Offering Personalized EMDR Intensive Treatment
At Agoura Hills Counseling, we recognize that sometimes clients want to get BETTER, FASTER! They don’t want to wait weeks or months to get relief from their symptoms. The traditional 50-minutes per week model doesn’t meet everyone’s needs. Therefore, we are offering an EMDR Intensive program that fosters more growth in a shorter period of time, with more intensive sessions grouped closer together.
Your treatment plan would be personalized based on your needs, your schedule, and your goals.

- An intensive program using EMDR therapy is a potentially safe and effective treatment alternative for complex PTSD. Learn more here.
- The economy is compelling: even compared to other trauma therapy, the intensive format may decrease treatment time, because of time not spent on a) checking in at the beginning of each session, b) addressing current crises and concerns, c) focusing on stabilizing and coping skills that the client won’t need after trauma healing, or d) assisting the client in regaining composure at the end of the session.
