Core Emotional Experiential Therapy
Private Healing Immersion
Wherever you are in your healing, Core Emotional Experiential Therapy (CEET) will substantially accelerate your progress.
If you’ve tried talk therapy or other healing modalities and are still experiencing emotional symptoms, addictions, unwanted patterns in relationships, and even some physical symptoms, a CEET Private Immersion can provide the immediate breakthrough that you’ve been looking for.
If you are new to therapy, a CEET Private Immersion can save you a great deal of time and expense by quickly revealing exactly what you need to work on, and the majority of people experience significant resolution.
You may be caught in repeated patterns and find yourself unfulfilled in your relationships or work life.
You may be suffering from anxiety, depression, emotional eating, a poor body image or general dissatisfaction.
You may lack direction and passion, or feel something is just missing. You may feel that there is something that has been holding you down, holding you back or making things more difficult.
You know there is something better for you but you just can’t seem to make it happen.
You may find yourself saying things like:
During a Private Immersion, we will help you identify and heal the real root causes of your issues including: your personal history, your family’s history, emotional and energetic blocks, limiting beliefs about the world and yourself, and the ways you learned to cope that are no longer serving you.
Doing the Private Immersion with Elicia and Doug was the greatest gift I could give to myself.
"Doing the 8-hour private immersion with Elicia and Doug was the greatest gift I could give to myself. I did not know what to expect and what I received exceeded any possible expectations.
The relief I felt was immediate - like a foreign object was taken out of my stomach, liver, and lower back. And for the first time in my life I felt truly loved and supported - by Elicia and Doug - they held me and held the safe space around me so I could deeply feel all of my emotions. And as soon as I connected to my emotions they revealed to me the true story and memories that were buried deep in my subconscious.
My favorite part was going back into the womb and discovering how much of the sufferings, conditionings, insecurities, and pain I absorbed without even being born. I cleared up that mess and was able to be born for this world the second time - pure, innocent, powerful, loved, and welcomed!"
What is Experiential Therapy
People often come to us expressing how they have felt frustrated and stuck in their talk therapy. Despite having been in therapy, sometimes for many years, they feel they are going over-and-over the same things and are using their therapists only for support.
Watch our video on the limits of talk therapy and how to completely break free from unwanted patterns through Core Emotional Experiential Therapy:
Your internal processes, and their origins, are brought into the outer world. There, they can not only be witnessed in a more objective and insightful way, but crucial aspects that were previously unseen are revealed and expressed. The usual repeating patterns, including your emotions, thoughts and relationships, take on a solidity so they, and their impact on your life, can be clearly seen.
Then, while immersed in that experience, often with a release in the body and/or emotions, a precise intervention is provided to resolve and heal in full experience, providing a depth of healing not usually available in other modalities.
What’s Different about Core Emotional Experiential Therapy
Core Emotional Experiential Therapy (CEET) was developed by Elicia and Doug Miller PhD, two gifted master practitioners with decades of experience in Experiential Therapy.
A CEET Immersion is a 5 or 8-hour process. Talk therapy, and even other Experiential Therapy, is of much shorter duration and does not allow for the depth or breadth of processing of a CEET Immersion.
Before the CEET Immersion, you will receive an interview with Elicia and Doug, and complete a detailed Emotional Healing Questionnaire. During the Immersion,150 objects are provided for you to select from to represent a wide range of your past and current life experiences.
By placing your inner experience into solid three-dimensional space, your perspective shifts so that you can see without the usual unconscious habits that keep you stuck. Instead, with deeply attuned guidance, you are helped to see the very things that have been causing your issues and problems. People typically have major “aha” realizations and often express deep gratitude for these insights...and this is just the beginning.
The breadth of what is represented includes multiple relevant aspects of your life, past and present. This includes various aspects of your parents, ancestors, siblings and other important people. With this, various aspects of yourself are selected. Also included are other relationships and patterns, including with friends, intimates, at work, as well as important issues such as love, security, money and career goals. The relationships between any of these various parts are often what create the “aha” realizations and transformative insights.
CEET goes much further and includes your personal goals, higher self, personal gifts, fears, energy blocks, and anything relevant to your experience.
The selection and layout of the objects is usually complete within the first two hours. The remainder of the time involves working through and releasing the various patterns and emotions and reclaiming lost aspects of self and unrealized gifts. After each segment of your work, we return to the objects and the client determines what has shifted and what remains to be worked on. And so, the representation of your issues and their healing is represented in the field of objects, which helps ground and direct the work.
As a result of the healing and clearing, you will have greater access to your unique gifts and experience the world as more supportive, while you get more of your needs met in your relationships.
