EMDR Intensives

Jumpstart the healing process

Virtual EMDR Intensives for Clients. Collaboration for Providers.

Whether you’re a client in need of trauma-informed therapy, or a provider looking to supplement patient care, we can help.

What is EMDR?

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a simple but effective evidence-based therapy using bilateral stimulation (BLS) ─ tapping, auditory tones, or eye movements ─ to accelerate the brain’s capacity to process and heal a troubling memory or distressing experience.
  • EMDR is effective! Studies show that 3 sessions of EMDR therapy resulted in an 84% remission of PTSD diagnosis.
  • Virtual EMDR therapy can be as effective as in-person sessions

Learn more about EMDR therapy in this blog post. 

What is a Virtual EMDR Intensive?

  • Extended EMDR therapy sessions with the goal to reprocess memories and/or events and alleviate associated distress.
  • A concentrated format that allows clients to experience the benefits of EMDR more deeply and rapidly.
  • During each virtual session, the individual works with the therapist to process traumatic memories.
  • Processing involves bilateral stimulation, such as auditory tones, eye movements or guided tapping, while focusing on specific aspects of the distressing experience.

Who Should Choose Virtual EMDR Intensive Therapy?

  • A virtual EMDR Intensive is appropriate for individuals experiencing various forms of trauma, including PTSD, anxiety, and other types of psychological distress.
    • Clients currently in therapy who feel as though something is keeping them from making progress, despite the strong connection they have with their therapist.
    • Clients who have been in therapy before and are looking for a ‘tune up’ in their healing journey.
    • Clients who are interested in therapy and looking to ‘jumpstart’ their healing before they begin traditional treatment.
    • Clients who have experienced a distressing or traumatic single incident (car accident, injury, divorce, loss, etc) or are anticipating a distressing future event (wedding, move, new job, etc).

For Virtual EMDR Intensive therapy, you will need to be physically located in NY, VA or DC at the time of the appointment.

Traditional EMDR therapy is also available, see the clinicians listed below.

The research on EMDR is compelling

  • The intensive application of trauma-focused therapy can enable faster symptom reduction in people with PTSD. It has similar, or even better, results than weekly therapy while reducing the risk that patients drop out of therapy before the end of the treatment.
  • ​Intensive EMDR treatment is feasible and is indicative of reliable improvement in PTSD symptoms in a very short time frame.
  • An intensive program using EMDR therapy is a potentially safe and effective treatment alternative for complex PTSD too.

Providers, Let's Collaborate!

Referring a client out for a Virtual EMDR Intensive can be an enormous benefit to complement the work you are doing.

We will work in a focused and accelerated way with your client so that they can return to you and continue towards the goals you have with them. Only now, the burden of traumatic stress is reduced and the client will have a deeper capacity for the work they’re doing with you. 

EMDR Intensives are conducted by Aimee Dispoto, PsyD an EMDRIA-Approved EMDR therapist.
