Consultation

I consult with individuals and families about personal and life challenges.

EMDR Consultation

I provide individual and group consultation to EMDR therapists. As an EMDRIA-approved consultant, the consultation hours that EMDR-trained therapists receive with me post-training count towards their certification in EMDR. In order to be certified, licensed therapists who complete an EMDRIA-approved training must receive twenty hours of consultation from an EMDRIA-approved consultant. The hours can include ten hours of group and ten of individual consultation, or twenty hours of individual consultation.

Individual EMDR Consultation

I meet with consultees in my office in Boulder, Colorado, or speak with them on the phone from many areas of the United States and abroad. In the consultation I answer questions, give advice, and help clarify areas of difficulty and confusion. I ask that consultees prepare cases to present including client history, case conceptualization and session process notes as well as any questions they might have. I have found that this preparation helps consultees clarify their thinking and enables me to understand how best to advise them.

Group EMDR Consultation

I consult with small groups of EMDR therapists in my Boulder, Colorado office and also by telephone. The groups provide therapists with the opportunity to ask questions, get help with challenging cases, clarify protocols and procedures, assist with case conceptualization, resource development and installation, targeting and interweaves. The groups meet for two hours once a month. If you are interested in being part of a group or starting a group in your community you are welcome to give me a call to go over details.
