Intensive Couples Therapy

Welcome to The Marriage Healing Center, where we help couples improve their communication skills and build a stronger relationship. Our experienced therapists offer counseling programs designed to help couples change old destructive patterns of interaction and learn new communication strategies for successful expression of each partner’s thoughts, feelings, and requests for joint cooperation.

Our Services:

Our Intensive Couples Therapy services are available for couples who are interested in addressing their issues beyond the typical one hour weekly sessions. Our customized four to six-hour sessions are designed to assist couples who want an in-depth counseling experience for immediate relationship transformation. In addition, intensive sessions are great for couples who are not available to come in on a weekly basis and couples who are experiencing a crisis such as an infidelity. These extended sessions will help couples get back on track in a hurry with clearly defined guidelines for creating new relationship patterns of intimacy and emotional safety. In addition, intensive sessions are convenient for spouses who travel frequently.

Our Approach:

We believe that intensive sessions provide the couple with uninterrupted time for them to address their conflict in a safe environment. This approach is especially helpful for couples who are at the brink of divorce and need longer sessions to work through their issues quickly. Our therapists use evidence-based practices and a strengths-based approach to help couples identify and overcome communication challenges. We provide couples with the tools they need to build stronger communication skills and deepen their connection with each other.




Our Services Include:

  1. Assessment – Our intensive services start with an assessment of each couple’s conflict, challenges, and strengths. This assessment helps our therapists tailor the program to the unique needs of each couple.
  2. Education – Our intensive services include education on conflict management, effective communication skills, including active listening, effective expression, and conflict resolution. The Gottman Method and Imago Therapy techniques are taught and utilized in the sessions.
  3. Practice – Our counseling includes practice techniques designed to help couples develop and refine their communication skills, address conflict, and rebuild trust.
  4. Feedback – Our therapists provide feedback and guidance to couples throughout the intensive counseling sessions, helping them identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.
