You’ve completed Part 1 and/or Part 2 of your EMDR training from an EMDRIA Approved Trainer. You’re enthusiastic and just itching to use the skills you have learned in your training. But wait! You realize you need those 10 hours of consultation, not just because the 10 hours are required, but also because you realize EMDR is a tool used with trauma and has powerful attachment and attunement ramifications. You want the support to grow as a therapist to use EMDR with your clients in a secure and safe manner.
Or – You have used EMDR for some time now and found it to be effective and powerful for your clients. You are wanting to grow further in your skill set and become recognized as the expert you are. It is time to pursue Certification or become an Approved Consultant who contributes to the growth of other EMDR therapists. After all, you know you have the experience and knowledge and you know these next steps will help you to continue to grow confident and skilled in your work with clients, as well as within yourself.
I have used EMDR in a therapeutic integrative approach since my training with Francine Shapiro in 2007 with thousands of clients. I have used it effectively with traumatized individuals (both acute and complex), children, teens, and couples who are wishing to move beyond their hurts. I specialize in counseling those who are first responders and know the appropriate protocols to use with compassion fatigue and post traumatic injury due to firefighting or law enforcement careers.
I am passionate about using EMDR and how profoundly healing can happen my clients. I have also experienced EMDR to be a powerful tool of change in my own life. I would consider it an honor to come alongside you in your growth as an EMDR therapist, because I know effectively using EMDR will change the fiber of who you are as a therapist and an individual. It can clear the blocks in your life we all encounter while changing and growing.
Just like most “power tools,” it is important to have the proper training regarding the integration of EMDR to effectively it with your clients. I will help you to integrate your EMDR training within your treatment plans for your clients. I have 20 years of experience as a therapist and a supervisor and know the power of good supervision and consultation.
I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant in Training dedicated to provide quality consultation for therapists who are wanting to satisfy the 10 sessions necessary to be an EMDR therapist through EMDR Consulting and other trainings. I also offer two hour consultation groups every other week for those who wish to become EMDR Certified/EMDR Consultants, or wish to have support while they learn how to more effectively integrate the skill of EMDR with their clients.
- Two Hour Group – $50 per person (due prior to the start of the group) – At my office or by Skype – Maximum of 8 people
- Group sessions are the first and third Thursdays – from 11 AM to 1 PM
- Individual EMDR Consultation Sessions – $110 – At my office or by Skype
My groups are a safe environment where each therapist can present their case(s) and can be allowed to think through the process of EMDR as it applies to their client. The collaboration of other therapists at different levels of their career as EMDR therapists allows all of us to grow in a shame free environment. You will be encouraged to grow in understanding the protocols of EMDR and how EMDR can be applied to individual issues such as trauma, anxiety, success blocks, and relationship issues. Because I believe EMDR is an integrative approach and requires a thorough therapeutic foundation, I am confident you will grow as a therapist by being a part of these consultation groups.
My goal is to inspire you as an EMDR therapist to use this amazing tool confidently and effectively with your clients. I look forward to working with you in this exciting part of your career.
Let’s join together to take our clients from Surviving to Thriving!
