Marital Intensive

Marital therapy intensives offer couples a transformative two-day experience nestled in the picturesque surroundings of Colorado Springs. Designed to provide an immersive and focused approach to relationship enhancement, these intensives go beyond traditional counseling sessions. Participants not only engage in targeted therapeutic discussions but also enjoy the convenience of lodging and delectable lunches provided throughout the program. The retreat-like setting encourages couples to delve into their relationship dynamics in a serene and supportive environment. Additionally, participants have the option to extend their stay for an extra day, allowing them more time to reflect, reconnect, and implement the insights gained during the intensive sessions. Max Ziegenhagen's unique approach combines professional expertise with the natural beauty of Colorado Springs, creating a holistic and enriching experience for couples seeking to strengthen their bond.

Intensive therapy for marital experiences often yields superior outcomes compared to traditional weekly sessions due to its concentrated and immersive nature. The extended duration of the intensives allows couples to delve deeply into the complexities of their relationship, providing ample time to address underlying issues and explore effective resolutions. The focused, uninterrupted time promotes a more thorough understanding of each partner's perspectives and encourages open communication. The intensity of these sessions can also break down emotional barriers more efficiently, fostering a quicker path to resolution. Additionally, the continuous support and guidance provided by the therapist over the course of two days create a unique therapeutic environment that accelerates the healing process. Couples often find that the concentrated effort and extended duration of intensive therapy lead to more profound insights, greater breakthroughs, and a more rapid positive transformation in their marital dynamics.

Trauma Intensive

Max Ziegenhagen's trauma intensives, spanning six hours, act as focused interventions comparable to surgical procedures for emotional healing. These intensives employ Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, providing a concentrated and comprehensive approach to reorient triggers and address experienced trauma. Much like a surgical procedure targets a specific issue, these trauma intensives efficiently delve into the root of emotional distress, facilitating transformative healing within a shorter timeframe.
