What to Expect During Your Marriage Intensive
During your Marriage Intensive, you will experience a peaceful and safe environment in which you can share openly and move towards real change within your relationship. You can expect to feel challenged—but in good ways that cause you to evaluate what you do and why. You can also expect to feel anticipation and hope for a marriage that is also a great friendship.
You will learn how to pay attention to what it’s like to be married to you and to use that feedback in order to make it a better experience. You will also have the incredible opportunity of being able to see into your spouse’s heart more deeply and understand how to love him or her best. The experience of a marriage intensive provides you the space to find a peaceful solution that uses your conflicts to build something totally new and better.
An Intensive Approach to Counseling
Statistics indicate that once-a-week marriage counseling often ends with a disappointing list of communication tools and little resolution of the real problems. You are at a crossroad, and a Marriage Intensive can help bring greater clarity about which way to turn. Dr. Hawkins, Director and Founder of the Marriage Recovery Center, shares how the decision to try something different can be a great catalyst for replacing old habits with healthier patterns that build your marriage.
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 2 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
