Strong relationships are important to a happy and fulfilling life. For those who struggle with the effects of emotional trauma, addiction, mood disorders, or behavioral disorders, connecting with others and building healthy relationships can be difficult. We offer workshops that can help you strengthen your marriage, your family relationships, and your friendships by helping you to uncover and heal hidden emotional pain, and learn new skills for communicating and relating with others.
This workshop serves to help couples explore their relational difficulties in a safe environment, while learning how to work together to heal their relationship. In a small group of couples, participants practice how to address painful issues utilizing boundaries and improved communication, while building on existing strengths within the relationship.
The Family workshop is designed to assist family members in establishing a supportive and healthy recovery environment by encouraging them to be authentic, communicate productively, utilize boundaries, and function in a healthy fashion. During this workshop, family members learn how codependent behaviors, trauma, mood disorders, and addictions can impact a family system.
Love Addiction / Love Avoidance
Love addicts assign too much value, time, and attention to another person while neglecting to care for or value themselves. Love addicts can be addicted to anyone: lover, spouse, friend, parent, or child. It is a painful, obsessive, and addictive process that negatively impacts not only the love addict but also the individuals in their lives and relationships. In this workshop, the focus is on enhancing self-love and self-care, while instilling a tolerance for feeling.
Healing Intimate Treason: For Partners of Sex Addiction
This workshop was developed in collaboration with Claudia Black, Ph.D., Senior Fellow, and author of Deceived: Facing Sexual Betrayal, Lies, and Secrets and Intimate Treason. Working from a clinical model based on addiction and trauma, partners impacted by the destruction of sexual compulsion have the opportunity to begin healing from intimate betrayal.
Discovery to Recovery: For Couples Healing From Sex Addiction
The Discovery to Recovery intensive series offers a safe and therapeutically supported process designed to help couples whose relationships have been shattered by sex addiction to begin to heal and recover. This series is comprised of three carefully planned healing intensives to help guide the couple from the early stages of discovery and disclosure to a life of recovery and renewed hope whether together or separate, as the couple decides. Couples can attend whichever intensive best fits their needs, or complete all three in succession.
