Marriage Intensives are designed for couples who want results now...

THE MARRIAGE INTENSIVE EXPERIENCE

One of the most effective ways to heal and restore a couple’s marriage is via Marriage Intensives. Most couples looking into a Marriage Intensive are hurting, discouraged, and have lost hope. Our Marriage Intensives are designed for couples in relationship crisis who need to rebuild trust and restore love and intimacy with each other.

We offer a safe, non-judgmental, and nurturing environment to begin the work of unearthing the root causes of your marital issues. We evaluate the details to develop a comprehensive customized treatment plan for each couple as individuals and as a pair. Couples will learn how to deepen their connection, increase communication through empathy and listening, and understand and value their differences.

They also learn how to resolve conflicts, restore trust, change patterns, reduce blame, and move through issues that would usually be a roadblock. By the end of the intensive, couples are equipped to return home with valuable insight, transformational tools, and researched proven techniques and principles to apply in their daily lives.

Marriage Intensives are ideal for busy couples who need to get to the root of the matter quickly rather than take several months working at issues at the pace of one hour a week as with typical counseling. Marriage Intensives allow couples to escape the distractions of work, children, computers, cell phones, etc., so that spouses can give their undivided attention to each other and to healing their marriage. This time is also beneficial for couples who may be on the verge of separation or divorce or in severe pain. Often couples want to give the marriage one last try before making any decisions.

OUR APPROACH TO RELATIONSHIP DISTRESS

Relationships can be challenging and even painful at times. Relationships suffer when there’s too much conflict, fighting, and resentment – and sometimes the walls go up with emotional and physical distance. The powerful feelings we experience in distressed relationships are universal. We may react with blame, anger and shutting down. Then our spouse or partner reacts to the anger and distance, and this creates a relationship “dance”. A dance that is all too familiar. The specific problem areas that we address in our intensives include:

  • Conflict, power struggles, and angry escalations
  • Patterns of complaining, blaming, and defensive reactions
  • Shutting down, distancing, and lack of communication
  • Emotional and physical disconnection – the “emotional divorce”
  • Intimacy and sexual problems
  • Infidelity and affairs (including problems like “sexual addiction”)
  • Trust issues, insecurities, feelings of betrayal

3-DAY PRIVATE MARRIAGE INTENSIVE

We spend three days together. Those three days are equivalent to 8 months of counseling. We will spend about 10-12 hours a day together engaged in couples sessions, individual sessions and experiential learning. It’s not for the faint of hearts. It’s very comprehensive deep dive intensive work that is designed to produce transformation. We take a three-prong approach to the weekend:

Your Marital Recovery​

When an affair occurs it shines a light on the struggles, marital patterns, and challenges within the relationship. We walk you through a comprehensive process that clearly identifies the root issues that are negatively impacting the marriage. We then provide you with tools and teach you specific skills that will enhance your relationship.

Your Individual Recovery

In every relationship, there is a betrayed partner and an unfaithful partner and both are hurting in two very different ways and for two very different reasons. Therefore, working with each of you both individually and collectively will allow you and your spouse to make a quantum leap forward in your marriage. The betrayed partner will learn how to heal, regain confidence and self-esteem, genuinely forgive, re-establish trust, overcome triggers and open up one’s heart to their spouse again. The unfaithful partner will discover the true ‘why’ of the affair, how to help heal and restore the marriage, move beyond guilt and shame, and embrace a new relational code of ethics.

Your Affair Recovery:​

Unfortunately, most counselors and therapists aren’t skilled or experienced walking couples through crisis like this. However, we have 6 stages we take you through that goes from Discover to Recovery.
