“I have tried everything I know to do, and nothing has worked. I need something different.”
“I don’t want to TALK about this issue anymore. I just want to get better.”
“I need something to change. I can’t live like this anymore.”
“I’ve gone to all the doctors & specialists. They told me to see a therapist.”
These are just a few common responses I hear from clients when I ask them why they decided to reach out for help. There is a growing demand for a condensed and focused way to work through trauma and healing. I’m hoping that by offering a Trauma Therapy Intensive, clients will get the healing they need and the help they deserve.

Why Choose a Therapy Intensive?
CONVENIENCE: Due to schedules or location, the traditional once-a-week therapy model may not be the best fit for your specific needs and your healing process. A trauma therapy intensive can be a great “next-step” after gaining awareness and new skills with a treatment program.
ACCESS: In-treatment programs can be beneficial when the safety of a monitored environment and additional skills for coping are needed. However, clients often don’t have access to brain-based therapies like Brainspotting, EMDR and Neurofeedback that process deep rooted trauma, that our struggles are often connected with.
DIFFERENT APPROACH: Trauma Therapy Intensives are in-depth therapy sessions designed to:
- Assist clients in jump-starting the process of trauma work
- Focus on trauma specific issues as a support to your individual therapy process
- Offer client’s another way to work through trauma than traditional weekly talk-therapy.
In traditional therapy, clients may find themselves discussing other matters that come up along the way, rather than a specific reason they originally began therapy. Clients may feel there is a lack of progress or thinking that they simply can’t be helped. The problem isn’t the client. It’s just a matter of finding the approach that is best suited to how you process and heal. This different way of engaging in therapy can help clients get to the root issues and begin healing.
Meeting a Need
As a response to this need, Melanie Reese offers individual Trauma Therapy Intensives tailored to fit your personal goals for therapy. She has created a 4-day, therapy intensive to serve the needs of those who wish to explore therapy in a different way.
What is a Trauma Therapy Intensive?
Intensives are targeted to meet your specific area of need for healing. The focus is on regulating the clients nervous system (where trauma is stored) and processing trauma with brain-based, evidence-based modalities. Treatment plans are curated to the clients specific needs and therapeutic goals.
We often suggest that clients participate in a Neuro Feedback Intensive in tandem with the Trauma Therapy Intensive. This is a great way to help the nervous system process trauma and the work done with Brainspotting. It is another brain-body based therapy that helps “rewire” old patterns.
CREATING A CARE TEAM
I have a network of Practitioners that allow me to provide the best resources for your specific needs. I often create a care team as the client’s need indicates.
I have built trusting relationships with these knowledgable practitioners over the years and my clients have loved working with them. We utilize the following modalities when creating your tailored treatment plan:
- Neuro Feedback*
- Trauma Informed Yoga and Body Movement
- Trauma Informed Bodywork and/or Massage*
- Breathe Work
- Nutritional Therapy*
- And more!
*Services are contracted separately and not included in the Intensive Package. Pricing is subject to the practitioners current fee and availability.
This work can be beneficial to those hoping to begin the healing process of:
- Developmental or Relational Trauma: Chronic Stress, medical trauma, chronic illness, poverty, discrimination and violence
- Neglect & Abuse: Physical, emotional, sexual or spiritual abuse
- Shock Trauma: Accidents, assaults or natural disasters
- Intergenerational Trauma: Trauma passed down through our families dynamics and genes (epigenetic).
Symptoms of trauma can be expressed in several ways, including:
- Substance Use
- Disordered Eating
- Impaired Relationships with Others
- Other Areas of Struggle
