Our Intensive Counseling Programs


What specific programs are offered?

We offer two programs to meet your specific needs: Two-Week and One-Week Intensives.

All intensives are held in Lakewood, Colorado — the gateway to the Rocky Mountains, in full view of our offices, with its breathtaking and majestic scenery.

What is the difference between a Two-Week and One-Week Soul Care Intensive?

Two-Week Soul Care Intensive

This format involves meeting 3 hours per day, Monday through Friday over ten days.

  • Designed for couples or individuals
  • Soul Care and Counseling for significant, present brokenness
  • Dealing with a personal, marital or ministry crisis or issue
  • “Overhaul” as opposed to “tune-up”
  • This is our most frequently chosen intensive to address personal, relational or ministry brokenness

One-Week Soul Care Intensive

This format involves meeting 3 hours per day, Monday through Friday over five days.

  • Designed for couples or individuals
  • Soul Care or Spiritual Direction that is “proactive” and “preventive”
  • No active crisis or significant present brokenness
  • “Tune-up” as opposed to an “overhaul”
  • Frequently used by leaders on a sabbatical, missionaries on furlough or for directed spiritual transformation

What can I expect during the intensive?

We personally tailor every soul-care intensive to your unique situation, with no cookie-cutter programs, no boxes you have to fit into, and no hoops to jump through.

  • We quickly foster an atmosphere of safety and grace that facilitates deep change, healing and renewal.
  • We unequivocally honor and respect your need for privacy as a Christian leader–no group sessions with other couples or individuals.

With whom do I meet?

Restoring the Soul presently has six counselors who provide intensive counseling. Counselors are assigned and scheduled based on a combination of factors including availability, the best fit, and presenting issues.

Weekly Schedule for the Intensive Counseling Process

Your Intensive may be scheduled as 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions. Your specific 3-hour time slot will be determined based on therapist availability and spacing of clients for privacy. Intensives are scheduled in 3-hour blocks between 8 am and 5 pm and are usually either morning or afternoon.
