Our Program

Jump-start your healing in a safe, caring, and non-judgmental environment.

Our Program

The 11th Hour Trauma Retreat is one to two weeks with a maximum of 6 clients so treatment can be individualized. The client to therapist ratio is 2 to 1. Clients will reside in a private residence located close to the 11th Hour office. Clients will meet our staff and all participants on the first day of the intensive to learn about the program including expectations for each other and staff. Confidentiality is extremely important.

Understanding how safety plays a role in therapy and relationships will be discussed. Client and staff will discuss individual and group goals and how to reach them within the time frame of the retreat. The 11th Hour Trauma Retreat uses many different therapies as needed but the main therapies are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Attachment Therapy, and Relational Therapy. Clients will receive 10-12 hours of individual EMDR therapy with a trained and experienced primary therapist and approximately 35 hours of psychoeducational groups, process groups and integration therapy.

There is nothing quite as powerful as words of praise from a patient or colleague. Here what some of them have to say!

Rachel Starr has a mastery of in-depth emotional therapeutic work. She brings to her clients her experience, skill, compassion, intuition, and commitment. I refer my clients to Rachel for EMDR when they need to process trauma on the emotional and body levels. I trust her to lead them through their journey of healing with expertise and professionalism.

ANNA BETH CARSON, Inner Child Healing Coach

Rachael is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and empathetic therapists I have known in 30 years of going to therapy. I often say i could have shaved 15-20 of those years of money, time and hunting for therapist had I met Rachael sooner. Trauma is not something all therapist are equipt to deal with effectively. Rachael has not only helped me address the root causes of by trauma but also begin to heal from it. Rachael is the best and last therapist I will ever need.
