Mother Hunger INTENSIVES

One-on-one in-person Intensives are on hold. Stay tuned for updates about when Kelly will once again offer this type of unique support.

A Mother Hunger® Intensive is an elegant, profoundly healing experience designed for women.

An Intensive is a profoundly effective path toward healing betrayal trauma, cPTSD, and early attachment injuries. During an Intensive, you and I work closely and confidentially to curate a healing experience for you.

After an attachment assessment, I customize a corrective experience based on the unique relational template of each participant. A Mother Hunger Intensive imprints missing elements of maternal care into your nervous system: a felt sense of comfort, safety, and guidance.

Intensives are a two – three day format and work best for women who have accomplished necessary preparatory work with a therapist and continue with clinical care as needed.  A release of information allows me to collaborate with your treatment provider pre and post Intensive.

“I’m changed since my time with you…internally different. Like I have new cells.”

“I don’t know how to say this other than Kelly felt my feelings with me…her warm strength let me tolerate grief that I couldn’t feel on my own…”

“Kelly is truly gifted. With more than 27 years as a psychotherapist myself and having been a client of some of the most seasoned specialized therapists in the field, my work with Kelly was graceful and highly attuned in a way that most therapists are not able to deliver. She has an extraordinary laser focused attention to relational wounds that cut through defense mechanisms and allows for deep attunement that many of us did not get from our caregivers. The opportunity for deep repair is profound. I refer to her without hesitation and with deep appreciation for her ability to help heal Mother Hunger.”

“When I decided to travel for an Intensive with Kelly, I was nervous. But at the end of two days, my only regret was that I didn’t have more time with her. I feel hope for the first time in years…I’m not afraid anymore.”

“Kelly helped me understand why I keep repeating destructive habits…her style of EMDR was so much more helpful than what I had before. Since my Intensive, I eat differently and it’s easier to know when I’m full.”

Common Questions

“What happens during an Intensive?”

Intensives are highly specialized, confidential experiences. We spend two or three days together, one-on-one, doing the fundamental clinical work of healing. If you’re interested in an Intensive, you have enough knowledge of psychotherapy to know it can help. Sometimes, the structure of weekly, hourly visits simply isn’t adequate to heal the depth of early complex trauma and betrayal. This is when an Intensive can help. I use attachment focused EMDR and weave in family constellation work where helpful. We review your relationship timeline together (provided prior to Intensive).

“Will my insurance cover the cost of an Intensive?”

Most insurance companies do not cover Intensive therapy, so it’s best to consider this an out-of-pocket expense. An Intensive is a unique, therapeutic experience designed specifically for you and your current needs. It’s not for everyone. However, since we accomplish months of work in a 2-3 day format, a healing Intensive is an attractive option for busy, psychologically attuned people. An Intensive is an exceptional avenue to reach and remedy the pain you’re feeling quickly and gently. The ultimate investment in you.

“How do I know if an Intensive is right for me?”

Before an Intensive, it’s helpful for us to speak. Together, we can consider whether an Intensive could be suitable for you. Before we talk, please consider the following questions for yourself.

1. Are you able to travel without too much difficulty?
2. Are you familiar with my book, Ready to Heal?
3. Are you currently working with a psychotherapist?

“Before my Intensive, I was unsure about my marriage. Or if I even liked my husband anymore. After three days with Kelly, I feel renewed. Kelly helped me experience how I emotionally withdraw. I honestly didn’t know I was doing this, but it’s automatic. Now I understand his (my husband’s) behaviors better…no wonder we are both lonely together…”
