A fountain at Sante where you can work on your co-dependencyCognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is an evidenced-based therapy treatment that focuses on examining and challenging maladaptive thoughts and feelings. When individuals experience emotional neglect in some way, often all the way from early childhood and even from the most well-meaning caregivers, they develop an emotional and behavioral condition that affects their ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship with not only others but themselves as well. These individuals develop “co-dependency,” in that they maintain relationships that are often one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive.

Free To Be Me: Rescuing Yourself From Co-dependency is a 4-Day Therapy Intensive Workshop that works with individuals who are struggling in their personal and/or professional relationships. Codependence is often associating with investing and focusing one’s time and energy into everything and everyone else. However, simply defined, codependence is a lack of a relationship with oneself.

Important topics of focus during the 4-Day workshop include: education on the family system, defense mechanisms, shame, the drama triangle, boundaries, power and powerlessness, connection, breaking free from the drama triangle, self-care and learning how to free yourself from codependent behavior and dysfunctional relationship patterns.

The cost of the Intensive includes two meals a day, two snack breaks, a session of Healing Clay Therapy, a session of Guided Meditation and Mindfulness, a session of Equine Therapy with rescued animals, group therapy sessions and all therapeutic materials utilized in the Intensive. Insurance is not accepted, but a superbill can be given (on request) at the end of the Intensive for participants to file on their own.
