Our experiences have led us to an essential conclusion
The Brink is an opportunity for couples to Grow and Transform.
We say this based on our 20+ years helping couples, training therapists and speaking nationally on the benefits of intensive couples therapy. Additionally, we have found that as difficult as this time might be for couples, it is an ideal time to have important conversations that can transform a relationship. We invite you to a Free Consultation to see if a private couples retreat is right for you.
Are you considering separation or divorce?
We believe that arriving at the brink is a necessary stage in every marriage or long term relationship. That’s right, it's not IF you get to the Brink, but what you do WHEN you get there. This stage in a relationship is not something to fear, but it is an indicator that the relationship is ready to undergo a change—a needed and ultimately positive change. Reconnecting or finding a loving way to let go is often necessary, and simpler than most people think.
In addition, the pain of splitting up or staying together in misery is obvious. Most couples have a shared history, worthy of making every effort to honor their relationship even under the most challenging of circumstances, especially when children are involved. In addition, the financial and emotional costs of divorce can potentially be devastating.
Our model works because we offer tailored and focused treatment, which allows greater opportunity for success, even with the most serious of relationship crisis.
While sometimes effective, traditional marriage counseling and couple’s therapy consists of hour-long therapy sessions once per week. We find this approach severely limiting and even potentially harmful for relationships in severe distress.
Before you do, consider what’s possible …
- More love and respect
- A greater understanding about the past
- Finally feeling heard
- Peace of mind about your children’s well-being
- A shared vision for the future
- More confidence about your life decisions
- Clarity about each other's perspectives
- A renewed sense of purpose and desire
Our intensive programs give you an opportunity to push pause on your life and focus on your relationship in ways that open the door to these possibilities. Travel is not necessary for a shift to take place, but many couples prefer to take advantage of experiencing a retreat in a different location. We have found this change of context allows for new perspectives to emerge in unique ways. Wheather you choose to stay local or adventure to a new location, our trained professionals can help you breath life into your life again!
What Our Clients Are Saying...
I can’t believe we were initially concerned about the cost. Its scares I to think what getting a divorce would have cost us. And how unnecessary! Thank you couples on the brink for saving our relationship.Laura, Park Ridge, NJ
We put off going for help way too long. We got the help we needed in the back from the brink intensive and follow-up sessions. Dr. Paul and Dr. Melissa really know their stuff. For us, this was the only way we were going to stay together. Though I was mostly to blame, I never felt ganged up on. If you messed up, go see these people.Mimi, West Palm, Fl
