How Things Work at The A’nesis Intensive Marriage Retreat
You are required to take the Gottman Relationship Check-up BEFORE you attend your intensive. This evaluation will take you 60-90 minutes to complete. The Gottman Relationship Checkup not only automatically scores a couple’s strengths and challenges, but takes years off the time required to make headway in the counseling process. The cost for you as a couple is $29.00.
YOU MAY NOT ATTEND THE RETREAT IF THIS PIECE OF THE INTENSIVE IS NOT COMPLETED BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL.
Fully HIPAA compliant, the questionnaire consists of 480 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust, as well as parenting, housework, finances, individual areas of concern, and more.
This relationship assessment relies on intensive, detailed, and evidence-based information on why relationships succeed or fail. Developed from over 40 years of scientific research by Dr. John Gottman, this relationship assessment tool relies on intensive, detailed, and evidence-based information on why relationships succeed or fail.

How does the Marriage Intensive Work?
Most couples have a hard time getting away for intensive therapy. For this reason, Trudy has created a 4-day intensive program for marriage transformation. This 4-day program is very intense and is only for couples who are serious about marriage restoration as opposed to wanting validation for why they should be divorced. If you come as a couple serious about having a new marriage to each other, and ready to dig deep and commit to using the trauma techniques Trudy employs, you can expect amazing results.
- First session: Wednesday 9:00-12:00 (Be prepared for a lot of homework the first evening)
- Day two: Thursday 9:00-12:00 and 1:30-4:30
- Day three: Friday 9:00-12:00 and 1:30-4:30
- Day four: Saturday 10:00-12:00. (Afterwards, prepare to complete a hike nearby before returning home.)
Is this a Biblically-based program?
Trudy is a Level II Gottman-trained therapist and uses the Biblical Reference Guide for the Gottman Method so that all teachings for the process are Biblically sound. Trudy also has her Doctorate in Biblical Counseling and will always refer to God’s Word as the Source of her information.
Cost: $2,780 for the 4-day intensive
