Frequently Asked Questions

After you schedule your free session, we will send you a resource that can help you make progress before your first session. In your free session, you will meet with the therapist and talk about your situation and some goals you have for therapy. Next, you and the therapist will schedule your first session and you will fill out some paperwork and get more resources to help you get the most out of your sessions.

You want to feel better about your relationship and it’s understandable this is a consideration.

Insurance coverage varies, but generally couples therapy is not covered and we do not accept insurance. We are happy to provide you with a superbill if you are wishing to receive reimbursement from your insurance provider.

When you work with a therapist from Emergent, you can be sure that they are a trained specialist.

Our expertise includes thousands of hours:

The developmental model created by Ellyn Bader, Ph.D., is a powerful way to transform relationships. This approach addresses the response cycle by using principles of neuroscience, takes into account your family history with the ideas of attachment theory, and gives couples a road map to get unstuck in their sequential journey.

We learned how to deal with the most difficult cases and some of our Colleagues send couples they want to help, but  feel stuck with.  If you should decide to work with us, you will be in good hands.

Jessica is kind, informative, and recognizes our goals as a married couple. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking couples therapy.

~ Lisa Shultz

I can tell her when I don’t want to talk about something. I am so glad that can be an answer! I didn’t want to say that before because I didn’t feel comfortable

~ JM

Emergent gave us a forum to focus exclusively on the “nuts and bolts” of being with each other. It taught me to lead more with appreciation and helped each of us to better communicate real feelings with each other

~ AS

Jessica Myers Adams is knowledgeable, empathetic and compassionate. She has helped me to work on transforming my life and look toward a much more positive future. She is without a doubt the most competent and therapist I have ever worked with. I strongly recommend her!

~ Jeff Simms
Before I wasn’t sure how to navigate conflict, but we learned ways to better communicate. Especially in times of conflict
~ Former client
Now we can be more honest and open, understanding that we can feel differently at the same time and that’s okay–both can be right I feel like we are both present in dealing with issues instead of me feeling alone.

Jessica was very friendly and helpful. My husband and I really benefitted from seeing her
~ Meaghan Dorn

Who doesn’t want a great relationship? I turned to Emergent Relationship Center, looking for just that. I thought we would be exploring our relationship with Jessica, but I was wrong; we started our relationship goals with Gloria (aka Glowria). Gloria was unbiased, honest and a great listener. She provide various tools for us to use independently. We are 6 weeks in and communicating as if we just met! We strongly recommend Gloria @ Emergent Relationship Center. Gloria, thank you for setting us up for a loving future!
