Fine tune your clinical skills, learning Ericksonian-hypnotherapy, advanced ego-state negotiation, and neuro-linguistic-programming (NLP) concepts, that integrate the warring fragments of your client’s divided self, while safely reducing symptoms of such problems as PTSD and dissociative conditions caused by a family history of physical/emotional/sexual/substance abuse.  

This 20 weeks of classroom theory and supervised practice teaches the psychology and biology of mind/body healing, along with a different evidence-based mind/body technique every week to soothe the psychological landscape while using carefully chosen language to modulate the limbic/hypothalamic/pituitary system for greater health of the endocrine, immune, and other body systems, helping to reduce symptoms of the growing list of medical conditions like chronic pain found to be influenced by the mind/body connection.

To make payment and attendance easier, there is no upfront commitment, the class is pay-as-you-go, $35 per class for 20 weeks, and can be attended via your choice of physical classroom, and/or live-streamed Internet, and/or audio/video class recordings, with graduates receiving 52.5 CE hours and a certificate in NLP from www.NFNLP.com.


Monthly Support Groups

Groups can be run depending on the demand. Here are the groups we have running currently:

  • Writing Your Way Towards Healing FREE! – Every 2nd and 4th Monday, 7-8pm. Expressing yourself through writing can be more transformative than you can imagine. It’s also a great way to regain control over your life and to create the story you want to be able to tell. Begin telling your story through a variety of writing and journaling exercises. Dr. Milspaw’s dream is to begin collecting narratives, poems, and monologues to be presented at a community monologues performance in the Fall 2018. Join us anytime throughout the year to start writing (and maybe sharing) your story!
  • Non-cisgender Support Group: This group is for all who identify as non-binary, and not cisgender. Sundays at 6pm biweekly starting October 28, 2018. Please contact Sara at sedwards@4dcounseling.com to register and confirm dates. OPTIONAL DONATION OF $10
  • Women’s Health & Support Group – Starts Tuesday April 17th at 6pm. Every other week held in the office.  This is client-centered and follows your interest! Sometimes we do it “book club” style, sometimes we have guest speakers, and we always have fun learning crafts and actives that heal the brain and nervous system. Other topics include: tips and tricks for managing symptoms related to pelvic and sexual pain disorders including: Painful Bladder Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Disorder, Vulvodynia, Erectile pain, vaginal pain, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (muscle spasms in the pelvic floor), hip pain, etc. Please contact Sara at sedwards@4dcounseling.com to register and confirm dates. $35/person

Yoga for Trauma Release & Y12SR

Yoga is an incredibly healing practice for most, and can be especially healing for those coping with post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. Two separate classes will be held monthly: Yoga for Trauma Release and Y12SR (Yoga for 12-step recovery).

Yoga for Trauma Release is a gentle yoga for all levels working towards opening the heart chakra and releasing pent up energy that can hold us back from our true potential. In a safe, compassionate environment, the instructor will guide you through gentle poses and pranayama (breathing exercises) to help relax the body, quiet the mind, and free the heart.

Yoga for 12-Step Recovery is similar to the yoga for trauma release, and is followed by a 12-step meeting for those recovering from addiction.
