For anyone who has a marriage that needs work, a couples retreat is the perfect way to reconnect and reestablish the bonds that initially brought you together as a couple. Here at the Relationship Rescue Academy, we have the perfect location to rekindle that fire that every marriage needs to survive.
The Relationship Rescue Academy is the place where you and your spouse can come together and just focus on the two of you. You get to focus on your healing and will get help working through your marital issues with certified and skilled marriage counselors.
If you are feeling like there is no way to bridge the divide that has become the elephant in the room in your marriage, then you need a retreat with us at the Relationship Rescue Academy. Maybe you’re starting to feel like divorce is your only option because things have become so emotionally charged at the house. A retreat is the perfect location to take a break from the stress of your normal daily life in an environment that is welcoming, supportive, and helpful.
We offer two locations to help you on your journey to a renewed marriage. One in Kokomo, Indiana and the other in Orange County, California. The Marriage Renewed Farmhouse is the ideal location to meet your needs.
Our private facilities will help you feel at ease and relaxed while dealing with your most serious relationship issues. What could be better than a distraction free, private, and welcoming environment with fresh air and plenty of tranquility to help put you in the right mindset to heal?
Your time here is completely private with the exception of our counselors. You will meet with your licensed therapist in one-on-one sessions. This might be the most privacy your marriage has seen in years. Here is the true benefit of the therapy you will receive. Your sessions are completely personalized to your specific needs. You and your partner will appreciate the beauty of the surroundings which will only serve to enhance the work that you will be putting into healing your marriage.
Our locations will help you to reconnect with your partner. Maybe you have been living separate lives because of your marital issues, work, kids, and the rest of life’s distractions. Here, the only thing that matters is you and your marriage. All that stress and pressure vanishes with the clean, fresh air that surrounds the two locations.
When you decide to book a retreat with us at the Relationship Rescue Academy, you can expect to put in some quality time and work into your marriage. Our program goals are tailored to your own unique needs. Every marriage has their own issues to work through, and our counselors understand just how profound that dynamic is.
Our goal is to help you create changes in your marriage that will last the rest of your happy lives together. During your one-on-one sessions, you will be taught skills to reshape and retool your current relationship, skills that you will take home and put to use for the days, months, and years afterwards.
Our counselors at the Relationship Rescue Academy are licensed marriage and family therapists. The academy works exclusively with couples who are in need of serious marital counseling.
You will work on creating a more profound understanding of your partner while you create a renewed physical and emotion connection with your partner. You will be given a plan to implement when you leave that will foster a stronger, healthier method of communicating with your partner. These skills will translate to a relationship based on respect, trust, compassion, and love.
You will get quality time with your spouse in a beautiful location. Often, this is the olive branch that leads to a more open and honest marriage. You will be amazed at the value of quality time and strategies that serve to repair the broken aspects of your marriage.
All too often, traditional counseling just helps to create a temporary solution to larger problems. The techniques are never really given the appropriate amount of time to take hold in the relationship so the benefits can be truly actualized.
This is where our intensive retreats are far superior to traditional counseling. We will work with you, passionately, so that you get to the root of your issues and are given working solutions you can implement long after you leave.
We truly care about the people who decide to attend a couple’s retreat. So much time and energy is invested into your relationship that you’ll leave knowing there are people in your corner who truly want your relationship to work.
As an addition to the services offered at our retreat, clients are also offered a follow-up phone or video session with the therapist that you worked with during your retreat. This will help you to remain focused on your ultimate goal of a marriage that is everything you have ever wanted. You will feel like a member of the family with this follow-up session. Your marriage deserves to flourish after your time at the retreat and our therapists will help solidify that bond that was reestablished during your time at the farmhouse or near the beach.
Each of our locations offer the personalized service that has made the Relationship Rescue Academy one of the most sought after couple’s retreats. All prices include the one-on-one counseling sessions, follow-up phone/video session, and lodging. All sessions are with licensed therapists who specialize in marital counseling. Our California location also includes one Pre-Intensive phone/video consultation. Both locations require a $500 deposit to hold you spot.

Marriage is work. Anyone who tries to sell you anything different is lying to you. Most couples want to have a healthy and fulfilling marriage, but it’s not always easy to find the time to work on your marriage. A great option for couples looking to reinvigorate their marriage is to participate in a marriage counseling retreat.
