“My program’s differentness makes the difference.”
Here’s what my couples counseling retreat in Colorado offers that most or many of the other programs for couples do not:
Complete privacy and personalization.
With most other programs, you’d be mixed in with other couples and get a cookie-cutter approach: one size fits all. On your weekend intensive with me you’ll get complete privacy. In addition, you’ll get personalization: I’ll tailor what I do so that you’ll get exactly what you need.
An approach that has been scientifically proven to be highly effective.
Many of the other programs use approaches they like, but not approaches that have been proven to work. On your intensive marriage retreat with me I’ll primarily use EFT, or Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, an approach that has been demonstrated to be highly effective by more than 30 years of research. With EFT, nearly 75% of couples recover and another 15% improve significantly.
The benefits of 40 years of experience and a high level of professional training.
Most of the leaders of other programs for couples have only a few years of experience and a master’s degree. Some do not even have a master’s degree and are not even licensed therapists. On your intensive marriage retreat with me you’ll get the benefits of 40 years of experience, a doctorate in psychology, and licensure both as a psychologist and as a marriage and family therapist.
A format that is minimally disruptive to your life.
With many of the other programs, you’d be required to go and live at their location for a week. With me on your couples counseling retreat in Colorado you’ll get the same number of hours of couple therapy in three or four days that many of the other programs take five or six days to deliver.
A single highly-qualified therapist for your entire weekend.
Many other programs use a team approach involving two or more therapists. I believe that this can water down the treatment, especially if there is a lead therapist with several less-qualified assistants. On your marriage intensive retreat with me you’ll get one highly-qualified marriage and family therapist all the way through.
Specialized help for affair recovery.
Most other programs do not offer specialized help to couples needing to heal from the trauma of infidelity. If you’re reeling from an affair, then on your couples counseling retreat in Colorado with me you’ll get the benefits of my highly effective Affair Recovery Program, which I have developed over the past 40 years.
One of the most scenic locations in the nation.
My marriage intensive retreats take place in Louisville, Colorado, which affords breath-taking views of the majestic peaks of the continental divide, a short ways to the west. It’s the perfect place to calm your conflict or crisis and heal your pain.
High satisfaction ratings and strong endorsements.
Many leaders of marriage retreats do not ask their graduates for satisfaction ratings. I do and I’ve been tracking them for years. The results show that 95% of former participants say that their weekend with me was transformational and that they’ll recommend it to friends. In addition, psychologists from across the country who have sent couples to me have provided strong endorsements for my program.
As you can see, my intensive marriage retreats really are different from most or many of the other programs for couples. That’s what makes them so effective.
