Vacation planning is lackluster, and the kids are tense. What's more, we know from over 40 years of research studying couples, you're the worst judge of how bad things are. You're likely to feel hopeless and helpless about the possibility of ever turning things around.

What Our Couples Are Saying

We were on the brink of divorce and had trust, infidelity, communication, partnership issues. My husband thought we couldn't possibly benefit from just three days. 

Our therapist was down to earth, genuine, kind, nonjudgmental, a good listener, creative, funny, sincere, caring, compassionate. I feel like she was truly partnering with us to save our relationship. She showed that she cared about us early on and seemed to have a vested interest in seeing us succeed together.

We've learned to love each other better than we ever thought was possible.

From the moment he spoke I found our therapist open and approachable. I enjoyed the perfect blend of professionalism and warmth. I sensed I could trust the level of expertise combined with what seemed to be a down to earth approach and unwavering integrity.  I'm relaxed. I feel respect for my husband again. We can love one another through issues.

I would absolutely recommend Couples Therapy Inc. to others. I already have and will continue to do so. Because too many couples give up instead of standing up!

Our marriage was fractured. Trust had been violated in a big way and I was reeling from my husband’s infidelity.

I was certain I would not be able to get over what my husband did.

Marisa Mundey was incredibly good at demonstrating empathy, and creating space. You can also tell that she did her homework. 

I felt heard and understood for the first time in a long time. And now I can start to heal. We know how to better communicate and ensure the other person is heard.

Trust the process. It is possible to have the marriage you want and deserve. CTI can help you get there.

The Weekend Marriage Retreat Schedule for Texas

Retreats have their own pace. Your relationship assessment continues from the instrument you complete online into the therapy room on Friday evening. It takes more than a day for you to integrate and incorporate changes to your relationship.

Our three day schedule leaves plenty of time for breaks and meals, while allowing you to spend two evenings alone. Here is the schedule:

Friday Evening Warm-up

 6-8 pm (unless otherwise scheduled)

Saturday Morning

9:30 - Noon  Videotaping & Individual Interviews 

Saturday Afternoon

1:30-4:30 PM  Feedback Session and Start of Treatment

Sunday Morning

9:30 AM - Noon  Check in and Treatment Continues

Sunday Afternoon - 

1:15- 4:15 PM  Intensive focus on Key Problem Areas - 

Late Afternoon Sunday

4:15-4:30 PM  Wrap-up and Feedback


It surprises our couples to learn how much they've changes over a weekend, and some have no need to continue. But if they want reinforcement, we have plenty of post-intensive help available to you. We'll work with you in person, online, or even in another intensive. Your therapist will know exactly the sort of help that will be most impactful to both of you.

What Makes Us Different

While dentists and brain surgeons both work on heads, these disciplines require different training and ongoing experience. The same is true for couples therapy. To be truly skilled, the counselor working with you needs to have significant experience gained after graduate school in helping couples.

Equally important, they must spend the vast majority of their professional lives working with couples. Our specialty is working with couples in an intensive format. And working with couples is all we do.

Sex Retreats in Texas

Our therapists can help you get closer in an intimacy retreat in Texas. Every assessment includes an evaluation of your sexual lives.

Demonstrated expertise

The Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy have demonstrated their effectiveness in research studies. 70-92% in clinical studies.

A Team Supports You

We aren't a collection of individuals. We're a team of couples therapists who meet together monthly to hone our teaching of relationship skills in this challenging work.
