Dr. Lin is currently running two new types of intensive therapy options for Reno couples. The first is what she calls her mini-intensive or deep dive three-hour sessions and the second is her full couple’s relationship intensive sessions, which are held over one or two days and include 6 hours per day of therapy.

The expansion of the California-based therapist’s services into the Reno area coincides with the latest figures from the CDC, which reflect that almost 50% of marriages in the United States currently end in either divorce or separation. This sobering statistic is also accompanied by the fact that, according to Pew Research, the proportion of never-married Americans has now risen to 35%.
With more Americans than ever struggling to maintain a lasting relationship with either a partner or a spouse, Dr. Lin believes that couples therapy is essential for couples that want to create ongoing open and honest communication, intimacy, trust and passion in their relationship.
While she recommends couples therapy as a regular part of healthy relationship maintenance, she also knows that there are moments in which a couple has encountered a grave problem or a moment of upheaval which demands prompt and deep attention.
As such, for couples in these circumstances, or for couples who have lost their spark, or are noticeably struggling with intimacy, vulnerability and trust, Dr. Lin at Relationship Explorations recommends her intensive therapy retreats.
One of the strategies Dr. Lin uses in her intensive sessions is discernment counseling, which is a new counseling methodology that is particularly suitable for couples in which one member is ambivalent about saving the relationship and feels skeptical about the value of counseling, but the other is invested.

Dr. Lin believes that through her intensive sessions she can help struggling couples to identify what the problems in their relationship really are, to give each partner the opportunity to be heard and understood, both individually and in dialogue with the other, and to develop a personalized relationship plan to take advantage of the gains made in the sessions.
Dr. Lin Jovanovic is the lead psychologist at Relationship Explorations. She holds a PhD in Medical Psychology and has been a California-state licensed psychologist since 1995.
A spokesperson for her clinic said, “Jumpstart the change in your relationship in just 3-6 hours instead of 3-6 months. An intensive gives you time to work on issues, experience the heated emotions, and then practice the skills needed to reconnect. That real-time practice is priceless and builds the muscle you need to improve your relationship every day.”
