Are You Ready For Change? Let's Do IT!
The couples I work with find themselves stuck in a pattern of relating that is not working for them. I work with them deeply to help them understand the root cause of their pain so they can learn new ways to be close and connected.
Intensives: The Fast Track to Growth
I have found the quickest way for a couple to make progress on their goals is to do an intensive day with me, rather than 50 minute sessions weekly for months. You will be amazed what can be accomplished in a short amount of time.
What To Expect
The General Format I Follow Is:
Hours 1-2: We do a deep dive into each partner’s family of origin, and how this impacts current styles of relating.
Hours 3-4: We get painstakingly specific into your current interactions with your partner, identifying how the learned style of relating is showing up in present day.
Hours 5-6: We will get into concrete interventions and tools to use after you leave the intensive with a clear direction on your next steps for lasting change.
Story Groups are perfect for people looking to understand how their family of origin is impacting their current style of relating, and functioning outside of traditional therapy. There is also the added benefit of being more affordable while adding in healthy, close, safe relationships with others if feeling isolated.
What does that look like exactly?
You will be given a writing assignment to write a story of harm that took place somewhere between the ages of 4-18 and read it aloud to the group. As the facilitator, I will lead you to deep understanding, and open the neural pathways to reorganize as the group offers care and kindness. It is truly a life altering experience to have others speak into your story with compassion. We will make direct correlations to how this is impacting your current struggles. It is not something we can do on our own, or with just an individual therapist. It has been my experience that one story group is the equivalent to a year of individual therapy.
Most importantly, participants will walk away knowing they are not alone. Healing is possible. Reach out to Elle to get on the list for the next story group offering!
Are you experiencing:
Spiritual or Emotional Abuse
People Pleasing or Codependency
Family of Origin Trauma
Body Image/Eating Issues
I work with people intensively for three hours to understand how their family of origin impacts their current day style of relating leading to mental health symptoms and we make a plan to figure out the next right step towards wellness. Once we have done an intensive we can decide if 50 minute follow up sessions are needed. Send an email to inquire about openings!
