    What is an EMDR Intensive Program?

    About Jennifer E. Jenkins-Boitnott, LPC (she/her)

    Hi, I’m Jennifer! I am a Certified EMDR Therapist & EMDR Consultant and I bring a relational, client-centered approach to therapy. 

    I currently offer adjunct and intensive EMDR therapy. I am experienced in helping clients heal from: recent trauma, past trauma, early childhood trauma, complex trauma, generational trauma & post traumatic stress. I also enjoy helping therapists, healers, business owners and entrepreneurs shift mindset blocks and limiting beliefs. I work with adults 18+ and am LGBTQ+ affirming.

    Welcome!

    You are already well into your healing journey just by making it here, to learn more about EMDR.

    You already know that something from your past or your present isn’t working well for you anymore. 

    Maybe it’s something that just happened or maybe it’s something that happened a long time ago and you are now ready to heal from it and move forward with your life. 

    You are ready to let go of what no longer serves you well.

    You recognize that healing yourself from trauma is going to take intentional time and energy. You trust (at least a little bit) that the possibility of moving forward and getting to the other side of this healing is going to feel so much better than where you are right now. 

    If you could feel centered and rooted in the present moment, the possibilities for the future would feel limitless. Everything could be different: how you connect with people, how you make decisions, even the smallest most mundane tasks in your day could feel easier. 

    I’m here to tell you that all of this is possible.

    One of my therapist superpowers is to see the big picture, to see the path to guide you on to get to the other side. We will start with connecting and sitting together with all that you are bringing into this moment. And together we will narrow down to specific memories or events that are contributing to what is stuck. We will equip you with tools to feel safe in the present moment and to manage intense emotions. And then, we will use the time and space that we have created to give those memories the attention that they deserve so that you can heal and transform within a few hours and a few days at a time.

    EMDR is an incredibly powerful therapeutic approach that we can use to harness the power of your brain and all of the amazing things it is capable of doing really quickly. When you leave my office at the end of an intensive session you are leaving feeling more calm, relieved and open with more bandwidth than when you came in. And from this space you are leaving empowered to live your life in the way that you want to.

    Often times what people bring with them into EMDR therapy are experiences that they have been carrying for a really long time. They are almost always very painful and have caused substantial distress in their life for a long time. Functioning in a heightened state, feeling anxious or triggered on a daily basis feels exhausting, draining and frustrating.  When this goes on for a long time, it becomes our normal way of functioning even though it doesn’t work well. 

    During an EMDR Intensive Program, in a few hours and a few days time we can release all of that allowing your brain and body to heal and integrate those experiences. Shifting so much in a brief period of time results in feeling like you are leaving my office as a different person, with a new perspective on life. 

    Together, we can change the trajectory of your life.
