Intensive Therapy Week

Intensive Couple’s Week

Are you and your partner:

  • Recovering from infidelity?

  • Desperate for some kind of change in your relationship?

  • In a crisis?

  • Endlessly arguing or perhaps can’t share deeply at all?

  • Considering separation/divorce?

  • Wanting change to come sooner than later?

If so, Intensive Couple’s Therapy Week is for you.

Spending personalized private time together in intensive therapy will help jump start your marriage and take it to new levels of emotional connectivity. Often what takes months of couples therapy is done within a few days.  Couples find new hope, understanding, and the feelings of togetherness they have been so desperately missing.

This private and personalized couple’s counseling is for couples who feel significantly distressed in their relationship. Not infrequently, couples who attend an intensive are considering separation and/or divorce.

How it works:

You will meet with the therapist over 4 days. Here is the basic schedule:

Day 1 – 3.5 hours (1/2 hour initial couple meeting and overview; 1/2 hour focused on each partner for initial assessment, then a 2 hour couple session.)

Day 2 – 3 hours total: 1.5 in the a.m. and 1.5 hours in the p.m.

Day 3 – 2 hours

Day 4 – Depending on where we are in the process, a 2 or 2.5 hour session.

Day 5 – Optional 2.5 hours

Equal to 12-14 sessions of weekly therapy

Becca is available for follow-up, though having someone in your local community is most helpful. She is on-call as needed during the intensive week.

Before we get started:

Intensives work best when you create a “retreat” experience during the intensive therapy week. Get a hotel, take time off work, really get away with each other.

Read or listen to “Hold Me Tight” or “Love Sense” by Susan Johnson

Set up follow-up therapy before the intensive week, so you’ll have support to maintain the progress you make

Complete the intake questionnaires individually

Scheduling and Location:

Intensive weeks are done in sunny Baja California (Rosarito Beach or Playas de Tijuana).  It is best if each partner is freed up from work demands and able to focus this week on your relationship. To schedule this intensive work, please email

Cost:  $3,500

You might ask, “Is it worth it?”

As you consider how valuable this experience could be for your relationship think about what you’re trying to save –your marriage, your family, and money.  If your relationship got worse you could be paying far more for divorce attorneys, cost of moving, therapy, child support, and more. Your marriage deserves the best possible help and Dr. Jorgensen can give that to you.
