Take your life back in less time 

Feeling overwhelmed with life? Thinking about therapy but not interested in making a weekly commitment? Want to speed up the treatment process. Ever feel like you are just getting into the process and your session is over. Then an Intensive is the program for you!  


What is it?

At Fairhaven we offer an alternative to weekly therapy.  We offer intensives- which is a specialize program based specifically on YOUR needs! Our Intensives are provided by a Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) and is a more aggressive and efficient way to process overwhelming patterns and unprocessed life experiences. Intensives work to create containment, breaking the cycle of negative thinking, and developing healthy coping behaviors. Healing occurs naturally through the processing of these events in a safe and nurturing environment.

Intensives are effective with most presenting problems as it targets the foundation of its development and reconsolidates maladaptive (negative) beliefs and behaviors into more adaptive (positive) ones.  These programs have become my preferred treatment format; because my client’s experience relief so quickly and have the time to process entire events without any of life's irruptions. We all want a quick fix! Although change does take time, having a program designed around your specific goals, can build your confidence and motivate you to fight for the life you deserve. 



Intensives offers these benefits:

  • A greater level of privacy, and being able to work with experts in the field regardless of where you live.

  • Getting through treatment quickly:

    • reduces the risk of the treatment being disrupted by other life events or loss of motivation. 

    • decreases risk of destabilization, as often entire memory networks can be cleared in the same session.

    • decreases the length of pain and suffering experience by many struggling with past trauma. (Avoid years of suffering by doing the same amount of work over a week as you could do in 4-6 months of weekly treatment.)

What to Expect? 

During an intensive, you typically travel to our office in Knoxville TN, stay for several days, and get a big chunk of work done. We provide a unique combination of Trauma focused therapies (EMDR & Brainspotting), with effective skills development (DBT, CBT and Experiential Activities) in order to assist you to reconnect with your inner strengths and regain control as you transition back into daily life.  



Varies depending on length of program and specific treatment modalities utilized.  Please call for additional question and to see if this type of program might be for you!!!

Intensives may sound expensive to many. I get it, but I want you to think about it this way: a 3 day intensive, feels to many like 6 months of weekly sessions. Just paid all at once.
