EMDR Therapy Indicated as the Most Cost-Effective Trauma Treatment
A number of interventions appear to be cost-effective for the management of PTSD in adults. EMDR appears to be the most cost-effective amongst them. TF-CBT has the largest evidence base. There remains a need for well-conducted studies that examine the long-term clinical and cost-effectiveness of a range of treatments for adults with PTSD.
WHERE AND WHEN WILL WE WORK TOGETHER?I am licensed in Texas and California (online only) and there are several options of how we can work together: Adjunct EMDR intensive therapy (4-12 intensive sessions) in collaboration with your primary talk therapist Personalized treatment programs for individuals (EMDR Intensives) I have a limited number of spots for ongoing weekly clients who are interested in continuing their therapy/EMDR work with me. If you live outside of Texas and would like to work with me in person for Intensive Therapy. Let’s discuss the arrangements. I have coordinated the use of a beautiful home in the Hill Country on 25 acres outside of Austin Texas, where a customized therapeutic retreat and Intensive therapy program can be created to meet your specific needs.

Fees are based on your needs and program design, and are communicated ahead of time in accordance with the No Surprises Act. Typically, intensive EMDR rates range from $250 to $350/hour.

CAN I USE MY INSURANCE TO PAY FOR THERAPY?Yes. Many insurance companies reimburse a portion of the cost of psychotherapy. For insurance purposes, I am considered an out-of-network provider and will provide a monthly invoice for you to submit for reimbursement. It's best to determine the exact details of your policy ahead of time, including what benefits are available regarding out-of-network providers.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?To best meet my current client’s needs and to be able to work with new clients who might not be able to otherwise afford my full fee, I have a sliding scale program that offers a 12 session adjustment for targeted treatment goals. There are a limited number of spots available, current clients, based on need, have priority.
