Participate in Private Sessions

Benefits of Private Sessions

Private sessions offer an opportunity to learn basic skills of intentional presence while working through personal life challenges. During these sessions, Rhonda Mattern, the founder of intentional presence, will teach you basic skills for state shifting, inner exploration, and learning to relate to inner experiences like emotions, needs, and conflicting desires in more skillful ways. She will also help you identify and shift unseen belief that create action blocks and stuck points in your life. 


Private sessions offer mentoring, skill-building, and an opportunity to practice building a skillful, authentic, and trusting friendship with another human being. Although the skills we teach are therapeutic, and we've trained a number of psychotherapists in our skills, we don't offer psychotherapy. Further, we don't subscribe to the widely-held view that your emotional and mental challenges are "disorders" or illnesses. 


The goal of private sessions in intentional presence is to provide you with missing skills, knowledge and experiences that to help you break free of limiting patterns, resolve action blocks, and live a more authentic, connected, and compassionate life.
