Intensives Team

The Intensives Team is a group of highly-trained therapists, specialists, and facilitators, who care deeply about the whole health of every participant.


Join an Intensive

Anyone can participate in an Intensive. Participants are not required to have an affiliation with Evoke’s wilderness programs to register. If your child or young adult is part of Wilderness Therapy, we can coordinate your Intensive to occur while your child is enrolled. Descriptions of Evoke’s different Intensives are shown below. For questions or more information, contact our Registration Specialists by phone 866.411.6600 or email.


Finding You

Finding You is a program offered online or in-person for individuals with some therapy experience who may feel stuck or could benefit from a therapeutic accelerator. It can also serve as a springboard for those new to therapy, looking for some direction as they begin their work. Online and in-person attendees will participate in group processes, meditations, experiential work, and psycho-education lectures lead by one of our therapists. The online programs last two-and-a-half days and the in-person program is four-and-a-half days long.

Quotes From Past Participants:

The Evoke Family Intensive Weekend was a life-changing event. For four days we (husband, wife, and son) worked on our personal issues, delved into family of origin connections with behavior, learned communication skills, and knocked down the walls we used to hide our deepest selves. The end result was better family communication and a depth of self-knowledge that brought us closer together. We left feeling exhausted and exhilarated. The three of us salute Brad [Reedy] for facilitating this remarkable weekend.
— In-Person Intensive Participant

I am so glad I participated in the Online Intensive. I am surprised at how much I noticed about myself during and after the weekend. While reflecting on the weekend, more realizations continue to come to me about myself and about the relationships in my life.
— Online Intensive Participant

“I did the Finding You intensive in October. Not a day goes by that I do not think about the experience or reference some "truth" that I discovered about myself. If anyone is thinking, "That would be nice, but maybe not for me" is for you. It is like getting six-plus months (or more) of therapy in a few days. Intense, yes, hard at times, yes, but fun too! You won't regret it!”
