Intensives

Intensive sessions are characterized by multiple hours of therapy within a short period. There are various reasons you might opt for this approach. Some individuals experience such intense emotional distress that a standard therapy schedule (one hour per week) is insufficient. For others, challenges like geography, childcare, or other commitments make weekly therapy sessions impractical. Additionally, some people are overwhelmed by their pain and feel they can no longer endure it. I am proud to offer intensive sessions to address these needs and reduce the barriers to effective therapy.

Here's how it works

I recommend starting with at least a phone consultation and possibly the first session as usual. The goal is to break down barriers and meet your needs, so if we need to jump into an intensive format without traditional sessions, let's discuss it. The same therapeutic interventions will be used as in traditional sessions (see home page), just at a different pace. We'll book a chunk of time and alternate between traditional talk therapy, integrating horses into the therapy (optional), and taking breaks. This approach combines the benefits of traditional psychotherapy with the power of nature and these majestic animals in a short timeframe.

The rate is $195 per 60 minutes.

Examples (we can plan timing and focus when we discuss over the phone/in first session):

 

For Individual Therapy: We can book a full day (9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00) or a half day. We will spend time in the office with talk therapy and move to the paddock or arena when inspired, using horses and nature to enhance healing. We'll transition between indoors and outdoors, so dress for the weather.

For Couple Sessions: We can book a full day or a weekend (Friday evening 5:00-7:00, Saturday and/or Sunday 10:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00). We'll spend time in the office exploring your interactions and, if you agree, integrate horses for experiential learning about yourselves and your relationship. We'll move between the office and the arena, taking breaks as needed. You'll have time to practice new ways of relating. Dress for the weather.

 

For Family Sessions: Depending on the age and attention span of the children (and adults), we can book a couple of hours, a half day, or a full day. We'll start in the office setting expectations and goals, then move in and out of the office for outdoor horse work, possibly breaking into different dyads or groups at times. Dress for the weather.

 

Group Interventions: Consider signing up for a group intervention. These are less personal but very intensive, typically running for multiple hours over a weekend. The focus is more on psychoeducation, which can help jumpstart change. Rates and schedule for groups varies.

If you're interested in discussing this option, please contact me. I'll be happy to explore the possibilities with you.

 

Rates will be prorated, with no charge for lunch/breaks.
