Communication Problems?

Couples Intensive Boot Camp Harrisburg PA

Is your marriage in crisis? Do you hate that you’re seriously considering divorce? Do you feel like your partner is a distant stranger? Maybe you don’t recognize your life anymore.

I can help.

I believe that no marriage is beyond hope, and that a five-star relationship is always possible.

A Relationship Intensive is a private, personalized experience designed to move you through months of counseling in one day.

Do You Need An Immediate Solution?

Are you worried that your relationship may not last much longer? Have you been thinking about ending the relationship yourself or are you worried that your partner is going to end the relationship sometime soon?

The Intensive format helps rescue, repair, and refresh relationships with the leading program that is available both onsite or online.

An Intensive or Relationship Boot Camp Session Can Turn Your Relationship Around

Is This Right For You?
Intensives are for if you want to…
  • Learn the common traps and patterns that leave you feeling disconnected… and feel like your partner finally understands you.
  • Get results quickly and privately.
  • Address the root of your issues, instead of tackling the problem of the week – and then learn how to move forward.
  • “Stop the bleeding” of a crisis like infidelity, addiction, or clashing parenting differences.
  • Dedicate time for just the two of you to get your relationship back on track.
  • Feel emotionally and sexually alive again.
  • Feel appreciated, respected, and loved again.
Why The Customized Intensive Deep Dive Format Works

The Emergent Relationship Center experience is truly different from other intensive programs. When I call it a “Game Changer”, I’m serious. My approach is not only about the rapid progress you’ll make during our day together. There’s continued support for your new skills. After the initial breakthroughs in communication, our follow-up sessions will give you more tools to transform your relationship.

You’ll move from being opponents in your marriage to being on the same team. And, just like other successful teams, you’ll be doing it with a caring coach.

With the typical weekly therapy model, you lose momentum. New problems pop up after you leave the office, and suddenly, therapy is only putting out the fire of the week. You never catch up to working on the real issues.

50 minutes is not enough time to talk in depth. Your sessions can be disrupted or interrupted. Or it takes 40 minutes to get to the heart of the issue… and 10 more minutes is not enough time to make the change your relationship deserves.

By taking advantage of my longer sessions, you build on the momentum. You have more “a-ha!” moments. You get more insights, your partner finally understands what you’re saying, and you have time to practice what you’re learning right then, with my guidance.

This is how you create rapid results

​While you may feel overwhelmed by setting aside a whole day for therapy, let me reassure you that it’s not as intense as you think.

The time away you take for an intensive is an asset.

Many couples report that it’s actually easier to take a day off than trying to get away for a few hours each week.

No more compartmentalizing your day or leaving therapy in a tizzy. No more having to muscle your way through the rest of your day, competing with the emotional drain of a tough session.

Many couples combine an intensive with a weekend getaway. The vacation or retreat mentality lets you leave everyday stresses behind and really focus on your relationship without other distractions.

But, after the weekend is done, my Deep Dive Intensives go beyond those initial breakthroughs. We don’t leave you with just insights and tools. We’ll continue to follow up and ensure that you’re on track and getting stronger in your communication skills.

​The progress will continue.

Meet Jessica Myers-Adams

The reassurance you need that you are working with a highly skilled and specialized relationship therapist.

Because I’ve been through hell and back, I don’t flinch when couples come to me with issues like the crisis of an affair, eruptive fighting, or the paralysis of isolation inside their relationship.

After the honeymoon period was over, my partner and I went through years of scrapping, so believe me when I say “I know what you’re going through.”

I’m proud to say that facing years of conflict in my relationship has given me a 360° perspective on what it’s like to screw up, own up to it… and then stick with it until the relationship is strong and vibrant.

This is why I’m so excited to work with couples. I believe that your life, and your relationship, can become even stronger thanks to its struggles. You just need a guide, and the space to work on your relationship.

We’ll use neuroscience, work with your attachment style, and the current moments of “is-ness” to bring you: to a place of confidence, to help you and your partner reconnect, to soothe the recurring fights, and to recognize the good in one another again.

