Willow House at The Meadows is a 45-day inpatient program designed specifically for women who are struggling with love addiction, relationship issues, and intimacy disorders.
In the heart of the beautiful, serene, Sonoran Desert, we provide specialized treatment to help women begin to heal their core emotional trauma and to change their self-destructive behaviors, whether they manifest as love addiction, sexual compulsivity, unhealthy relationship patterns or co-occurring issues such as drug and alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and other behavioral problems.
Over the course of their treatment, patients will work on family history/legacy, belief systems, body image issues, sexuality, gender roles, trauma, grief, resiliency, empowerment, and creating a vision for moving forward with more self-compassion and purpose.
Intimacy Counseling for Women
Hand in hand with our expert staff and their peers, women in the Willow House at The Meadows program will reconnect to their values and find the strength and courage it takes to face the trauma of their pasts. They will work from a place of healing to let go of what no longer serves them, learn forgiveness for themselves and others, begin to trust their inner voice and accept their innate value and worth. They will also work to reduce the shame and guilt that stems from double standards around sexuality, rewrite their personal narratives, and become empowered to take control of their lives.
We want women to leave our treatment program with clarity about their inherent value and worth, feeling peaceful, confident, and healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Our hope is that by helping them to redefine their emotional trauma, change their negative self-beliefs, and gain practical skills for coping and communicating, they will begin living full and meaningful lives, in ways they never thought possible.
