortable and private place in your home or find an intimate get-away for your therapeutic time. You'll be using our high-resolution, secure, HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing program. We provide ample time for breaks, lunch and evenings off. 

Words of praise

"Before Couples Therapy Inc., we went to someone who was totally unqualified to handle our needs. I was going to file for divorce. Lisa was so helpful in the way she kept us on track and figured out what we should be working on to get the maximum benefit in the time frame we had.
It was emotionally, spiritually, and physically moving. I'm very happy
"We had tried several different couples therapy previously with limited success and not lasting. We were recommended to look into an intensive session thinking that issues need more than an hour to get to the heart of the matter.

Dr. Mike is an incredible therapist and teacher. He was incredibly skilled at staying present with the emotions that came up and patient with each of us so we could stay on the topic and go deeper. He was also very empathic.

I saw my partner in a different light and was able to set aside fear. Don't let fear keep you from seeing your partner for who they want to be seen as.

I would definitely recommend Couples Therapy Inc."


-Puerto Rico-

"The trust in our relationship had been compromised. We needed a therapist that could work virtually, as well as be fluent in English and Spanish. We were also looking for somebody with training in the Gottman method, at the suggestion of my Cognitive-behavioral therapist.

Dr.. Rodriguez was a perfect fit.

I did not know what to expect. I had never done therapy virtually before, so I wasn’t sure how much of an impact therapy would have on us this way. But it certainly did have a huge and positive impact! I would highly encourage couples who are considering this to go for it. Personally, I don’t think my partner and I would’ve been able to make it work on our own at that point in our relationship without it. "

Do it for yourself.
Do it for each other.

A secure relationship provides a richer quality of life and a deeper, more intimate friendship.
Are you ready? Don't put it off.
