Retreats & Intensives in Colorado

Modern Love Counseling’s founder, Alysha Jeney, has expanded her therapeutic work to focusing on couple’s intensives and group retreats. While living abroad in a small island in the West Indies, Alysha has explored different ways of healing and has found doing more intensive work in person has helped expand client’s experience.

Couples located in Colorado can book private experiences with Alysha Jeney for 3 day intensives.

Alysha and her team have also created group intensives on selected dates varying from topics of couples enhancement to singles dating, to mother/daughter and father/son group work.

Intensives are a great option for couples who are in search of a more enriching relationship or a couple who has experienced counseling before, but is seeking a more leveled up experience. Intensives can also be helpful for a couple who is on the verge of separating, but would like to attempt a meaningful effort before making their decision.

Group Intensives are a great option for individuals and couples eager to learn from others and push comfort zones within themselves to activate change.

Healing is not a destination. Healing is a process that unfolds in mysterious ways. Like everything in life, healing can be cyclical and sometimes all we are in need of is comfort in other’s connection and most importantly, deepening the connection to ourselves. Our intensives can truly support you  in finding your authentic way to connect and heal.

More specifically, our Couples Intensives can help with:

  • Building self awareness of triggers
  • Building tools to navigate triggers
  • Understanding and building compassion for partner’s triggers
  • Building self awareness, humility and bravery
  • Consciously learning about trauma and ego identity and how this affects your reality
  • Learning to hear partner’s experience without defensiveness
  • Heal any mutual wounds that have been causing pain for both or one partner
  • Understanding and restructuring power struggles
  • Identifying fears, passions, missed opportunities of connection
  • Clearing up resentment
  • Re-establishing a new “normal”
  • Re-committing
  • Elevating intimacy and understanding pleasure
  • Rebuilding bond or strengthening existing bond
  • Aligning values
  • Re-establishing spark
  • Prioritizing relationship and self
  • Building autonomy and authenticity in the relationship
  • Building Radical Acceptance

In a society with chronic misconceptions and ego driven expectations, we find ourselves feeling lonely, undervalued and insecure. If this is your experience, even when you feel you have it all on paper, we get it.

Most people feel this way, until they have opened themselves up to the truth about everyone’s life… It’s hard. It’s uncertain. No matter how much work you do internally and externally, you will find yourself with triggers and maladaptive coping mechanisms that are inconvenient and cause pain. 

You can expect to feel safe, supported and accepted, as we embark on a messy journey of self acceptance, psycho-education and connection to body/spirit and others.

  • Trauma

We just finished our first Women’s Retreat of 2023 in May in St Kitts and Nevis, as well as a Women’s Workshop on Mind/Body/Soul Healing in Boulder.

I attended the women’s workshop. I found it very helpful to sit down, sit back and evaluate my life for a few hours with a group of supportive women. I am glad I took the time to figure out what is working, and what I could do to upgrade this human experience. I am glad I attended. Finally the movement/yoga at the end of the workshop was a help to integrate the thoughts & emotions that arose. – Sarah, L
