“ I feel like we had hope for our future together
and now we have an actual path! ”

We were blown away. The experience was so much more than we had anticipated - and we had high hopes to begin with!!

The therapist was masterful and exceptionally skilled - and one of us is a psychologist, so we say that with real knowledge of the field. She was also (importantly to us) very relatable and humorous when appropriate.

We absolutely loved our experience and would (and have!) recommended this program to people we care about. I feel like we had hope for our future together and now we have an actual path! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!

“She quickly got to the root of some of our
recurring themes and patterns”

What an amazing week of self and partner discoveries!

PhD (soon to be) Forestal, took us on a journey into ourselves with one another in seas that always existed back to our childhood and not only navigated the dangerous waters but served as a lifeguard and life preserver simultaneously.

She did this so well when the waves were VERY capable of taking us under. She quickly got to the root of some of our recurring themes and patterns which boiled down to attachment, abandonment, love and vulnerability.

Very scary stuff but she was the PERFECT Captain in making sure her passengers (us) were safe, felt heard, validated and cared for.

In our last hour of the intensive, a bombshell was dropped and we ran out of time to discuss at great length. The tools and understanding that we learned, has allowed us to paddle our own boat while working from a conscious place of empathy, trust, love, self understanding and most importantly, understanding of our partner.

She equipped us with this and while there are waves, we are optimistic that we will eventually sail and sail VERY WELL soon. We started with the 3 day cruise but begged the captain for another. 4 days was worth every penny with someone so gifted!

“Our counselor was so amazing! She is a straight shooter”

"We had let our marriage take a back seat for years. It had gotten so bad that we could no longer communicate about much, and we were staying in separate parts of the house just to avoid arguments.

We knew we needed help. I am so glad that we found relationship rescue academy. Our counselor was so amazing! She is a straight shooter and I was able to see how ridiculous our arguments actually were.

The 4-day intensive was so effective in changing how we thought about each other. Please do yourself a favor, if you are wondering if this will help your marriage, trust this skeptic. P.S., we are getting back to feeling like we did when we were dating, enjoying each other and having fun!"

“This intensive has brought us back from misery and the brink of worsening disconnect”

"We were in a relationship quagmire. For many many years we just were not connecting. We would have some good weeks and followed by periods of tension and sadness and anger.

We were basically living apart in the same house a lot of the time which was sad but we couldn’t fix it. Of course all marriages suffer through rough times but we were stuck - for years. We tried marriage counseling for 6 months but weren’t getting anywhere.

It was a desperate measure to sign up for the intensive. Did it mean we were admitting we needed help? We DID need help. Why go on vacation and fight in another tourist attraction like we have in the past few years.

Why not try this intensive and see where it takes us. It is certainly worth the try and better than paying lawyers to divide our lives. And we did the right thing.

The intensive was challenging and relaxing at the same time. We were emotionally opening up and were also not fighting! We had to work through our feelings and hot button topics but were also learning how to get back to the connection we used to have.

Tanika really helped us remember how we give and receive love, what our arguing styles are, how to communicate effectively and listen to each other, learning to forgive one another and what works and what doesn’t. We took the 4-day intensive and Tanika was very patient with us in individual and couples sessions.

The setting was perfect and she came to the house to meet US! She did a wonderful job creating a safe space for both of us to talk and was intuitive and even heard what we weren’t saying and alerted our partner to important information we may have missed.

This intensive has brought us back from misery and the brink of worsening disconnect. Today we are working intentionally everyday to show our love for each other and communicating and NO longer fighting but rather listening. We are happier and more relaxed at home and showing affection in ways our partner appreciates.

We have already recommended Tanika to couples that we know and would recommend her if you want to remember how to love and communicate with your spouse. I am not one to write much but this intensive - I believe in. Six months of intensive therapy in 4 days was so much better than 50 minute sessions that may or may not result in progress.

You don’t have to be desperate to take this intensive, you can also go to learn how to communicate as people and relationships change in a marriage. We are even considering it as an engagement gift when the time comes for our children. Thank you."

“We Left The Intensive Feeling Positive and Connected”

"We flew from Australia to attend the 3-day relationship rescue intensive in Kokomo, Indiana. We had an initial interview online with Tanika and both my partner and I felt instantly comfortable with her.

The farmhouse is in a stunning location and has been beautifully remodeled. It was the ideal setting for my partner and I to reconnect and take stock of what had happened to our relationship.

Tanika helped us learn the skills necessary to get through an emotional affair and to learn how to turn towards each other and really accept each other for our flaws. We had tried counselling before but felt judged and uncomfortable. I was struggling to see how I could forgive him but wanted so badly for our two young girls to have both parents at home together in a loving family.

Tanika was so supportive and full of joy. She helped us see the good in each other and show us how easily it is for relationships to get off track; how good people make mistakes and also how it is possible to start again. We left the intensive feeling positive and connected and grateful that she showed us how to work together.

