A faster approach to therapy

Shelby believes that people generally seek the quickest and most effective ways to overcome their struggles. EMDR intensives can reduce/eliminate symptoms in a much more efficient way than traditional therapy.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is a neurologically based psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR helps us process negative feelings and change the way we think about ourselves and our memories. Because of the powerful healing effect of EMDR therapy, Intensives can produce faster results than weekly sessions using standard talk-therapy techniques. EMDR Intensives can help you process information faster and heal quicker and allows you to get back to the most important things in your life.

Shelby provides EMDR Intensives in person to people who want to experience faster results in therapy. EMDR Intensives are conducted in Fallston, Maryland. You might live in Maryland or travel from outside of the state to receive treatment. Shelby is also licensed in Florida and can travel to you in that state or do virtual sessions with people in Florida. In this case, all travel expenses must be paid for in addition to the daily rate.


You might choose EMDR Intensives if:

* you have suffered a recent event and you are on leave from work and want to get back to work faster

*your symptoms are disruptive to your day-to-day functioning and you want faster results

*you want to work with Shelby but do not want online counseling;

*you are busy and don’t have time for week-to-week therapy, etc.

Pros to using an Intensive Therapy Approach:

♦ Process more information in a shorter amount of time:
♦ Dedicate 1-3 days to focus on healing, growth, and connection.
♦ Cost effective: Intensives are highly concentrated and highly focused, sometimes requiring less time and overall cost to the client.
♦ No more weekly appointments: Stop scheduling your weeks around therapy sessions.
♦ Lasting and sustainable change: Take control of your own healing so you can live the life you want.

How much do intensives cost?

♦ Full-day Intensives (in-person) = $1,000 per day (5-6-hours of therapy per day)

♦ Half-day Intensives (in-person) = $500 (2.5-3 hours of therapy)

♦ A 50% deposit will be required to confirm your appointment times.

♦ The remaining 50% will be paid on the first day of the EMDR Intensive.


How long do intensives take?

♦ Full day intensives (in-person) take between 1-3 days.
♦ Typically, sessions will begin around 9:00AM and last until about 5:00PM (but this can be varied), with several breaks in between (a total of 6 hours of therapy throughout the day).
