Personal Retreats & Intensive Therapy

Personal Retreats & Intensive Therapy 2017-10-25T15:29:47+00:00

Therapy may happen best in the outdoors, in your home, or in a special setting that supports a deeper intention to heal and live with authenticity. Sometimes the 50-minutes-per-week standard formula for therapy is not appropriate or sufficient. At key moments of crisis or readiness to change, we sometimes need to dig deep and keep digging in a sustained way for a chunk of time. Personal growth is not an event but a process, and healing sometimes best happens through a process, like taking a journey. For these reasons I offer personalized individual retreats, intensives and pilgrimage.

Intensives and retreats are fully customized to address the goals, needs and schedule of each client, including:

  • Intensive support over several days for addressing challenges in depth and for accelerated growth and skill development
  • Inspiring locations to support growth and wellness, including wellness-based retreat centers such as the Kripalu Center; nature-based locations such as mountain lodges to leverage the medicinal power of sustained time in natural settings; for some clients this supports a desire to deepen their personal spirituality
  • A variety of issues including relationship crisis and conflict; addiction or habit cessation such as stopping smoking, drinking, pornography or media dependence, and other addictions
  • A range of supportive services including yoga and meditation instruction; walking and hiking, cross-country skiing and other activities can be woven into the counseling process

What Clients Say

Infinite thanks to you. I now know that I had been lacking the tools to manage my emotions. I had never been given them, before working with you. I finished the semester with a 3.8 in both of my master’s program.

Doug, the words ‘thank you’ don’t seem to be enough to tell you that you’ve helped me to be comfortable in my own skin and realize who I am.
