“NOT EVERYTHING THAT IS FACED CAN BE CHANGED, BUT NOTHING CAN BE CHANGED UNTIL IT IS FACED.”

– James Baldwin

Couples THERAPY

Single Session

Sessions are 50 minutes 

"Find a partner who is ready to build with you. It is not about finding perfection in another person, it is about realizing when you come across an undeniable connection that nourishes your being and matches the type of support you are looking for. Getting lost in the idea of perfection is a hindrance. Being with someone who is committed to going through the ups and downs of life together is truly priceless.

When two people embrace their imperfections and commit to growing into better versions of themselves, it will naturally enhance the happiness they share in the relationship." - Yung Pueblo

GROUP THERAPY

This is not a processing, accountability, coaching, support, or talk therapy group. Although this happens, this group is experiential in nature. Experiential therapy is where our emotional state is not just talked about but put into motion. You will experience your emotions and be able to feel, challenge, move through, and regulate them in the safety and support of group.

"I argue that the most powerful thing you can do to add healthy years is to curate your immediate social network. In general, you want friends with whom you can have a meaningful conversation. You can call them on a bad day and they will care. Your group of friends are better than any drug or anti-aging supplement, and will do more for you than just about anything." - Dan Beuttner

Workshops

honolulu hawaii beach and downtown
A Workshop is a 3-5 day intensive experience where you completely unplug and leave your world behind to fully step into your healing and growth. Each day includes 6-8 hours of intensive group therapy, amazing excursions to help process and integrate, and gourmet food to fuel your healing.

We work with you to pinpoint and resolve what is preventing you from living the life you want, then use a wide range of modalities targeted specifically to you to help you push through and overcome your issues. Whether it is deep trauma, addiction, or relationship conflicts, we are experts at helping you find and resolve what is holding you back.

We specialize in Experiential Modalities that include:
- Psychodrama
- Somatic movement
- Music
- Art
- Nature
- Play

People often get more out of a workshop than a year or more of therapy. While our clients say the experience is difficult to put into words, they often describe it as life-changing. If you feel like regular talk therapy is either ineffective or too slow and want to break out of the rut, this is what you’re looking for. If you are holding unresolved trauma that is impacting your life and relationships, this is the fastest, most effective way to resolve it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between your group therapy and intensive workshops?

Group therapy typically meets weekly or bi-weekly for ongoing support and skill-building in a shared setting. Intensive workshops are structured around a specific theme and occur over a condensed period (e.g., a weekend), allowing for rapid, focused work and greater depth in a short time.

I'm nervous about starting therapy. What can I expect in the first session?

The duration depends on your individual goals and pace of progress. Some clients require just a few sessions to target a specific area, while others choose ongoing coaching for continued growth. It's essential to discuss what feels right for you at the outset and reassess periodically with your coach.

Which therapy format is right for me?

The best fit depends on your unique goals and circumstances. Individual therapy offers focused one-on-one exploration, while group therapy provides peer support and shared experiences. Couples therapy helps improve relationship dynamics, and intensive workshops facilitate faster-paced change. Consider scheduling a consultation to discuss which option best suits your needs.

How do I know if I'm ready for Therapy?

If you have a strong desire for change, are willing to be introspective, and are ready to take steps towards your goals, therapy can be incredibly beneficial. You don't need to have all the answers; a skilled therapist will help you unlock them.
