EMDR Intensive

"After doing an EMDR intensive, I'm confident that you will feel so proud of yourself and experience a deeper sense of peace in your life."

What is an Intensive?

An EMDR Intensive Allows For Quicker Progress Than Traditional Therapy.

Like a lot of people, you might not have time for weekly therapy. What’s more, you may find that improvement happens very slowly because of how infrequent sessions are. An EMDR intensive sidesteps this hurdle by taking a break to retreat away from your day-to-day life and immerse yourself in a deeply focused healing process. Intensives are customized to your needs and can ranges from a series of half days or full days at a time.  

Think of it this way: when you go to the car mechanic, you don’t go in lots of short, incremental visits. You go to have your car repaired in one trip. EMDR intensives are the same way. They provide a safe container to work through your trauma and stress without any distractions interrupting the flow of treatment.


You get to do it all in one sitting.

Additionally, EMDR works more effectively than ordinary talk therapy. Instead of making you “talk” through your problems, EMDR allows you to get right to the core of your issues and rapidly resolve them. The approach also is very helpful for creatives, artists, and professionals. It can help you boost your confidence, increase your mental fitness, and be on your A-game.

Some Questions You May Have About an Intensive

Is an intensive really worth all the time and money?

If you add up all the time and money needed for weekly therapy, the cost and effort is usually greater—but the benefits take longer. An EMDR intensive is several EMDR sessions integrated into one block of time. It’s a chance to work through your trauma in a more accelerated format and get quicker results. Please see our rates page for information about the cost of intensive EMDR therapy.

Is EMDR therapy just for trauma and PTSD?

EMDR may be the gold standard for trauma and PTSD treatment, but that doesn’t mean it can’t treat other conditions. Since the goal of EMDR therapy is to reduce emotional pain, the approach can also help with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and many other mental health issues. Additionally, lots of athletes, artists, and business executives use it to remove mental blocks, move past injuries/ unanticipated outcomes, and increase performance and creativity.

Is EMDR intensive therapy safe?

There is extensive research showing that EMDR is safe and effective.What’s more, I assist and screen each client to make sure EMDR intensives are a good fit for them. EMDR isn’t for everyone, as it isn’t crisis work, but for the majority of people it provides excellent results.
