Couple Intensive

  • Are you and your partner at a crossroads and experiencing significant problems?
  • Do you need help now and don’t have time for multiple couple therapy sessions?

Couple Intensives

If so, Colorado Relationship Recovery offers a couple intensive.

A couple intensive is for couples in pain and their relationship needs to be fixed now. The purpose of an intensive is to get back on track relationally and to arm you with relational tools. They are designed to help you understand what you’re doing wrong, as well highlight what you’re doing right relationally.

During our intensive, I will teach you two how to fight fair. Conflict is inevitable in relationships and it’s important to be able to have conflict and be OK. You will practice both speaker and listener roles as well as begin to have appreciation for how communication is difficult on a good day – as it’s influenced by attachment, arousal, body language, mood, memory, and perception. What could possibly go wrong?

Each partner will do a personal attachment inventory (PAI) in the presence of each other. This is to help you understand how you and your partner are wired. Understanding attachment science helps you understand the context of your reflexes and vulnerabilities as well as your partner’s reflexes and vulnerabilities. Understanding these helps you take certain behaviors less personally, and more importantly, gives you a blueprint on how to apply the antidote.

Intensive Couple Therapy

Here is the schedule of the intensive couple therapy session:

  • 9:30 am – 12:30 pm Couple Session
    • In this session we will begin with basic background information, including overview of family of origin. Next is your couple narrative:
      • How did you two meet?
      • How long have you been together?
      • What were you drawn to?
    • Then we delve into the what’s up?
      • What are your struggles as a couple?
      • What are your goals as a couple?
    • This is the understanding phase of the session, and where I will begin to arm you two with relational tools to replace ways you two have eroded your relationship house. In the last hour of this session, you and your partner will complete the personal attachment inventory (PAI).
  • 12:30 pm – 1:45 pm Lunch Break
  • 1:45 pm – 2:30 pm Individual Session break for other partner.
  • 2:30 pm – 3:15 pm Individual Session break for partner who just had individual session.
  • 3:15 pm – 3:30 pm Break
  • 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm Couple Session
    • In this final session of the day, we will continue to practice the tools you have learned – ways to take care of your side of the relational home in the context of your goals as a couple – and continue to understand ways you can manage your partner and avoid each other’s vulnerabilities.

Total couple intensive investment: $1,000

Testimonial:

“My husband and I recently attended Jason’s Relationship Recovery Day. It was a great experience!  He really helped us make a deep reconnection that we felt was lacking. He is friendly, empathetic, knowledgeable, and was a joy to work with. Jason also has a good sense of humor which made the day even better. He’s a great listener and had us do some really cool exercises that strengthened our relationship. We will definitely continue to see jason from now on. He’s great at what he does!
If you are looking for a marriage therapist, or just wanting a tune-up, I highly recommend Jason. We have seen other therapists before and none of them are as skilled as he is. His exercises he had us do, and his ability to get to the heart of issues is amazing. We didn’t get lost in the weeds. I wish we would have found him years ago!  We are so grateful to have found him now and for the future.
Thanks Jason!  We are looking forward to more great experiences you have brought our relationship.”
