EMDR Intensives:

A faster approach to healing

Kelly believes that one of the quickest and most effective ways to overcome our struggles and find the connections we long for with ourselves and others is through EMDR Intensive Therapy. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR helps us process negative feelings and change the way we think about ourselves and our memories. Because of the powerful healing effect of EMDR therapy, Intensives can produce faster results weekly sessions using standard talk-therapy techniques. EMDR Intensives can help clients to process more information and heal quicker.

Pros to using an Intensive Therapy Approach:

  • Process more information in a shorter amount of time: Dedicate 1-4 days to focus on healing, growth, and connection.

  • Cost effective: Intensives are highly concentrated and highly focused, sometimes requiring less time and overall cost to the client.

  • No more weekly appointments: Stop scheduling your weeks around therapy sessions. 

  • Make a lasting change: Take care of your mind, body and soul. 


How much do intensives cost?  

Intensives with Kelly cost $1,000 per day 

How long do intensives take? 

Intensives take between 1-4 days. Typically, sessions will begin around 9:00AM and last until about 5:00PM, with several breaks in between (a total of 6 hours of therapy throughout the day). Intensives are very focused, but also very flexible depending on the individual needs of each client. 

How do I schedule an intensive with Kelly?

First, schedule a 20-minute, free phone consultation with Kelly. Consultations are NOT therapy - they are an exploration to see if an intensive with Kelly is a good fit for you. 

How do I prepare for an intensive? 

Kelly suggests treating the days surrounding intensive sessions like a personal retreat. This is a time for clients to really focus on healing themselves. Schedule activities you enjoy around your sessions such as massages, yoga, and hiking. 

Where do intensives take place? 

Kelly conducts all intensives at her office in Reno, NV. You are not required to be a resident in Nevada, but will need to travel there if you don't live in the area. Kelly can provide you with a Welcome Packet with advice on where to stay and what to do when you are not in session.
