The Intensive waitlist is long enough that signing up now will likely mean you will be contacted to schedule your intensive in 2024, possibly towards the end of 2024. If that still feels like a fit for you, please feel free to fill out the Intensive Waitlist.

A note about Intensive Therapy with me:

About Me

I work through a lens of Interpersonal Neurobiology, and I use that lens as a guiding principle in my work. I'm trained in many modalities of therapy, and might utilize tools from any of the models in which I'm trained in my sessions. I'm Somatic Experiencing (SE) practitioner, an Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist, a Relational Life therapist (RLT), and an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. I also use Sand Tray and Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT) in my work. My thoughts about how deep neural networks shift are in line with the research on memory reconsolidation.

Individual Intensives

After working for years in more long term, traditional therapy, I began working with people in a more short term, Intensive format. With this format, I found that the response I had gotten from people was overwhelmingly positive. 

 

The Intensive model is different because you focus on shifts you want to make in one or two major areas of your life. For example, some people have come in wanting to not yell at their kids anymore, some have come in wanting to learn self-compassion, wanting to set boundaries at work, and wanting to have connection with others after having spent a ton of time closed off.  

 

You will spend your first two hour session with us getting clear on what you want to shift in your Intensive, and discovering what inner subconscious structures may be holding the behavior or feeling state in place.

 

If you've been in therapy before, you might have noticed that about 20-30 minutes of your weekly therapy is usually taken up with reconnecting with your therapist and catching them up on everything that has been happening up to now. With the Intensive format, no time is spent doing that because the sessions are longer and spaced closely together. When you do the math, 20 hours of  therapy in an Intensive is equal to about 40 regular hours of therapy. That's 10 months of therapy in just a few weeks.

 

The first part of the Intensive is...well, intense. You will work in 2-3 hour sessions for 14 hours, and complete that work in about 7-15 days. Then, follow up sessions will happen for the next few weeks until you complete the 20 hour Intensive. 

 

Your Intensive sessions will likely include much of the following (each person is different, so I tailor the work to your needs):

  • Learn new skills

  • Psychoeducation on the brain

  • Trauma Recovery Work

  • Identify one or more core problematic patterns 

  • Practices that will interrupt that pattern

  • Practices that will create new healthy patterns

  • Create a plan to move forward in health

FAQ - Individual Intensives 

How many people will take part in the Intensive?

Only one, this is a space for your work and healing.

 

Will the work happen in person or via an online platform?

I offer online and in-person sessions. When it gets close to your Intensive, I will be in contact with you to talk about doing online, in-person sessions, or a mix, whatever works best for you.

Is it likely that this will change things that deeply?

That depends on many factors. Memory reconsolidation works deeply and permanently if practices are also part of the picture. If we get a good unlocking of an old, long term potentiation pattern in your brain, and you do the practices we co-create to support the shift, you will see permanent change. The people who have reported back to me after working in this way are reported permanent significant shifting. If you feel you have questions that you'd like answered that are not covered here, I'm happy to schedule a 15 minute phone call with you to discuss and answer whatever I can.

 

I don’t feel like a lot is wrong in my life, I just want to grow. Will an Intensive still be helpful?

Many people come to me not in distress but because they want to have a way of living more authentically and more whole heartedly. No matter the state you are in, this type of work is likely to help.

 

How much does it cost?

The Intensive is priced at $8,000 total with a deposit of $1,000. The deposit will count towards the total cost.

How does the payment work?

The Intensive is $8,000 total. The deposit is part of this fee. Once the Intensive begins, you will be charged the rest of the $7,000. You can pay as you go by putting a credit card into the system, or if you prefer to pay in advance, you can mail a check to Juliane Shore, 4009 Banister Lane #330, Austin TX 78704.

How can I schedule my Intensive?

All 2022 Intensives are sold out. Fill out the Intensive Waitlist form. Once you submit the form, you will be added to the Intensive Waitlist. As we approach the end of 2022, I will reach out with the new Intensive Dates.

Can I sign up for only one or two sessions instead?

No, the Intensives are 20 hours total and are a package, so the whole 20 hours is included in the price. If you are a therapist and would like to do consultation work with me, please contact me at jules@cleariskind.com. The consultations are done one to two times per month, and are scheduled for a single hour at a time.

