In this life changing and luxurious Women's Therapy and Wellness Retreat, women will experience a balance of therapy and healing, serenity and wellness, as well as a deeper connection to self, others, and nature. We will have the opportunity to dive deeper into intergenerational wounding and begin to address and heal these trauma through somatic, expressive, and narrative therapy interventions.
My vision for all my retreats is to holistically treat our body, mind, and soul. To create an environment where every participant experiences the comfort of a vacation, while receiving healing, being nourished through delicious food, and nurtured by nature.
