Our weekly EMDR therapy program is offered to adult clients interested in pursuing EMDR therapy for a variety of issues. Regular EMDR sessions maintain the momentum of treatment with each session building upon the previous one. The structured processing that occurs allows for consistency, stability, and security when managing challenges or hardships. This consistency allows for the brain to adapt and reprocess memories more efficiently.
Imagine your mind is like a bookshelf, and all your memories and experiences are stored in different books. Some of these books have really tough and painful chapters that bother you even when you try to put them away on the shelf.
EMDR is like having a skilled librarian (your therapist) help you take those difficult books off the shelf, read through the tough chapters, understand them better, and put them back in a way that doesn't cause you as much distress.
The therapist uses various techniques, including guiding your eye movements (hence the name "eye movement"), sounds, or tactile sensations, to help you process these difficult memories and experiences. It's like rearranging the chapters in those tough books so that they're not as overwhelming. This provides relief from any difficult thoughts, memories, sensations, or behaviors allowing you to live your life with greater peace and happiness.
Sessions for the weekly program are booked once a week or every other week for 60 minutes. With the weekly program, you can spend a longer period of time working with Ambre. If you are looking for intensives over a shorter period of time, visit the EMDR intensives page to learn more.
Adjunctive therapy is provided frequently at our practice. We work alongside your primary therapist to ensure you are receiving optimal care and support.
At this time, we are only accepting adult clients 18+.
Intensives are available in-person at the office in Bedminster, NJ and online. Potential clients interested in online sessions must be New Jersey residents. If you are located out of state, you are welcome to travel for in-person sessions to the Bedminster office location.
We are in-network with the following carriers and networks:
*Please note: We are not in-network with Medicaid/NJ Family Care
If we're out of network with your plan and you have out-of-network benefits, you can receive full or partial reimbursement for sessions depending on your plan. We utilize Mentaya to submit superbills on your behalf. Out-of-pocket session costs are $200.00 per hour booked.
Although EMDR can provide faster relief, healing looks and feels different for everyone. This depends on the person and nature of what is being processed with EMDR among other factors. Relief may occur as soon as one to several sessions or longer, however, this varies and is unique for everyone.
Ambre offers a single 60-minute virtual education session and Q&A prior to beginning EMDR sessions for $100.00. Your time is valuable and having an education session can be helpful in exploring whether EMDR is the right fit before committing to any form of treatment. This session serves to inform those interested in learning more about EMDR, the neurobiology of trauma and stress on the mind and body, and the breakdown of what to expect in weekly sessions. *Please note: The education session is designed to provide you with valuable information about our approach and how we can potentially support you. This session is not a commitment to engage in therapeutic sessions or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment nor is it a substitute for therapy.
