We offer Kick Start Mini-Intensives and their follow-ups, for couples who wish to create change in their relationships beginning with a shorter one day intensive than our typical couples intensives, and to combine that with ongoing support after your all-day Kick-Start. We have found that these sessions combined with follow up, can be tremendously useful in starting meaningful transformation and change in many relationships that have been stuck for years.
A popular package for Kickstart Mini-intensives and follow ups is the following:
An All-day session--9AM to 4:30PM with a 1 hour lunch break and an afternoon break around 3.
Three 2 hour follow up sessions. (Usually done weekly, but can be spread out.)
Relationship Building Exercises to be done at home in-between sessions. These take about 30 minutes to complete. (You will typically be sent RBEs each week via email)
Links to a great deal of downloadable couples support materials and Unlimited Email Support during the time we work together.
Bonus: Four 15 minute "emergency" phone calls.
Mini-intensives can also be accomodated to fit, and be anywhere from 4 hours to 8 hours in length. They take place in our office in downtown Northampton, MA. We offering scheduling flexibility, and see couples on weekdays or weekends.
Insurance does not cover the cost of intensives.
Each couples mini-intensive is facilitated by one of the Couples Centers Co-Directors, either Katherine Waddell, LMFT or Donna Gilman, Psy.D. For current rates, please contact Dr. Gilman at 413-687-7691 or Katherine Waddell at 413-695-7193 directly .
