EMDR Therapy intensives
You are tired of that feeling of hopelessness, confusion, and the repeated patterns of broken or toxic relationships that just seem to be inescapable. You are trying so hard to figure out what is going on, but you just cannot shake the feeling that something is in the way from you moving forward. You are exhausted. You want to deal with this now.
An EMDR intensive may be the solution you have been longing for. You know that going to therapy can be beneficial and you may already be doing weekly therapy. An EMDR intensive can be the big bang that sets everything else in motion or it can be an adjunct service to what you are already doing. Either way, doing an EMDR intensive can provide the results that usually take months of individual weekly sessions in just a few days.
There is no need to wait to see the changes you have wished for so long.
Weekly therapy sessions follow a format that eats up time. You walk in, do the “how are you?” check-in, dive into the work, and then before you know it the session is over. You leave frustrated because it feels like you have only begun to scratch the surface. You spent so much time sharing the ongoing day-to-day struggles that you didn’t get to do half of what you planned to. In an EMDR intensive, this is not the case.
You have the time and space to get down deep. You get to cut out all that pressure to try to get everything done in an hour.
Hi, I am Jacquelyn, your EMDR Intensive Therapist.
My EMDR intensives typically run 6 to 7 hours per day for 2 to 4 consecutive days, but offer the flexibility to extend, shorten, or break up the work to the number of days that fit what you need. Together we make a plan that works for you. During your EMDR Intensive, you are my only client each day ensuring there are no delays or interruptions in your sessions.
If you have made that decision to take care of your mental health and you know that now is the time to act. Contact me to schedule your free initial consultation to answer any questions you may have and discuss getting started.
Or maybe you are still on the fence. You are intrigued but still wondering, doubting even… Is it truly worth it? Does it even actually work? How can you possibly achieve what you have desperately wanted for so long in just a few days?
I get it. We try and try and struggle for so long we start to lose hope that things could ever change. We start to believe it could never be different for us.
It does not have to be this way.
If you have read this far, there is still at least a glimmer of hope burning inside of you ready to be lit on fire. You just need something different than what you have had before.
EMDR is a very different approach to therapy and Intensives are a very different approach to EMDR. There is no need to leave sessions every week feeling ready to throw in the towel. You know that being able to put that burden you are carrying down and continue with your life would be freeing.
Because of the truly healing effects and rewiring in your brain that occurs during EMDR, we can accomplish things that are out of reach for traditional talk therapies.
Working together during your Intensive you will see just how much your brain already has everything it needs and can make whatever needs to happen for healing to occur happen.
You will be able to move forward as you work with me in an inviting, safe, and supportive environment. I am invested in your well-being and you as a person. I am excited to witness your wins as we work together. I will help you make the connections between what happened to you and what you are experiencing now. The pressure to make everything fit in an hour will be gone.
You may be in a place where the confusion and questions about your life play out in your head daily. You know that it is the questions and confusion that are impeding your progress. You feel you have just never had enough time or space or resources to really get down to what is truly going on.
By working together during your Intensive, you will experience a feeling of clarity and hope for the future. You will have a greater feeling of self-worth and reassurance that it is not just you. You will be able to make the connections that your brain and body want in order to understand what happened and move through it.
So often we feel guilt or shame about our past…what was done to us….what we may have done….
We are designed for survival, but those instincts can come out in what seems like mysterious and confusing ways. During your Intensive, you will come to understand how your brain did exactly what it needed to do, it was just in a situation it was never supposed to be in.
The gut-punch that comes with the past can be eased. You can give your brain and body room to process whatever may have happened and truly move forward.
You know that time is precious, and you have already spent enough of it struggling. You know you need this, are ready for this.
So let’s get to the lingering questions. How much does it cost and how many days would I need to schedule?
Just like other major medical procedures such as surgery, intensives are a financial investment in you and your health. Although you will be investing a larger amount upfront, you will have a fixed cost (that is typically less money in the long run) to work with rather than the unknown expense of ongoing weekly therapy. With EMDR Intensives not only do you save time, but you save money as well. We have also partnered with Care Credit to provide financial assistance if you are unable to pay for the service in full upfront.
There are three tiers of intensive services:
- These are 2-4 hour long sessions
- Great way to “get your feet wet” and experience EMDR
- Can be scheduled on consecutive days
- These are calculated at an hourly rate of $160.00
Single Issue Intensive
- These are full day (6-7 hours per day) and run for 1-3 consecutive days
- Great for a specific goal, event, or trauma
- Extremely effective for recent events and traumas (assaults, car wrecks, divorce, etc.)
- Powerful option for ongoing traumatic stress (natural disasters, domestic violence, first responders, etc.)
- These are a flat daily rate of $1200.00
Story Clearing Intensive
- These are full day (6-7 hours per day) and run for 5 consecutive days
- Great for clients with multiple focus points or goals
- Provide the time and effectiveness to clear childhood trauma and heal attachment wounds
- These are a flat daily rate of $1200.00
There is no cookie-cutter approach to the care you will receive as each client requires a different amount of time. This will be thoroughly discussed in the intake process before we schedule your appointment.
Intensives are not for everyone and a thorough assessment of a potential client’s readiness for intensive work is provided in an intake session conducted prior to scheduling an EMDR Intensive.
When considering if a Therapy Intensive is right for you, please consider the following:
– Insurance does not cover this service and therefore will not be accepted or billed
– A deposit of 50% is required to hold the dates of your EMDR Intensive and full payment will be collected on the first day of your Intensive
– To provide a confidential and relaxing atmosphere for all of our clients, children and visitors are not permitted to wait on location
– No alcoholic beverages or illicit substances will be allowed throughout the entirety of your intensive as this can interfere with processing and slow progress
We strive to make counseling as accessible as possible and are happy to help walk you through the entire process.
Even though my practice is located in Louisiana, that doesn’t mean you have to be. Clients can travel from anywhere in the world to spend a few days in an Intensive and then return home to their daily lives – wherever that may be.
