Individual EMDR

Therapy

EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. 


EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies.

My fee for a 60-minute intake assessment is $160. For a 60-minute session is $150. I have the right to make exceptions as needed. I accept cash, debit/credit, or check. Please, make all checks payable to Townley Counseling. There is a $35 fee for any returned checks.

EMDR Basic Training: 

Consultation (EAC)

Consultation provides an opportunity for the integration of the theory of EMDR along with the development of EMDR therapy skills. During consultation trainees receive individualized feedback and instruction in the areas of case conceptualization, client readiness, target selection, treatment planning, specific application of skills, and the integration of EMDR therapy into clinical practice. Consultation is about real cases and not experiences that occur in practicum.


Consultation increases the use of EMDR therapy by those who have received training, reduces the formation of bad habits and the risks of problematic use of EMDR. It also allows the clinician to develop and integrate EMDR therapy skills creatively into their other skills in a way that enhances clinical efficiency and effectiveness in helping a wider range of clients meet their goals for change.

My fee for group consultation is $40/hour. Payment is expected before the time of the consultation. Check, cash, or charge. If you choose to prearrange a discounted fee for paying in advance for 10 or more hours of individual or group consultation, that full payment is due prior the first consultation. There is a $35 fee for any returned checks.
