Unresolved pain is toxic to one’s soul and can manifest into self-destructive behaviors such as eating disorders, alcoholism, broken relationships with loved ones, intimacy issues, isolation, anger, and other disruptions.

In the Intensive Week program, you will begin to unearth the roots of pain and start a “detoxification” of all the unresolved emotional, chemical, physical, and spiritual manifestations that bind your soul. Armed with and the knowledge of how to fill your soul with self-love, worth, and trust, one can begin to live life free from the bonds of pain.


General Overview:

  • Those who are currently working with a therapist on but need more time than an hour session to break through to their core.
  • Those who need treatment but cannot commit to 42 days yet still want to take the beginning steps toward a new outlook and understanding to support the road to recovery.
  • Those who have been to treatment and are in recovery and have a feeling of fear of relapse or need to re-center oneself. 

If you are open to the process and willing to do the work and let go of some control for a week and if you want healing, our Intensive Programs are for you!
