What is an Intensive Session?

Maximum Progress

 Intensives provide extensive therapy in a short period of time and are provided in extended hours outside the typical weekly therapy schedule.  Research shows that intensive therapy for trauma can be extremely effective in reducing symptoms.  EMDR intensives can enhance current desired states in business, athletics and relationships as well while alleviating internal distress and resolving blocks that impair progress.

Feel better faster

You deserve to feel better faster.  Research has shown that clients completing intensive treatment can make accelerated progress in a shorter period of time.  Intensives can remove symptoms of weeks or months reducing the toll it takes on relationships, marriages, work and general happiness.

Can I afford

an intensive?

Flexible Schedule

Intensives may have a larger upfront cost and are typically not covered by insurance. However, the shorter duration of treatment can lead to cost savings and provide relief more quickly, potentially making it a worthwhile investment in your well-being.

Intensives offer dedicated time -  outside of the distractions of daily life - to resolve symptoms with evidenced-based modalities.  Traditional talk therapy offers long-term support for life challenges. But if your demanding schedule makes weekly appointments overwhelming, or if you need quick, substantial help, intensive therapy will fit your needs.

Comparing Intensives to Traditional Therapy


Intensives offer a more immersive therapy experience, allowing for more therapeutic work to be done in a shorter period of time. They involve multiple hours of therapy in a given day, scheduled in one-day or multi-day increments, providing a deep dive into treatment away from interruptions and distractions.

In contrast, traditional therapy typically involves hour-long sessions once a week, eventually transitioning to less frequent maintenance sessions. While traditional therapy is suitable for simpler issues, more intensive treatment may be necessary for deeper-set issues that require more frequency, intensity and duration of sessions.

Intensive therapy can provide rapid and effective treatment for severe symptoms and is ideal for those who have not seen as much improvement with traditional therapy. At Willow Creek, it is structured as intensive outpatient therapy offering an 8 hour program or a 14 hour program.  The intensive packages vary depending on weekdays, weekends and evenings and are congruent with your treatment goals.


Ultimately, the choice between intensives and traditional therapy depends on the individual's specific needs, schedule, and the level of intensity and frequency of therapy required for their circumstances.
