Couple intensive sessions are for the busy couple who truly want to work on strengthening their relationship but cannot seem to find the time for their schedules to come together and make it work. This program is an important investment in the relationship and may be thought of as urgent care for the marriage or committed relationship. The treatment itself is similar to a regular couples therapy program, however rather than meeting 4-5 times in one month the sessions are all in one-two days. This type of treatment is especially beneficial for the couple who is in crisis i.e. infidelity was recently revealed, one or both partners is considering separation, divorce, etc.
Benefits of Intensive Couples Therapy vs. Traditional Couples Therapy?
-Scheduling: Many couples find it easier to schedule a 4-5 hour block of time on a Saturday rather than 4-5 separate sessions during the work week.
-Availability: While couples therapists currently have wait lists for new clients, there is currently no wait list for an intensive program.
-Intense Focus: A common complaint of traditional 50 min sessions is that some couples find they are just nearly 'getting comfortable' in the session when the time is up. Many want longer sessions to focus on important issues.
Contact Firefly Counseling Services, P.C. 503-560-5822 and request intensive couples counseling as a program option. Our support staff will ask for your demographic information and connect you with the therapist facilitating the work, Sara Pitkanen, M.Ed. LMFT.
