Two and Three Day Marriage Intensives
Traditional Marriage Therapy has about a 35% rate of success in restoring and healing marriages. Marriage Intensives, on the other hand, succeed with 85% of couples who complete the experience. While traditional counseling takes months, a Marriage Intensive over two to three days can clear obstacles and develop relational skills with immediate results.
A Marriage Intensive, as the name implies, pairs a trained pastoral counselor or relationship coach with one couple for two or three full days of exploration, education, and skills development. As a couple learns new tools for communication, intimacy building, and conflict resolution those skills are put into immediate use to build the lasting marriage both desire.
This Skills-based approach recognizes that there are basic emotional and relational needs common to all human beings. Relationships can be torn apart by past hurts and brokenness as well as by unmet emotional needs in the present. Using the best tools of psychological and behavioral research, our Marriage Intensive Pastoral Counselors help clients identify past hurts, unmet emotional needs, and self-defeating behavioral patterns which may be hindering personal growth and relational health. The goal of Skills Based Counseling is to assist couples in discovering new ways of thinking and behaving that will help them develop a healthy and satisfying marriage.
