Couples Intensives are offered in person in Southern New Hampshire or virtually via Zoom

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the ‘gold standard’ for treating couples in distress. It is an evidence-based, tried-and-true technique, with over 35 years of research backing it up.

The Couples Intensive allows for a good amount of Stage 1 EFT work to be completed upfront, equivalent to more than 6 weekly sessions. Intensives have an immediate impact on lowering levels of distress and offer helpful strategies to continue to work on at home.

The intensives work best over a 6-hour day. You are welcome, however, to determine according to your availability, level of urgency, and financial situation, the amount of time you want.

All couple’s intensives are offered online as well as in person. This is work with one couple at a time. It is not a group format with other couples. I also offer those as monthly groups by the way! Interested? Find out more here

Back to the INTENSIVES…This couples intensive is for Any Couple, of Any Age, Any Relationship Status with Any Sexual Orientation.

The first 90-120 minute session is together where I invite you to share your perspectives on what is happening in your relationship.

We follow a break with two 90-minute individual sessions to gain clarity on the relationship cycle. One partner works with me whilst the other partner completes written exercises and views educational material.

By the end of the day, your negative relationship patterns will be clear, emotions identifiable and you will have learned a better way to express yourself and understand your loved one. You will leave with concrete strategies to practice at home.

The cost is $200 an hour. Payments can be made by credit card. A deposit of 50% is required to hold the date with the balance due the day before the meeting. You may negotiate reimbursement directly with your health insurance carrier.

Follow-up options may include weekly couples therapy for a limited period; monthly educational group meetings; recommended resources and individualized recommendations.
