  • Is Intensive EMDR right for me?

    Intensive EMDR is ideal for jaded professionals, stressed leaders, and parents trying to break the cycle of generational trauma.

    How Does Intensive EMDR work?

    The Intensive Blueprint:

    • Pre-consultation interview: This will determine fit and focus for intensive. In this interview, we will explore blocking beliefs, memories, images, and emotions that create distress.
    • Personalized treatment workbook: This guide gives you the opportunity to explore your desired outcomes before we meet, during sessions, and after our intensives.
    • Precise program with targeted goals: After developing a customized treatment plan with Yunetta, processing can begin. Virtual and in-person options are available ranging from 2-8 intensive sessions blocks for 90mins – 4 hours.
    • Post-treatment interview: This meeting is intended to evaluate your growth as well as support the integration of adaptive changes in your life.

     

     

    During your EMDR intensive we will collaborate to:

    • Provide psychoeducation related to the brain and body connection to emotional wounds.
    • Identify resources and coping skills to navigate challenging experiences related to memories, present circumstances, and future fears.
    • Discover the origin of blocking beliefs and ways to unblock yourself.
    • Embody the best version of yourself and embrace internal resources.
    • Foster relief from stressors, depression, and triggers as well as encourage adaptive ways of thinking, feeling, and being.
    Adjunct EMDR

    We’ve all had those moments in therapy where we feel stuck or loop on issues related to negative life experiences. It can be discouraging for both the client and the therapist. Often times, when the primary therapist and client collaborate with an EMDR therapist, this partnership can help move treatment forward. 

     

    I partner with primary therapists and their clients to target their clients’ specific memories, body sensations, or limiting beliefs with EMDR. By narrowly targeting specific traumatic memories or intrusive material, brief adjunct EMDR can accelerate progress in traditional therapy, help the client and the primary therapist to resolve stuck points, and enrich their ongoing work.

     

    Adjunct therapy does not replace or interrupt ongoing therapy; it is supplemental to the primary therapeutic relationship. With adjunct EMDR therapy, clients continue to receive treatment with their primary therapist. Usually, adjunct therapy is short term (4-12 extended sessions) and desensitizes single incident trauma or simple phobias that interfere with the client’s therapeutic gains. Treatment is scheduled in an intensive format. The success of treatment is based on clearly defined goals for the EMDR therapist, defined in collaboration with the primary therapist and client.
