I am passionate about EMDR and want to help our community by helping clinicians become proficient in using EMDR in their work. EMDR basic training is a great introduction to EMDR. But! EMDR is a complicated and nuanced modality. Becoming certified ensures that you can offer the best EMDR has to offer your clients.
Becoming certified in EMDR is an investment in yourself and your practice. It allows you to be part of a community that is passionate and committed to learning, research and offering the best possible services to their clients.
Consultation is also useful for general questions/help with EMDR.
I offer a free group consultation group on the first Wednesday of every month from 8:30-9:50 every month. This group can count towards your EMDR certification. Or, you can drop in for the support. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 217-731-4638 for more information.

I have a contract which lays out all the expectations for our work together. These include work samples of all 8 Phases and 3 Prongs of the standard EMDR therapy. I provide a case presentation form to help organize our consultation meetings. I also ask you to submit several video/audio EMDR sessions to help assess your mastery level.
The cost is $75 per 50 minute clinical hour. We can meet by video or in person, whichever you’d prefer.
It’s important to be aware that I am currently an EMDR consultant in training. What that means for you is that you can complete 15 hours of consultation with me and a final 5 with an approved consultant. (I can refer you to a consultant for your final five hours.)
