Relational Life Couples Therapy and Weekend Intensives
Somewhere inside you know that you should have sought help six months ago. Or, perhaps you did seek counsel, and it was not effective. You are now feeling more hopeless than ever before.
You’ve come to the right place.
More than any other therapy that I do in my office, couples come to me in the most crisis.
Like unstoppable bleeding in the relational emergency room, the injury in the couple is incessant. Help is needed fast.
I transform relationships. I work in a sequenced and condensed process that gives couples the maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time. Using my skills as a master-trained Relational Life Therapist (aka Terry Real’s “The New Rules of Marriage”), I use a unique model that is intensive, effective, and results-driven.
Get to the heart of your issues – fast.
Through my laser-like emotional precision and a direct, no bullshit approach, I get to the heart of the issue in a timely manner. The process of change is accelerated to move you and your partner to a healthy way of relating.
I offer real solutions that can revive a connection and create a secure and satisfying relationship.
This model of therapy (RLT) is particularly helpful to partners that are Love Avoidant– those that need a micro-coaching approach to know the ins and outs, the whys and hows, of becoming close and connected to another human being. As if never having entered the candy shop of human connection, Love Avoidants are terrified of close contact, yet have no idea what he or she is missing.
Where we start:
Specifically, I will lead you through a four-step process:
- Assessing the current state of the relationship and identifying the core dysfunctional dance of the two partners;
- Stopping the current injury in the relationship;
- Rebuilding the inner workings of the relationship to turn the tide toward reconnection and healthy functioning;
- Deepening the relationship toward greater intimacy and overall satisfaction.
Call me and we will get started doing it differently and better.
I cannot speak more highly about Ginger’s approach to couple’s counseling. My fiancé and I arrived seeking guidance and tools to establish the sturdiest foundation possible before our upcoming marriage. Ginger taught us communication techniques and the necessary perspective to continue to solidify our relationship, guiding us in the direction of growing together, learning and supporting each other’s strengths and weaknesses. The journey of marriage is unpredictable, but I will be forever grateful to Ginger for opening this door and providing a resource that will undoubtedly serve us for the rest of our lives.

When I first called Ginger to obtain information regarding therapy, I thought she was incredibly expensive and the commute would be annoyingly burdensome. As it turned out, the commute was burdensome, but she turned out to be quite affordable as she saved our marriage. People forget that divorce is even more expensive than therapy, and failure to live life to the fullest cannot be measured…Not only did Ginger teach us how to fall in love again, the process helped with all of our relationships…hiring Ginger was the best decision we have ever made together.

Prior to finding Ginger Sullivan, my spouse and I had used a number of therapists over the course of our almost 30-year marriage with varying levels of effectiveness. We found Ginger’s approach to be more than just the usual – so how did that make you feel? Rather, Ginger is insightful and is a quick read in analyzing the blockages that are occurring in the relationship. As a result, based on that insight, Ginger ends up being less expensive in the long run when retaining a therapist. Regardless, my spouse and I agree that Ginger is cheaper than getting a divorce and is worth every penny.

I got more out of two sessions with you than I did in the prior six months of couples therapy with the prior therapist. Thank you.

Thanks for your work over the weekend. You are amazing at what you do. It really was an honor to be a part of your process.

There have been moments over the past few weeks during this pandemic that I have been really glad we came to you. Because of our work with you, we now have the skills, tools and emotional wherewithal to have handled this unforeseen crisis extremely well.

I once read that most couples wait six years before going to see a relationship counselor and by then it’s often too late. We wanted to work with Ginger early in our relationship – before growing in our bad habits. Ginger didn’t just help us resolve the issues we thought we had at hand – she taught us how to have those and future conflicts in productive ways. She helped us see the places we each got stuck individually and where we get stuck as a couple, helped us heal those wounds, and helped us learn to help ourselves and each other through it in the future. Looking back, I don’t know how anyone has a happy or healthy marriage without doing this kind of work. When we came to Ginger, we didn’t know if we were a good “fit” and if we should stay together. We’ve since gotten married with confidence and, for maybe the first time in our lives, feel stable and safe.

Ironically, I found Ginger from a friend who said ‘if there’s one person who can save your relationship, it’s Ginger.’ That friend was probably correct, but as painful as the process was, I credit Ginger for helping my ex and I work through our ultimate separation and divorce. In our case, it was the right thing to do. Ginger helps you face the hard things in life, saving you from years of suffering as you avoid them. Four years later I was back in Ginger’s office for more relationship counseling. This time it wasn’t to save a relationship, it was to help set one up for success. My wife and I now have relationship skills that have been battlefield tested and we couldn’t be happier. I can’t express the amount of gratitude I feel for Ginger’s wisdom, compassion, and guidance over the years.
T.W., Former Client
Ginger is a knowledgeable and innovative therapist. She challenges her clients to actively craft their best lives. I am a huge fan!
S.H., Former Client
It was mind-blowing! Ginger is great. The weekend far exceeded our expectations.
S.R., Couples Weekend Intensive Participant
After exploring other couples therapists and going through some very difficult times, we’ve realized that you were the most effective therapist for us.
H.G., Former Client
Every couple should spend a weekend with Ginger!
P.D., Couples Weekend Intensive Participant
My dear friends speak very highly of you and what you have done for their marriage. Thank you for all that you do!
