Science-based couples therapy is marriage counseling using a structured, therapeutic approach to help couples. It is designed to slow you down and reconnect with yourself and your spouse. Online couples therapy is no different.

Many of us are navigating unprecedented changes in the ways that we work and live. And in these uncertain times, it's even more important that you support each other, interact together with greater warmth, and develop a deeper connection than ever before. 

You may feel like both of you are too distant, with too much baggage and damage done to save your marriage. But you owe it to yourselves and your family to try and improve your marriage one more time.

We've made our intensive couples therapy even more accessible online.

We begin all marriage counseling with an assessment.

An assessment is an organized way for your couples therapist to learn more about you and your relationship. It involves an extensive questionnaire that you and your partner complete on your own online (affectionately referred to as the BIG BIG Book), as well as three online sessions with your therapist (both individually and together). 

Ours is the most comprehensive marital assessment available today. We call it the "State of the Union". You will schedule it at your convenience and complete that part in a month (or less).

After your assessment, you will objectively know where you should focus your next three sessions. From there, your therapist will set the course for the next portion of your intensive. You and your partner will schedule a series of 3-hour blocks online (3 blocks in total). Just like the assessment portion, you will complete it at your convenience, this time completing it in 2 months (or less).

First study, then intervene.

Our “intensives” are our flagship service, and it’s what we’ve built our reputation around. Intensives are either two or three days in length. These intensives offer a unique "science-based" opportunity to get to the root of the problem and really enhance your bond. 

It's designed to radically stop a couple's fast-moving train to greater misery or divorce, or make a good marriage even better. 

This approach allows you to still access this highly-effective approach to couples therapy when a weekend away just won't work for your life.
