Carmen's Consultation Philosophy
Choosing a consultant with intention is critical for integrating EMDR into your practice. While basic training teaches you how to treat single-incident trauma and less complicated cases, it often isn’t enough to confidently treat clients with complex trauma or dissociation. How and with whom you choose to keep learning is critical to whether you adopt this powerful form of therapy whole-heartedly and facilitate lasting, transformative change for your clients, or abandon it in the year after initial training, as a large percentage of clinicians do.
As a consultant, I am hands-on, innovative, evidence-based and committed to clinical excellence. I offer cost-effective EMDR consultation groups that count towards EMDRIA EMDR certification and indivdual consultation. I serve as a guide and moderate group discussions rather than prescribing what to do.
I’m a life-long learner and have cultivated a strong foundation in teaching in my first career as a scientist and my years of offering psychotherapy groups.
