Intensive Couple Therapy with Lori Case Marchak

Intensive Couple Therapy is private, confidential and highly personalized for your marriage or committed relationship as it exists at this point in time.

If you are experiencing mild to moderate distress, the goal of the week is to transform negative patterns that undermine your personal and relationship potential into positive patterns that bring you closeness, healing and happiness.

If you are in extreme distress or in crisis, possibly considering separation or divorce, the goal is to transform your relationship from what it is now, to a place of confidence in yourself and your future, whether it is the beginning of healing and the know-how to build the kind of relationship you both deserve, or to move on separately with mutual respect, support and understanding.

How our program works:

DSC_LoribwYou’ll meet with Lori Case Marchak, MS, PhD, LCPC, an experienced and gifted therapist, for a total of 14-15 hours over 3 days. Days and times may be flexible. Lori will work with you to develop an understanding of where you are now, guide you through layers of misunderstanding to see yourselves and your relationship with surprising new clarity, and help you relate to each other with new confidence and compassion. Lori’s approach is based in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), the gold standard for transforming couple relationships. Lori is an ICEEFT Certified Therapist and Supervisor.

It’s best to structure the entire week around your relationship, putting aside work and other responsibilities. It’s ideal if you create a “retreat” with your partner by arranging child care if need be, stay in a space that takes you away from daily responsibilities, and plan low-key, healthy, and enjoyable activities for your afternoons and evenings. You’ll get the most from this experience by creating time and space to relax and rejuvenate the rest of your day.



Days and times are flexible and vary.

Intensives are typically scheduled Monday through Wednesday or Thursday through Saturday. A typical schedule looks like this:

  • Day 1 (4 hours): Introductions and overview; Hour-long individual sessions; First couple session.
