This workshop is for participants who have engaged in various psychological and other healing processes and want to get to the deep source of their emotional and relationship issues.
The truth is...
Trying to navigate heavy emotions, feelings, and symptoms is not only difficult, it can also be triggering and overwhelming.
Your triggers can cause you to remain caught in situations and relationships that are unhealthy and stifling.
Because of this, you may even have found yourself trying to numb out with food, alcohol, and distractions.
Our Core Emotional Healing Intensive Workshop® will help you get to the root cause of your physical and emotional symptoms, can improve your relationships and provide you with the tools to be empowered in your own healing.
Other programs/retreats I have experienced were focused on physical, mental and spiritual well being. They have all been good, but this is the first time I have been to a retreat that has focused on emotional health. It’s a big part of us all! I loved working with Elicia & Doug. They are focused on what each person needs at the time. It’s not a generic process, so I felt like everyone had the best support. I now have increased awareness, a clearer mind and more energy throughout the day. I feel less guilt and attachment to family issues and more appreciation for my partner.
Participants will engage in their own personalized experiential therapy structure, and share in the other participants experiential work.
By revealing and working through major aspects of long-standing issues, you will be freed to live from your authentic self with greater clarity and true fulfillment.
Working with Doug & Elicia is AMAZING! I want to put them in my pocket and bring them home with me. They are so loving, caring, compassionate and supportive. I felt very safe around them and free to be and express myself.
Before the CEH retreat I was experiencing anxiety, self-sabotaging habits such as binge eating and purging, poor self-boundaries and not being able to keep commitments to myself.
Anytime I’d say I’m going to commit to something, I would always fail at following through. I felt sad, depressed, insecure, not good enough and isolated.
The atmosphere that Elicia and Doug created was one that cannot be compared. It was relaxed, safe, comforting, loving, patient. I felt very accepted for being me and I didn’t feel like I had to hide anything. I knew that if I was vulnerable I would be able to unlock the answer to some of these patterns and that’s exactly what happened.
My mindset has changed SO MUCH since the workshop. I look at myself differently, I tell myself I’m beautiful, I hug myself, I tell myself “I love you”. I give myself the attention that I was always searching for elsewhere. It’s been very powerful. I have a much healthier outlook about my body and my future and I haven’t let people’s opinions about me affect me being my authentic self. It’s awesome.

With his years of experience and intuition, he actively and quickly provides insights and healing structures with his clients for fulfilled and empowered living.

Doug and Elicia have brought together their similar skills and approaches to help individuals and couples heal the sources of problematic patterns, chronic symptoms and feeling stuck. With their penetrating insight, grounded intuition, and experiential psychotherapy techniques, Doug and Elicia help their clients realize greater connection, intimacy and fulfillment.
Many of Elicia and Doug’s clients have engaged in various types of healing approaches including medical and spiritual, but because clients often bypass the embodied and emotional work, they have not healed. By helping clients remove these emotional blocks that limit healing, the reconnection with their true selves brings with it inner guidance and gifts. Their focus on teaching clients how to use their intuitive skills and bring these gifts into their day-to-day life helps clients become empowered in the world and serve as models for others.
Doug and Elicia are based in Atlanta, GA, USA and travel around the world offering Core Emotional Healing® retreats and training for practitioners.
In the video below, Doug Miller PhD and Elicia introduce the basis of the work they do together in the Core Emotional Healing Intensive® Workshop to help you address the source of your triggers so you can turn conflict and distance into love for yourself and others.
Though this video is relationship oriented, they discuss the personal healing it takes to get intimate with yourself first and bring that to real, deep, transformative intimacy with others.
Having done a lot of fasting retreats, physical treatments and physiological work, I thought I was healthy both mentally and physically, and now I know that the part of my life that was lacking, that I was searching for, was in emotional healing. I have a better relationship with my family and my partner. Our relationship is functioning SO much better and I can express how I feel in a way that he understands it. It's just been phenomenal, the changes! I now have the confidence to express my needs and wants. I no longer suffer from anxiety and depression. I now feel like I belong.
The work I did with Doug and Elicia is very different than anything I’ve done before. I've done group work before but not quite going into so much individual detail, more so group talks or exercises to take home and work with, rather than working things out in the group itself. I'd never done that type of experiential work before, and I was pleasantly surprised!
Working with both of them is such a delight! The harmony in how they carry out the work is really special.
I now feel more compassion for myself and lighter from all the weight I was previously carrying, a desire to reconnect with family and let go of grudges or the feeling that I am owed anything, plus a deeper connection with myself.
I'm so grateful for the awareness during Elicia and Doug's workshop. These protective layers we all cover our deepest traumas with is like plaque buildup. I can't get the plaque off my teeth without the help of a professional. Elicia and Doug helped me scrape a layer of plaque off my heart.
What has happened is my intuitive voice has awoken. I hear myself and know and trust generally what I want to do. The Universe has been giving me exactly what I need and I feel so light and free. I’ve lost over 40 pounds!
My relationships are all improving and the toxic people seem to have naturally fallen away. I’m loving myself daily. I’m a better mother and am teaching my children on a spiritual level.
I compare myself to the Lotus flower. I have blossomed from mud and I feel amazingly beautiful. I wish the entire world would do this work because we’d all be so much happier and at peace with one another.
All I can say is wow! Not only did I learn a lot about my relationship, but also I learned so much about myself and my part I play in all of my relationships. I learned that I don't have to be a doormat. I don't have to sacrifice my needs for others. I can care for others and myself. I don't have to carry the pain from my childhood experience anymore. Thank you so much Doug and Elicia for all that you two do.
Working with Doug and Elicia is a profound healing experience in which their intuitive gifts work together. Though I was in a group, their process was individualized and focused on my specific circumstances to provide me with exactly what I needed to move through the emotions that were inhibiting me. Their very creative therapeutic work was innovative and spontaneous, staying in the emotions and experience that was real for me in the moment. They combine a large range of therapeutic and spiritual approaches, to promote a life-altering and affirming healing experience. Their sensitivity and respect for me provided a safe space to express what was needed for powerful healing. Overall, the experience of working with Doug and Elicia provided a holistic emotional healing experience that helped me move through emotional blocks very quickly and thoroughly in order to realize a more authentic and grounded self. Because I was in a group, I also got to see them do the same for others. It was really amazing to see and be a part of.
My husband and I have worked with Elicia and Doug on several occasions. We started working with them because we were newlyweds and had the worst communication. After working with Doug and Elicia, we were able to really learn how to communicate with each other and really identify our triggers. Once we were able to identify our triggers, we were able to learn what we needed from each other. It was an amazing experience for us, and we continue to grow everyday.
I was nervous that my husband would feel uncomfortable, or ganged up on, but he and Doug hit it off immediately. Which made my husband feel more comfortable to open up. We both work with Doug and Elicia separately as well, to really heal our inner children and past patterns in order to become the best people we can be in a relationship!
