Collaboration: EMDR as Adjunct Therapy

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 therapist.
Often times, when the primary therapist and client collaborate with an EMDR therapist, this partnership can help move treatment forward.

I partner with therapists and their clients to target their client’s specific memories, body sensations, or limiting beliefs with EMDR.  By narrowly targeting specific traumatic memories or intrusie material, brief adjunct EMDR can accelerate progress in traditional therapy, help the client and the primary therapist to resolve stuck points, and enrish 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 descensitizes single incident trauma or simple phobias that interfere with the client’s therapeutic gains.

Treatment is schedules in an intensive format. The success of treatment is based on clearn defined goals for the EDMR therapist, defined in collaboration with the primary therapist and the client.
