 Realms of Life Counseling approach to EMDR Intensives Therapy

During your initial intake session, my priority is to gain a comprehensive understanding of your current life circumstances and the areas where you may be feeling stuck or experiencing pain. This process involves exploring not only your present challenges but also delving into past relationships, attachment patterns, and future aspirations that may contribute to your current emotional landscape.

To prepare you for the intensive EMDR therapy sessions, I utilize various resourcing techniques aimed at cultivating inner strength and support. This may involve mindfulness exercises, guided meditation sessions, expressive arts activities, or movement practices. Through these methods, I aim to create a personalized internal resource team that can accompany you throughout the EMDR process, providing stability and comfort during and between sessions. Additionally, I dedicate time to practicing grounding techniques and enhancing emotional regulation skills to ensure you feel adequately equipped for the therapeutic journey ahead.

For added support and continuity, I provide a comprehensive workbook tailored to your individual needs. This workbook may include journaling prompts, reflection exercises, and tracking tools to help you monitor your progress before, during, and after each EMDR session. If you don't enjoy journaling, I will explore alternative modalities that fit you, your lifestyle, time and ability/limitations. Furthermore, you will receive a wellness kit filled with resources and tools designed to complement your therapeutic journey and support your overall well-being. The kit is designed with you in mind rather than a generic welcome package. I want to get to know you!

EMDR therapy sessions are customized to meet your specific therapeutic requirements, with session durations ranging from 3plus hours or more depending on your goals and needs. Together, we collaboratively establish the goals and objectives of each extended session, prioritizing the processing of your most emotionally charged memories, sensations, or emotions. Whether addressing past traumas or current stressors, my aim is to empower you to navigate and resolve your inner conflicts at a pace that feels safe and manageable for you.

I conduct a structured free post-session interview lasting approximately 30 to 60 minutes. During this debriefing experience, I encourage you to reflect on your session experiences, insights gained, and any feelings of relief or release. Together, we explore your progress and discuss strategies for continued growth and success, ensuring that you feel supported and empowered as you continue on your healing journey.

At Realms of Life Counseling, EMDR Intensives Therapy offers a holistic and personalized approach to healing trauma and overcoming emotional obstacles. With a focus on comprehensive assessment, tailored interventions, and ongoing support, I strive to empower you to reclaim control of your life and cultivate lasting resilience and well-being.
