Breakthrough Blocking Beliefs

Beginning in 2023, we are pleased to offer a new ultra-exclusive offering; eight days and seven nights of guided healing with Owner and Founder Ginger Poag, LCSW, CEMDR, SEP, and Daphne McIntosh, RN, Reiki Master, during our EMDR Intensive Retreat in Costa Rica! 

With your specific needs in mind, The Columbia Center for EMDR Therapy can create the time and space you need to do a "deep dive" into your body, mind, and soul. With our expert guidance, learn how to unlock your potential and transport yourself beyond the limitations of your daily life. We will learn and experience the mind and body connection through EMDR Therapy, Somatic Therapy, yoga, and Reiki. If you feel overwhelmed by life, struggle with stress and anxiety, overcommit yourself, and are left feeling drained at the end of the day, this retreat is for you! We will help you to identify the blocking beliefs that get in the way of you living your best life, how to heal and overcome these barriers, how to say no, and how to handle stress and anxiety.  You will work individually with a Certified EMDR Therapist for 60- 90 minutes a day to help guide the vision you have for yourself and identify the blocking beliefs that hold you back. When not in session with your therapist, you will have free time to enjoy the property, relax and rest, lounge by the pool, wade in the ocean, lay out on the beach, have a reiki session, or join in on a yoga class.  There will be lots to do, but we hope you do much resting and relaxing!!


During your stay, you will have your own individual "hotel" room. Each room is set up as a private hotel room with a bathroom, coffee maker, mini fridge, TV & access to the pool. Total number of participants is limited to 4 to ensure individual time and attention. Your 4.5 hours (equivalent to over a month of therapy) of EMDR is in an individual session format.

Just Imagine....​

Yoga, a private chef, individual rooms, lounging by the pool, walking on the beach, all to the sounds of the ocean waves, endless sounds of ocean waves..all in a comforting and supportive environment customized just for you.

These are just some of the choices you will have on your 5-day, 4-night all-inclusive stay. Your retreat will be facilitated by Licensed Therapist Ginger Poag, LCSW, CEMDR, SEP, best known for her work in the EMDR field and for her work with survivors of narcissistic abuse and Complex PTSD, as well as motivated individuals wanting to move past the negative thought patterns and behaviors that hold them back. Ginger has the amazing ability to get to the root of what is holding you back from living your best life, and manifesting the life you want! In addition to being an EMDRIA-certified EMDR therapist, Consultant and Trainer, Ginger is also a Somatic Experience Practitioner, having worked in the field for nearly thirty years. Ginger is the Founder of Columbia Center for EMDR Therapy in Columbia, Tennessee, where the focus of the center is to bring whole body healing using the latest approaches in EMDR, Somatic Experience and mindfulness.

Our next EMDR Intensive Retreat is scheduled for May 25th - 29th 2024.
