THE RELATIONSHIP RECONNECTOR
A private, well-planned, thoughtful program to help couples create the intimacy they crave.
Phase 1: Introduction
This Phase Has 4 Steps:
1 – Intro Session as a couple
2 – Assessment (The Gottman Institute’s Relationship Check Up) – This questionnaire is a deep dive into your relationship history. It takes about an hour to complete on your private device. It is confidential and only your counselor will see the results.
3 – Separate meetings one-on-one with your counselor after s/he has reviewed your Assessment reports. The one-on-one meetings are designed to help your professional tailor the plan to your specific situation.
4 – Meet together with your counselor again to collaborate and discuss a customized roadmap for your future sessions.
During the Re-Connecting Phase your counselor will use the Relationship Roadmap to tailor sessions to your needs. You are also invited to share your preferences throughout the process. The length and focus of this phase can vary greatly, based upon many factors unique to your relationship. Some couples have needed as few as 6 sessions. Others have needed many more, especially when therapy focuses on repairing broken trust, or recovering from infidelity. At many points you and your counselor will have a chance to review your progress throughout the phase and you may change your goals at any time.
Phase 3: Maintenance
Strong relationships, much like your car, require regularly scheduled maintenance to keep it in excellent condition. Once you and your counselor mutually determine it is appropriate, you will move into the maintenance phase. Here, you will attend “check in” appointments in increments (every 3-6 months) to maintain the skills you learned in earlier phases. You will also have a chance to consult with your counselor on any life changes or new concerns. Some couples have said this phase provided them a nice “safety net” to rely on during times of major life transitions, like welcoming a new baby or major career changes. Others find the maintenance phase to be a perfect reminder and a nice “time out” from the busy-ness of life that gives them chance to deeply reconnect.
IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN TROUBLE?
There’s nothing like the heartache and pain of missing that special connection you once shared.
You miss the way you two used to connect so naturally. You’ve tried everything, maybe even counseling that didn’t go so well, to get it back. Maybe you’re secretly starting to lose hope. Somewhere inside, though, there’s the tiniest glimmer of hope that there’s still a chance it can work. You still hope that you’ll find intimacy, with each other, again.
Or maybe infidelity or deception has wreaked havoc on your marriage and you wonder if you’ll ever be able to get past this. Some days you’re not sure you want to. But on other days, you think just maybe this could work, with the right help.
You’re tired of living like roommates. You’re tired of the constant arguing. You’re ready to feel like YOU TWO again.
Relationships deserve a specialist’s care. That’s where the Relationship Reconnector program comes in.
Does my insurance cover this program?
Medical insurance plans cover treatments for biologically based diagnoses. While Alfa Counseling knows that relationship enhancement can help improve overall well-being, insurance companies do not usually consider couples counseling, solely for the sake of improving your relationship, to be medically necessary. The Relationship Reconnector Program is a self-pay program offered by our founder, Jessica Wade, MA, LPCC-S
Wait, I heard that my insurance will cover Couples Counseling.
Yes! Many insurance companies typically will cover couples counseling that is used to treat an individual's symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other mental health needs* that are deemed "medically necessary" by your insurance company. Our team can offer couples counseling designed to address your unique needs.
The Relationship Reconnector program is intended to enhance your relationship, bring you to greater understanding of one another, and help you create the intimacy you crave. While most people do say they feel better when their relationship is doing well, this program not designed to treat mental health symptoms directly.
*Please check your specific plan to be sure. Coverage varies greatly and Alfa Counseling cannot guarantee insurance coverage.