Some immediate shifts reported by clients:
Following an Immersion, many clients experience substantial support from the outside. This reflects how our deepest and even unconscious expectations can impact what we manifest and receive.
I experienced more of a shift in just one session with Doug and Elicia than I had in my entire three years of conscious healing.
"I was in talk therapy for two years prior to my experiential Healing Immersion and had tried innumerable healing methods. However, I experienced more of a shift in just one session with Doug and Elicia than I had in my entire three years of conscious healing.
My healing journey began three years ago with a whole host of symptoms (depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, fatigue etc.) that, as I learned from Elicia, were repressed emotions. The symptoms began clearing up as soon as I started feeling my emotions through the guidance of Elicia.
One session with Elicia and Doug shifted all of my patterns of shame around my body. I have worked with them several times now and each time has been different but is always exactly what I need."
What Elicia And Doug Bring To The CEET Immersion
Elicia and Doug bring years of the highest level of professional training along with personal experience and highly developed emotional and intuitive acuity. They use multiple approaches such as Gestalt, Psychomotor, Dream Work, Psychodynamic, Psychodrama, Transpersonal, Shamanic, Cognitive, Bioenergetic Body Work, Reiki, Inner-Child Healing, Regression, Maitri Verde’s Psycho-Aromatherapy Flower Essences and Essential Oils and more.
Once the original emotion is released and healed, you will have greater access to your unique gifts and experience the world as supportive, while you get more of your needs met in your relationships.
How to Receive Core Emotional Experiential Therapy
Private Healing Immersions:
Individuals: $2,000 full day (8 hours)
Couples: $4,000 for 2 full days
We recommend 8 hours for new Immersion clients. The benefit of the full day is that it allows for more time to process. The morning is spent getting clear about history and current issues, setting intentions, and going through the setup of the objects, and some of the clearing and healing work may occur, as needed. After a lunch break, we move into the clearing and healing work.
We also offer a 5-hour Immersion for anyone who has done the 8-hour Immersion and wants to work on another layer.

I truly feel like I accomplished more than I would have in years of talk therapy.
"Doug and Elicia make an amazing and perfect team. They are so supportive, intuitive, fun/funny, and loving. What more can I say? They've created something really unique and valuable that leverages their greatest gifts and truly heals people.
I seriously feel like a huge weight has been lifted and I'm so thankful to you and Doug. I truly feel like I accomplished more than I would have in years of talk therapy.
You guys were so sweet and gentle with me, and I feel like the clarity that I gained was priceless, and laying out all of the objects on the floor was key to the clarity I gained. Working through all of that was so great - I can't even put it into words.
For me, the key was to understand why I am a perfectionist and so driven to "succeed" vs just being happy where I currently am...once I understood that I just was able to let it go.
I have been home with my kids and I am, for the first time, aware of my inner child and have let her come out to play with my kids and had SO much fun with them. I know that I still have so much work to do and this is just the beginning, but I feel like a totally different person."
It’s not a generic process, so I felt like everyone had the best support.
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.
I have a better relationship with myself and the people who
are closest to me.
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.I am also definitely calmer, my intuition has increased and I have a better relationship with myself and the people who are closest to me.
Working with Elicia and Doug was an amazing,
"It’s hard to even put into words the amount of gratitude I have for the Millers. Working with Elicia and Doug was an amazing life changing experience.
Elicia and Doug were able to help me uncover the blocks I could not see from traumas that were buried deep within my subconscious.
I’ve taken all of Elicia and Doug’s programs and each program allowed me to uncover the next layer I was ready to heal, and the work they do together took it to whole other level of healing.
I often refer clients to them because I believe so strongly in the emotional healing that they facilitate.
Energy Healer & Intuitive Development Coach
"Immediately following this session, I experienced a major shift in two projects that I am working on (the very ones in which I had been holding myself back). My creative energy began to flow more readily and I was able to enjoy the process again. I feel more open and more free, more prosperous and excited for the opportunities to unfold.
Not only did I benefit greatly from my experience with them, but I often refer clients to them because I believe so strongly in the emotional healing that they facilitate. This is deep and transformative work and I am so grateful to them both personally and professionally."

Their sensitivity and respect for me provided a safe space to express what was needed for powerful healing.
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.
It was an amazing experience for us and we continue
to grow everyday.
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!
“Experiential therapy is THE BEST. Especially with Elicia. She is the mother of all mothers and will hold amazingly safe space for you to grow and find yourself and heal. She changed my life! If you have an opportunity to work with her in person, do it!!! xoxoxoxox"
