Our Virtual EMDR Therapy Intensives

To boost therapy outcomes, we have specialized all our treatments to be virtual EMDR intensives.

 

What’s an Intensive? 

EMDR intensives are longer sessions that happen over a shorter timespan (2-5 hours versus 45-60 minutes in traditional therapy). The custom treatment plan can last from just a few days to a few weeks. They’re like “short bursts of intensive healing” because they are more focused than traditional talk therapy and can produce rapid resolution of trauma over just a few sessions. 

What’s included in an EMDR Intensive?

  • A complimentary 20-30 minute consultation: To ensure a personalized EMDR Therapy Intensive is right for you.

  • An extensive 90-minute intake interview: To help us both understand your goals and desired therapy outcomes. We’ll get to know each other and make sure you feel comfortable. We will design our time together for the best outcomes based on your preferences, goals, and needs. 

  • A personalized intensive therapy workbook: To share your goals, thoughts, needs, and wishes for EMDR therapy and our time together. To deepen your understanding of the process, and help prepare you for the intensive. The workbook will also support you before, during, and after your sessions.

  • Customized treatment plan: To identify your pain points, triggers, limiting beliefs, body sensations, and treatment goals.

  • Break times: To give you opportunity for reflection and integration of therapy techniques.

  • A post-treatment follow-up: To check in on your progress and overall wellness. To support your shifts in treatment and to identify any needs for follow-up sessions, if desired.

  • Follow-up care: To give you options for new or ongoing treatment, if needed.

  • Secure HIPAA-compliant online portal: To ensure trust, confidentiality, and privacy, all our meetings will be held through a secure and reliable online video portal. You will be provided a private video link with instructions before each session.

emdr intensive models

Below are the EMDR intensive models we offer. Each treatment plan is personalized with targeted goals based on your personal experience.

Recent Trauma EMDR Therapy Intensive

This intensive is for you if you’ve recently been through a traumatic event (approximately within the last ~3 months) or have been experiencing intense ongoing emotional trauma, grief, or pain. Not sure if that is you? Learn more here.

After a 90-minute intake session, we will schedule three to eight, 2-hour long sessions over the course of one to three weeks. This will allow you to get the fastest relief from your recent trauma.

Customized Full-DAy EMDR Therapy Intensives

This EMDR intensive is for you if you’re looking to resolve past, present, or ongoing trauma, pain, or loss and you want dedicated, exclusive attention from your therapist for an entire day. With this intensive, you’ll receive the quickest relief and progress toward your goals.

 

This can help you remove any “blocks” you may have from past pain or limiting beliefs, and help you work through stressful periods in your life. If you’re feeling “stuck” in your life (or work) and long to move forward with more clarity, greater lightness, and a more aligned vision for your future path, this is the right intensive for you!

 

With this intensive, you will receive dedicated, exclusive attention from your therapist for an entire day. In our initial meeting, we will discuss your goals and needs for therapy and customize your intensive. After our initial 90 minute intake session, we’ll typically schedule one or more full-day sessions at a pace that works for you. Each session lasts about 5 hours (with plenty of time for breaks).

8-Week EMDR Therapy Intensive
 
(8 x 2-hour sessions + intake session)

This intensive helps you heal recent, past, or present trauma or pain. It involves a slightly more spread-out session model than our other intensives.  This format is good for those who may not have the space in their schedule to accommodate a whole day in therapy, or are the type of person who knows that they will want more time to process in between sessions.

The sessions are 2 hours each, and you’ll meet weekly over the course of 8 weeks. You will begin with a 90 minute intake session with your therapist.

Reminder: All of our sessions are held virtually via a secure, HIPAA-compliant online video platform.

IS A PERSONALIZED EMDR INTENSIVE RIGHT FOR ME?

EMDR therapy intensives might be a good fit for you if…

 

  • You are fed up with being stuck, distraught, or in pain and want to feel better – fast.

  • You find the weekly (often month/year-long) therapy model too painful, too slow, or not fitting for your schedule or lifestyle.

  • You’re busy and have a lot on your plate.

  • You want customized treatment that works for your schedule, budget, goals, and timeline.

  • You want personalized, committed attention from your therapist for your specific trauma or problem.

  • You’re ready for relief – now!

why virtual?

Because it’s awesome and more convenient for all of us.

Benefits of virtual sessions include:

  • You can be in the comfort of your own home (or chosen space) for 100% of the treatment.

  • Less scheduling issues.

  • Easier coordination around work and other commitments.

  • No commute, traffic, or parking hassle.

  • Be comfortable, wear what you want, have comfort items nearby (blankets, pillows, fans, etc.)

  • Have your favorite drinks and snacks on hand.

  • Don’t worry about doing your hair, makeup, dressing up, or waiting around in an office.

  • Relax about potential worries of others seeing or “judging” you – a huge benefit of virtual therapy is that you can feel safe, relaxed, and private in your space. This also helps in creating a trusting, comfortable environment with your therapist! 

  • If you have a pet – feel free to let it snooze by your side or cuddle up in your lap – animals are wonderful companions and can in fact positively affect our emotions! (We will surely have our fur babies by our side at times. 🐶) 

  • Feel more secure and private in your own space.

  • We all stay healthy and safe (yep, Covid-19 is still around).
