Awakenings Family Therapy Retreat's mission and vision statements were created with your family in mind.
Just as no two families are alike, neither is your treatment plan. You can feel confident in the help you are receiving from us because we customize our treatment plans to meet your family’s needs.
Because this is an intensive family therapy program, your family will be kept busy the whole week! We believe in creating a balance between the therapeutic work and having fun.
Our intention is to strengthen the entire family. Therefore, we encourage all immediate family members to attend.

Awakenings Family Therapy Retreat is proud to be a place where families go to strengthen their families. Our program appeals to families throughout the world, with a variety of dynamics. Our mission is: Strengthening, Unifying and Connecting families through enhancing communication skills in the home.
At Awakenings Family Therapy Retreat, we believe that communication is dormant, rather than dead, and needs to be reawakened through careful intervention/therapy. Our goal is to help families remove barriers that hinder their connection, reawakening the communication that will allow a family to connect and unite with strength.
At Awakenings Family Therapy Retreat each family will receive the following:
The Communictions Model helps identify cycles in communication patterns that cause undesirable behaviors.
Goal: The goal of the Communications Model is to replace these patterns with new, healthier, ways of communicating and acting.
Somatic-Experiential Theory focuses on families who have at least one child who is transitioning to adulthood. Sometimes these transitions do not go smoothly and barriers within the family can hinder the process.
Goal: The goal of Somatic-Experiential Theory is to get to the root of the problem that is causing this barrier, so that the transition can be a healthy one.
Structural Family Therapy focus on families who have imbalances in power and control.
Goal: The goal of Structural Family Therapy is to balance the family by teaching alternative ways of interacting.
Strategic Family Therapy is a great therapy of choice for families where triangulation is evident.
Goal: Create more balance and improve communication skills so that one's thoughts, emotions and opinions are heard and respected.
The Family System Trauma Model is one that helps families who have at least one family member who has been traumatized. Tools are provided to the family in order help the healing process in a respectful way.
Goal: Provide the traumatized family member with a strong support system. Provide the family members with tools on how to help.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is used in each of the theories listed above.

All services provided are completed throughout the week. If you choose not to stay the whole week, the remaining services will be forfeited.
There is not guarantee. The success of your family in the Awakenings program depends on how committed each family member is individually. If we notice that one family member is less committed, we will do our best to increase their commitment level whether through individual counseling or more involvement in the process.
Relapse is likely to occur but we will arm you with tools to help you work through them quickly rather than continuing the cycles that you will learn to interrupt.

In addition, we have trusted resources to refer you to should you need additional assistance beyond your time with Awakenings.
