It is life changing!

We were very close to separation, the major issue related to an affair, but this led to some very poor patterns of communication.

We chose Couples Therapy Inc after a review of the evidence base, along with the fact that it was 1:1 and very rigorous pre-counseling assessments. I had concerned it would be the final nail in the coffin for our marriage.

Jack O’Leary was genuine, challenging, caring and flexible. We have much better patterns of communication and a resolution of some very core issues. And more admiration and affection to one another and finally, better individual health. He saved my marriage and my life (work, wellbeing, etc).

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?

Do it - it is life changing! You both have to be ready to reflect and change - if you are ready, it can help.

Just truly amazing—thank you for dedicating your lives to something that helps other lives.

Before the retreat our relationship was horrible!!! We tried other couples therapy and it was not successful at all...y'all offered something drastic and different and that is what we needed.

We have a better understanding of managing the gridlock and when to step back and deal with certain emotions that are not productive. We have understanding, patience, and acceptance when we don’t agree.

We walked away laughing and having such a great time!!! We are dedicated to our marriage and Alisha Powell gave us the tools we needed to stay dedicated. I hate knowing people aren't aware of Couples Therapy Inc. before divorce papers are signed. This system can save marriages and it can prevent marriages from happening.

Just truly amazing—thank you for dedicating your lives to something that helps other lives.

Past therapy seemed to have only caused more problems...

Past therapy seemed to have only caused more problems. We were concerned about the cost, given the value of our past therapy. But I wanted to improve my intimate relationship with my spouse.

This therapy was successful and effective. It gave us exactly what we needed to address, we resolved issues verses fighting about them. We have better intimacy, regular relationship, and overall feeling of closeness. The ability to discuss verses arguing. Dr. Wolfe was excellent.

Overall, it was excellent and effective. Our therapist was excellent and high quality. He did an outstanding job.

It is the best $ we have invested for our family!!!

Before working with Couples Therapy Inc. we felt disconnect and trouble communicating our needs. Jack O’Leary made us think and helped us to go within and find the answers ourselves! He created a gentle safe space. He listened and was able to always be objective whilst remaining sensitive to us. I loved his empowering solution-based approach.

We were hesitant to start because of the big financial investment. However, now we both remembered how much we love each other and how amazing our marriage can be. I became a lot more aware of my need to communicate my own needs clearly to my husband. I felt I could ask myself "what is this anger/frustration telling me about my needs and how can I clearly and lovingly communicate that."

It is the best $ we have invested for our family!!! I felt reconnected to and loved by my husband again. I felt I could communicate my needs to him better. I felt hope, optimism and enthusiasm about remaining married to my husband.

I liked everything about Jenny Fang.

Our relationship was volatile and unstable. Disconnected. I wanted to make some sense out of it more than anything and attempt to reconnect with my partner. I wanted to establish mutual respect between us. I had hesitation due to the price. Also a deep-seated mistrust of therapists. We hadn't been in couples therapy before.

What changes resulted in your marriage/relationship resulted from your work with Couples Therapy Inc.?

There is now mutual respect and greater understanding between us which I hope will last. More respect, dignity, and compassion for my partner.

Who was your therapist? What specific qualities did you like most and least about working with this therapist?

Jenny Fang. I liked everything about Jenny. She was thoughtful, intuitive and caring yet firm. She was great to work with.

Would you recommend your couples therapist and Couples Therapy Inc.? If so, why? If not, why not?

I'm not sure. I am suffering from a lot of anxiety and depression as a result of this I fear. I am a little confused and wondering what to do next. I wish I was able to consult my therapist about the after effects of this as part of this package.

What three benefits resulted from working with Couples therapy Inc.?

Respect , dignity, and compassion for my partner

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?

Be careful this may mess with your head. It is definitely worth it however.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I am confused and a little lost.

Dr. Mike McNulty was an intensive listener.

Our relationship was AT RISK. We were in "regular" [traditional] couples’ therapy but the frequency was inadequate (1x 5-6/weeks)

Dr. Mike McNulty was an intensive listener and had a surprising ability to control the room. I had a personal breakthrough on a childhood issue and some realization of wife's childhood issues. We now have an appreciation for one another, an agreement to move forward on a defined path, and an agreement to continue individual therapy and switching to Gottman couples therapy.

Our relationship was almost over...

I was hesitant about spending a substantial amount of money with no results. However, our relationship was almost over. We had poor communication and high-stress levels. This was more of a scientific approach. Dr. K was very neutral and explained things very well.

