Grit Plus Gumption Farmstead provides therapeutic services and healing retreats for women survivors of sexual exploitation and intimate partner violence. We are currently serving a small community of women who are looking for that next step in their healing journey.

Wondering if we might be a good next step in your journey towards healing? Please e-mail us for more information.

Therapeutic Services

We provide story work coaching with an Allender Center model and personal healing coach to each of our clients. This entails 12 weeks of digging back into their stories of past hurts and traumas which leads them to discover themes, uncover patterns, and name harms that have been done to them. We provide a safe space for clients to process and overcome their trauma.

Healing Retreats

After the completion of 12 weeks of story work clients move on to the retreats – one per season for a full year. These retreats are intentionally intimate in either single client or two client and staff groups. This allows us to show our clients the absolute best care and individualized programming for retreats. Each retreat has a different overall theme but story, getting your hands in the soil, and finding old root systems are all part of the plan.

Community Building

Community Building

Throughout our year of retreats with each client, we participate in community-building activities and day trips on a monthly basis. This allows clients to build strong bonds with each other and with staff. One of our values is cultivating community and connection – we believe this is an integral part of the healing journey.

What’s Next?

After a year of journeying through retreats with us, we move to bi-monthly check-ins and community events. The women are welcome to stay a part of our community as long as they like. It’s our hope that this missing piece in a survivor’s journey is what will propel them into falling in love with themselves again.

This has literally changed my life.

A trauma trigger can be any psychological stimulus that prompts an involuntary recall of a previous traumatic experience. Sometimes these triggers can be confusing. Why would the smell of a certain cologne or a particular car trigger such anxiety? This trigger tracker can help you process and get to the root of where those emotions are coming from.
