Counseling Intensives

Intensives

Are the ever increasing demands on your time, energy, and devotion leaving you feeling anxious, depressed,  or burnt out? You’re not alone. In the midst of this fast-paced world, self-reflection, strategic thinking, and personal growth are often pushed aside so we can tend to the needs of others and the never-ending to-do list.

But we were not meant to run full steam ahead. Our minds, bodies, and spirits have real limitations. When we continue to push ourselves beyond those limits, we become weary and disheartened. Left unaddressed, our suffering can  extend beyond ourselves into our relationships, and our work. The tension stresses  our physical health, mental health, spiritual health, finances and relationships, all demanding time to reconcile our limitations with those all the demands on our time, energy, and resources.

Whether your struggles are rooted in present challenges or past trauma, there is hope! Our five-day intensives are an intentional time away from your daily responsibilities designed to accomplish what might take months in traditional weekly counseling. Our focused, goal-driven counseling addresses the things that are wearing you down and holding you back, bringing you through substantial progress in your journey towards hope and healing.