Life can get stressful. Work, bills, kids, mortgages, all these factors can lead to stress in a marriage. Many couples decide to undertake counseling sessions, but those can be tedious and drawn out. Often, the sessions are drawn out an hour at a time over months.
What if you have issues that you want to get resolved right away? What if your marriage is in need of something a little more effective than a weekly counseling session? That’s when you need to look at the options for weekend couples therapy.
A couple’s therapy retreat could be just the prescription needed to save your marriage. Let’s face it, therapy is time consuming. Traditional marriage counseling puts a lot of pressure on the couples to take the limited amount of information they receive each week and then to apply that information to their marriage.
Seems simple enough, but the problem is that the counselor is asking you to put together a broken puzzle while they only give you one or two pieces at a time. This only results in frustration over time. We all know that frustration can quickly lead to resentment, and that’s when marriages suffer dramatically.
So, what are some of the benefits of a couple’s counseling retreat? There are plenty of benefits, truth be told, to taking a weekend to work on your relationship. What happens in a marriage counseling retreat that doesn’t happen in traditional counseling is that both people are essentially a captive audience. There’s nowhere else to go and nothing else taking precedent over the marriage.
There are a lot of shows on TV right now that deal with couple’s therapy in a marriage bootcamp type of setting. If you watch these shows, the participants are living and working on their marriage issues together. Obviously, for the purpose of TV drama, they need all of them in one place to follow and record their time in the sessions and when they are out of them as well.
Even though this concept seems to make good television, it’s based on things that actually work. When you and your spouse are able to dedicate the necessary time to focus on the issues plaguing your relationship, you’ll be forced to work on aspects of your relationship that maybe you have been avoiding.
In a marriage counseling retreat, there’s nowhere else to go and nothing else to do but work on those major issues at hand. Everyone expects marriage to be easy because, since you married the love of your life, the two of you won’t possibly have issues that need worked on.
This just isn’t true. Anything worthwhile takes hard work. You work hard at your job, you work hard at the gym, so why wouldn’t you work twice as hard at your marriage?
There’s no substitute for free time with your spouse without any distractions. When the two of you first started dating, you made the effort to spend quality time together. You were dating one another, which help build the bonds of intimacy between you both.
A marriage counseling retreat will give you some of that quality one-on-one time that is so desperately needed for a marriage to thrive. You’ll have the opportunity to share private, intimate moments with your spouse and fall in love with each other again.
One of the biggest hurdles with traditional counseling is that you return to your busy lives. The tools that you learn are rarely put into practice because both of you resume the daily grind.
The goal of weekend couple’s therapy is for the two of you to learn tools to help with the troubled aspects of your marriage. The best part about this is that you actually get to put these tools to use. The counselors at the retreat aren’t going to teach you something and then not have you practice it. This make and take type of learning is something that will be invaluable to you in your quest to save your marriage.
Most couple’s therapy retreats give you the opportunity to have counseling sessions together, where you work on the issues prevalent in your marriage, along with individual sessions where you are free to explore your own issues and role in the marriage.
Many times, especially with traditional counseling, one partner doesn’t feel like their opinions are being validated or even heard. There are individual issues that need to be worked on as well as those issues that affect the couple.
Meeting with both partners individually allows the therapists the opportunity to see the strengths and weaknesses of each individual. Bringing that knowledge back to the couple’s sessions, the counselor is able to fine tune the weekend goals to best meet your needs.
For example, if one partner thinks the communication is perfectly fine and another believes it to be flawed, that’s something that will come out in these sessions. They will then help you build a plan to start fixing these issues immediately.
Remember fun? Remember dating and courtship? A marriage counseling retreat will help you tap into this part of your relationship too. It’s not all serious. After all, people who are relaxed are much more open to new ideas.
You will have the opportunity to socialize with your spouse and meet other couples if its a group orientated retreat, who are also trying to heal their broken relationships. It can be nice to relax with people who have shared experiences.
An added benefit is that by having fun together you’ll be reminded of many of the good qualities that caused you to fall in love in the first place. Maybe she has a really sarcastic sense of humor, or he can be really romantic. All these great parts that made you fall in love will be fostered at a couple’s therapy retreat.
Regardless of your individual issues or needs, weekend couple’s therapy is something that would be an asset to your marriage. You owe it to one another to reconnect and reinvigorate your marriage. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled.
