EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. It is a treatment that allows memories to be reprocessed in order to decrease the emotional intensity held within them. It has been a very effective tool for treating conditions such as anxiety, performance anxiety, and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It can also be helpful to process through any type of traumatic event or traumatic history. The evidence for the effectiveness of EMDR trauma therapy, is much higher than many other types of therapy.

We are happy to announce EMDR intensives as a treatment option for clients who would like to do some trauma work in a short amount of time, instead of the typical model of meeting weekly for therapy. These intensives will be designed to happen in a 2-3 day period, based on clinician and client availability. You may be a good candidate for EMDR therapy if:
- You are currently in therapy and your therapist would like to refer you for some EMDR.
- You have done therapy for years, but would like to have your past memories no longer bother you.
- You prefer to take some time to really focus on addressing past traumas or incidents, without taking months to do so.
- You have good coping skills and a strong support system and feel ready to work through some past traumas.
To schedule an EMDR Intensive, please contact us, 301-304-7108. Kaitlin Kennedy firstname.lastname@example.org and Dante Brown email@example.com will be providing the EMDR Intensives starting at the end of June.
