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.
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.
