I have found that the couples intensive is the best way to begin couples therapy and progress is amplified from starting off in this way. It is also helpful so that you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedules during the work week. Some people who are seeing another therapist choose to do the intensive and go back to their other therapist. I am happy to communicate with them in these situations. If you want to keep working with me I usually recommend 90 minute follow up sessions every 2-3 weeks or so.
For the most part I offer this option on Saturdays. Couples arrive at 8:30am and we meet together for a 90 minute session. I then meet with each of you individually for around 45 minutes and then we come back together for the last 45 minutes. We will finish around 12:30. Email me to find out what Saturdays are available. Other days and times might be available as well.
The price for this is $650.
The intensive takes place at my office in Dover, NH.
