Intensive Trauma-Focused Therapy

Life’s challenges can be overwhelming. We all go through them, and we all need help from time to time. During our private therapy sessions you will be guided to overcome these challenges and move on to living a happier and fuller life.

Typical hour-per-week therapy can take months or years to get results. In intensive therapy, you’ll spend full consecutive days with one of our compassionate therapists who is skilled in helping people in your situation. You will be the therapist’s only client for the days you’ve reserved. With our proven-successful treatment approach, most of our clients are able to achieve true healing in a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
