Intensive Couples Therapy

If you are struggling from the effects of coronavirus and the “Safer at Home” mandate, we are here to help.  For some, it has been so hard to adjust to so many fast and significant changes.  Others are experiencing significant symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Some are struggling with social isolation, while others are experiencing significant relational struggles with their partners and other family members.  

If you are experiencing any of these, or other struggles, we are here to help.  We can help you navigate these significant changes and struggles.  For those who prefer and/or need support while maintaining social distancing, we can offer support through teletherapy (phone or video sessions).  Contact us to get connected with a therapist today.

At this time, we are offering this service at just our Pasadena location.

Intensive couples therapy can be extremely helpful for couples and is a great way to do significant therapeutic work in a short amount of time.  Intensive therapy is especially helpful for couples who are in facing: 

  • Separation/Divorce
  • Infidelity
  • Betrayal
  • Affairs
  • Relationship in Crisis
  • Dishonesty
  • Destructive Patterns
  • Lack of transparency
  • Urgent Matters that Need to Be Resolved Quickly
  • And More...

What to Expect

During an intensive, couples are often able to achieve the kind of growth that might occur during weeks or months of traditional weekly couples therapy. 

A couples therapy intensive involves meeting with a therapist for multiple 90 minutes sessions, typically over two days.  Most intensives take place during a weekend, although there are times that we can accomodate requests for weekday intensives.  Here is what a typical intensive schedule looks like*:

  • Saturday
    • 9-10:30am — 1st session
    • 10:30-10:45am — Break
    • 10:45am-12:15pm — 2nd session
    • 12:15-1:15pm — Lunch break
    • 1:15-2:45pm — 3rd session
  • Sunday
    • 9-10:30am — 4th session
    • 10:30-10:45am — Break
    • 10:45am-12:15pm — 5th session

*Alterations to an intensive can be made (number of sessions, number of days, etc.) depending on the specific needs of each couple.  Please contact us to discuss how we can adjust the intensive experience according to your needs.


The fees for a 5-session intensive range from $1150 to $2500, depending on the therapist providing the intensive treatment.  

An initial deposit of $500 is required to reserve and schedule an intensive.  The balance of the remaining fees will be paid during the first session of the intensive.

Cancellation policy for intensives. If you cancel a scheduled couples therapy intensive within 48 hours of your first scheduled meeting, no refund of your deposit will be given.
