More about the Intensive

This private and personalized type of counseling is for couples who want to make a change and make it quickly. Those who come for an intensive are feeling a significant amount of distress – like this is their only hope to save their marriage. They want to save their marriage but feel they are on the edge of divorce or separation if things don’t change.

During an intensive, you and your partner will experience personalized private intensive therapy that will help you jump start your marriage and rekindle the emotional connection in just a few days.

Normally, to reach the progress you want and need for your marriage, it would take months of therapy. But, with an intensive, you can accomplish your goals over a week or even in a weekend.

When you schedule an intensive, you are reserving your therapist’s time completely for the days/hours that are agreed upon. You will be the focus, and the time is exclusively yours. You are the VIP clients over those few days with your therapist and if more time is needed, it can be adjusted as you progress. You get to decide and won’t have to worry about watching the clock.

Your therapist is there to help you save your marriage. Not only will you stop thinking about divorce or separation, but you can begin moving in the direction of having a thriving and loving marriage once again.  There is Hope!

You may still have questions like,  This is very expensivehow we can afford this?”

Doing an Intensive is less expensive than going through a divorce or separation. The cost of attorneys, moving, court fees, child support, and alimony will cost much more than an intensive week of therapy. Not to mention the emotional strain and stress it will put on you and the entire family.

The real question is, “How can we NOT afford this?”

This could save your marriage and your family! Isn’t that worth the price?

Preparing for the Intensive:

Intensives can be scheduled during the week or on the weekend.

In order to prepare for the intensive, Jessica recommends that you both read, “Hold Me Tight,” by Dr. Sue Johnson. This will give you a better understanding of the work we will be doing together during your intensive and give you a head start.

It is important to take this time and create a retreat – like a getaway – for you and your partner. It really helps to be away from work, family, and the stress of everyday life. Jessica is happy to help you book a nice hotel near her office, even on the beach if you would like to be near the water. Her office is only a short 15-minute drive from the beach.

Your marriage deserves to have this quiet time together so you can relax, process what happens in therapy, and enjoy doing some fun activities together in the evenings and afternoons after your therapy sessions.

You may feel like you won’t be able to enjoy time with your partner because of the distress your marriage is in – but you would be surprised. When couples getaway to really focus on their relationship, and talk things out, the distress goes down and allows couples to relax and enjoy time together.

Don’t wait any longer. You and your marriage deserve to have the love and relationship you once had, and the time is now!