It's only been a week but our relationship has definitely improved. We have better communication and understanding each other better and the stress level between us has also decreased. I had no hope before going to see Kathy. Now I know we've got a chance to mend our relationship.

I would definitely recommend Couples Therapy Inc.

Our New Year is filled with hope and love.

We were on the brink of divorce. Barely speaking. I was afraid there was no hope and couples therapy would solidify that. I had brought my partner to my individual therapist. It was not successful. I found it hard to talk about my past. Dr. Gorman was amazing, nonjudgmental, and was able to help us open up and be honest with each other in safe environment. We are able to understand the other person better and have new tools to keep us from attacking when we are angry or withdrawn.

My husband and I are able to identify the triggers in our relationship, we can communicate without fear and we now have options to help us calm down and focus on what is important. Thank you, Dr. Gorman. You are a wonderful person and the best therapist we have ever met. I am so grateful for your expertise and patience. Our New Year is filled with hope and love.

I can't express how impressed my wife and I are with Havi.

Our relationship was cold and icy. We didn't fight much, if at all, and we lived our lives like roommates and had a difficult time opening up and getting past the boredom and dullness of a 7 year marriage with kids. Havi Klifeld was amazing! I felt very comfortable with her from the start - like I've known her my entire life or like she could be a best friend. She was very warm and inviting and really took the time to listen to my partner and I. Havi is very professional and she knows her material well. Other therapists my wife and I visited tried to teach us material from Gottman, but it wasn't presented well and it was lost on us. Havi is an excellent teacher. Couples Therapy Inc, in many respects, was our last effort to repair our relationship. However, it should have been our FIRST choice. If we had led with Couples Therapy Inc, we would have repaired our marriage years ago and with much less pain and suffering. I can't express how impressed my wife and I are with Havi. She's really amazing!

The intensive allowed for a deeper dive.

We needed to work on trust and intimacy. We were concerned, however, that an Intensive would be too much. Instead, the intensive allowed for a deeper dive, instant practice on repairing with each other, and a chance to start the earnest repair sooner than we would have. It was easy to organize and a good investment in their relationship.

We learned techniques for improving our connection.

Angela was fine. She was very good at getting to the root of our problems.

These sessions opened my eyes to many of the marriage issues between us.

I appreciate very much Angela's efforts with my spouse and I during this past week. These sessions opened my eyes to many of the marriage issues between us and I believe they helped deepen our love and commitment to one another.

Also, the sessions were not as hard as I expected them to be.

Angela is that reason. Her patience, softness and her understanding helped to bring us together and enabled us to see for ourselves what is most important in our lives and marriage.

Neither of us could leave until the day was over and the therapist was there as a referee.

Our relationship was terrible, core issues were trust and communication. We did therapy a couple of years ago, it was not successful. We chose CTI because we wanted consecutive sessions as to not lose track of topics by going to weekly therapy. There haven’t been any changes as of yet.

Angela was calm and direct which was appreciated. I’m not certain that I would recommend it [CTI]. It was helpful to get everything out in a faster manner however you think of additional topics that could have been spoken about afterward [when you get home]. I believe there could have been a bit more one-on-one time with the therapist as well as one-on-one time on the last day of the retreat.

Benefits were the consecutive hours to try and work things out, neither of us could leave until the day was over and the therapist was there as a referee.

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?

Go into it knowing that the therapist is there for those couple days but to carry on the lessons is extremely difficult without someone being the referee.

My husband thought we couldn't possibly benefit from just three days....

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. Marisa 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 and to learn to love each other better than we ever thought was possible.

He seemed to genuinely want us to stay together...

Dan's most admirable quality as our therapist was that he seemed to genuinely want us to stay together and work to fix our marriage. I never felt like he was just coldly and indifferently going through the academic motions of a therapist.

His input felt more like a family member with a lot of training and wisdom advising us on how to better communicate, understand each other, and unpack our various individual and joint issues. Dan had a genuine humility, which made his at times challenging demands of us much more palatable. I never felt bullied or obligated to do anything.

We were worried that it would be as ineffective as other therapy.

Our marriage was very troubled. We had trouble communicating and resolving issues.

