What they say about our Midwest Couples Retreats

Our clinician are not only licensed professionals but certified or have advanced training in the prestigious Gottman Method. It's an evidence-based method proven effective over 40+ years. It's one-to-one therapy, only more intensive. These science-based intensive marriage counseling are secular, non-religious, but if you prefer, you can choose to work with one of the two ministers on our Team of 24 located across the USA.

Our relationship was troubled. We had begun couples therapy weekly regimens prior to attending Couples Therapy Inc. It didn't feel that we did much or progressed much in our weekly sessions. Also, the therapist seemed to have to be reminded of our problems because she didn’t seem to remember anything about us each week. Dr. Doug Burford, was very kind and easy to talk with. He was great at promoting spiritual involvement without feeling preached to. And he listened to what we have done and adjusted anything he needed to meet our needs.He was absolutely great. We feel confident in our new tools and skills that Dr. Doug has taught us. He finds ways of conveying information and skills in a way that sticks and always you to reinforce and build on them. We have improved our conflict communication and resolutions. We can express our feelings in a productive manner without using bad phrases or words. And we feel stronger that we can face future challenges together as a team. We feel we are now capable of continuing healing and communicating without hurting each other. We have new tools and don’t fear a potential conflict. We had an amazing experience with Couples Therapy Inc. The whole process has helped us so much. My husband and I feel like we have a renewed relationship. We know each other on a deeper level that we never knew existed and now we can pursue getting stronger.

Couples Retreat Couple Retreat in Ohio

Our relationship was very strained and volatile at times. We wanted to improve knowledge of what happened to cause my husbands infidelity, we needed to reevaluate communication skills and we needed to feel like we could find a place of acceptance. We have been dealing with this since June 2016 and were still not making progress after two therapists and lots of reading.

This almost felt like our last hope and we both needed to see even a glimmer of a chance.

We have tried therapy with two other Licensed Social Workers that had some insight but were not able to really see the bigger picture, the whole picture, like Mike did. Mike was able to help us discover issues that led to my husband's decisions and his change in character. He also helped me to see why my reactions to everything was a reflection of my past as well.

My husband is starting to see the full effects of his discovery of work addiction and what it entailed for him personally. We both appreciated his approach to hearing our story, of respecting our feelings, of helping us to understand our lack of communication style, of evaluating our family histories and how relevant it was to our adulthood and explaining ways It had affected our marriage. He was extremely thoughtful in his evaluations and comments—reintroducing concepts that we needed to keep in mind and he kept us on track, which we really have had issues with. His use of doubling our conversations was so helpful, especially for my husband who admits that he has problems with saying things the way he wants. We would both benefit tremendously with being able to continue therapy with him.

Would you recommend your couples therapist and Couples Therapy Inc?

Yes! Yes! Mike was so knowledgeable about more than just the marriage. He saw the whole picture—the picture that helped us to see the “why” that caused so many of our issues.

I am feeling positive about the future.

It is life changing!

The dark cloud over our marriage seems to be clearing.

I am really so relieved that we don't have to give up.

I can't express how impressed my wife and I are with our therapist.
