Modern Accelerated Program (MAP Four-Sessions)
This short-term program is minimal commitment yet packed with valuable information/resources, personalized insights, and proven tools that you and your partner can use for a lifetime.
I believe that working on the health of our significant relationships is one of THE most important investments we can make!
There are so many topics committed partners must be able to negotiate successfully over the course of their relationship: intimacy, trust, communication, sex/ affection, outside relationships, desire, and major life transitions…
Taking time to explore a variety of topics impacting the health of your relationship and some common pitfalls before they even happen sets you up for success and satisfaction. One of the myths people have about couples therapy is that things must be “really bad” or you have to be in crisis mode to go–this is simply NOT true! Therapy is also used to enhance connection, satisfaction, and intimacy as you navigate life’s diverse challenges.
Together we will spend four extended sessions diving deep into the specifics of how to do the following:
- improve communication/ address conflict with greater ease
- improve sex/ affection by taking inventory and exploring desire/ fantasy
- intimacy-building exercises designed to help you move the conversation forward when it comes to difficult-to-talk-about concerns
- how to manage stress and navigate uncertain times together
- how to repair after an argument so you can honor upset feelings and move on to more enjoyment
We will also explore this notion of trust and how to protect it and strengthen it over time. In addition, we’ll take a look at how you can preserve a sense of desire in the context of closeness and familiarity so you can operate with greater awareness for this key ingredient.
Finally, we’ll also delve into building a vision for your future lives together taking into account other relationships and experiences you might want to prioritize as you join together moving forward.
As a passionate, licensed marriage and family therapist in NYC, I combine my nearly ten years of clinical experience providing both individual and couples therapy with my in-depth knowledge of relationship health to create a unique program designed to offer you the skills, experience, and enhancement so that the quality of your relationship can serve as a true source of joy and satisfaction.
This program offers extended sessions and a unique curriculum to guide the sessions and help stay focused on the preventive and enhancing aspects of your relationship health. Whereas couples therapy is a longer process with a more extensive time commitment—in couples therapy, you will be spending the first few sessions on assessment. This program is accelerated and designed to target communication, intimacy, affection, and repair in a shorter period of time. Ideal for couples most typically seeking premarital work— meaning more preventive in nature — although this program is well-suited for any couple looking to improve the quality of their relationship. This program offers special pricing at a reduced hourly rate when compared to typical cost of a couple session at Modern MFT. It is designed to be an effective, accessible, time-limited investment for your relationship.
Any couple looking to enhance their relationship can benefit from this special program. If you have been struggling with a few areas, this is a great option for some targeted support so you can move through the difficulties toward greater understanding and satisfaction. The program is also great for couples who are in a relatively good place but who would like to be proactive. Often things are going pretty well, but there are these little areas that seem to repeatedly get in the way.
