Marriage Tune-Ups

BikeCouple_450x300We often encounter couples who have gotten off track and need “intensive care” and they need it immediately and not a little at a time spread over the next 4-6 months.

For many distressed couples, a multi-day, concentrated marriage counseling “intensive” is often called for when couples are reaching a crisis point. These are usually the times when significant issues such as constant conflict, breakdown in communication, past hurts and wounds, financial pressures, parenting and intimacy issues or even infidelity have driven a wedge between husband and wife.

At Christian Counseling Associates Counseling Intensives are a specialty. Our proprietary Connected Marriage Home© program provides motivated couples with the detailed and customized care they need to get their marriages back on track and in a position of long-term relational health.

Our Intensives take on three forms:

  1. 2 1/2 Day Couples Intensive involves one couple working exclusively with seasoned therapists for 2 ½ days on a personalized fast-track where concentrated immediate attention is desired. Total cost is $3500.
  2.  A ONE-Day Marriage Tune-Up which involves one couple working with ONE OR TWO seasoned therapists for a full day (9:30 am-5:30pm) to repair and start to rebuild the relationship. Total cost is $1500.


Happy mature couple togetherWe also offer a one-day personalized Marriage Tune-Up for any couple. This involves one couple with two therapists for 8 hours. The purpose is to focus on specific areas of repair and growth utilizing our “10 Building Blocks of Connected Marriage.” Total cost $1500.

Cancellation Policy:  All fees excluding the $250 deposit will be refunded if cancellations are received and acknowledged by email at least 15 days before the intensive. For cancellations less than 15 days before the intensive all monies received may be applied to a future rescheduled date. The reason for this is that we have to clear our calendar of all other counseling appointments far in advance to schedule marriage intensives and group conferences.

Insurance Coverage:  All clients are encouraged to contact their insurance provider to clarify benefits. We do not file for insurance but we will provide a medical receipt that can be submitted for potential reimbursements. It may also be used as a medical deduction on income tax returns.

Confidentiality: All activity and conversations occurring during Connected Marriage© Intensive are kept strictly confidential.

Location of Connected Marriage Intensives:  All Connected Marriage© Intensives are confidential and conducted at our comfortable and relaxing main offices at 809 Spring Forest Rd. Suite 1000, Raleigh, NC, 27609 or at another local conference/seminar facility. If we are conducting a session off-site we will provide directions as well as detailed information about nearby lodging and dining options.

Meals:  Breaks and lunch hours are “on-your-own.” We gladly make recommendations to many nearby excellent restaurants.

Lodging:  All couples from outside the immediate Raleigh – Durham “Triangle” area are responsible for securing their own accommodations. Local residents might also wish to consider out-of-the-home lodgings during their event in order to focus full attention on the program and eliminate household distractions. There are many outstanding hotels within a few miles of our location.
