​EMDR Traditional Sessions

This treatment option is available to clients who have the flexibility in their schedule to commit to weekly appointments. Weekly, 50-55 minute, EMDR therapy is covered by many health insurance plans, which may reduce your out of pocket expenses. This treatment option allows for ongoing support for clients who want a slower pace working through their trauma.

  • EMDR reprocessing of the target memory, ranging from 20-40 minutes. 
  • Containing the emotions that were uncovered and closing the session, typically 5-10 minutes.
