EMDR Therapy Intensives

EMDR Intensive Therapy provides the opportunity to condense your therapeutic journey and progress to a shorter time period compared to traditional, weekly therapy sessions. While one-hour weekly sessions can be effective, they often involve catching up from the week before and preparing for the week to come, leaving less time for actual therapeutic processing. Intensives allow you to focus solely on healing, growth, and find long-lasting improvement, without worrying about the daily stressors that often fill a weekly therapy session. With intensives, you have the opportunity to efficiently discover and heal the roots of your struggles with the help of highly trained, trauma-informed clinicians. 




Roxanne and her colleagues are highly experienced and qualified therapists, each with specialized education and skills (sex addiction, addiction, foster/adoption issues, first responders, therapists seeking therapy, expressive arts, attachment, inner child work, and relationship issues).


Insight Counseling Center utilizes a variety of therapies to help you heal, including Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based techniques, Somatic (Body) Therapies, Ego State Interventions, Attachment-Focused techniques, Expressive Arts, Solution-Focused Therapy, and more. However, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is the primary method used in order to accelerate your treatment and get the most out of the intensive format.



EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful psychotherapeutic practice initially developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the late 1980's to treat troubling symptoms of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). EMDR has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of many issues. EMDR helps us process memories which have created negative beliefs about ourselves and the world and have shaped our emotional reactions to things.  It can produce faster and more long-lasting results than weekly talk-therapy sessions. This is possible because instead of just problem-solving daily symptoms and patterns, EMDR addresses and heals the root of your symptoms.

Intensive therapy offers a jumpstart to healing as months of therapy are compacted into 3-10 days, depending on each individual’s needs. Sessions last between 4-6 hours per day. You may or may not be provided with supplemental homework to complete between sessions as well. 

We suggest treating the intensive like a retreat. This is a time for clients to focus on healing. EMDR will continue to work after the session, so it is recommended that you do not work, reduce or eliminate personal responsibilities, and possibly stay in a hotel or alternate lodging than home. Further, it is suggested that you schedule activities you enjoy around your sessions such as massages, yoga, and walking on the beach. 




The cost of an intensive is $1200 per day (4-6 hours of therapy per day with breaks). A 50% deposit will be required to confirm your appointment times. The remaining 50% will be paid on the first day of the EMDR Intensive. Intensives are individualized for various needs of the client. Clients are responsible for their own transportation and lodging.

  • Based on that interview, we will then set up an online trauma assessment (Post-Traumatic Stress Index) to help determine how many days you may require.
