Our Locations

A note on insurance

Currently, EMDR Resource Center does not take insurance. However, some clients can be partially reimbursed through their insurance by submitting their bills. This will depend on the individual’s insurance carrier.


Who can attend therapy at EMDR Resource Center?

We help new moms, struggling parents, and men, women, and children (age 11+) who struggle with anxiety, trauma, and dissociation. Currently, we are only accepting clients from Oregon and California for both in-person and tele-health sessions.

What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a modern therapeutic method that quickly and effectively relieves the aftereffects of trauma, including physical and sexual assault, molestation, accidents, war, and natural disasters. It is also effective in treating phobias, panic, anxiety, addictions, and grief.

EMDR is an integrative approach that can be used as an adjunct to the therapy you are already receiving to help reprocess experiences or efficiently address specific issues. We use EMDR to help resolve issues that have not been adaptively processed on their own and are therefore still causing you distress.

EMDR is a powerful tool, and for the clients that are ready, the change that they can experience is exciting and keeps me in awe of what people are capable of accomplishing.

For more information about EMDR, please visit the EMDR International Association’s website or contact us for further information.

Where are you located?

EMDR Resource Center is based in Portland, Oregon. We are currently accepting clients in Oregon and California for both in-person and tele-health sessions.

Do you accept insurance?

No, EMDR Resource Center does not take insurance. However, some clients can be partially reimbursed through their insurance by submitting their bills. This will depend on the individual’s insurance carrier.

How much will my sessions cost?

Our standard fee is $210.00 per hour. If money is a concern for you, there is always room to discuss reduced fee services. We can discuss payment and cost during your initial consultation or appointment scheduling.

Therapy can be paid for with cash, check, or credit card. We are also happy to help you determine if your insurance plan will reimburse you for some of your therapy costs. If you have been the victim of a crime, witnessed a crime, or are a family member of someone who was victimized, you may qualify for free therapy through the Victims of Crime Compensation program. We can help you find out if you qualify for this compensation.

Your insurance may cover our services, and you may be able to pay through your Health Savings or Flexible Spending accounts.

How long should I go to therapy?

The length of therapy will be determined on a case-by-case basis based on your unique needs and your goals. You are the initiator of your therapy and have the right to terminate therapy at any time.

Clearly defined goals set at the beginning of treatment will allow you to see how your treatment is progressing and thus determine when termination is appropriate. Some people enter therapy for a few months, and others find it useful for a much longer period of time. That decision is discussed in the beginning sessions when establishing your treatment plan and will continue to be discussed as therapy continues.

The frequency of your therapy appointments will also differ based on your needs. Weekly appointments are the most common, although some people attend every other week while others find it useful to come twice a week based on issues being dealt with at the time.

Why should I go to therapy?

Studies show that talking to a licensed professional is one of the best ways to become more productive, improve relationships, and better cope with daily stressors. Therapy has the ability to change a person’s life, helping them become a stronger, more confident version of themself. Learn more about the top benefits of therapy here.

Do you prescribe medication?

No, a counselor or therapist cannot prescribe medications. Only a medical doctor can do this. We often refer people to a psychiatrist for a medication evaluation if it appears necessary. Entering therapy does not automatically mean that you will need medication.

Will our sessions be in-person or virtual?

If you’re a Portland, Oregon resident, our session can take place in person. We can also adopt a hybrid session model, with some sessions taking place in person and others virtually.

If you are a California resident or based in other areas of Oregon, your sessions will take place virtually.

How long will each session last?

Standard sessions are 50 minutes. This will allow us 10 minutes to write case notes and prepare any other paperwork necessary for your treatment. When EMDR interventions are being used, some sessions may be scheduled for 90 minutes.

How do I get started with therapy?

We’re so excited for you to start experiencing the benefits of therapy! Schedule your 15-minute consultation here to get started.
