If you live some distance from the Couples Clinic or want to jump start your relationship in a short period of time, we offer accelerated counseling experiences in which you can get your relationship back on track in three days. Based on new discoveries in neurobiology and the science of intimate relationships, our approach will help you and your partner each more fully develop a core set of emotional habits that have been proven to lead to satisfying relationships over 90% of the time.

Throughout the process you can expect that your therapist will..
  • understand and care about the things that are most important to you.
  • expertly guide you (and/or your partner) through the stages needed for healing and change to occur.
  • provide clear leadership and direction during therapy sessions and give step-by-step guidance about how to do things differently.
  • operate on the basis of established scientific evidence about relationships, rather than personal opinion.
  • challenge you and/or your partner when needed in a direct, yet non-threatening, supportive way.

Intensive therapy experiences are tailored to the unique needs of each couple. However, the therapy often progresses according to the following general plan:

Day One

  • Therapist gathers information and cultivates understandings and attitudes needed for successful day two conversations

  • In the evening, you listen to audio recordings designed to prepare you for a successful second day

Day Two

  • Therapist facilitates healing conversations about past hurts

  • Therapist helps you break out of gridlocks over ongoing differences

  • You each receive personalized workbooks to prepare for the third day

Day Three

  • Attention turns to improvements needed in each of your day-to-day habits

  • Cultivating attitudes and interactions that make you and your partner feel loved

  • You leave with personalized recordings so each of you can sustain changes
