EMDR intensives are a highly specialized and personalized form of therapy. They are one of the most efficient and effective ways to reduce or even eliminate symptoms related to a specific experience in a safe and supportive environment.
One EMDR intensive is roughly equivalent to 8 weeks of individual, weekly EMDR sessions completed in just 2 days’ time!
Pros to EMDR Intensive Therapy
Who is a good candidate?
Who may not be a good candidate?
If you are unsure if your situation is a good fit, schedule a consultation call. Some issues are better processed slowly.
What is the process?
How should I prepare?
Tera recommends thinking of the days surrounding your intensive as a personal wellness retreat. Consider planning things you enjoy when not in session such as stretching, visiting a museum, biking, massages, recreational sports, etc. Use this time to focus on yourself and your total healing process.
Is virtual EMDR effective?
Research shows that virtual EMDR can be just as effective as in-person work. With virtual EMDR you can do the work in the comfort of your own home.
Does insurance cover intensives?
Unfortunately, not at this time.
What if I have a counselor?
This is great! You can complete an EMDR intensive to overcome a specific issue while still working with your primary counselor for ongoing support.
What if I don't reach my goal?
Tera will work with you to create a continued care plan. This may include doing another intensive or referring you to an EMDR trained therapist.
All intensives are scheduled upon request.
The total cost for an intensive is $1,500. Additional days can be added as needed for $455 per 3-hour session.
