All therapeutic retreats for individuals take place in a lakeside home on the wooded shores of Lake Damariscotta, Maine. The location is discrete, private, and aesthetically healing.
The quiet lakeside home will be your living and working space for the duration of the retreat. Meal options include grocery delivery for home cooking, catering, and/or meals out in town.
Therapeutic Retreats for Individuals
A personal therapeutic retreat utilizing my Compassionate Authenticity model of therapeutic change can be an excellent fit for individuals living fast-paced, high profile life styles.
The focus of my work with all clients is the development of the authentic self and of the capacity to maintain authenticity in relationship to others, rather than shrinking, altering or adapting the self to be who we perceive others need us to be. This can be a particularly challenging growth edge for people who live much of their lives in the public eye, where external expectations are clear and present, and judgments from others are vocal and free flowing. Even though a public life feels built upon approval from others, I believe that authenticity nurtures the confidence, vision and vitality required to live fully and healthfully, and the energy required to live publicly. By releasing limiting expectations and reconnecting with and integrating hidden parts of your authentic self, we can generate joy, creativity, and momentum on your path.
You can lead, create, perform and manifest most effectively as your fully empowered self.
Therapeutic Retreats for Couples
For couples interested in efficiently breaking old patterns and creating positive change in their relationship, I offer two-day therapeutic retreats. Each retreat is private, for one couple at a time, and is personalized to meet the couple’s needs and goals.
Typically I spend most of the time with both partners together as a couple, as well as some time with each partner, individually, to clarify your experiences, perspectives and desires.
A couples retreat includes:
* Understanding your history
* Assessment of the stuck places
* Clear iteration of each partner’s relational hopes and dreams
* Developing differentiation so each individual can be full in the partnership
* Working through old pain in new ways
* Interventions to break patterns and set a new course
* Reawakening intimacy, optimism, and playfulness
* Future planning to support the new positive changes
Therapeutic Retreats for Groups
Groups of 4-8 people can reserve a retreat weekend to focus on any of my available workshop themes, such as developing authenticity, unblocking creativity, or awakening sensuality. Groups can also choose to focus on: authentic motherhood, developing self-compassion, differentiating from external expectations, finding your voice in relationship, or finding your professional desire. Topics can also be created to cater specifically to your group’s interests and needs.
Group retreats are appropriate for groups of friends, family members or co-workers interested in exploring a certain topic, supporting each other, and strengthening their group cohesion while making individual leaps and bounds in personal development.
