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

Is your relationship an unending series of unresolved problems?

Are You Walking on eggshells?


Desperate for passion?

There is still hope

Not all couples therapy is created equal and even the experts sometimes find that the regular therapy hour or 90 minute session isn’t long enough.

Our extended sessions and day long retreats give couples the time to take a deeper dive and explore, identify and move past the broken patterns of conflict, defensiveness, and shut down that have built walls up between them.

Here at Emergent, we will tailor your work so that you get the quickest results. Sometimes this means booking a mini intensive (4 hours) or a full day dedicated to getting you unstuck.

Relationship Rescue Intensive
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 We call it a “Game Changer”, we’re serious. Our 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 our 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 our guidance.

This is how you create rapid results

​While you may feel overwhelmed by setting aside a whole day for therapy, let us 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, the 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • A full day away from your normal routine allows you to privately focus on the issues at hand. You’re our 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.

An Intensive is a chance for a beautiful getaway in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We 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.

​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.