We had tried couples therapy several times, and it was a waste of time and money. We were worried that this therapy would be as ineffective as that other therapy we tried. Jenny Fang was well researched, intuitive, and positive. She helped us focus on building a better future rather than arguing about the past. Now we are more appreciative of each other and able to engage in effective communication, I have a better understanding of where we each come from and how that affects how we, each, perceive the world. I also have a better appreciation of the goodness in my partner. For a couple in trouble this has been the best experience.

She didn't make me feel like the "bad guy" or baby my partner for being the "victim.”

Our relationship was very rocky because of a recent affair, which had my partner wanting to leave me.

We never tried couples therapy before.

Angela was very honest and understanding of both of our sides but didn't baby us. She didn't make me feel like the "bad guy" or baby my partner for being the "victim.” She gave us concrete tools to work on our marriage. We would have liked even more "scenarios" to test out different techniques of discussing conflicts, etc.

It worked to get my partner in the mindset to work on things. There is more understanding and willingness on my partner's part to work on things.

My partner is open to working on the marriage, she understood why I had the affair and we felt positive about our marriage after the therapy.

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?

Do it.

I am feeling positive about the future.

I was close to accepting that our relationship was over. We were not getting anywhere and needed intervention.

The intensive mode was preferable and in a safe place away from our home town. My husband told me the research showed the intensive mode was more successful than ongoing therapy.

Jack was fabulous and was very knowledgeable. He challenged us both and was professional at all times. I felt very safe with him.

I feel much more on track and able to have better discussions with my husband. My husband has also accepted some responsibility for aspects of the problems so I am feeling positive about the future.

It was extremely worthwhile and got our relationship back on track.

What three benefits resulted from working with Couples therapy Inc.?

  • Better communication
  • Clear strategies to improve communication
  • Honesty with each other

Jack O’Leary was honest and direct.

My relationship was in a state of chronic crisis. I wanted to improve our communication and have an opportunity for a therapist to help guide our conversations so they could be productive. We tried couples therapy last year but only had 2 sessions as my husband was not willing to talk with a counselor.

I was looking for something close to Brisbane or Toowoomba in Queensland and the price was reasonable compared to other similar intensive counseling services in the area.

I had no hesitations. I was eager to move forward.

Jack O’Leary was honest and direct. He told us he's not here to tiptoe around issues and he will call out our bad behaviour and address things that need addressing. I really liked that and is exactly what we needed and why we came for the weekend.

The intensive weekend is a great way to kick start the therapy process and breakdown those initial barriers.

No major changes resulted, it was more of a discernment weekend. I suppose the one change is that my husband agreed to couples therapy going forward.

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?

Absolutely do it, I have no regrets.

We had done couples therapy several times with varying degrees of success. We have communication and trust issues, particularly my partner’s willingness to commit.

Dr. Maryanna Ham is affable, very skilled and knows how to push into the deep water. Now, there’s more honesty about where we are, more risk-taking to say what we feel/need/want.

The dark cloud over our marriage seems to be clearing.

Before we contacted Couples Therapy Inc. our relationship was contentious and bordering on a separation.

We had tried couples therapy before but it was somewhat unsuccessful, I don't think we ever found a good match of a therapist.

We chose Couples Therapy Inc. because of the online reviews and the ability to concentrate significant work into a short period of time.

Angela was extremely prepared and stuck to her program without idle chatter. There really isn't anything negative to say other then it's a long day. It was overall very intense but rewarding. We already seem to be communicating better, and surely have a deeper understanding of techniques to help us grow more together.

We have a better understanding of trust, openness, and honesty in our relationship. Our intimacy has returned. The dark cloud over our marriage seems to be clearing.

Angela knows her profession extremely well, and the intensive design of the program really gets to the core of whatever issues you may be experiencing in a timely, efficient manner.

We feel confident in our new tools and skills that Dr. Doug has taught us.

Dr. Doug Burford was very kind and easy to talk with. He was great at promoting spiritual involvement without feeling preached to. He was absolutely great. We feel confident in our new tools and skills that Dr. Doug has taught us. And we feel stronger that we can face future challenges together as a team. We feel we are now capable of continuing healing and communicating without hurting each other. We don’t fear a potential conflict. We know each other on a deeper level that we never knew existed and now we can pursue getting stronger.

We had an amazing experience with Couples Therapy Inc. The whole process has helped us so much.

Angela was excellent and very good at listening and understanding.

Our relationship was a disaster, lack of communication and trust. Our previous therapy was completely unsuccessful. Angela was excellent and very good at listening and understanding. We have more understanding of; our behavior, that we are both at fault, and how to communicate with each other.
