Dedicated to comfort and care

It is important for us to make our space a place of refuge as you heal. Click below to see our meditation space complete with a hanging daybed to provide comfort and gentle movement if desired as you do the hard work of healing. We have room to move and connect with your body through trauma informed yoga, Qi-gong, and more. This and other techniques will help you ground yourself as we work together. A relaxed muscle body is the result of healing, and we hope our space is a sanctuary that makes you feel cared for along the way.

"Besides trauma, there is something else human beings routinely pass on from person to person and from generation to generation: resilience. Resilience is built into the very cells of our bodies. It is as much a part of us as our ability to heal. Like trauma, resilience can ripple outward, changing the lives of people, families, neighborhoods, and communities in positive ways.”
- Resmaa Menakem (My Grandmother's Hands)

therapy vs coaching

What's right for you?

We are excited to offer both therapy and coaching options for our clients. Clients may even wish to work with both disciplines at the same time. Psychotherapists have advanced training required to treat mental health diagnoses while coaches do not. Coaching tends to be more focused on understanding the now and helping you achieve future goals. Psychotherapy focuses more on healing from the past with a present and future orientation. Therapists can only practice within states where they are licensed and coaches are able to provide services throughout the US and internationally.

EMDR Intensive Therapy

Some of us don’t have the time or space in our life and schedule for ongoing weekly sessions. Some of us wish to heal, but spanning in over a long period of time feels daunting or difficult when holding painful memories that we wish didn’t get in the way of our daily life. Decide on the fit that feels best, and we will customize a plan to meet your needs. It could range from 2 hours a week to 3 full days in a row. Imagine the work that can be accomplished and felt in 3 days of intentional healing!

As humans, we have all experienced traumas. These can impact our daily lives in ways we are not even consciously aware of.

Did you know that the eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association? This type of therapy has be shown effective for ‘reprocessing’ traumatic events that happened in the past, yet continue to cause negative emotions and subsequent actions today.

When a person gets traumatized, the memory of the experience seems to get locked in the nervous system with frozen pictures, sounds, thoughts, and feelings. With EMDR we facilitate the unlocking of the nervous system to allow the brain to process the experience. It is important to note that it is your own brain that will be doing the healing and that you are the one in control.

EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, also known as EMDR, is a therapeutic technique used by counselors and therapists. All humans on this planet experience trauma, and we hold the effects of it in our nervous system. We can think of reprocessing like cleaning your house. It starts off as a big unorganized mess that feels overwhelming and exhausting. Eventually though, things get put into their right place and it starts to look tidier and feel more manageable. Options for an intensive format for therapy can range from hours over the course of weeks to 3 days at a time dependent on your needs. “Cleaning your house” at a faster rate is more efficient and can lessen the duration of therapy as well as overall distress in a more timely manner.

EMDR for Babies

“Trauma held in implicit or pre verbal memory has no way to express itself in narrative form. Instead it is held in the body’s felt sense.” – Allan Schore. Preverbal trauma for infants can be a result of a variety of reasons including: a difficult birth, preterm birth, early hospitalizations, early medical procedures, illness in infant or mother, separations from primary caregiver, chaotic stressful environment for birth mom during the pregnancy, or early abuse and neglect (2018 Debra Wesselmann, Cathy Schweitzer, & Stefanie Armstrong). Early trauma eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, ET-EMDR, encompasses both baby and parents/caregivers in the healing process.

Men’s Wilderness Coaching

Wilderness based coaching will involve an intentional change of environment. It will immerse participants in the natural environment as part of the coaching process to evoke introspection and facilitate change. Hiking in nature reduces negative patterns of thinking and increases neuroplasticity. Learning about and facing challenges in nature is a beautiful environment in which to grow and gain confidence.

about us

Our Providers

Welcome! At intentional healing COUNSELING & COACHING, we are dedicated to bear witness as you courageously take steps to feel more comfortable in your body, mind, & soul. We feel it imperative to understand that we as humans have all experienced hard things from the past and present that remain stuck in our bodies and disrupt our daily lives.

We feel it our privilege to have learned tools and techniques like mindfulness-based stress reduction to provide psycho education to clients with the benefits of learning to create pause and come to the present moment without judgment, to know that there is movement and that they are strong. Teaching clients to stop and notice how they feel in their bodies and minds as they move through their days. Noticing what feels within and against their value system, their inner wisdom. To learn skills to be able to breathe in and through pain. To use imagery to self soothe and create new neural networks that change how we think and feel.

"I believe we all have the power to find a stronger, more resilient version of ourselves. Mandy Hale talks about finding herself again: 'Not the same version of me that I was looking for, but a stronger version. A wiser version. A woman who knew that she was enough, just as she was. A woman who had been tried in the fire but instead of being burned by it, came out gold.' We are all enough, just as we are. Sometimes we just need to mine our inner resources to discover that we've been gold all along."

Megan Shane

There comes a time when you have to let everything fall apart. When you have to stop fighting for a life you've outgrown and trust that you will be okay, even if you can't see how right now. For a while everything may feel messy and hard, and you may feel scared and lost. Embrace the fear. Embrace the uncertainty. Embrace the loss. The dark tunnel of change leads to the light of possibility, but first you have to go through it.
