For professionals, clients who travel frequently, or for clients who want to do two months’ worth of work in a two or three day period, Marathon Sessions are an ideal option. These sessions typically last for four to six hours per day (with breaks and meals spread throughout, of course).

Marathon Sessions Are Appropriate For:

  1. Couples who want Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy and do not have a Certified Gottman Therapist nearby.
  2. Professional people with busy schedules, for whom attending weekly sessions would be difficult
  3. Couples who want to make progress quickly

Marathon Sessions Are Not Appropriate For:

  1. Couples who are coping with an addiction to alcohol or other drugs
  2. Couples who have had serious violence in their relationship; if threats have been made that violence may or occur, or if either partner is afraid that violence may occur
  3. If either partner has a serious, current, untreated mental illness. This does not include mental illness which is under control with medication.
  4. If there is an undisclosed, current affair that a partner is unwilling to disclose, therapy can take place only when the partner is ready to disclose and discuss the affair, with the other partner present.
  5. If either partner is currently experiencing suicidal or homicidal thoughts, or has a history of inflicting serious harm on him/herself or another person.

If both partners have insurance, the first two hours of each day’s session may be covered. The remaining hours of the session will be billed at the private pay rate of $200.00 per hour.
