Experience weeks of therapy in just one day.
Is your relationship really struggling?
Your relationship is heading into scary waters.
You're worried about where the two of you are headed and you're beginning to feel hopeless.
Because of your fights and disconnection you're feeling:
distracted at work and at home.
hopeless about the future of your relationship.
that the infidelity, reproductive trauma, or other attachment injury has stolen your best friend.
You are in the right place. Intensives help my clients reconnect quickly so they can begin to feel supported and safe again.
It might not feel like it right now but you can save your relationship. You can feel like best friends again. I can help you get there.
Is 50 minute therapy not feeling like enough time to solve your disconnection?
Have you tried weekly sessions in the past and felt like there wasn't enough time to really get "into it"? Did it feel like you didn't have enough time to both be heard and understood?
Maybe you know that your relationship needs a fix now and you're worried about waiting.
Perhaps you've been on a waiting list, hoping your relationship can survive a few more weeks until an opening comes up, and you're fed up and want to begin to address your issues in one, concentrated day.
You're a busy professional without wiggle room in your schedule, planning one day to heal your relationship is easier than committing to months of weekly therapy.
An Emotionally Focused Couples Intensive can help you:
Understand your communication and relational dance that keeps you each stuck and alone. Begin to see that dance as the enemy rather than your partner.
Learn about why you perceive your partner's actions as you do, what your history and theirs has to do with your conflicts.
Rebuild clear and kind communication so you can talk about all the issues you've been avoiding or can't discuss without fighting or getting stuck.
Move towards understanding and forgiveness, allowing you both to feel seen and validated.
Discuss the goals you have for your relationship, openly, without feeling shut down or being shut down.
Find a new sense of openness and investment in your relationship.
Begin to feel a sense of closeness and emotional safety again.
Intensives provide momentum, there's not time spent catching up as in weekly therapy.
The feeling of an intensive is akin to going on a vacation - we'll create a "bubble" where your relationship will take center stage.
A one day investment for a lifetime of love.

5+ hours of therapy achieved in 1 day.
I require a $1125 non - refundable deposit when booking.
Will the intensive be online?
All intensives are online. No travel costs, no extra expenses. Make sure to have a quiet, secure location for your intensive. Turn off all notifications on the device you'll be using. You'll be meeting as a couple for 3 sessions and you'll need a laptop or desktop for those sessions. You'll each meet with me individually and phones can be used for this purpose.
What if we need to reschedule?
I do require a non - refundable $1125 deposit when booking.
I understand that sometimes life gets in the way of our best intentions.
Since the scheduling of an appointment involves setting aside time especially for you, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required for rescheduling or cancellation of your intensive. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, I will keep your deposit. If you can reschedule your intensive within 3 months your deposit will be applied to your rescheduled intensive.
What can we accomplish in a 1 day intensive?
Your intensive will start with a thorough assessment of what is happening in your relationships. This assessment will help us identify the relationship and communication dynamics that keep you stuck replaying the same fight over and over. If both of you are open and willing, I will lead you in ways to disrupt this cycle and foster new ways of relating. Individual sessions will focus on your relationship history, any trauma from your past, and hopes for you partnership. We meet back up after lunch for 2 intensive couples sessions. Here we will expand on and explore the underlying feelings behind behavior and triggers. I'll lead you both to turn towards your partner and share those underlying feelings, fostering new relationship patterns and healing old wounds. We'll end with a recap of what you've learned and referrals or a plan for future therapy.
How do we get started?
Contact me. We'll set up a time for a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if we connect and if a therapy intensive would be a good fit for you and your relationship. If you decide to schedule, I'll send you some paperwork to be completed on my HIPAA secure online portal. My portal will send you reminders texts/emails and a link to our online meeting space.
It's time your relationship felt whole again.
