For individual therapy, the most typical answer to this question is once a week. For couples therapy, the answer is usually 2-4 hours a week (a combination of meeting together and separately) in the first couple months, and then reduced significantly as progress is made. We want to make a difference, and we know that we need you to be invested in order to change patterns in your relationship. Sometimes schedules or insurance limit options, which then will also impact results. For couples with very minor problems, or couples with very severe problems a less or more intense format will be recommended.
