Dig Deep. Expand Your Capacity as a Healer

The therapeutic relationship is key to the work we do. And focusing on that is central to this training retreat. It includes opportunities—through learning, clinical video cases and dyad work—to enhance your therapeutic presence and strengthen your capacity for relating to clients. Equally important is the exploration of powerful new ways to use the therapeutic relationship to help clients achieve healing and transformation. They include:

  • new conceptual maps that help you navigate Triangle of Trauma dynamics
  • understanding response patterns—our own and our clients'—that can set the triangle dynamic in motion
  • practical strategies that help facilitate repair and resolution
  • using EMDR to build and strengthen new adaptive patterns of response in a client

This Retreat is a Journey of Discovery—Both Personal and Professional

We’ll explore together what it's like to work with some of the most challenging clients and discover how they can also be the most rewarding. We’ll work on ourselves so we can bring our highest Self to our work every day. When we are consistently present as our best selves in the moment with our clients, we are most able to help them navigate the uncharted emotional territory between themselves and others. 

Take a Break. Feed Your Soul.

Those of us who work with challenging cases have a special responsibility to rest, nurture and strengthen our bodies as well as to feed our souls. It’s not always easy to do in the midst of daily life. That’s why I’m hosting this EMDR Masterclass Training at Red Mountain Resort in Utah. It’s a place that I have found to be deeply restful and healing. The Red Rock Canyons are ancient and awe-inspiring. The resort accommodations, food and spa are first-class. The staff is both attentive and responsive. I believe you will walk away from these five days with your fellow Master Therapists energized and renewed. I hope you will join me and your peers at Red Mountain Resort.

Here’s what your colleague has to say:

Attending a Master Retreat as a participant was a professional game changer for me. The opportunity to grow, both in my clinical skills as well as garnering a deeper understanding of myself as a therapist, is priceless. The physical space of the resort and all of its amenities created the perfect environment for learning and relaxing all in one place! The "icing on the cake" were the professional connections I made during this time with other like minded clinicians, some of whom I am still connected with today! This is an investment in yourself and your career that is 100% worth it.
