*OFFERING INDIVIDUAL CONSULTATION AND PERINATAL EMDR CONSULTATION GROUPS *
I am an EMDRIA approved EMDR consultant and I currently offer consultation for EMDR therapists either in-person in my office in San Diego, or for EMDR therapists throughout the world via Zoom, a HIPAA-Secure internet platform.
Consultees often come to me for the following:
- EMDRIA Certification
- Treatment of Perinatal Mental Health with EMDR therapy
- Consultation to build confidence and practice utilizing EMDR
- Using EMDR therapy via telehealth with virtual applications
- Completion of their 10 hours of required consultation for basic training (if trained through HAP)
EMDR therapy has profoundly impacted my profession and my clients, and is one of the the most powerful approaches to resolving trauma that I have encountered as a therapist. It's a joy and honor to be a consultant, supporting other EMDR clinicians with this work. My own work with clients has become exponentially more effective because of the hours I have invested in consultation with experts in this field.
I approach the role of being an EMDRIA Approved Consultant with a sense of great responsibility (and a great deal of passion!). I want to provide a safe place for consultees to share where you might be challenged in applying the complexities of the EMDR treatment model. I also want to empower you to go beyond just memorizing steps and instead understand the "why". Truly understanding each component of the EMDR protocol can help you better address the unique needs of your clients (and helps you when you're feeling stuck!)
If you are coming to consultation to work towards certification, let's talk more about what that means. A certified EMDR therapist needs to understand how to follow the standard EMDR protocol in its entirety (and know when to deviate). Research has shown that therapists who drift, in that they apply parts but not all of the protocol when working with clients, do not provide the efficacy in trauma resolution seen with those who are careful and in applying all 8 phases of EMDR therapy.
