What to Expect During Your Marriage Intensive
During your marriage intensive, you will experience a safe environment where you can share openly about your feelings and needs, as well as your hopes and desires for your relationship. You can expect to be challenged—but in good ways that cause you to evaluate what you do and why.
You will have the opportunity of being able to see into your spouse’s heart and understand how to stop hurting them, and to love them in a way that builds connection, intimacy and trust. This intense time of healing and rebuilding will allow you to break old patterns of behaviors that are keeping you stuck, see things from a new perspective, and build something new and better.
An Intensive Approach to Counseling
Statistics indicate that once-a-week marriage counseling is ineffective, especially for high conflict couples whose marriages are in dire trouble. While it may offer short-term solutions to surface problems, it does very little to resolve deeply entrenched underlying issues resulting from past wounds. Our marriage intensives allow for the time needed to delve into your history, uncover the root issues and jumpstart the healing process.
Dr. Hawkins, Director and Founder of the Marriage Recovery Center, shares how a marriage intensive can be a great catalyst to launch your marriage in a new direction.
Get the Most Out of Your Marriage Counseling in Seattle
Marriage Recovery Center offers hope to couples through intensive marriage and couples counseling therapy in Seattle. Our relationship counseling offers a structured framework for couples experiencing issues of any scope in order to create harmony and to build a strong foundation for long-term success. We give you the tools needed to take practical steps to make your relationship goals, hopes, and dreams a reality.
Our results-driven approach to marriage therapy works for couples in any stage of their relationship. For those who are looking for Christian counseling in Seattle, our marriage counseling is based on a Christian framework. However, we work with people of all faiths and beliefs, and our primary mission is to help people heal and restore their marriages, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Pricing & Packages
Our intensive marriage counseling packages are designed for couples facing a crisis in their marriage. You and your spouse will receive counseling with a doctorate or masters level therapist or life coach, who will help you work through past wounds, healing dysfunctional patterns in your relationship, and learning new ways of connecting.
In working with high-conflict couples, we have found having two therapists involved in the marriage intensive to be extremely beneficial. While there are increased costs involved, the benefits are well worthwhile. Working with two therapists provides greater opportunities for intervention, change and growth, as well as the opportunity to have ‘breakout’ sessions for individual work to complement the couples’ work. We encourage you to explore this possibility with your therapist. Our Client Care Team is also happy to help you with these decisions.

You Are Not Alone
Did you know that approximately 41% of men and women admit to having a physical or emotional affair during marriage? While this can seem discouraging, it also means that there is vast information and experience on overcoming what has occurred, which we use to inform our intensive marriage counseling sessions. You can also take comfort knowing that you are not the only couple experiencing a crisis and that healing is possible. We don’t want you to give in to the fear and doubt—you can experience restoration and healing.
“After years of being controlled by my spouse and feeling alone and helpless, I found a truly understanding friend in Dr. Hawkins. He was patient and peaceful and yet able to say the hard things we needed to hear. I feel stronger and in better control after our intensive.”Denise, Littleton CO
“This experience was exactly what I’ve been praying for. It exposed us, causing us to listen to each other in ways we never had, and also equipped us with tools and a path forward to change our course. I’ve prayed for any multitude of things to “rock us” so that things could change. Initially, I worried about the cost, but despite our current financial situation, I can honestly say this was the best money we’ve ever spent and an expense that I felt was so necessary and worth every penny.”Melissa, Georgetown SC
“Many people have challenges—bad habits and thinking are hard to change—but Dr. Hawkins is on a mission to help! There is hope and another way to marriage recovery other than the mainstream recommendation of divorce.”Edward, Dallas TX
“Dr. Hawkins and his team are lifesavers. My husband and I started our 3-day intensive with a failed marriage; we returned home with a new outlook and a plan to save our marriage. We had been separated for almost 2 years, ready to file for divorce, and Dr. Hawkins worked with us intensely and taught us how to function in a healthy environment and love again! Thank you, Katie, for being patient with us and arranging our schedules. We are MORE than grateful for you all!”Cynthia Carrboro NC
