Intensives for targeted trauma resolution or enhanced creativity/performance

Sometimes a 50-minute session is not enough. It seems like just as soon as you start going deep into what brought you in for therapy, you have to stop and wait until your next session.


Perhaps you find that you just cannot commit to weekly sessions because of scheduling conflicts, and, well, life, and you prefer to have several accelerated, longer sessions get to the root and heal, so you can move on with your life.  

The Heal-in Journey offers 2.5, 4, and 5-hour intensives to provide extended time without interruption, so you can achieve more out of your sessions. 


The Heal-in Journey is a creative intensive process designed for trauma resolution and for building creativity and/or performance

You are not just sitting on a couch working through your trauma. You learn to connect with your whole self - body, spirit, and soul through movement, music, meditation, sound, and other creative modalities.  

The Heal-in Journey currently offers individual therapy, but keep an eye out for groups in the near future.
