EMDR Intensives

What are EMDR Intensives?

Intensives are dedicated days to reprocess traumatic events from ones history using Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. For more information on EMDR, click here.

EMDR intensives with me can be:

  • half day intensives of 3 hours  
  • full day intensives of 6 hours
  • online or in person 
  • weekly intensives
  • several days in a row

The type of intensive and length will depend on your history and your goals. We will work on determining this together during the consultation.

What are the benefits of doing an EMDR Intensive?

I love providing the option of intensives for my clients because they feel better, faster.

I know that when people call me for therapy, they are in pain and are looking for relief.  EMDR intensives can provide that relief in a concentrated amount of time, saving you months and years of therapy. It is cost effective because the work is highly focused and efficient.

In weekly EMDR therapy, clients can feel destabilized after the session… then feel better…only to have to open up the same memory again in the next weekly session. Intensives gives us the space to fully reprocess a memory within the time we’ve decided on together.

EMDR intensives are personalized treatment plans that allow you to skip the waitlist by giving you faster access to select spots. They are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.


An EMDR Intensive might be a good fit for you if…

  • Your schedule makes it difficult to commit to weekly hour long sessions.
  • You love your current weekly therapist, but want to work for a focused time with a trauma therapist to desensitize specific memories.
  • You don’t want to be in therapy for months or years.

Research on Intensive EMDR Therapy is positive:

  • 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.
