Helping Professionals

You know the old saying “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” Heck, you spend half of your work week reminding others of it. Inside, you know that to be a good helping professional, you have to take care of yourself first. But for some reason, you just can’t implement it. Dealing with high stress in a relationship-intense environment on a daily basis is taking it’s toll. You’re tired of feeling emotionally exhausted, disenchanted with your work, and out of balance in your personal life, but you’re unclear about the right steps to take to fix it.

We can help you transform the way you understand yourself, your impact on others, and recover from burnout. Using an integrated experiential approach informed by research and best practices, we teach helpers how to help themselves. Dr. Estrella offers one on one therapy, and runs a special group weekly if you know you’d benefit from social support and a variety of perspectives from others in a similar boat. Dr. Schaepper offers one on one psychiatric and psychotherapy services. In therapy or group, together we will explore your strengths, secondary stressors, and ultimately your vision for a work-life balance. Through our work together, you’ll learn the skills to manage your stress response, gain clarity in your career goals, and fill your self-care cup!

It’s time to rediscover that patience and eagerness for work and life again. You can count on us to provide a caring, straightforward, strength-based approach to get you there.  Call to re-ignite your passion for service today!


Groups & Workshops

We are committed to supporting our clients to create positive change and live life bold across the board, personally and professionally.  We offer a variety of experiential, strengths based workshops and groups throughout the year in support of couples, helping professionals and adults dealing with anxiety.

ACTion Group: Adult Process Group for Anxiety

The ACTion group offers a new approach to your anxiety, fears, and your life.  Through  participation in this ongoing process group, you’ll find a powerful and tested set of tools and strategies to help you gain freedom from fear, trauma, worry, and all the many manifestations of anxiety and fear. Based on a revolutionary approach to psychological health and wellness called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) & mindfulness, this group process will help you create the conditions for your own genuine happiness and peace of mind. The group offers an empowering approach to help you create the kind of life you so desperately want to live.  

Nobody chooses anxiety.  And there is no healthy way to “turn off” anxious thoughts and feelings like a light switch. But you can learn to break free from the shackles of anxiety and fear and take back your life. The purpose of this group is to help you create a life that inspires you. 

Your life is calling on you to make that choice, and the skills in this group can help you make it happen if you choose to participate fully.  This group will provide accessible, well-researched exercises and practices, as well as accountability, to free you to live from your full aliveness, heart, and potential. The first step involves completing a 4 hour intensive orientation prior to joining the group to provide you with the information and steps needed to maximize your group experience. Once you’ve finished the intensive you will be given the options to complete, continue with individual therapy or to join the ACTion group which meets weekly, based on your facilitators recommendation.  If you are ready to transform your relationship with pain and suffering, and start your 2020 off in a powerful way-call today!

Workshop Description

Hold Me Tight® is an 8 session relationship education & enhancement program for clarifying your vision together and nurturing emotional closeness with your partner.  This workshop is based on the international best-selling book “Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love” by Dr. Sue Johnson. The educational and experiential workshop introduces core concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, heralded as one of the most effective couples therapies to date.

At our Hold Me Tight Workshop you will learn and experience how to:

  • Clarify your vision and affirm strengths for your relationship
  • Get unstuck from repeating patterns of arguing or silent distancing that cause frustration and pain
  • Make sense of the strong emotions and needs that can surprise both of you in the relationship
  • Begin the process of repairing relationship injuries, even old ones, and understand how to move forward and forgive
  • Increase feelings of trust and intimacy, playfulness, and fun
  • Learn how to take the great conversations you start at the workshop and keep them going at home!

 Recommended Reading

In preparation for the workshop, we recommend that you purchase and begin reading the book that the workshop is based upon: “Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love“.  We have found that couples who have read at least part of the book (the first four chapters is a good start) feel like they are stepping into the workshop with some helpful background, and can take more ground more quickly.

Please note, our program is not designed for: a couple in which one or both partners is clearly no longer engaged in the relationship, is actively involved in a secret affair with a third person, or there is physical or emotional abuse (threat, degradation, humiliation, etc.). We recommend that couples in these situations seek active couples therapy and other support before attending.
