Retreat Intensives for Couples

Located in beautiful, Western North Carolina, these customizable couples retreats may be just what you and your partner are looking for! 

Weekly therapy is not always the best fit for couples in distress. Sometimes a more focused and intensive approach is necessary. Maybe you are stuck in your current therapy or looking to get a jump-start on longstanding difficulties.  Maybe the condensed nature of a 2 or 3 day intensive just appeals to you, or maybe weekly appointments don't fit well into your busy family and work schedules. Maybe you just want to get away in order to attend deeply to your partner's needs and your own. If so, a retreat intensive with Ned may be just the solution for you. 

Intensive retreats give couples the opportunity to do 3-6 months worth of therapy in a two to three day period at Lake Junaluska Conference Center in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.  Intensives get to the heart of the matter quickly and assist couples in addressing long standing issues at depth. 

Led by Ned Martin, Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina, #8147; ICEEFT Certified EFT Therapist for Couples; National Certified Counselor, National Board of Certified Counselors, #269252; Haden Institute Certified Spiritual Director.
