Why a therapy intensive?
If you’re traveling far, you take a flight. An intensive is much like hopping on a jet. We cover a lot of ground, quickly.
Intensives offer time for a “deep dive” into treatment, away from interruptions, distractions, and the stop/start of classic outpatient therapy. There’s a concentration effect when you clear the time for change.
Hear Why Custom Intensives Work
From Ryan Russ, Co-Founder and Therapist
What to expect during your Intensive
Each intensive is customized to your specific needs. We recommend 3 days at a minimum for new clients and 1 to 2 days for repeat clients. We also offer multiple half-day “mini-intensives” for our local clients. Full days are 8 hours of therapy, and half-days are 4 hours.
Talk therapy is insufficient, words fall short. Effective treatment must go deeper. And that is precisely what an intensive does. Your whole experience will feel customized. Your clinician will focus only on you during the duration of your stay.
We utilize not only our therapy rooms but also our Yoga/Meditation room, as well as settings in nature for this intensive. Expect to utilize EMDR, Brainspotting, art therapy, homework assignments, guided imagery, and various experiential therapy interventions during your stay.
Trauma Treatment Intensive
Have you had an overwhelming experience that still affects you today? Do you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, or GI problems? Do you experience repeated nightmares or trouble sleeping? Do small things trigger a bad memory and make you panic, depressed, or afraid?
Or, what if you’ve never had a classic traumatic experience but still struggle with feelings that something just isn’t right?
Instead of asking, “what’s wrong with me?” we want to ask “what happened to me?” That shift begins to open many doors to healing and empowerment.
We specialize in developmental trauma (attachment wounds), sexual trauma/abuse, betrayal trauma, PTSD, and treating trauma caused by living with a person with an addiction or Narcissistic Personality Disorder. We use Brainspotting, EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, Art Therapy, and other experiential modalities to heal. Since treating trauma is multi-layered, an intensive can springboard a client’s healing much faster than classic outpatient therapy.
Types of Intensives
While all our intensives are customized to you, we frequently see our clients come in for a handful of particular types of intensives. The most popular are:
