The intensive format is perfect for those who want to go to a deep place in their marriage in a short amount of time.
WHICH COUPLES SHOULD CONSIDER THE INTENSIVE?
- If you are in a crisis, on the brink of divorce - but both partners want to try to make it work.
- If you are stuck in a negative interactive pattern and just can't seem to stop fighting.
- If you feel distant, almost like roommates and don't know how to be close again.
- If you just can't make weekly counseling work with demanding schedules and/or the childcare shuffle.
- If you are a therapist and need anonymity, so you're coming from out of town.
- If you would like to get away AND restore your marriage.
For the best results, I will help you find an EFT therapist for follow-up work after the intensive (or you can have check-in sessions with me).
For current clients, we can discuss expectations for the intensive during a session in my office. For out of town clients or local candidates, a phone call is required to make sure this is the best format for your marriage at this time (and for you to make sure I'm the best fit for you). No fee for the phone call.
THREE OPTIONS FOR MARRIAGE INTENSIVES:
Option A) Mini-Intensive - One day intensive at my office (we can choose a weekday that works for everyone's schedule) - 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., with a break in the middle of the day for lunch. COST = $1000
This option is a great jump-start for couples. It's also great for current clients that find it difficult to make weekly scheduling work. Depending on the state of your marriage, follow up work might be needed.
Option B) Three-Day Intensive - (best for out of town folks) - We'll schedule three consecutive days (these can be over a weekend or during the week) - 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. each day (the schedule can vary - but we'll stick with about 5 hours of counseling a day, with breaks). COST = $3,000
This option is for couples that want to try to get the bulk of their work done over the course of three consecutive days. Because the therapy room isn't "real life" - I advise you to have follow up therapy for being able to transfer the work we do together to your real life. You want to feel confident about applying your moves toward each other in the throes of your actual life! For those coming from out of town, I would love to help you find a place to stay (bed & breakfast or convenient hotel). Franklin is a charming southern town with great restaurants, shopping and live music.
Option C) Multiple One-Day Intensives - Over the course of a month or two, you can schedule three or four one-day intensives. Couples in the past have liked to spread them out over a couple of weeks. This option is best for locals and each intensive can be scheduled on a weekday. The format is the same (9-3:30 with a break in the middle for lunch). COST = (for 3 one-day intensives = $3,000 For 4 one-day intensives = $4,000).
You might ask yourself, "Is this cost effective?"
Frequency is one key to successful counseling. Couples with the best results go to counseling once a week. But a part of each weekly session is spent checking in, kind of like warming up. In the intensive environment, there is no time wasted. Every minute counts towards progress. In most cases, you will save money and, more importantly, get your marriage back on track quicker than with weekly sessions.
