Forty years of research studying real marriages teaches that marriages die by 'fire' or 'ice'. 'Fiery' marriages divorce early. 'Icy' ones live longer without passion, or excitement. Learn More.
Research has demonstrated that a science approach in couples counseling is 70-90% effective in helping relationships thrive. These private retreats equal almost 6 months of conventional therapy. Begin with a weekend. Follow up online or continue with your local therapist. In other words, we provide the "jump start" you need for focused, effective work. Ways to meet? You come to us. We meet online. Or we even come to you with our team of "Fly Me" therapists.
Were you a "marriage counseling drop-out?"
You aren't alone.
Were you squeezed into a 45-55 minute "individual block of time?"
That's too short a time to feel heard and to be clinically effective. In short, it's a waste of your time and money.
Most couples in high distress go to marriage counseling once before becoming disillusioned. Shouldn't you make that one shot count?
The average couple in distress waits over 6 years before seeking help. Don't be one of them.
Find someone highly qualified.
But, while 80% of practicing therapists claim to do some form of relationship therapy, few have adequate training in this tricky modality.
As a result, couples end up blaming their relationship and not the therapist!
Learn how you can do it better. Together. Learn more.

Remarkably, yes, it can. Couples report that it provides a foundation for real ongoing change.
First, this is not a group experience with fun games. It's a one-couple-one-therapist program in an intensive format. Secondly, it's proceeded by an extensive evaluation, so we learn a lot before you come.
Bring us your most distressing relationship problems.
Couples Therapy Inc. also includes work for happier couples, too, who come for a tune up. You'll learn how to change around marital unhappiness to team collaboration. "Hopeless" to "Hopeful."
All in a single science-based weekend.

Both Mike and Lisa are Master Gottman Trainer with the Gottman Institute, training other couples therapists in the method.
Some family therapy practices are a group of professionals who share an office and administrator.
We're a clinical team, hand-picked by Dr. K from across the globe. She's combed 1000's of resumes to find them.
In order to be chosen to become part of our elite group of couples counselors, you need the right skill-set in science-based couples therapy (including Gottman Method or Emotionally Focused Therapy...) a collaborative spirit, and a passion to grow the profession of couples counseling.
We grow our skills together!
In addition, offer both non-religious couples retreats and offer specialized Christian marriage counseling through our therapists who are ordained ministers and several lay Christian counselors. These are still science-based, but couples feel better knowing the therapist is biblically-informed.

"[Couples Therapy Inc.] is serious business - no margaritas, group sessions or yoga classes... a science-based intensive one-on-one retreat addressing your relationship issues head on with a skilled doctoral or masters-level couples therapist."
We make healing your heart convenient.
Your marital happiness depends upon choosing the best couples therapy available. But convenience is also important. Weekly 80-minute sessions aren't in-depth enough for many couples. Intensive, science-based help combines six months of therapy in less than 3 days. And at 70-90% scientifically proven effective, it's perfect for busy couples.
This is a positive psychology that goes beyond an individual therapy perspective. It's an impactful "systemic" approach. But our couples therapy work is not suitable for every couple, however. Can we help you? Give us a call to consult with a qualified psychologist, marriage and family therapist, mental health counselor, or social work professional to find out. And read more about our team's remarkable set of credentials and achievements, and our award-winning blog. Listen to what our clients have to say about our science-based work helping couples in an intensive format. Or simply call us and say: "Tell me more." Our Intake Coordinator Daniel is standing by. Arrange a consult.
And it's okay to mix business and pleasure, too. We make that easy, as well. Plan an exotic adventure like a safari in South Africa, surfing in Australia, or fly fishing in Montana. We can help you make that happen...and improve your love life in the bargain. One weekend. A lifetime of intimacy and team work.
Couples Counseling has come a long way. Aim high. Look for a day to day romantic relationship.
