Weekend Couples Therapy Retreats are best suited for couples who:

  • Have busy schedules and coordinating a weekly time would be difficult.

  • Live outside of the Oakland, CA area such as the Peninsula, South Bay, North Bay and areas beyond which makes traveling for weekly sessions quite challenging.

  • Couples who live anywhere in the USA, Canada or in the world.

  • Are committed and prepared to engage in intensive challenging and difficult emotional work over several days to repair, revitalize and rejuvenate their relationship or marriage.

Weekend Couples Therapy Retreats or Intensive Couples Counseling requires the commitment and concentration as if you are in one of the following scenarios:

  • Playing Centre Court in the Wimbledon finals.

  • Making your debut at the Metropolitan Opera.

  • Playing in the NBA finals.

  • Playing in the world series.

  • Playing in the Super Bowl.

  • Playing at the Masters.

If you live on the east coast of the USA or Canada,  Weekend Couples Therapy Retreats can occur in New York City/New York state.

House Calls for Weekend Couples Therapy Retreats or Extended Couples Therapy Sessions require the following expenses to be covered:

  • Travel

    • Travel time - San Francisco Bay area up to 2 hours away by car.

    • Locations outside of the San Francisco Bay Area - hotel - the ones with the best beds which rules out most Sheratons (from my experience.)

    • Air travel - preferred airlines - Delta, Alaska, American or the airline that has the most direct route to your location.

Couples who would not be a good fit for a Weekend Couples Therapy Retreat

  • One of you has:

    • a serious untreated mental health issue such as bi-polar disorder, suicidal, major depression

    • domestic violence,

    • active drug or alcohol addiction including weed/pot.

It may be prudent to address these individual issues prior to attempting relationship counseling.  Once the situation has stabilized I would be happy to consult with you to see if the timing is right for relationship counseling with me.
