JUMPSTART TO HEALING® programs are longer sessions which provides therapist and clients to go deeper in what has brought the person or couple into counseling than in the traditional 50-minute session. Jumpstarts may last a few hours, or two or three days. This is perfect for the person or couple who want quick results, or for those who live farther away from Cincinnati and traveling each week for a one-hour session is impracticable. Learn more about Jumpstarts here
