Marriage Intensives

Essentially a Couples Intensive involves one couple, working with seasoned therapists exclusively for either a One-Day Intensive or a preferred  2 1/2 day period. This totals approximately 20 hours of client-specific therapy. The counseling services are customized to address the unique needs of the couple and to build a long-term plan for the health of the marriage.

Relationship difficultiesOngoing weekly or monthly marriage counseling sessions can be effective but sometimes a relationship is at a fragile tipping point and a couple needs more concentrated immediate attention.  A  2 ½ day marriage “intensive” can accomplish more than 4 months of ongoing weekly counseling and jump-start progress in repairing and restoring a relationship. When a couple chooses to take time off from regular activities and gives priority to working on issues that are contributing to distress and discouragement amazing, life-changing results are possible.

At Christian Counseling Associates of Raleigh, we utilize our proprietary Connected Marriage Home© counseling model. We deal with the past, present and future of each relationship and modify our curriculum to help each couple we serve break free from old baggage and destructive conflict. We help our clients forge healthy attachment patterns for the future.  Each marriage intensive is personalized using the model we have developed with 10 essential building blocks and corresponding skills and interventions for relational health, happiness and growth. Our approach to marriage counseling is a proven integrated model that combines Christian values, Emotionally-Focused Therapy and the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. We are pleased to report that this approach is extremely effective with an average 85% success rate with couples involved in our counseling.
