Relationship Counseling Done Differently

At Link Relationship Counseling, Gina Young LPC uses intensive full-day sessions to give your relationship time, safe space, and one-on-one counsel to address the issues that concern you most.  Invest in your relationship and start to heal the pain and patterns keeping you apart.

Intensive Overview

Intensive Couple Therapy sessions are designed to give couples the resources needed to address issues they are experiencing.  Sessions start at 9:00am and end at 3:00pm. Couples work together or individually with Gina Young LPC to identify goals, slow down interactions, make changes, communicate effectively, meet needs, and plan for the future.  Clients have the option of continuing with the full-day option after one session or switching to shorter 2 or 3 hour sessions for follow-up care.

Therapy Model

    Therapies such as Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Couple Therapy are utilized to provide understanding of how to break negative relational patterns, grow emotional connection, resolve conflict, and heal relational wounds.  

    The EFT model generally reports a 70-73% rate of change from distress to closeness. EFT participants also report 80-90% rate of overall improvement.        

    The Gottman method is based on 40 years of research and is very effective in assessment and providing an intellectual understanding of couple’s problems and solutions.

    Along with these two empirically validated therapies, other resources are incorporated to address specific concerns of infidelity, betrayal, spiritual issues and conflicting goals.

Precluded Issues

    An Intensive session is not appropriate for all couples.  It is recommended you seek individual counsel prior to marriage or couple counseling if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • An ongoing emotional or physical affair

  • A history of abuse where one or both partners do not feel safe within the relationship

  • An untreated addiction                              

Rates for Service

    Private pay rates are $110 per therapy hour and $550 for a full-day intensive.  Cash, credit card, and check are accepted forms of payment.  Insurance does not cover intensive relationship counseling.
