Emdr Intensives

Why wait? Receive relief in days vs. living with symptoms for months or years of therapy.

Say hello to healing in an efficient way.  Devote time to yourself and transform your life and restores as felt-sense of self.

1. Perhaps you’ve felt that something profound has yet to change, but you’re not quite sure how to shift into a new experience of yourself with your current therapist. Maybe you now cognitively understand new things, yet your body is still confused.

2. Perhaps you’ve been meaning to get into weekly therapy for a while now. Still, your schedule has been so hectic and demanding that a weekly therapy appointment feels more overwhelming than supportive.

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

Who is the ideal patient?

  • You have tried other therapy options and not have had the desired results you want.

  • You need flexibility with a hectic schedule and are more comfortable doing therapy in a set aside block of time. 

  • A patient who has a felt sense, they need to change, but is not able to do it in traditional therapy.   Supportive and talk therapy interventions have not improved my outcomes in the past and you are looking to try something different to resolve distress in my body and emotions. 

  • You are curious about how EMDR Intensive an adjunct to your regular therapy.

  • You have been meaning to get into regular therapy, but don’t have the time each week to attend.  Attending therapy in a block of time, feels less stressful and more productive in your overall lifestyle.

  • You are in need of more focused support, rather than a traditional therapy model, to accomplish your therapy goals.

Who is the ideal intensive patient?

Free Phone Consultation

The process will begin with a brief phone consultation to discuss the intensive model and to discover if we are a good fit for therapy.  At this time, you will have an opportunity to ask any questions about the EMDR, the intensive model or myself as your provider.

 

The intensive will be scheduled during this initial consultation.  You will be sent intake paperwork and a recommended workbook that contains assessments, questionnaires and information to prepare you to work intensively.  This will also cover treatment goals and areas you wish to resolve during your intensive.  Please return the workbook 1 week prior to the intensive.

Pre Intensive Interview

Prior to beginning your intensive session(s), we will have an opportunity to meet to build rapport and get to know each other during an 90 minute pre-intensive interview. 

 

During this time, we will begin to focus on your treatment goals and information gathered in the workbook.  We will discuss a plan for treatment and gather any additional details.  At the end of this time, we will have developed a personalized treatment plan and outlined your goals.

EMDR Intensive Sessions

During the intensive, you will experience bilateral stimulation (BLS) and begin introduction to EMDR and reprocessing.  We will review your resources and targets for reprocessing and we will begin addressing your personalized treatment plan. 

We will trust your brain to tell us what we need to know.  It is impossible to know how much we will be able to address during your intensive, but progress made in the intensive is equivalent to months of weekly therapy.

Post Intensive Interview

During this 90 minute session we discuss changes that you are experiencing. We'll go over your progress and discuss new insights you are having. We will continue to use BLS to strengthen the positive changes you are experiencing.

During your post-EMDR intensive interview, we'll discuss a personalized plan for you to continue moving forward. This will enable you to continue your healing journey in the most positive way possible as we wrap up your EMDR experience.

Benefits of EMDR Intensives

EMDR Intensives are designed for patients who know their treatment goal and are ready to address them in an accelerated way.  Other benefits may include:

  • We get it, you aren’t always going to be able to make weekly therapy appointments. Intensives allow you to have an extended amount of care in a shortened period of time.
     

  • Intensives are for you if you know your treatment goal and are ready to advance your mental health without the hassle of billing insurance or only spending an hour with your therapist, only to realize you have more to process when the hour is over.

 

  • While therapy is traditionally offered in a weekly one-hour format, EMDR intensives are highly concentrated sessions, occurring for 3 hours per day over the course of 1-3 days.

  • Intensives allow you to skip the waitlists and engage in treatment sooner.
     

  • Intensives allow more immediate access to selected therapy spots.
     

  • Intensives allow the flexibility of working with your schedule, and adjusting to life challenges, thus reducing the stress of therapy.
