EMDR Intensives are highly personalized experiences that forego the traditional in-person weekly psychotherapy model in order to get you the support you need when you need it most.


When might you wish to consider an EMDR Intensive?


  • You need help and you need it now, not after months of weekly sessions.

  • Your weekly therapy appointment keeps getting pushed off of your overloaded schedule and the idea of making it one more thing on your must-do list causes more stress.

  • You spend more time traveling for work than living at home, making it difficult to fit in weekly treatment.

  • You've been working with a therapist on a regular basis but can't seem to get past certain thoughts or memories.

  • Your beliefs have begun changing through traditional therapy, but your body can't move past the trauma you experienced.

What do EMDR Intensives include?

I offer EMDR Intensives for my clients in need of extra support. I conduct intensives regularly in St. Louis, Mo., and Portland, Ore., where my practice is based. I can also see new clients who reside outside of these states. Regardless of location, EMDR Intensives range from 2 to 10 days, with both weekday and weekend options. These personalized treatment plans allow you to skip my waitlist by giving you faster access to select appointment spots. They're also designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.

Clients seeking EMDR Intensives receive:

  • One pre-consultation interview (online available) to access for candidacy, gain insight, and identify obstacles. We'll also target unpleasant beliefs, body sensations, emotions, or images from which you're seeking relief.

  • A customized treatment program consisting of EMDR with Michelle in her St. Louis, Mo., or Portland, Ore., office.

  • Access to digital resources to accelerate your treatment and support change.

  • One post-treatment interview (online available) to assess and support your adaption to positive changes from treatment.
