You Want Healing From the Trauma

You just got into another argument with your mom. You are so upset and angry. She just continues to ignore the stuff that you've been through. She keeps talking about these people and she keeps exposing you to them.

Does she not care? She acts as if there's nothing wrong. Not only did she not believe you but she makes you feel bad for getting upset every time you want to talk about it. You can't do this anymore.

Why can't you let this go? What is wrong with you? You're tired of having angry outbursts and walking on eggshells.

You just lost yet another job. Third job in six months. You just can't seem to get out of your own way.

Either you overreact to something your boss says or you don't follow through on what you're supposed to do. It feels impossible to make any progress in any area of your life.

Just like another failed relationship, you can't seem to hold on to anything. And if you do hold on to anything, it's always destructive and unhealthy.

You're tired of being unstable, having debt, feeling triggered all of the time.

You want so badly to have stability but you don't think that it's possible.

You wonder what's wrong with you and why you can't be happy.

EMDR Intensives
Why Take Months, When It Can Take Weeks

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy created by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D.

EMDR helps people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that come from trauma and disturbing life experiences.

These life experiences often result in a variety of mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, excessive worries and fears, among other issues.


Prior to the development of EMDR, it was widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal (think about being on the Freudian couch for years). 

EMDR shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.

Repeated studies show that EMDR can often produce results in a single therapy session whereas other forms of psychotherapy will take years to deliver.

More than 30 positive controlled outcome studies have been done on EMDR, with some showing that 84-90% of single-trauma victims no longer have PTSD after only three 90 min sessions.

I incorporate EMDR intensive work to help you rapidly process old trauma that triggers a whole host of emotional and behavioral health issues.

In utilizing this way of methodology, I help you to move through and beyond those feelings more quickly to experience relief and joy.


EMDR is a remarkable treatment for survivors who have experienced abuse and neglect throughout their childhood.  EMDR is also an effective treatment for people who are currently experiencing stressful life and are exposed to ongoing trauma (i.e. first responders and medical professionals).

I believe in the incredible effectiveness of EMDR and have seen how transformational EMDR work can be.

What does an EMDR Intensive look like?

EMDR Intensives usually involves 4 hour (half day) to 8 hour (full day) long sessions.

They can be conducted on back to back days or several times during the same week.

Rather than having to work on a weekly basis for an extended period of time, you can often work through many issues (depending on how it is impacting you) intensively and move forward with your life more quickly. 


These services are called an intensive for a reason and they are not appropriate for everyone.

The work is INTENSE, but so is the healing!  A thorough assessment of a potential client’s readiness for intensive work is provided in an hour long intake session via telehealth.
  

If you are interested in exploring the idea of an Intensive, please contact me to schedule an intake session and I can help you decide if an Intensive is right for you. 
 

In some cases, Intensives can be utilized in conjunction with your weekly work with another therapist. After an Intensive experience, you may choose to return to the care of your weekly therapist.   

If you currently have a therapist, please feel free to discuss this option with them and I am happy to discuss collaborative work.

If you are an existing client of mine, we can explore the use Intensives to address specific issues in addition to overall functioning.
