Have you & your partner discussed divorce or are you currently going through a divorce?  Are you and your partner currently separated or thinking about separation?

If you answered yes, then 
Advanced Couples Therapy is for you.  
  
                  Let me help you get your relationship back on track FAST with 
                                             Advanced Couples Therapy.

Advanced couples therapy is ideal for busy professionals, couples who are thinking about divorce or are currently separated.  It is also for couples who want a fast-paced approach to working on their relationship and trying to keep their marriage together. Your initial evaluation and sessions are in a 4 hour block of time on a Saturday (or another day of the week we agree upon).  This type of couples therapy focuses on understanding and beginning to resolve issues from the past, improving communication, and strengthening your emotional connection.  I help you understand the tools needed to begin to reconnect with each other and discuss the research-based skills needed to improve your communication, strengthen your friendship, and manage your differences calmly.  These sessions expedite the process of understanding and learning the skills needed to communicate and reconnect with each other.  You will move more quickly and effectively through the phases of couples therapy.  It would take 6-8 weeks of weekly couples sessions and individual sessions to reach this level of therapy after only hours on 1 day.  Research supports that longer sessions in the beginning of couples therapy can be more effective than the traditional weekly counseling sessions.
 

 Phases of the weekend couples therapy are:

 

  •  Initial Couples Evaluation session: (1 couples session - 1 hr)  In this session we will discuss your relationship history, the problems and strengths in the relationship. Prior to this session, you will each be sent a link to an online questionnaire to fill out and send back to me at least 3 days prior to the session.  (Total of 1 hour)
 
  • Individual Sessions: (2 sessions total, 1 hour each)  You will each have 1 individual session with me so that I can better understand your perspective of the relationship and the issues within the relationship. Additionally we will discuss your experiences within your family growing up as these influence your current relationship dynamic.  (Total of 2 hours)

 

  • Final Couples Feedback Session: (1 couples session - 1 hr)  During this session I will discuss the findings of your "Relationship Profile."  These findings are compliled and analyzed based on your answers from your relationship and individual questionnaires.  My assessment of your relationship strengths and weaknesses will be discussed, along with treatment recommendations and how we will proceed with therapy.   (Total of 1 hour)

 

**During the 4 hours, we will take a few small breaks in-between sessions. 


   As your relationship improves, the goal is to eventually fade out therapy.  Research provides evidence that those couples who do not maintain and build on their progress made, but drop out before their therapy has been completed has a significantly high relapse rate. Therefore completing therapy and following up with "maintenance" sessions are a very important part of therapy so as to minimize the likelihood of relapse.  

   
Following your final couples feedback session and based on your "Relationship Profile" we would then meet once a week for 2-3 weeks.  At your 3rd couples session, I will evaluate the progress that has or has not been made, and the work that still may need to be done.  From there I will recommend session frequency.  (At this point, most likely we will not continue with weekly sessions, but may go to every other week or even once a month.  This again, completely depends on the assessment of the progress made and each couple varies.)   It is important to maintain and build upon the progress you have both made in therapy.   Thus when your therapy is completed, I do recommend that you have a couples therapy"maintenance" session 6 months after our last therapy session and another couples therapy "maintenance" session 6 months after that session.  (So you have at least 2 couples therapy maintenance sessions in 1 year) 
After that you are just encouraged to call me if you need me.  
 
Find that happiness again quickly with Advanced Couples Therapy.
