  • We were trying to deal with the aftermath of infidelity.

    I left the retreat with a much better understanding of what happened and with greater hope of getting through this stronger than before. An intensive private therapy session allows a level of exploration and reflection difficult to achieve with conventional therapy appointments.

  • 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.

Please note:

These weekend therapy retreats are not a magic formula. If one of you has little motivation to work on your marriage sincerely or is seriously considering divorce, please consider a discernment counseling retreat instead of a couples THERAPY retreat.

Your willingness and interest in improving your marriage are essential for this work’s success. You both need to be willing to look at your individual contribution to the state of your marriage instead of focusing the blame on your spouse.

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

Seek professional individual mental health services. Finding a professional who has specific training is your best option.
