Consultations for EMDR Practioners

For EMDRIA certification candidates and other learners.

I bring to my consultations EMDR-related clinical expertise that includes adopting protocols to people with cultural differences, to people with co-occurring disorders (including dissociative disorders)  and to people with disabilities who have communication and cognitive differences. 

I offer a sliding scale fee arrangement to make these consultations accessible to people who are starting their practice, or who work in community mental health. My consulting practice is friendly to people who identify as having lived experience, and to people who identify as LGBTQ.

EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) sets strict guidelines for EMDR therapy

practice to ensure the highest standards of care for clients. These guidelines

include rigorous training and certification requirements for EMDR therapists. My

consultative process includes providing detailed instruction on EMDRIA guidelines and expectations for EMDR therapy practice.

As an EMDRIA Consultant-in-Training, I am qualified to provide up to 15 of the 20 hours of consultation required for EMDRIA Certification. I also receive consultations-of-consultations from a prominent EMDRIA Consultant and Qualified EMDR Training Provider, as EMDRIA requires.

During EMDR consulting sessions, I will teach you:

 EMDRIA guidelines for EMDR Therapy, including its 8-phase treatment approach;

 best practices for client screening and assessment, history-taking, and preparing clients for EMDR therapy;

best practices for use of EMDR Therapy techniques, including the processing of traumatic memories, identifying and resolving blocked material, and utilizing EMDR therapy to address negative beliefs and emotions.

I also will provide feedback and support to help you develop and refine your EMDR therapy skills, and will offer constructive critiques and suggestions for improvement. By participating in EMDR consulting with me, you can expect to develop a deep understanding of EMDRIA guidelines, gain practical experience in applying EMDR therapy techniques, and receive personalized support and guidance as you work toward certification.