I specialize in couples therapy and relationship dynamics. I am a Gestalt trained therapist and use the Bader-Pearson Developmental Model of couples counseling.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • A full day away from your normal routine allows you to privately focus on the issues at hand. You’re my full focus during the day.
  • Longer session times let us dig in much faster and more efficiently.
  • We address the root of the problem rather than the fight of the week.
  • Your follow up sessions both keep you on track and build on your momentum. You’ll keep exercising your new strengths and skills.
  • With regular therapy, the drain can get clogged between sessions. Clearing that out takes time. Without the distractions of weekly build up, we can get 3 months of therapy done in one sitting. It’s powerful, and efficient.

We won’t run out of time just before we start to solve your problem.

An Intensive is a chance for a beautiful getaway in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I encourage you to use this time as a retreat, even if you are local. This concentrated time on your relationship can propel you toward powerful change and give you time to focus on restoring your relationship and making it thrive. It allows you to get away from your regular schedule, environment, and life, while you focus.

I am 1.5 hours from Philadelphia and 3.5 hours from Pittsburgh. I am looking for an agreement to get discounts on hotel accommodations a mile away from my office.

Pittsburgh, PA – 3.5 hours
New York City (NYC) – 2.5 hours
Philadelphia, PA – 2 hours
Wilmington, DE – 2 hours
Newark, NJ – 2.5 hours
Trenton, NJ – 2 hours
Baltimore, MD – 1.5 hours

The closest airport is Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (MDT). This is about  20 minutes from my office. Newark, New Jersey (EWR)Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PHL), and Lehigh Valley International (ABE) airports are also conveniently with in driving distance from my office. 

If, after our free phone consultation, you decide to come in, I’ll check in with you in the first hour. If you decide it’s not for you, or you can’t see the value in the direction we’re headed, we’ll scratch the session right there. You pay nothing.

I’ve never had that happen before. However, if you don’t feel like you’re making the progress you want in just one hour, you can leave with no obligation no return. And you pay nothing. I promise. No catch, no fine print.

Give me a call today to see if we’re a good fit to work together.

​You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

The problems and struggles in your relationship didn’t happen immediately, and they can’t be fixed immediately. But an Intensive is the closest you can get to overnight results.

If you want results quickly, an intensive gets you progress fast. The focused attention you receive can give you three months of therapy in just one session.

An intensive is right for you if…

  • You’re about to give up on your marriage, but there’s a part of you that wants to give it one more chance
  • You want to feel lighter and happier in your relationship
  • You’re tired of feeling powerless when you think about your marriage
  • You want practical, specific tools you can use to make your partnership work
  • You struggle to find the words to express what you want to say, and feel frustrated that you’re constantly misunderstood
  • You’re tired of repeating the same old fight
  • “We can’t communicate!” is a common frustration at home
  • You have tried marriage and individual therapy in the past and it hasn’t worked
  • Your partner feels more like a roommate than a lover
  • You want to understand and connect with your partner, but you’re not sure how
  • You want to feel loved, supported, and understood again – like a true partner
  • You want to make these changes privately

You don’t need to have tried therapy before to make good use of an Intensive. In fact, a clean slate is also beneficial! Intensives are great opportunities to take a look at your unique cycles and patterns, and learn the tools to reconnect.

Do you invest in the things in your life that fill you up? Hobbies, passions, travel, dining out?

Life is richer when you invest in the relationships and things that matter most to you. Your marriage is the most important relationship of your life, so why not invest in that as well?

If you consider the cost of ongoing therapy, you could spend much more on weekly sessions, and prolong the agony as you take weeks to heal from misunderstandings and fights. You lose your progress, adding on even more sessions. And that doesn’t include the cost of divorce lawyers, moving, child support, or ongoing counseling if weekly sessions can’t save your marriage.

The immeasurable cost of not seeking relationship help is the loneliness, exhaustion, and hopelessness that comes from a disconnected relationship.

A customized intensive is the most time and cost effective way to help your relationship thrive. It’s focused, exclusive to your problems, and you have skilled guidance throughout.

While it may sound like a cliché, it’s a real question: How could you afford not to invest in the one relationship that it your greatest possible source of happiness and strength?
You spend so much time and energy taking care of people around you. NOW is the time to take care of yourself and your most important relationship.
