Treatment and Staff

New Options provides individualized life coaching programs that integrate several models including NLP, hypnotherapy, time-line therapy and EFT techniques like acupuncture, meditation and Reiki. The length of the program varies depending on the needs and goals of the clients. While most sessions typically last an hour, the facility offers an intensive “personal breakthrough session” that lasts eight hours over the course of one or two days.

While New Options’ programming utilizes a few varied therapeutic and holistic models, the mainstay is NLP, a technique that essentially improves thinking and communication patterns by simultaneously pinpointing the habits that have prevented personal success, and replacing them with more effective thought and communication patterns of experts. New Options uses NLP to treat a wide range of conditions including phobias, anxiety, allergies, trauma, depression, learning disorders and compulsive eating. In addition, NLP can also be used to instill confidence and build good habits as well as positive thinking.

New Options combines hypnotherapy into the life coaching and wellness programs in order to treat trauma, pain, weight loss, smoking cessation and phobias like stage fright. Clients in New Options’ life coaching program use this guided visualization to build confidence, better manage stress and improve creativity to name just a few. In addition, time line therapy is utilized to eliminate and remove the negative emotions that are attached to past memories, while still garnering the wisdom that comes from those experiences.

New Options Academy is run by Adleta Kneifl, a master level practitioner of several treatment methods including NLP. Clients receive one-on-one attention.


New Options offers events for the community such as the Body in Balance seminar that explores the mind using the NLP method.