 

Once I do an Intensive, can I start weekly therapy with you?

No, I'm not available to take on any regular clients at this time. If, when we are creating your plan to move the work forward, we determine that ongoing therapy will be a good fit for you, I will help with referrals. If you would like to, you may schedule an additional Intensive.  

 

Is there anything I can do to prepare for the Intensive?

Yes, reading the book Mindsight by Dan Siegel will help you understand Interpersonal Neurobiology. 

 

What is the cancellation policy?

If you cancel two months or more prior to your Intensive, you can receive a full refund of your deposit minus a $100 admin fee. If you need to cancel closer to your Intensive date, you will not receive a refund of your deposit but you can look at the calendar and choose a different Intensive date. A credit card must be kept on file beginning three weeks prior to your intensive if you are paying as you go. If you are paying via check, please send the check at least three weeks prior to your Intensive. If you would like to shift from an Individual Intensive to a Couples Intensive, that is also welcome.

Couple's Intensives

For a lot of couples, the pain that they are wanting to heal from and the growth they are hoping for feels too great and too urgent to slowly work through over months or even years. That is exactly why I decided to create my Intensive model. 

 

I use Relational Life Therapy and Interpersonal Neurobiology as my primary modalities, and interweave these trauma recoveries (I'm trained in many forms of trauma recovery) to work with my couples to heal the heart of the problem, so that each partner can find the most authentic version of themselves and bring that self into relationship with skill and health.

 

If you have been in therapy before, you might have noticed that about 20-30 minutes of your weekly therapy is taken up with reconnecting with your therapist and catching them up on everything that has been happening up to now. With the Intensive format, no time is spent doing that because the sessions are long and spaced spaced closely together. So, when you do the math, 20 hours of couples therapy in an Intensive is equal to about 40 regular hours of therapy. That's 10 months of therapy in just a few weeks.

 

The first part of the Intensive is...well, intense. You will work in 2-3 hour sessions for 14 hours and complete that work in about 7-15 days. Then, follow up sessions will happen for the next few weeks until you complete the 20 hour Intensive.  

 

The Intensive will likely include much of the following (each person is different, so I tailor the work to your needs):

  • Learn new skills

  • Psychoeducation on the brain

  • Witness each person’s individual work

  • Identify one or more core problematic patterns in your interactions

  • Practices that will interrupt that pattern

  • Practices that will create new healthy patterns

  • Create a plan to move forward in health

FAQ - Couple's Intensives 

How many couples will take part in the Intensive?

Only one, this is a space for your relationship.

 

Will the work happen in person or via an online platform?

I offer online and in-person sessions. When it gets close to your Intensive, I will be in contact with you to talk about doing online, in-person sessions, or a mix, whatever works best for you.

Is it likely that this will save my relationship?

I don't know. That depends on many factors and what each partner wants in regards to relational health. I can say that if you practice the skills and dive in deep, you and your partner have a great chance at gaining relational health. You may also decide to stay together as you enjoy the benefits of a deeply connected life. If you feel you have questions that you'd like answered that are not covered here, I am happy to schedule a 15 minute phone call with you to discuss and answer whatever I can.

Our relationship isn't in trouble, we just want to grow. Will an Intensive still be helpful?

While many couples come to the intensive when they are in trouble, I also work with people who are wanting more depth and more intimacy. No matter the state of your relationship, this type of work is likely to help.

The Intensive is priced at $8,000 total with a deposit of $1,000. The deposit will count towards the total cost.

Is there anything we can do to prepare for our Intensive?

Yes, reading any book by Terrence Real will help you understand more deeply what we will be aiming for in your intensive. Also, reading the book Mindsight by Dan Siegel will help you understand Interpersonal Neurobiology. Pay special attention to chapter 11, as that is a very good example of how it might feel to work with me. 

 

I also highly recommend taking the Essential Skills Bootcamp (a bootcamp I regularly teach with my friends and colleagues Rebecca Wong and Vickey Easatogether prior to participating in the Intensive. It will speed up the psychoeducation aspect of the work, as well as deepen your own insight into what's making things hard, so that we have more time to go in depth into healing and working with your individual journey.
