Couples Intensives

Couples Intensives

We offer Couples Intensives for those addressing issues like betrayal trauma, communication issues, and difficulties co-parenting shared children. Rather than weekly couples therapy, we offer two separate processing sessions, each lasting 3 hours. We help you identify your pain cycle, communication breakdowns, and trauma responses within your relationship. We then teach you self-soothing and nervous system regulation skills that you can use outside of therapy spaces.

This can be helpful for: 

Betrayal Trauma

Have you experienced trauma or betrayal within your relationship? Are you struggling to recover and repair after a significant hurt with your partner? Couples Intensives focus on helping you process your trauma, connect with your partner, and find better ways to communicate. Intensives are extended periods of time (3-4 hours of processing with your therapist) to lower your distress faster.

 

Pre-Martial Counseling

Are you engaged to be married and want help discussing the hard parts of all relationships? Couples Intensives help you talk about money, religion, in-law relationships, and conflict resolution. You are given a SYMBIS Pre-Martial Evaluation and your therapist walks you through the Intensive session. Sessions are extended periods of time (3-4 hours each).

 

Parenting

Are you struggling to co-parent with your partner because you see child-rearing differently? Couples Intensives help you get on the same page as your partner, negotiate differences in perspective and create connection in your relationship. Sessions are extended periods of time (3-4 hours each) and include parenting coaching along with couples counseling.

Is an Intensive right for you?

Psychotherapy Intensives don’t change everything. They provide an opportunity for a time-out to dig deep in an environment without distractions that the standard one-hour weekly time slots fail to provide. This is not a quick fix; it requires dedicated intense focused work with highly motivated individuals and couples who are ready to commit to change, regardless of the discomfort and consequences.

 

Intensives are not for everyone. In order to participate you must be willing, motivated, and available to do the work. A telephone screening with each individual is required in order to determine eligibility to participate. 

How much does a Couples Intensive Cost?

Two-Day Couples Intensive costs $1500 and a 50% deposit is due at the time of booking and is non- refundable. It is transferable if the Intensive is rescheduled, provided notice is given at least 48 hours before your initially scheduled start day and time. Because of the time commitment, your therapist is making to you, exceptions will only be made for true emergencies, at the discretion of your therapist. Intensive therapy is a financial investment in you and your future. Rather than being on the weekly payment plan of traditional therapy treatment, you will be investing a larger amount of money upfront (that in the long run will likely still be less money than ongoing weekly therapy). Many people have to plan ahead and save before they can schedule an Intensive. Once the Intensive is scheduled though, you will have a fixed cost to work with rather than the unknown costs of ongoing weekly therapy.

Can I use my insurance for Intensives?

Insurance does not cover the cost of Intensives. Intensives do not have billing codes through insurance providers, so clients cannot submit claims for reimbursement.
