I was a trauma therapist for 10 years before I trained in EMDR. In my work with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, I grew frustrated with a long waiting list and limited time available for each client, given their complex trauma histories. EMDR absolutely changed the way I approached counseling with survivors. It not only gave me a deeper understanding of trauma, but also gave me a tool to use with clients that allowed substantial relief in a limited amount of time. I recommend EMDR training to all of the counselors that I train. It is more effective than any other model I have utilized with survivors of sexual and domestic violence. Rick and his team are top-notch. I have been to hundreds of trainings throughout my career and few have impacted my work as much as Rick and his team. I am a better therapist and a better supervisor because of his training.
