Therapeutic Intensives

Therapeutic Intensive Experiences are currently only being offered by Dana; she has developed these intensives to create an opportunity for concentrated and streamlined counselling.  Each intensive will provide exclusive access to Dana and will create an environment where the therapeutic work can deepen and progress in a significantly shorter period of time than counselling can typically provide.  You will acquire new skills to create space and movement for stagnant or gridlocked issues.  Dana will provide participants with tools and resources to use in session and at home.  As well, follow up and integration sessions are recommended to ensure the growth and the change experienced is sustainable and long lasting.

Intensives will be customized for the participating individuals and their unique needs, lifestyles, and desired outcomes.  Dana will conduct a thorough assessment process to ensure suitability for the therapeutic work being undertaken, as well as to begin creating a bespoke program that will best meet the needs and goals of the participants. All intensives will be informed by Somatic Experiencing, the Gottman Method, Virtues based educationArt Therapy, and Psychotherapeutic Yoga when suitable.

 

Typically, Intensives are condensed into 15 hours however, this can extended upon request should this be best for the participants.

Family 

Ideally, family intensives will involve all family members (potentially even from blended to extended).  Depending on the make up of the family and the participating members, Dana will meet with members both together and separately.  Families of every age, shape, and form are welcome and encouraged to participate in an intensive to create more unity, transparency, effective communication, connection and resolution to stagnant and/or gridlocked issues.

Family members will:

  • practice listening to understand rather than respond

  • experience being heard by participating family members

  • learn how to communicate effectively and increase connection

  • begin to undo the language and communication habits that create hurt, disconnection, and misunderstandings

  • practice effective conflict resolution that lead to increased connection and unity

  • learn to consult as a family unit when making decisions or problem solving

  • increased awareness of individual and collective regulation/dysregulation and how to respond in a healthy manner

  • increase connection while inviting playfulness, curiosity, joy and love  ...... and much more!