She provided a non-judgemental safe space for us to discuss our issues; provided perspective and guidance as well as specific communication skills that will last a lifetime. There is still work to be done to rebuild the trust that was destroyed but we really appreciate everything Tanika taught us.

I just wish we could have brought her back to Australia with us! If you have fallen apart, go to her. She will remind you why you fell in love and teach you how to be the best couple you can be. Thank you Tanika."

“I truly believe the next 25 years will our best”

"We spent three days, working with Tanika. What an amazing person, and the time and effort she put in to help save our marriage is nothing less than amazing.

We learned so much about effective communication, better understanding each other, and so much about each other, even after 25 years together. I truly believe the next 25 years will our best, due to the tools we received with Relationship Rescue Academy!"

“This is Going to Definitely be a Game Changer for us”

"Just wanted to say thank you again for all the work you put into Josh and I this weekend. I also wanted to thank you for giving us a discount so we can afford to do this.

This is going to definitely be a game changer for us and we are excited to us our new tools to better our relationship. We would love to see you again to continue our maintenance work. We appreciate you❤️ thanks again.."

“On a Scale of 1-10, This Program is a 20”

"I can't began to thank you for this weekend. Our therapist was so welcoming and friendly and shows great empathy. We felt no sense of judgement from her only a willingness to help both of us and to help save our marriage.

My husband and I learned some things about ourselves this weekend that we have been searching for answers to for a very long time. She was able to spot our personal issues almost immediately and help us learn how our personal issues play a direct role in our marriage and how we relate to one another.

I came into this weekend with a sense of hopefulness and also a feeling that if this didn't work, our marriage would probably not survive much longer. After this weekend, I know that we will be better personally and because of that personal growth we will be able to be better for one another.

I had read reviews about this program before coming and I too am a firm believer in the power of such intense counseling to save a marriage. On a scale of 1-10, this program is a 20!!! Thank you again for everything that you have done for us individually and for us as a married couple.

Please keep doing what you are doing, you are truly helping people when they are at their most vulnerable place in life. I feel confident that Rob and I will be able to live a long and happy life TOGETHER!!!"

“For anyone thinking about this and the time and money, its worth it”

"You could say I'm not a big "therapy" person and was somewhat hesitant to go through this experience, but knowing that our relationship needed some help I agreed.

This was the best decision, after just a few short hours, a felt a great burden lifted from my shoulders as Tanika guided us through the whole relationship conundrum.

The 3 day intensive experience is the way to get through the work and focus solely on each other with no external distractions. For anyone thinking about this and the time and money; its worth it.

Consider doing therapy each week for an hour and then getting back to your normal day to day lives; then re-group a week that really the best way? I say no, make the effort...its definitely worth it. Thank you Tanika for you guidance and insight to get my wife and I to the place we had been missing for so many years."

“She really is a masterful couples therapist”

"Tanika is amazing! When you work with her, it feels right away like she has a genuine interest in helping you both get on track. She has concrete approaches to better communication and helps you practice them with her guidance.

Her format works so much better than weekly therapy, which we did unsuccessfully, because you can’t ‘get away’ emotionally after 6 hours straight for 2 or more days.

She knows how to get to the core of the matter and calls you out gently but appropriately when you’re off, which is a testament to her ability to build a relationship with you. I highly recommend working with Tanika. She really is a masterful couples therapist."

Don’t Just Take Our Word for it…More Reviews

“I went in with doubt but came
out a believer”

At first I didn't think going to the retreat would help. The first day I thought my spouse would listen to the therapist and still do the same old thing. By the second day we had already experienced emotional break through and I felt as if a weight was lifted off of me.

At first I just doubted but my husband responded so well to the safety provided in the communication tool that I felt as if his comfort was what really would spark the change.

I went in with doubt but came out a believer and feeling as if I could start taking down the wall I had built up over the years.

“We Called off our Divorce”

We had already filed for divorce and were separating our assets. We decided to attend this intensive in order to see if anything was salvageable before throwing away 3 decades of marriage. We are so grateful for making this decision.

We gained an understanding of why we stayed in what seemed to be a never ending cycle and we learned tools to get out of the cycle.

We called off our divorce. We are very satisfied with the power we have to do the work and even our adult children are elated about our new start.

“I Discovered that I had Been Sabotaging my Marriage”

I am so happy we decided to attend the Relationship Rescue Academy intensive. I discovered that I had been sabotaging my marriage because I was use to chaos in my past. After discovering that I would not allow my marriage to get to a place of stability, it allowed me to challenge my thinking as well as my actions. I now know why I was so unhappy.

Self awareness challenged me to recognize what I was doing and put together an action plan to do something different that would have a healthy outcome.

“Our Therapist Helped me get a Greater Understanding of Forgiveness"

I was struggling with forgiving my spouse for an affair that happened years ago. I didn't know if I would ever get passed the trauma of what happened.

