The Heal-in Journey
Brainspotting &EMDR Intensive Programs
- Currently working with a therapist and feel stuck?
- Someone who needs help dealing with trauma right now and doesn't want to wait months in traditional therapy to feel better?
- Someone whose schedule does not allow for the weekly interruption of time spent in therapy?
- In the helps field (therapist/counselor, nurse, teacher, physician, pastor, etc), experiencing burnout and need to work through it quickly so you can remain efficient and continue to show up at your job?
If you said "yes" to any of the above, you are a great candidate for a therapy intensive!
Sometimes a 50-minute session is not enough. It seems like just as soon as you start going deep into what brought you in for therapy, you have to stop and wait until your next session.
Perhaps you find that you do not want to commit to weekly sessions because of scheduling conflicts, and, well, life, and you prefer to have several accelerated, longer sessions get to the root and heal, so you can move on with your life.
The Heal-in Journey Intensive Program offers Brainspotting and EMDR intensives without interruption, so you can have a dedicated chunk of time devoted to addressing the memories and symptoms that brought you in for treatment.
The Heal-in Journey Intensive Program is designed for trauma resolution, increasing motivation, or helping you break through creativity/performance blocks.

What is a Heal-in Journey Intensive Like?
Heal-in Journey intensives are often scheduled over a weekend or over several weekends, depending on the identified goals.
The Intensive Program format includes:
A 2-hour assessment appointment a few days prior to the Intensive Program. This appointment time is used to assess for candidacy in the Intensive Program, discuss the concerns bringing you to treatment, address your questions and identify the negative belief systems that have reinforced old patterns of thinking and feeling.
Intensive Programs are available on Saturdays in your choice of either half-day or full-day formats. The half-day appointment is from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm, while the full-day format is 8:00 am -3:00 pm with an hour break for lunch. Your Intensive Program Session begins by developing resources to increase your sense of calm, security, and control, allowing you to more confidently examine your trauma. The initial 45-60 minutes will be spent creating these resources to support you both in and following your Intensive Program. Reprocessing the trauma or issue will last for 2.5 to 3 hours in the half-day format, and 4.5 to 5 hours in the full-day format, with breaks for self-care as needed. The remaining 15-30 minutes are spent closing the session and assessing for additional needs.
The Intensive Program concludes with a 60-minute follow-up appointment the week after your processing session. Additional therapy appointments may be necessary to achieve your treatment goals. Note: additional sessions beyond the follow-up appointment are not included in the Intensive Program fee; recommendations are individualized based on your specific needs. In complex cases, especially with multiple traumatic events, additional intensive work may be recommended.
