Gottman Marathon Couples Therapy is an intensive and focused approach to relationship issues that can help couples move quickly through specific issues and learn important new skills in a short period of time.

Marathon sessions are usually booked 4-6 hours per day at a time, for two or more consecutive days.  Breaks are built into the schedule.  Prior to coming in, you both would separately complete an assessment packet which contains several questionnaires about the current state of your relationship, as well as what it is you hope to achieve during therapy.  A brief interview over the phone and review of your questionnaire answers prior to the first session will be conducted.

Couples who might benefit from Gottman Marathon Couples Therapy are:

  • Couples who want a condensed and highly focused intensive approach to specific issues.
  • Couples who want to jump-start their weekly sessions by completing the assessment (both joint and individual assessments) and goal setting in an intensive session.
  • Couples coming from other locations, extended regions, or out-of-state.

 Marathon Therapy is paid in advance and there is a 3 week cancellation policy.  Call 626-221-8632 or Contact Us to schedule your appointment or for further information.
