Our intensive weekends cultivate connection and build resolution. Away from daily life, in a careful process, families and couples efficiently create solutions, become unstuck and gain clarity about the future.

Immersives are two to four day intensive therapeutic sessions that typically take place in a retreat setting, though they can be offered within the home. Julia offers therapeutic immersives both individually and in collaboration with other therapists.


Bespoke to each family, immersives typically include individual and group times with the therapists, with both open ended therapy and guided experiences.  Some families choose to include music, photos, time for reminiscing, yoga, meditation or playfulness, though some families prefer a more traditional therapeutic approach. 

You may be interested in an immersive if you are a couple who travel for work frequently are not able to attend weekly therapy together.


You may be interested in an immersive if you feel an issue in your life needs a deep dive and you prefer the efficiency of a 2-4 day immersive.
