Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling is instrumental to identifying personal values, cultures, barriers, strengths and coping mechanisms that promote or hinder healing and recovery. 


Our therapists are committed to understanding the individual uniqueness of each client through the process of individual therapy. That's why our therapists use assessments and screening tools  to aid in diagnosis and  treatment planning.

Craving/Urges/Trigger Reduction INTENSIVES

Our Therapists offer DeTUR Protocol for reduction of Cravings/Urges/ and or Triggers This therapy involves Bilateral Stimulation (BLS) to reduce intensity of identified triggers. Sessions are offered in 3 day intensives and drastically reduce relapse after treatment episodes. These intensives are offered on Tues-Thurs from 9am-1pm. SCHEDULE IN ADVANCE FOR POST RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT SUPPORT!!!

EMDR/Trauma Counseling

Traumatic events are unique to each of us. Whether you have diagnosed with PTSD, or have secondary, or tertiary traumatic experiences, our therapists are trained in EMDR to help you minimize or resolve re-occurring trauma symptoms, often developed for coping with everyday stressors/fear, loss, insomnia, or depression.


EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is often used for trauma counseling in the treatment of anxiety. It is well researched and established therapy that includes images, mindfulness, and cognitive techniques. It involves focus on a traumatic (or disturbing) memory while doing bilateral eye movements and listening to alternating tones or feeling alternating vibrations in your hands.


This process allows the brain to resolve emotional trauma and gain insight that is more effective than traditional talk therapy. EMDR therapy can often be resolved in less than 6 sessions in addition to an intake, history and preparation session. However for multiple traumas or long history of past abuse, trauma or neglect, EMDR can take considerably longer to resolve the presenting issues. 

Cravings, Urges, and Trigger REDUCTION

This therapy is offered in a 3 day intensive for patients recently discharged from residential or IOP treatment. The therapy is offered over in 3 day increments of 4 hour intensive BLS using the DeTUR model of reducing cravings, urges, and triggers. Intensives are offered Tues.-Thursday mornings from 9:00am-1:00pm each day. Treatment is specific to the individuals cravings, urges, and triggers and increases success in sobriety.
