Long-Distance Relationship Therapy Intensive

A 3 day therapy intensive focused on long distance relationships (LDR)

Overview & Purpose

To provide therapeutic interventions that are specifically tailored to the unique challenges of a LDR. Help couples maintain a fulfilling relationship despite the physical distance and provide them with the confidence and skills to continue improving their relationship long after therapy.

What To Expect

This therapy intensive is tailored to address the challenges that are specific to LDRs. Expect 3 days of focused professional therapy where we will work together on all aspects of your relationship, highlighting what is most important to you. Each day will include 5-6 hours of therapy starting at 10 am, with a lunch break in the middle. Each intensive is unique and will be tailored to the needs of the couple. However, communication, listening, intimacy, boundaries, trust, and past hurts are common topics that many couples find very useful to address. If you aren’t exhausted by the end of the day, there are endless ways to entertain yourselves in and around Salt Lake City regardless of the season.

Before you meet with Dr. Porter Macey you will be sent a questionnaire that will help Porter better understand your relationship’s strengths and challenges as well as your goals as a couple and individual. Please fill these out as accurately as possible so we can make the most of your time at Amber Creek Counseling. When you arrive you will be greeted by Porter. He will start by meeting with each one of you individually to get a deep understanding of the challenges and goals of that individual. After this, the couple will come together and the remainder of the time will be spent focusing on the relationship. As a licensed couple and family therapist, Porter will treat the relationship as the client and will never take sides. His goal is always focused on changing the relationship to make it healthier and more satisfying.

Every LDR therapy intensive includes a follow-up packet filled with resources and activities that will make it easy to sustain the progress made during the intensive and just as importantly, take your relationship even further on your own. Also included is a free follow up appointment scheduled at the end of the intensive. This is usually done online but can be done in person as well.


The cost is $3000 per couple. Includes 15-18 hours face-time with a therapist, 3 days lunch, one follow-up coaching session, and a follow-up relationship packet. Travel expenses, lodging, breakfast, and dinner are not included. However, we have partnered with Castle Creek Inn to offer 20% off your stay when booking for Amber Creek’s LDR retreat. Amber Creek clients also receive a discount on massages at Rebalance Life and Body which is located in the same building as us!
