What is EMDR Intensive?
EMDR Intensives are personalized treatment plans that offer faster access to therapy services and support quicker symptom relief. EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach that helps individuals process negative feelings and alter the way traumatic memories are stored.
Intensives can produce faster results than standard weekly therapy sessions, allowing clients to process more information and heal quicker. The Intensive model is suitable for busy professionals, those struggling with stuck points in standard EMDR therapy, and those who have done talk therapy and know their stuck points.
However, not everyone is a candidate for Intensives and it’s important to determine if it’s right for you.

Can I use insurance?
EMDR Intensives are not covered by insurance and cannot be claimed for reimbursement as they do not have billing codes through insurance providers.
How long will the intensive last?
Duration of Intensives: Intensives are typically completed over a single weekend or mutually agreed upon weekday, with multiple EMDR sessions conducted daily. The length of the Intensives can vary, with some being conducted in half-day sessions and others taking place over several full days. The structure of the Intensives is established during the pre-consultation interview.
EMDR Intensives cost $1260 for every 8 hours of processing sessions, which may be expensive for some individuals. However, compared to the cost and time of traditional therapy that could take months or years, the cost of EMDR may be more affordable and the results may be achieved faster. Additionally, payment options can be arranged.
