Breaking the chains of anxiety and trauma

EMDR Therapy

I help people recover from emotional and psychological traumas. My clients have found that the troubling events, anxiety, or memories can change! I have worked with childhood trauma, military trauma, intimate partner betrayals, panic attacks, concussion/brain injury, and more.  EMDR has been the most transformative therapy that I have learned in my career.  I have witnessed deep changes in my clients after our work.  

Every Journey Needs a Light

EMDR Therapy Intensives (and working intensely with EMDR)

Skip the waitlist and focus on attending to your trauma or difficult experience through our new offering for EMDR intensives for trauma.

EMDR is a trauma therapy that assists your body understanding that the event that happened in your past is not happening right now. For brain injury survivors this is can be your actual brain injury event. For many of my clients I’ve seen wonderful changes and healing from their trauma work.  I’m also amazed by the insights, resources, and peace that comes out of the work.

EMDR is a great therapy for academic job performance, anxiety, as well as distressing relationships, NOT just trauma. 

Why EMDR Therapy?

EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist is an extensively, researched and effect psychotherapy proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences. Including PTSD which many of my brain injury clients have from their injury. It is endorsed by national groups such as the American Psychological Association, VA, and so many more. As stated on EMDRIA’s website: Department of Veterans Affairs & Department of Defense (2017). VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Post-Traumatic Stress. Washington, DC: Veterans Health Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs and Health Affairs, Department of Defense.

EMDR was given the highest level of recommendation and placed in the category of three “trauma-focused psychotherapies with the strongest evidence from clinical trials.  This “A” category is described as “A strong recommendation that clinicians provide the intervention to eligible patients. Good evidence was found that the intervention improves important health outcomes and concludes that benefits substantially outweigh harm.”

What to expect after therapy

While I cannot guarantee and outcome, my clients have told me that they feel remarkably better, and wished they would have started the work earlier!

For a one day intensive, the actual “processing time” that you will have in intensive appointments will be equal to the amount of time that it would take for 6-7 regular sessions (for longer sessions). Because much of the sessions with “traditional” therapy are spent on checking in and grounding/stabilization at the end of session.

Estimated COST of EMDR therapy

My intensives range in length from one day to a week long intensive. I will email you a break down of these costs for one day, two day, and week long intensives. You insurance may cover some of this cost to you (please inquire with them about multiple therapy sessions in one day for trauma therapy). I can provide superbills to you to submit to your insurance company.

If you choose weekly sessions my fee is $350 for 90 min EMDR sessions. I look forward to hearing from you about this transformative therapy!
