Helping Couples Quickly Through Private Couples Therapy Intensives

In Traditional Weekly Couples Therapy:

You have a good session…

Then, life happens

Your next session, you address what happened last week

Then, life happens again…

In your next session, you address last week’s conflict

See the pattern?

You are doing a lot of work, but not getting better quickly.

You Need to Learn HOW to Communicate BETWEEN Therapy Sessions

No matter how great a therapy session is, most couples will go home and continue to hurt one another in between weekly sessions. This creates more scars and makes forward momentum difficult.

Couples need to learn what to do in between the sessions to make and keep progress.

Hello, I am Bri McCarroll, MSW, LICSW

Talking to a stranger about your relationship is one of the last things you want to do.

You know this may be your last chance, so you feel a pressure to get it right.

I know you need things to get better quickly, so I do things VERY DIFFERENTLY.

Intense Hurt Needs Intensive Help

I prioritize teaching you practical tools so you start communicating immediately and I work with you intensively.

Working from 4 hours to 4 days, you learn the communication tools that would normally take 6 to 8 months of therapy.

Private Couples Therapy Intensives

  • Hear and understand your partner again.
  • Communicate differently to prevent conflicts.
  • Address past issues that just won’t go away.
  • Connect on a level that feels ‘safe’ and that your partner ‘has your back’.

Watch this video to learn how I ‘do things differently’.
