Small Group Retreats

Like Personal Growth Intensives, Small Group Retreats enable participants to delve deeper into specific issues, or open exploration into aspects of one's life and experience that are less known or understood. The difference is, you will be accompanied on this journey by fellow travelers on their own parallel journeys, benefit from their witnessing and support, and learn from their experiences, perspectives, and struggles as well.

A Small Group Retreat may include up to six participants and are either one or two days. Each day starts at 9 and ends at 4, with an hour for lunch on your own. You may invite people you know to join you, or enjoy the fellowship of new friends in this endeavor. Small Group Retreats have often attracted therapists and healers seeking their own self-care and restoration in order to remain resilient and resourceful for the clients they serve. The fee for each day of a Small Group Retreat is $500. A retreat is scheduled once I have two participants confirm a specific date and register. Please contact me to indicate interest and possible dates. Retreat days are Thursdays and Fridays.

I have at my disposal a beautiful suite of offices including my own comfortable and spacious therapy room, the Sunrise Room (a large yoga/meditation/movement/activity room), and the Healing Room (a small room loaded with individual therapeutic tools and props). A combination of IFS, EMDR, Coherence Therapy, Hypnosis, Psychodrama (a superbly dynamic form of drama therapy), Therapeutic Writing and other therapeutic activities may be incorporated within this special experience. Sufficient time for independent individualized activities is provided within the retreat schedule. 

Small Group Retreats are fully prepaid by the client with the understanding that they are not offered as billable psychotherapy sessions under health insurance plans. Accommodations and meal arrangements must be made independently & are not included in the fee. Guidance to local accommodations, eateries, attractions, and special outdoors sites is gladly offered.
