Intensive Relationship Assessment Now Available
Michael Brown, MSC, LMFT
Are you interested in a relationship assessment and possibly couples therapy but cannot fit it into your weekly schedule? Are you interested in seeing a Certified Gottman Therapist but are traveling from a considerable distance? Happy Couples Healthy Communities is now offering an Intensive Relationship Assessment.
This assessment consists of three 90-minute sessions in one day. Couples normally spread this process out over a couple weeks: with the Intensive Relationship Assessment, you will have the opportunity to do this all in one day.
Prior to the assessment sessions, you will be asked to complete an online relationship assessment, the Gottman Relationship Checkup, to help us better understand your relationship. This assessment is fully HIPAA compliant, automatically scores a couple’s strengths and challenges, and provides detailed clinical feedback and suggestions for a treatment plan with specific recommendations for intervention. The cost of the Gottman Relationship Checkup is $29 per couple and is paid directly to the Gottman Institute through the online portal.
The first session is a conjoint session with you and your spouse or partner. We will talk about the history of your relationship, areas of concern, and possible goals for treatment.
In the next session, I will meet with each of you individually for 45 minutes each to learn of your personal histories and to give each of you an opportunity to share thoughts, feelings, and perceptions. In the final session of assessment, I will share with you my recommendations for treatment and work to define mutually agreed upon goals for your therapy, if you should decide to go forward with therapy.
The schedule for this Intensive Relationship Assessment is from 9:00 to 12:00 in the morning and from 1:30 to 3:00 in the afternoon, with a break for lunch and preparation of the feedback. Times may be subject to change by mutual agreement but must include a morning block.
The normal cost of the three sessions would be $175 per 90-minute session, for a total of $525. However, we are offering the Intensive Relationship Assessment for only $150 per 90-minute session, for a total of $450 (a $75 savings).
If you are interested in an Intensive Relationship Assessment, please call me at 904.289.2954 or use the Contact Us form. I will be happy to answer your questions, provide a brief, free phone consultation, and set up an appointment.
