    EMDR Intensives

    The traditional model of weekly, one-hour psychotherapy is shifting to meet your needs. Now more than ever, you need effective support.

    • Perhaps you’ve had a felt sense that something profound has yet to change, but you’re not quite sure how to shift all the way into a new experience of yourself with your current therapy. 

    • Maybe you now cognitively understand new things (“I did the best I could”), yet your body still “feels” the old way (“I should have done something”).  So you’re curious about how adjunct therapy can help.

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

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

    EMDR intensives support busy people who want faster changes, people who don’t want to commit to ongoing weekly sessions, and people who have specific issue they want to address.  Whatever the reason that you aren’t interested in weekly sessions, EMDR intensives are available to support you.

    I offer EMDR intensives for my current clients when they are needing extra support, as well as new clients who prefer to work intensively.

    EMDR is not just for trauma; it is also used for performance enhancement to excel in areas such as athletics, business, and relationships.

    EMDR intensives are personalized treatment plans that give you faster access to select spots, and are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.

    RESEARCH ON INTENSIVE 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. Learn more here.

    • Rates vary, depending on your treatment goals and scheduling needs. A half-day intensive is $2,600.  A three-day weekend intensive is $6,000.  Scheduling is adaptive to your needs.

    • Your insurance plan may reimburse some of the cost of EMDR.  I am happy to provide a super bill which you can submit to your insurance company.  

    YOUR INTENSIVE INCLUDES:

    • Pre-consultation interview to assess for candidacy, as well as target unpleasant beliefs, body sensations, emotions, or images from which you are seeking relief.

    • Personalized treatment workbook, which allows you to work on your treatment goals before, during, and after our intensive sessions.

    • A customized treatment program with targeted treatment goals. Therapy with Fran is done virtually, often for 3-9 sessions (1.5 to 2 hours each session). Clients working virtually can purchase their own tappers, or use an online program. 

    • Post-treatment interview to assess and support your adaptation to positive changes from treatment.

    Ongoing intensive therapy is available if you desire long-term support towards several treatment goals.
