Tamra Hughes, MA, LPC
EMDR Center of the Rockies Founder
EMDRIA Approved Trainer and Consultant
EMDR Center of the Rockies Lead Trainer
Tamra Hughes, MA, LPC has been an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Therapy Trainer since late 2013, teaching EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Trainings and Advanced Trainings that have focused on attachment, relational approaches to EMDR Therapy, and strategies for maintaining effective reprocessing. Tamra has been actively involved with the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) in numerous capacities over the past decade as a member and chair of their Standards and Training task group, member of the Virtual Therapy and Training task group and most currently as a member of the Board of Directors. She co-authored the EMDRIA Virtual EMDR Therapy Guidelines. She spent several years as an Affiliate Faculty Member at Regis University, teaching graduate level counseling courses on trauma, crisis, development and self care, among others.
Tamra has been in practice since 2003 working with trauma, grief, anxiety, stress and volatile/abusive relationships. Prior to focusing her work on trauma, she worked in the field of high conflict divorce, exploring the impact of attachment on caregiver-child bonds, and deepening her understanding of the trauma of fractured relationships. She has enthusiastically utilized EMDR therapy since beginning her practice in late 2003, and has found it to be a therapy that is not only an invaluable tool for working with trauma, but is more importantly a theory for understanding the framework for resilience, meaning making, and successful clinical work. Tamra’s teaching style is warm and engaging. She greatly enjoys educating others about EMDR and sharing her enthusiasm for this remarkable therapy.
In addition to teaching, Tamra runs a busy group practice from multiple locations in the Denver Metropolitan area. For information about Tamra’s therapy practice, or to schedule an EMDR therapy or consultation appointment, please visit Tamra’s therapy website at: GreenwoodCounselingCenter.com
