Couples Intensive  

This specialized couples therapy program is designed for one couple to work exclusively with an Onsite therapist for four days. 

The Couple Intensive is created to meet the specific needs of the couple based on telephone interviews and information obtained from their application. Within the context of this program, couples will have the opportunity to look deep within their relationship to explore, identify, and move beyond underlying patterns of conflict, unresolved problems, as well as walls of fear and defensiveness.
