  • If you want to be closer to your partner,
  • If you are starting a new relationship,
  • If you are healing a conflict in your marriage.

Next workshop:  TBA

Intensives Intensives are private psychotherapy sessions for couples who are traveling from out of town and cannot make it to weekly sessions, or want a more in-depth experience. Like a couples workshop, we explore intensive ways to increase the connection and intimacy in your relationship, resolve conflict, and work through shame, guilt and anger in your partnership. Working privately with a therapist for four to six hours, couples get the same benefit from the day of therapy that they would from a whole weekend of a couple workshop, sometimes creating dramatic and long lasting shifts in their relationship. Special issues and conflicts can be focused on in an Intensive such as:

  • Affair Recovery
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • ReSexualizing relationships
  • Grief Work
  • Pre-Marital Vision Quest
  • Second Marriage Preparation
  • Step Parent Coaching
