Marriage Intensive ($250/hr)

If you are experiencing a serious medical condition and need major surgery, would your doctor do the surgery “an hour-a-week” for 4 – 20 weeks until it was done? Of course not – and that’s why The Excellent Marriage’s one-of-a-kind Intensive Marriage Counseling options are so effective. Even more, it allows couples needing urgent care or couples in crisis to heal their relationship over a Half Day, 1 Day or 2 ½ Day Intensive.

Therapeutic Process

Unlike many Intensive Marriage Counseling programs, Therapist Deona Frierson works with one couple at a time.  Typically, the couple would participate in a number of double private marriage counseling sessions (240 minutes). It could be one double session or two per day. Also note that Educational tools are part of the therapeutic process.  Most of all, my goal is to equip you with new insight and tools that will give you hope and healing for the future of your marriage. The cost is $350 per hour. Intensives can take place during the week (Monday through Friday), or a pre-scheduled weekend.
