EMDR intensive sessions

For clients who want to move the needle on healing quickly and efficiently, an EMDR intensive could be an excellent fit.

During these intensives, our clinicians spend a great deal of time making sure clients leave feeling regulated and calm.

EMDR intensives are 1-2 days in length – we provide snacks and incorporate movement and breath work. Reach out to us today to sign up or talk through what a typical day in EMDR intensives looks like.
