Leading the Way in Trauma Therapy

Pandemic Update: We are continuing to offer intensive trauma-focused therapy, either in person or via video-conference (available in many states).


If an issue is affecting you emotionally, we treat it. Some of the more common issues we treat include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief and Loss
  • PTSD
  • Trauma
  • Behavioral Challenges
  • Stress
  • Anger Management

These may be caused or worsened by child abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, divorce, death of a loved one, critical illness, military combat, violent crime, motor vehicle accident, LGBTQ struggles, bullying, relationship issues, and more. We can help.


In intensive therapy, you’ll spend full consecutive days with one of our compassionate therapists who is skilled in helping people in your situation. You will be the therapist’s only client for the days you’ve reserved. With our proven-successful treatment approach, most of our clients are able to achieve true healing in a couple of days to a couple of weeks. This is significantly different from hour-per-week therapy which can take months or years.


We understand how urgent the need for help can be, and we will work with you to begin your healing process as soon as possible. Our expert therapists are extensively trained, supervised, and experienced in intensive trauma therapy, featuring the most efficient of the proven-effective trauma healing therapies: eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and progressive counting (PC). Our founder and executive director, Ricky Greenwald, PsyD, is a leading expert in EMDR, and the developer of PC as well as our intensive therapy model.

Cost and Insurance:

Unfortunately, insurance companies do not cover intensive therapy yet. We are a non-profit organization and as such strive to have low-cost options available. Pricing depends on which therapist is selected, and number of days needed.

We also have many other locations in the USA and Canada.

"I was so fortunate to be the recipient of progressive counting...I cannot tell you with words...I feel like it has changed my life, and I will be forever grateful."


"I'm so grateful for the work you do and helping people like me. Wished I had found your center sooner but better late than never. My stress level is so manageable now. Truly amazing that I'm feeling so great. Sincere gratitude and thanks for what you do."
