Clinical Consultation

Psychodynamic Supervision:

I offer individual and group consultation for those interested in psychodynamic clinical supervision and consultation.  My theoretical background is in attachment and object relations work. I have supervised doctoral and post-doctoral students at the Wright Institute, and at California Pacific Medical Center, Department of Psychiatry on child, adolescent, and adult cases.  My aim is to deepen your theoretical understanding and treatment considerations.

EMDR Consultation: Individual and Group: 

As a EMDRIA and Parnell Institute Approved Consultant, I offer consultation to licensed professionals.  I am open to meet with consultees in my office in San Francisco or to meet by phone for those who live outside of the Bay Area and within the United States.  I hold weekly or bi-monthly individual and group consultation to those who are in the midst of taking or who have completed Part I and Part II Basic Training prior to enrolling in Part III  (10 Hours Individual Consultation or 10 Hours Group Practicum) and to those interested in deepening their work or collecting hours towards EMDR Certification and approved consultancy. I am Trained and Certified by Laurel Parnell, Ph.D.  Additionally, I am a facilitator for her Attachment Focused-EMDR Trainings. Full Member: EMDRIA-Approved Consultant.

Individual Consultation:

I provide individual consultation to therapists who have completed Part 1 and Part 2, Basic Training and are collecting their hours prior to enrolling in Part 3.  Additionally, I consult to therapists who have completed their Basic Training and are either collecting hours towards Certification or who wish to hone their EMDR skill set.  I am willing to meet in my office or by phone.  I provide a safe, spacious and attentive place in which to present your cases.  I help support you in integrating EMDR into your practice. I ask that consultees prepare their cases in advance of our meeting and include a thorough client history and session process notes.  I am happy to review the theory and science behind trauma recovery as well as resource development and installation, targeting and interweaves. All questions are welcome.

Group Consultation:

I consult with small groups of pre and post licensed therapists (2-5 people) in my San Francisco, California office.  I am willing to include one member of the group via telephone or Skype.  The purpose of the group is to provide a safe place to ask questions, seek clarification with difficult cases, illuminate protocols and procedures, help with resource development and installation, targeting and interweaves.  I will assist the group in thinking outside the box for challenging cases such as with addictions, traumas related to combat and sexual abuse.  Groups will meet every two weeks for two hours or once a month for two hours depending on the group size and goals. Groups tend to provide a significant source of support, resources and become a referral system to EMDR therapists after completing the various parts of the training.
