Couple Therapy Intensive Weekend
“Our intensive weekend was structured, yet flexible; there were tears, and laughter; there were big realizations and little ones. In the intensive, Dr. Medaris knew when to pull back, when to push, when to assert, when to modify. Despite being at a distance (COVID interrupted our planned in-person intensive) Dr. Medaris made the space feel productive, immediate, and meaningful.”
Sometimes a one-hour-a-week therapy session doesn’t feel like enough, or it feels like your relationship needs an immediate injection of hope and repair. An intensive weekend is designed to be an in-depth, focused, guided exploration of the injuries in your relationship, and a structured approach to kickstarting the healing process. The amount of lasting transformation that often occurs after the immersive experience of an intensive weekend is surprising! This approach can achieve great progress far more quickly than “standard” couple therapy, and allows time to go much more deeply into the underlying issues of your relationship’s distress. A couple therapy intensive consists of two full days of in-depth, personal therapy provided by Dr. Andrea Medaris, as well as tools to take with you into the future.
“In the months since the intensive we built upon that framework of understanding newfound trust and flexibility. We began enjoying time with each other again. Depression subsided, and connection reestablished. We’re so grateful to Dr. Medaris for her skillful work and grateful to ourselves for investing the time, money, and emotion into that weekend. The right therapist really does make all the difference.”
The initial consultation is 90 minutes and costs $300, which can be applied to the cost of the weekend if we all feel it is a good fit and a good investment for your relationship.
