This group is for licensed mental health practitioners that are trained in EMDR who are new to the use of EMDR. This could mean that you have received the training a while ago but have not yet felt the confidence to use EMDR yet with clients. Or perhaps you just got trained and are trying to figure out how to bring the skill into your practice. I am doing a group for less experienced EMDR providers to allow for a safe space to share and learn about implementing EMDR into your practices. The focus will be on our LGBTQ+ clients.
I am currently an EMDRIA Consultant in Training which means that I can provide 15 of the 20 hours you need in order to get your EMDRIA certification. Group hours can be 10 of those hours. I have been trained in EMDR since 2001 and have extensive trauma training. I work from a phase based trauma approach and integrate different theories and experts such as Laurel Parnell, Janina Fisher and Dick Schwartz. I have found that using a parts model has dramatically increased my success rate using EMDR. If you have clients whom get stuck when doing EMDR using this model helps them get identify their stuck parts and move from there. I am also trained in Flash and integrate that both into my clinical work and my consultation work.
In addition, I am Queer and Gender Non-Conforming in my identity and consult form a social justice perspective. I am a WPATH Certified Provider and hope that in the future this group can also count towards your mentorship hours if you choose to get WPATH certified. I use she/they pronouns.
