The Importance of Intensive Therapy

Intensive therapy is an excellent approach for any trauma program as it allows you to focus on your mental health and well-being. This method offers numerous benefits regarding treatment effectiveness, convenience, and overall results.

Intensive outpatient therapy allows individuals to receive focused and concentrated treatment while maintaining their daily routines and responsibilities. This type of therapy is particularly beneficial for those with acute or chronic mental health conditions that require intensive support and intervention.

Unlike residential or inpatient programs, outpatient therapy allows individuals to receive intensive treatment while residing in their homes and maintaining their daily routines.

Finally, intensive outpatient therapy has demonstrated promising results in symptom reduction, improved functioning, and increased overall well-being. The focused and intensive nature of treatment allows individuals to make significant strides in a relatively shorter timeframe than other forms of treatment.

Our Intensive Outpatient Therapy Program

This 12-week intensive therapy program is tailored specifically to address the needs of individuals with complex trauma. You can explore your feelings and have meaningful conversations with a therapist in a welcoming, judgment-free space. The intensive outpatient program consists of three phases:

Discovery Group

The Discovery Group is a 90-minute weekly session that helps you better understand your objectives and identity in relation to personal experiences and vice versa.

Experience Group

This 90-minute weekly session promotes mindfulness and self-awareness of relationship patterns, fostering more meaningful connections.

Individual Psychotherapy

If you prefer to receive treatment by yourself, we offer weekly 60-minute individual psychotherapy sessions that challenge you to confront fears and apply learnings in an empowering and welcoming space.

Ongoing Support for Consistency and Accountability

After completing the program, some patients may need or prefer continued support to stay on track and avoid relapses or triggers. Our trauma therapists stay in touch with you to check your progress. Should you need further treatment, you are welcome to re-enroll in the program. There’s nothing wrong with that!
