Couples Therapy Retreats and Intensive Marriage Counseling in California

Your marriage is in crisis.

You wonder if it’s “too late” to get help.

Maybe, there’s been an affair or one partner is considering leaving the relationship.

Or, a tragedy or loss occurred in your family or close circle, which has shaken you both to your core.

Now, everything seems uncertain and you’re not sure where to go from here. Perhaps, you’re even considering divorce.

You don’t even have to be married to have these issues in your relationship. Perhaps, you’re in a committed relationship and don’t want to wait years or months for your relationship to change. You and your partner are experiencing significant distress or high conflict. Communication is challenging. It feels like you’re “stuck” and unable to solve the problems you’re having with your partner. Feeling hopeless and discouraged is normal in this situation. Maybe, your partner seems cold and distant. This leaves you feeling lost and alone. There is hope for you and your partner to problem solve together, in a way that will help you both feel great about your future.

Relationship problems are common for every couple. How they are handled makes all the difference in a successful relationship.

Traditional weekly couples counseling can be very effective and beneficial in solving these problems. But, progress can be slow and frustrating, especially for those who are unable to attend each week. Many couples feel overwhelmed by the repetitive and escalating nature of the problems. Some married couples have tried weekly therapy without seeing any positive results and are ready to try something different.

You are willing to give your marriage one last shot, but you don’t have the time or patience to do weekly therapy for months before seeing improvement in your relationship.

A Couples Therapy Retreat Can Help You Improve Your Relationship

A couples retreat is designed to give you and your partner useful tools that you can use in your day-to-day life. During an intensive couples retreat you spend extended time together with a Gottman trained therapist to find rapid relief in your relationship. In fact, a weekend couples retreat is the equivalent to 6 months of 50-minute couples therapy sessions.
