Private Weekend Couples Intensive Workshop

  • Are you looking for marriage enrichment?
  • How does a whole weekend focused just on the two of you sound?
  • Does your regular couples counseling need a boost of focused skills and tools?
  • Would you like a solid weekend of learning, instead of attending weekly therapy?

The private weekend couples intensive workshop might be the right solution for you. In this format, you and your partner meet with Meredith Keller, LPC in-person in our Basking Ridge office over the weekend. The content of the private couples weekend workshop is based on Meredith's course, Reconnect With Your Partner, but is individualized to fit the specific stage you are in. If you have your own couples counselor, you can be ready to return to your weekly sessions once your weekend intensive is concluded PLUS Meredith and the sending therapist can consult so the weekly couples counseling can maintain what's been learned in the workshop.


The contents of the couples weekend intensive are individualized to fit your needs. You'll gain new insight into yourself and your partner.  Topics to be covered are:

  • Building your support network and relationship skillset
  • Mastering your emotions (instead of over-reacting or shutting down or feeling awful)
  • Listening to your spouse without reacting (even when you disagree)
  • Talking to your partner so they can hear you
  • Brainstorming solutions
  • An advanced view of marriage (and why conflicts occur)
  • Opening up the lines of communication about sex
  • Friendship in a long-term relationship


A two-day private couples intensive that is scheduled in the following way:

Saturday, 9am to 3pm

Sunday, 10am to 3pm

A one-hour lunch break is included in this length of time for each day. Lunch is not included in the cost of the workshop, but we can give you several recommendations for restaurants in the area. It is possible to break up the weekend (which gives you time to practice the skills and come back to refine them) but not possible to book only one day of the weekend's intensive.


You can request to book a private weekend couples intensive workshop directly from our WEBSITE or call the office at 908-246-3074, EXT 3. If you need to break up the weekend, please call the office. Please know no workshops are confirmed until our staff speaks to you directly and a deposit is received.



This cost includes the workbook used in the workshop and cold and hot beverages. Also included is a 1-hour case consultation with your regular couples counselor (if both partners sign a Release of Information) so your therapy benefits from this boost of skills and tools.


This private weekend workshop is not available for insurance reimbursement because it is enrichment, not psychotherapy.


In-person, in our Basking Ridge location.