Our therapist helped me get a greater understanding of forgiveness and I feel like I received some healing. We still have work to do but I know I am in my marriage to stay.

Why Attend Relationship Rescue Academy


It’s not uncommon for couples who have been together for a long period of time to start drifting apart. The challenges that life our way can be so cumbersome and difficult to deal with that they can end up putting a serious strain on our relationships.

Financial problems, children, different priorities; these are just some of the things that can test a relationship. Unfortunately, sometimes these challenges become so hard to deal with that sometimes one or both partners stray and cheat, or start telling lies and become deceitful.

While we still love our significant others, sometimes we realize that one or both of us aren’t who we thought we were when we first started out.

If you have found that you and your partner are drifting apart, you feel like you are on completely separate paths in life, or that you are on the verge of splitting up, don’t toss in the towel just yet!

You can repair your relationship, develop a newfound appreciation for each other, and rekindle your love. How? – By attending Relationship Rescue Academy, a marriage counseling retreat.

What is Relationship Rescue Academy?

Relationship Rescue Academy is a judgment-free marriage retreat that is specifically designed to assist struggling couples by providing them with the support that they need to mend their relationships and get them back on the right track.

This marriage intensive program offers two locations – one in Orange County, California and the other in Kokomo, Indiana. Both couple’s therapy retreats offer two, three, four, and five day marriage intensive programs, which include one-on-one counseling with a professional, and experienced marriage therapist.

Lodging is also included, so you don’t have to worry about finding a place to stay; all you need to do is schedule your stay, pack your bags, and come with an open mind, a willingness to work with each other, and a desire to save your relationship.

What Happens During Marriage Intensive Couple’s Therapy?

Whether you and your spouse choose the two or three day marriage weekend retreat or you opt for the longer four or five day program, you will take part in intensive, private therapy.

You will be assigned a marriage therapist and will work with the same therapist throughout the entire duration of your stay.

Together, you and your marriage therapist will focus on your marriage and get to the root of your problems. Some of the issues that our therapists have helped couples overcome include marriage conflict, intimacy issues, financial problems, infidelity, and problems with connections.

Our therapists will walk you through a serious of guided exercises that aim to uncover what is really causing the issues in your relationship.

Your therapy sessions will be completely private and take place in an intimate setting that ensures your confidentiality. Unlike other marriage retreats, you won’t be required to partake in group activities.

The only people you will work with are one another and one of our highly trained, completely unbiased, non-judgmental, and highly responsive marriage therapists. As such, you will have the freedom to be completely open and honest with each other and really communicate the problems that matter the most to both of you.

At the Relationship Rescue Academy, we understand that every marriage is different and that no two couples experience the same problems.

Your therapy sessions will be custom tailored to the unique needs of your relationship and will focus on the particular problems you are facing and the exclusive goals that both you and your partner have.

You will be provided with the opportunity to have very deep and real discussions and be encouraged to express your concerns.

You will be offered techniques that will help you learn how to communicate more effectively with each other and better respond to one another’s needs. The goal is to help you learn how to minimize the power your issues has on your relationship so that you can work together as a true team.

How Marriage Intensive Differs from Marriage Conferences or Workshop

The biggest difference between the marriage counseling retreat offered by Relationship Rescue Academy is the private, one-on-one, and truly personalized attention that you and your partner will receive.

At marriage workshops and conferences, there are several couples working with one or more therapists at a time. Each couple is required to share and receives the same guidance and exercises, no matter what type of issues they are experiencing.

This group counseling approach is not conducive for all couples. Couples often experience fear and anxiety and aren’t willing to be really open and honest.

Furthermore, the techniques that are offered in marriage workshops and conferences aren’t always effective for every couple.

Every couple has unique needs, and as such, require different approaches to help them navigate through their hardships so that they can actually develop a healthier and stronger relationship.

When you attend a marriage counseling retreat at Relationship Rescue Academy, you will receive the undivided attention of your own marriage therapist throughout your entire stay. You won’t have to vie for the attention of your therapist.

Therapy will truly be your own private retreat that is designed specifically for you and your partner. This private approach will really help you mend your problems. Relationship Rescue Academy has successfully helped countless couples mend their marriages.

Are the Results Long-Lasting?

When you and your spouse exchanged vows, you said, “Until death do us part”. We know that you took that vow very seriously, and so do we.

The ultimate goal of the marriage retreat provided by Relationship Rescue Academy is to help you and your spouse develop a healthier and more positive relationship so that you can abide by the vows you took on your wedding day.

Our therapists will help you get back on track, rediscover why you fell in love with each other in the first place, and provide you with the tools that are needed to help your relationship withstand the test of time.  At the end of our program, you and your spouse will be stronger, more united, and ready to take on the challenges that life throws your way.
