    Recent client reports
  • Before the weekend, it was impossible to talk about the relationship without arguments.

    We are now able to work through most of our major disagreements. There has definitely been a shift to continued and better communication. We feel closer. Like two steps forward one step back, whereas before it felt like one step forward, two steps back.

    Recent client reports
  • Previous couples therapy was not helpful.

    We felt consecutive hours might propel us to a faster resolution. It allowed for undivided attention to be focused on the relationship. Now we are seeing each others’ perspectives. We have self-awareness, talking tools.

    Recent client reports
  • Beyond my expectations.

    Our couples therapist put together my life into an understanding that 2 decades worth of therapy was unable to do. It allowed me to recognize the reason for my behavior and the change needed. We had an incredible couples intensive which put us on the track for success!

  • Marathon Couples Therapy

    It was a difficult, intense experience but necessary. I think the format (marathon couples therapy) is great for busy people who are feeling stuck. It’s efficient. You’ll learn a lot in a short period of time.

    Recent client reports
  • I had filed for divorce.

    Our core issues were outbursts of anger, different beliefs in parenting style, and a profound inability to communicate effectively. We now know what triggers to avoid and are making changes.

    Recent client reports
  • I wanted to stop feeling angry so much of the time.

    Since the intensive, I don’t feel so angry with my husband. He is doing so much more and is kinder to me. We have experienced improved fondness and general kindness throughout the day, we have recommitment to working together, and we address difficult issues more gently.

    Recent client reports
  • Good core relationship but devoid of intimacy.

    We became closer immediately and we knew what we had to work on to keep our relationship healthy. “Maintenance” lists were given and many resources that do/will help down the road.

Please note:

These weekend therapy retreats are not a magic formula. If one of you has little motivation to work on your marriage in a sincere way or is seriously considering divorce, your therapist may recommend a discernment counseling retreat instead of our couples THERAPY retreat.

Your willingness and interest in improving your marriage is essential for this work to succeed. It takes both of you to be open and willing to change.

Couples therapy (including John Gottman’s methods and Emotionally focused therapy) does not work with the following: domestic violence, suicide prevention, personality disorders or alcohol and drug abuse that requires inpatient care.

Seek professional individual mental health services. Finding mental health professionals who have specifically trained is your best option.
