"Dear Janelle, here's an update since my four day intensive. I don't feel or think I'm stupid anymore, that alone equals a miracle. I don't feel as stressed or as tired since I've gotten home, nor do I feel as anxious. Janelle, that was one of the most painful, intensive liberating weeks of my entire life. I'm not sure you knew, but my birthday was on the first day that we met. I did nothing special that day to celebrate; little did I realize what was in store for me on Thursday. The Lord gave me a birthday tea party through you. My little girl never had any kind of party her whole life, so it was very special to the little girl within - and very healing. That night in my hotel room I woke up in the middle of the night and started weeping because I realized that many little girls have tea parties, but I had now had one with Jesus as a special guest. There are still memories coming up from my childhood and teenage years and I'm processing them. The freer I get the more I can hear Him speaking to me. I have noticed that I walk upright and don't look down when I walk now; it was probably the shame I carried that made me look down all the time. You gave me tools and insights that are new to me and God is continuing to give me more understanding. It was no coincidence that we met! Very God ordained! THANKS AGAIN! - woman from the Midwest
What is intensive therapy?
“Intensives” usually involve 3-4 hours of therapy per day, spanning across 1-5 days. An intensive is customized based on each person’s need and treatment goals. Janelle Hallman & Associates therapists rely on a variety of methods and techniques in their counseling including coaching, experiential processes, trauma reprocessing techniques, tapping, cognitive therapy, and spiritual interventions. It is recommended that a client’s entire time throughout an intensive be set aside for session time, meditation, and homework activities, such as reading and journaling exercises.
Intensives are as they imply, intense. They are not recommended for folks who have no local support. A man or woman’s primary therapist must be informed and in agreement that an intensive with Janelle or one of her associates is in the man or woman’s best interest. The client must be willing to sign a Release form, allowing their primary therapist to speak to Janelle and allowing Janelle to speak to her primary therapist prior to scheduling an intensive. Intensives are offered on a consulting basis only (meaning, by doing an intensive Janelle or her associate is not taking on primary therapeutic responsibility for the client – Janelle or her associate is simply supplementing the primary therapy already being undertaken by the client).
What do I have to do to get started?
The first step in scheduling an intensive is to call Janelle's office at 303-429-2100 to schedule a 50-minute consultation with Janelle. Once it has been determined that an intensive is viable, Janelle or her associate will schedule the actual dates and times. The office will then mail out intake forms and psychological assessments. Every intensive client of Janelle Hallman & Associates is also required to complete a full psychological assessment (involving psychological testing -three paper tests- and a fee of $185.) All forms and assessments, together with payment for the psychological testing ($185) must be received by the office at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the intensive. This gives Janelle and her associates time to score and review all assessments and forms. Payment can be made by check or major credit card.
All intensive clients are required to pay for all transportation, food, and lodging expenses in addition to the above fees. A Travel Document is available that contains information on local hotels, transportation and detailed directions to Janelle's office.
Full payment on the balance due for the intensive must be made on the final day.
Payment can be made by cash, check or major credit card. Upon completion of an intensive, the woman or man's primary therapist may call Janelle's office to schedule a 15-minute consultation with Janelle - free of charge. Janelle will also forward the results of all psychological assessments to the therapist if requested.
