Hey all!

This is Sam Garanzini from the Couples Therapy Training Academy

Let’s face it.

Our industry changed overnight.

Covid-19, the economy, social unrest, home schooling for all…

But the relationship problems that people are facing didn’t change.

Marriages are still struggling with affairs, attachment issues, PTSD/trauma, and high conflict.

They now want you to fix their problems through telehealth.

Sounds impossible?

Many therapists are worried about how best to help couples during this time.

Therapists are also worried about maintaining a stable income, navigating sliding scale requests, selling their online courses, and whether their workshops will return in the same manner prior to Covid-19.

When it comes to worry and fear, I was right where you’re at many years ago.

In 2008, during the worst financial crisis since the depression, my overpriced and newly-bought San Francisco condo was worth $200k less than I paid for it.

I was offering session-by-session therapy, and I was scared.

For real.

My husband and I figured it out the short-term and the long-term plan.

We set an intention each day to pull ourselves out of that mess.

And our clients.

Most importantly, we reached out for help and developed connections with therapists we could trust.

Given all that has happened recently, I had an idea…

Let me tell you what we were thinking…

I recently ran a survey to the therapists in my circle all about the struggles they’re experiencing with couples, especially as the world is changing around us.

The survey results: The major challenge that you seem to be experiencing is how to work with high conflict couples, relationships struggling with affairs, attachment wounds, or trauma/PTSD.

To respond to the needs of your community, you want to learn how to do these things via telehealth.

Some couples are happy to move online with you.

A few are not. Now what?

Based on the OVERWHELMING interest I recently created an opportunity for a SMALL number of clinicians to work with myself, and several guest speakers, all trained in sub-specialities to help you become successful.

High Conflict Couples Masterclass

Sam Garanzini, MFT, and Alapaki Yee, MFT are Certified Gottman Couples Therapists and your hosts for the course. We’re also excited to welcome Jackie Pack, LCSW, Marni Feuerman, MSW, PsyD, and Erika Miley, MFT to the faculty team. Scroll up to see their specialties and when they’ll be teaching during the Masterclass.

How much does this cost?

This kind of clinical Masterclass experience normally would cost upwards of $2000 in case consultation expenses, and business knowledge you receive. We’ve included an additional $1695 in bonus material to ensure your success. But, because of all the changes in the world, we’re making this on-demand course available for 90% off.

How long will I have access?

You can watch the videos at any time. You can also comment below the videos if you need clarification on a concept. You’ll have lifetime access to this course. As we add material, you continue your access to the new items.

Do I have the option for meeting live for group supervision / consultation? How am I supported after the course?

YES! While you’re getting a ton of helpful insight out of the course, you'll probably want the chance to get together and get clarification on the material.

This Masterclass participants have access to three (3) one-hour “Roundtable sessions to…

• Clarify materials...

• Discuss sticking points...

• Discover the steps you need to implement based on what you’ve learned…

• Work on your marketing materials…

• Network with other like-minded and similarly motivated therapists…

• Get to know your instructors…

• Or simply listen and learn.

The cost for Roundtable is totally included, and you simply need to use them within three months of purchase.

If you want to begin interacting with the material, instructors, and other like-minded students, then Roundtable is the place for you.

Are refunds available if I’m not happy with the course?

Of course. If you watch the first session and decide it’s not right for you, then a full refund is issued. After that session we cannot give a refund, but you’ll retain access to the materials.

When does it start and end?

These recorded sessions are packaged as a course featuring all the difficult situations you were never taught in graduate school. :) You can get help in the comments if needed, or return to the material as you get difficult couples down the road. We’re here for you!

Who is this for (and not for)?

This is for relationship therapists, counselors, psychologists, clergy, and experienced, certified coaches. Interns and graduate students may attend and participate only if they are seeing couples in therapy.

This is not for those who work closely with couples in a supportive way but are not therapists (teachers, nurses, adoption counselors).

This Masterclass is not appropriate for those who have not completed graduate coursework in couples therapy and psychopathology. Contact us at admin@couplestherapytraining.org if you have questions prior to joining.

Some of our other materials are probably right for you. We want you to be successful and can point you in the right direction even if this isn’t a good fit.

Are there CEU’s?

As of 2024, no, unfortunately. The APA massively increased the amount of paperwork required to include Continuing Education Units, which caused many other states to follow suit. To compensate for this and elevate your experience, we've added the live "Roundtable" meetings on a weekly basis which allows you to get immediate help and consultation on your cases, and/or marketing advice to attract great couples looking to do the work.

Is there a pre-licensed discount?

If you are eligible for the Masterclass (see: “Who is this for (and not for)?” answer…) then students in their graduate program as well as interns will receive $50 off. Contact us after you register so that we can verify your eligibility for the discount. It will then be credited back to your card.

Are there any bonuses you’ve added?

Definitely. We’ve thrown in $1695 in bonus trainings about extremely difficult couples therapy cases, AND included our signature method we used to scale our Institute to multi-six-figure revenue. (See below for details.)
