Individual and Group retreats

Individual Retreats ~

re-Discover a life of love, grace, kindness and joy. Discover your gifts and chart a new course in life. Come and enter into a time of rest and healing for your soul.

Personal Retreats are designed to provide  intensive healing and life life coaching for women using principles of narrative therapy and faith enhancement. (Full day retreats, 2-4 day intensives and secure video-conferencing sessions available.)

You can spend three to six months seeing a counselor once a week -slowly and steadily working through your past…

Or come and spend 2-3 days in a personal retreat – healing your heart and addressing the future.

This is your time to rediscover that mystical, magical sense of loving life and life loving you.

All who are interested in booking a private retreat are required to book 2 sessions via video conference so we can get to know one another and discover how best to structure your individual retreat.


In-person retreats are currently on hold! While small group retreats are wonderful, much can be accomplished one-on-one. I encourage you to book a personal, virtual retreat with me.


I encourage you to book a secure video conference session so we can discuss where you are in life and where you want to be. During our conversation it will become clear if this is the right timing for you and I am the right coach / counselor for you. And then we go from there…

What Others Say about Julia’s Retreats ~

“Transformational insights that break the barriers to unlimited possibilities.”

“Experiential and fun! I was expecting a boring lecture series over the course of the weekend with a few activities. But what I received was deeper insight and activation of my personal strengths and gifts.”

“Julia is very intuitive and points out strengths and gifts I kind of sensed were a part of me. I came away feeling empowered to make the changes I want to in my life!”

“She helped our leadership group understand the different gifts and talents we each bring to the team and develop a culture that honors one another, rather than competes with one another. Now we differ to one another’s strengths and feel like our own are valued as well.”

“This went way beyond taking a personality test, or a spiritual/emotional gifts test. It’s hard to describe – but I felt like I just broke off my mental limitations and discovered that I not only have some amazing strengths and gifts, I know how to use those strengths to get where I want to go in life.”

Breakout / Creativity Explosion ~

“I loved the way Julia broke off our limitations and excuses and opened up a huge space for fresh ideas and images to emerge. My art feels like it’s being reborn.”

“So fun! I came away pregnant with book. Who cares how this baby is received. I just need to write it out and shape it into something publishable later.”

“Catapulted me out of my rut and, at one point during the day, felt like I was lifted into a spiritual realm that opened me up to new ideas and ways of restructuring my business.”
