EMDR consultation focuses on the supporting the EMDR trained therapist in integrating the EMDR standard protocol into their practice. Through this process a consultee fine tunes their skills, gains support, confidence, and grows professionally within the EMDR model. It is important to understand that EMDR consultation is not supervision. As a consultant in training, I have aligned my work with consultants who have high standards for integrity and fidelity in the EMDR model. As part of the consultation in training process, I meet with my consultant for group and individual consultation on a regularly scheduled basis. Additionally, I am expected to stay up to date on the current research related to EMDR and implementing the standard EMDR therapy protocol. EMDR certification identifies a therapist as an advanced practitioner and speaks to the therapist’s commitment, level of qualifications, and expertise.
Taking the leap to add EMDR into your practice can be overwhelming. There is a lot to learn in a short amount of time. The journey to certification is highly individualized. I was trained in 2019 and became a Certified EMDR therapist in 2022. Prior to the pandemic, I practiced EMDR in my brick and mortar office. I then shifted once the pandemic began and moved online. For a moment, I too paused consultation, as I attempted to navigate the pandemic and figure out how to make my new “normal” work for myself, my family, and my clients. I remember the relief of getting back into the process of consultation. Being mentored and supported by a consultant, took my skills beyond the classroom. Consultation has allows me to feel grounded to the EMDR model.
Currently, I specialize in supporting individuals working through trauma, attachment wounds, dissociation, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I have specialized my practice to support women throughout various seasons. Ego State (Parts work), RTEP, and GTEP are part of my advanced trainings. Currently my practice remains exclusively online.
I look forward to the opportunity to mentor and collaborate as you add EMDR to your practice. As an EMDR Consultant in Training I can provide 10 Hours of group consultation and 5 hours of individual consultation towards EMDRIA certification. As a Consultant in Training, I have aligned my practice and mentorship with The Center for Excellence in EMDR Therapy. This offers me the opportunity to have my skills, as a consultant, assessed for proficiency and fidelity. As a consultee, a EMDR trained therapist can expect that they will receive a clear path on how their skills and domains of knowledge with be evaluated and developed. You will be provided with tools and resources beyond the Basic Training in the classroom.
Please note: EMDR Basic Training (Level I and II) must be completed prior to beginning on your EMDR certification journey. EMDR Certification requires additional hours of training and consultation beyond the EMDR Basic Training.
