Intensives

“It may be when we no longer know what we have to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.” – Wendell Berry

I offer Individual, Couples, and Family intensive experiences that work to provide a more focused approach to challenging issues. These intensives are custom built around your specific needs. Currently I offer these in Nashville, TN. 

Intensives help jumpstart the healing process and more quickly addresses root problems in relationships and individuals lives. I utilize a multi-faceted approach to intensives.

First and foremost, face-to-face counseling is the foundation for the program. The role-playing and real-life communication that happen are the best data points for what needs to be addressed in relationships.

Secondly, I incorporate experiential exercises and reflective homework to help rebuild trust, faith, and love.

Lastly, and less tangibly, I educate and teach about human behavior, attachment needs, and the psychological/spiritual makeup of humans. 

I build intensives based around the specific needs of the individual or couple, but always attempt to apply a 1:1 ratio of direct to indirect therapeutic engagement. Often what gets stirred up in therapy needs an appropriate amount of time to “settle” and not feel overwhelming. I utilize homework, and reflective exercises to aid in the integration process of what happens during our time together.
