Free Consultation:

There are many factors that affect the success of your treatment. Having a strong and trusting relationship with your therapist is one of the most important ones. Schedule a free 15 minute consultation to meet with one of our therapists before scheduling an intake appointment to determine if they are a good fit for you.

  • Licensed therapist – 55 minute session- $200
  • Therapist-in Training – 55 minute session sliding scale up to $100 (Interns practice under the supervision of a licensed therapist).

At Long Island EMDR, we pair you with one of our therapists that understands what you’re going through, because they have been through similar experiences. It is very comforting to know that the person you’re paired with can truly empathize with your struggles.

We pride ourselves on our flexible service options! We have multiple offices, are equipped for in person and telehealth services, and can accommodate evening appointments. It’s so easy to make or change appointments through our online portal. And, our text reminders come in handy when you have a busy schedule!

In addition, as a client of Long Island EMDR, you will be given access to Blueprint, a digital tool that helps you track your healing journey, your progress and setbacks. Using measurement-based care, our therapists can better tailor your treatment strategies.

Lastly, we are a safe space and a community of healers. We offer many ways to connect with our team, in addition to one on one sessions!

Yes! We have two offices in Suffolk County. One located in Bohemia and the other in Smithtown.

We also offer Telehealth services. While the idea of seeing a therapist online may seem strange and uncomfortable at first, there are also many benefits:

No need to travel: Therapy online takes away the pressure to arrive at the appointment at your designated time. Instead, you simply log onto your computer and start the session- and then get right back to continue your day. No long drives, traffic, waiting in waiting rooms. For those with mobility issues or transportation issues this is a major perk.

Convenience: Online therapy makes it easier to fit therapy into your day. You can fit in your session during your lunch break, at nap time, during your child’s free time (if it’s for them), or between meetings. And again- just go right back to your day when the session is over.

Safety: With therapy from the safety of your own home, you can rest assured knowing that you are not potentially being exposed to COVID19. With all the unknowns about the virus, spending 45 minutes in an enclosed room is an unnecessary risk at this point. Working online takes away the weariness that would likely come along with either of us giving an occasional cough or leaning in a little closer than six feet…

Privacy: No more worries about seeing those you know in the waiting room. We use a HIPPA compliant system that is user friendly. No need to download an app just go to the link provided, put in your name and you are all set.

Online Counseling may be a good fit for you if:

  • You want to start therapy as soon as possible
  • You’re open to trying it
  • You feel comfortable using a computer (or phone)
  • You have reliable internet access

We understand – life happens! Although the necessity to cancel and reschedule can happen and is completely understandable, please note that at Long Island EMDR, we charge for a full session when you cancel your scheduled session on “short notice.” Short notice is considered canceling within 24 hours of your session.

This is common practice for most therapy offices and other medical professionals. We list this policy in our intake paperwork in multiple locations and do our best to review with you during your initial session.
