History of Virtual EMDR

line-circle line-circle-mob

Virtual EMDR founder Jeff Tejcek tried EMDR Therapy for the first time on the recommendation of a friend who had also experienced severe Childhood Trauma with lifelong impact. He immediately feels the difference — and starts to think about how to bring the healing power of EMDR to people who need it.

Following an extensive research, development, and testing process, the initial version of the Virtual EMDR Therapy Program is launched. It is the world’s first online, self-guided EMDR Platform and is designed for anyone to use in the privacy of their home, without waiting for an appointment, or needing to go to a therapist.

Virtual EMDR reaches its first milestone: 1,000 clients! We start to receive a flood of emails and messages from people telling us how the Virtual EMDR Program helped them, healed them, and transformed their lives.

Virtual EMDR starts its first of many partnerships with other mental health and healing organizations by partnering with a large in-patient addiction center in the US city of Chicago. Their clients are given unlimited access to Virtual EMDR upon discharge so that they can access help 24/7 whenever they need it.

In response to client requests, Virtual EMDR expands its suite of treatment protocols to include new programs for Anxiety, Stress, and Depression. Now, Virtual EMDR offers 7 complete treatment programs.

Founder & COO

EMDR changed my life completely. I believe that it can change yours too.

In 2012, Jeff Tejcek founded Virtual EMDR after his own experience with EMDR changed his life completely. Diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) stemming from childhood abuse and neglect, Jeff struggled with anxiety, uncontrollable emotions, and self-esteem issues.

He set out to transform the traditional EMDR therapy process so that anyone struggling with difficult and painful emotions can access EMDR’s life transforming power –affordably, anonymously, and at any time regardless of their income or ability to access a therapist. He is proud that Virtual EMDR has been able to help thousands of people since 2014, in particular the military vets and first responders who serve our communities.
