Why a Couples Retreat vs. Weekly Couples Therapy?

A Couples Retreat is a weekend you set aside to enhance your intimate bond. It's an intensive, focused time for you both to reflect on what your relationship means to you. Take the time to contemplate what you want out of life. When you take a weekend away to renew your love, you slow down enough to consider who you aspire to be. Your best self. It allows both of you to make a deeper, abiding commitment to living your life fully and consciously.

Your life just got better.

We begin with an extensive individual and relationship assessment: The most complete assessment available today.

We call it "The BIG BIG Book of Intimate Relationships."

  • check
    Complete it online in the privacy of your home or office.
  • check
    Your Couples Therapist will study, score, and analyze your every word side-by-side.
  • check
    You are preparing to see us and we prepare to see you!

Spend a weekend to improve your intimate bond.

This makes your Couples Retreat Massachusetts an even more powerful experience. In completing the BIG BIG Book, you collaborate in enhancing your therapist's effectiveness. It not only includes a full Gottman Assessment, but additional important elements.

Dr. K, I spent most of my marriage not knowing it could be as rich as this last month as been. I felt the "switch," over this last month, and it's felt like living in sunshine instead of shadows. My husband and I haven't had a fight in months, even while navigating normally very tense waters including dealing with our families, and even buying a house! They've turned into discussions...

Our relationship was in real trouble. We were disconnected from each other and didn't know how to bridge the gap. Hesitations? My real fear was that it wouldn't work or my husband would be uncooperative.
