Weekly EMDR Therapy and coaching

.
Achieve results in an ongoing therapeutic or coaching relationship, focused on your specific and unique health goals. This may be the right fit for you if you can commit to at least one hour per week and take a progressive perspective on change. Alongside standard EMDR, we will use Attachment-focused EMDR and other such modalities as Ego State and IFS-informed practices for inner child work, adaptations from reiki/energy medicine, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Morita Therapy, mindfulness based practices, and other mind/body approaches to somatic awareness - informed by the latest in research and practice for trauma, stress management, and performance enhancement.


Our work will be action-oriented and goal-focused. All weekly services can be doneremotely at this time, adding to the convenience of our work together. EMDR Therapy and EMDR-informed Coaching differ slightly in the approach to wellness, yet both are based on a three-pronged approach of considering past, present, and maintaining a future focus.


Coaching and Therapy services are considered on a fee-for-service basis, while insurance reimbursement for therapy may be possible through a person's Out Of Network benefits. View rates here.


Are you interested in working together weekly? Get in touch for a free 15-minute consultation to explore this further.

EMDR Intensive retreats

.
Do more actual work in one day than in one month of weekly EMDR therapy, in person or virtually.

.

Specialized support for busy people - to include therapists, medical professionals, artists, executives, military/first responders, students, and others who want to benefit from more work done now.  Whatever the reason that weekly sessions just won’t work for you, EMDR intensives are available to support you during times you need help the most.


Change-oriented therapy. Do more work in a condensed amount of time, rather than over months. We'll use the latest innovations in Standard EMDR & Attachment-Focused EMDR including Flash, Resource Tapping, somatic/mind-body work, reiki/energy medicine, inner child work (IFS-informed EMDR, Ego States), addiction/urge reduction protocols, and more.

As needed, we'll interweave Eastern-influenced wellness practices, mind/body & Polyvagal practices, and creative approaches from a whole person perspective.

Choose one of two tracks: Coaching vs. Clinical
.
EMDR Coaching Intensive: Focused on improving performance & productivity, enhancing creativity, improving confidence, etc. No diagnosing and no assessments completed. Base cost is $1,200 for a half-day intensive and $2,400 for a full day intensive. Intake assessment and follow-up sessions are charged at the intensive rate of $300/hour.
.
EMDR Therapy Intensive: Useful for helping to heal from trauma, decreasing anxiety, aiding in addiction recovery, and more. A diagnosis can be given, you will receive a personalized workbook, and clinical assessments are done to aid in self-exploration and to develop a specialized treatment approach. Base cost is $1,200 for a half-day intensive and $2,400 for a full day intensive. Intake assessment, follow up, and workbook development are charged at the intensive rate of $300/hour. If a mental health diagnosis is desired, it may be possible for you to seek reimbursement for some of these costs from your health insurance company.

EMDR intensive retreats are personalized treatment/coaching plans that allow you to skip the waitlist for weekly appointments - giving you faster access to select spots. They are designed to support your schedule and timeline for working toward your goals.
.
EMDR retreats are effective for enhancing your creativity, influencing big change, receiving a tune up, and can be customized for almost any goal that you have. If your goal is important, we'll use an intensive, integrative approach to EMDR to bring you closer to to it.

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.
