Group Intensives

Are you a First Responder who is ready to repair from years of cumulative trauma in just one day? Join us for a group EMDR intensive.


Clear out years of trauma in 1 day rather than 6 months or more of weekly “talk therapy.”

While we are available to provide a group intensive on-site for individual departments, the open groups we offer are completed online by zoom. Join us from the comfort and privacy of your home.

Small group size: max 12.

Fee: $300 for the entire day which includes over 5 hours of processing. (Please note, due to the structure of intensives, we can’t bill to insurance companies.)

How it works:
  • Once you register we will send you a link to connect by zoom.
  • Clear your schedule for the day from 9am to about 5pm.  Get some printer paper and some crayons. We strongly recommend using a computer or laptop but a tablet or phone will work too in a pinch.
  • We will start the day by introducing the team (we partner with trained First Responder Peer Supporters to co-facilitate)
  • We’ll introduce emotional regulation techniques and the bilateral stimulation (processing) techniques.
  • Then we get to the good part: we will begin processing which includes a tapping technique and drawing a picture of what’s coming up for you. This will be repeated as you move through the day.
  • We’ll take breaks throughout the day including 45 minutes for lunch.
  • Keep in mind, there’s no open sharing of what’s coming up for you and you don’t have to share your drawings. This protocol is individual processing administered in a group setting.
  • We do have a pre/post assessment we will ask you to fill out.
  • Keep in mind, there’s a reason why it’s called intensive! In total, you will be processing for about 5 hours. Seriously, it’s a lot.
  • If, after processing, you find you need additional assistance,  we are here to make that happen.
