One of the best ways to continue to grow as an EMDR therapist is to develop a strong sense of connection in the EMDR community and to create avenues for ongoing questions and support by participating in a consultation group. The goal for consultation groups is not only for EMDR trained clinicians to further develop their understanding and implementation of EMDR therapy, but to feel involved in this growing field.

At EMDR Center of the Rockies, we offer consultation groups for clinicians working toward certification, groups working toward approved consultant status, and groups that simply want to engage in ongoing support.

For EMDR trained clinicians working toward certification, we provide a detailed list of areas that should be understood in each phase, and will work with each consultee in individual consultation to discuss their strengths as an EMDR clinician and work with them to strengthen and grow in any necessary areas.

Both individual and group consultation are offered in HIPAA compliant video conferencing (Zoom) or in-office (in person) formats.

Consultation Groups:

Consultation for Certification Groups:

  • There are numerous Consultation groups for clinicians working toward their EMDR Certification that meet once a month on various days of the week.

  • Group options are in-person groups or video conference groups that meet via Zoom.

  • There are options for one or two hour consultation groups.

  • Some groups are closed groups, others are open.  Closed groups run in a more structured fashion and each meeting builds upon the meeting prior to that, so attendance at all meetings is recommended.

Consultation for Certification Groups for Clinicians that Specialize in Work with Children:

  • There are special modifications that are often made in work with children.  These consultation groups discuss those specifics and help clinicians master the art of integrating EMDR therapy into their work with kids.

Ongoing Consultant in Training Consultation Groups:  Become an Approved Consultant. Learn to run groups, and provide EMDR Consultation.
If interested, please contact Tamra Hughes at 303-221-1272 ext. 1.


Individual Consultation:

Meet one-on-one for one-hour or two-hour increments.

  • We will review your specific cases

  • Discuss case conceptualization

  • Cover advanced application of EMDR therapy

  • Further your understanding of screening for dissociation

  • Deepen understanding of assessing and addressing attachment wounds

  • Ensure appropriate application of all 8 phases of the EMDR therapy protocol.

Becoming trained in EMDR therapy requires receiving ten hours of consultation.  EMDR Center of the Rockies includes this consultation in their EMDR therapy training.

Following completion of EMDR therapy training, it is strongly encouraged that clinicians continue on to become Certified EMDR therapists.

This involves receiving an additional twenty hours of consultation with an Approved Consultant in addition to their clinical work.

EMDR Center of the Rockies  provides consultation for those therapists who need consultation to complete their EMDR therapy training,  and we welcome clinicians who have been trained through another provider. 

Additionally, we provide consultation for clinicians who have just completed EMDR therapy training and for those who have been utilizing it in their practices and are just seeking to deepen their understanding of it, or for those who are seeking EMDR Certification or EMDR Approved Consultant status.

During consultation for certification, we will review:

  • EMDR protocol

  • Advanced applications of EMDR protocol

  • Addressing Complex PTSD and Dissociation with EMDR protocol

  • Integration of the protocol into specific cases

  • Theoretical context

  • Case conceptualization

  • Target selection and sequencing

  • Proper assessment for EMDR readiness

  • Address any other questions or concerns that arise during EMDR sessions.
