Consultation

After more than fifteen years of consulting with therapists for their EMDRIA certification, I am no longer taking on consultees for certification. However, I do offer consultation for therapists who are wanting:

  • case consultation
  • consultation in the use of EMDR, and Imaginal Nurturing and the Developing a Secure Self approach
  • consultation in working with attachment-based issues
  • to explore the attachment aspects of the therapeutic relationship
  • grounding in the fundamentals of EMDR (once you have completed basic EMDR training)

Using a collaborative approach, I aim to respond to your needs whether it be to hone your therapeutic skills in working with deficits and attachment issues or the use of EMDR, to deepen your understanding of the client’s unconscious processes, or to increase your awareness of issues in the therapeutic relationship. Topics which may come up include:

  • treatment planning
  • the use of organizing tools, such as a lifeline
  • readiness for EMDR
  • developing resources
  • EMDR targeting sequence
  • attachment in the client’s history and in the therapeutic relationship
  • the Developing a Secure Self approach and Imaginal Nurturing
  • developing affect regulation and tolerance
  • targeting preverbal trauma
  • dissociation
  • the use of art, imagery, and metaphor

Structure and fees

I offer consultation by telephone, FaceTime, or Skype. My fee for consultation is $105 per 60 minutes including any telephone charges with a 30-minute minimum for phone consultation. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the possibility of working together.
