EMDR Intensives

Why choose intensive therapy? The traditional model of weekly psychotherapy is shifting to meet your needs. Now more than ever, we need flexibility in how we get support. EMDR intensives are personalized treatment plans that allow you to skip the waitlist by giving you faster access to select spots, and are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.

  • Do you prefer non-traditional talk therapy, and want to make quicker progress with reaching your goals?

  • Are you currently doing traditional talk therapy sessions, but want to add a deeper processing experience to the work you're already doing?

  • Maybe your demanding schedule makes attending weekly therapy a challenge, but you want to dive in to resolving issues that you have been dealing with for awhile?

  • Perhaps you’re needing help —- and a lot of it—- right now, and you don’t want to spend months in the traditional weekly model of therapy treatment to feel better.

  • Maybe with COVID, you need more efficient support as the busy parent with kids doing virtual learning and/or the working professional who has even more on their plate since the pandemic.

  • Perhaps you are a current, weekly client who is needing extra, focused support quickly. 

  • Are you a new client who just prefers to work intensively? ​

EMDR intensives are designed to provide a progressive process to healing, support you with aligning your life from the very beginning, and maintain the results of having met your goals. I also offer adjunctive EMDR therapy if you want to keep working with your current therapist. If you have a strong commitment to your growth process, then this form of EMDR treatment may be a good option for you! 

Check out the research on the effectiveness of EMDR intensives: 

  • Intensive application of trauma-focused therapy seems to be well tolerated in patients with PTSD, enabling faster symptom reduction with similar, or even better, results, while reducing the risk that patients drop out prematurely. Learn more here and  here.

  • Intensive EMDR treatment is feasible and is indicative of reliable improvement in PTSD symptoms in a very short time frame. Learn more  here.

  • An intensive program using EMDR therapy is a potentially safe and effective treatment alternative for complex PTSD. Learn more  here.

  • The economy is compelling: even compared to other trauma therapy, the intensive format may decrease treatment time, because of time not spent on a) checking in at the beginning of each session, b) addressing current crises and concerns, c) focusing on stabilizing and coping skills that the client won’t need after trauma healing, or d) assisting the client in regaining composure at the end of the session.
