  5. Have received (20) Hours of Consultation-of-Consultation by an EMDR Consultant in EMDR and can provide documentation from the EMDR Consultant(s) who provided consultation-of-consultation to you. It must specify the exact number of consultation hours you received and designate how many of those were individual  consultation and how many were group consultation.

Five consultations are required as a minimum for a consultation training agreement so that we get to know you and your skills so that we can ethically write a referral to EMDRIA on your behalf.

There are two options for the consultation process: Individual consultation and group consultation. Twenty hours are required for your certification. These hours can be through Spring Valley Counseling and Trauma Wellness Center or in combination with other consultants, which I advise so that you’ll receive a range of expansive knowledge from other EMDR mentors who focus on specific areas you may be of interest, such as addictions, etc., however; multiple consultants are not required and some consultees like to stay with one consultant they have built a relationship with. I honor whatever feels most comfortable to you.

Individual consultation/hour: $140.00/hr

Group Consultation $100.00/hr

Other PTSD treatments may require homework, which can trigger symptoms and even cause clients to be unsafe. At Spring Valley, safety is always first. Highly-trained trauma experts provide support in a safe, beautiful natural setting conducive to whole body and mind healing. With EMDR, there is no homework AND you don’t even have to describe your trauma. This is why military members with top secret clearance find this option most favorable.
