Meet Deany Laliotis, Founder of The Center
I’m Deany Laliotis and I am passionate about the power of EMDR therapy to transform lives. Since 1993, I have had the privilege of working very closely with Dr. Francine Shapiro, the originator of EMDR, I was the Director of Training for the EMDR Institute, the training program developed by Dr. Shapiro that trained clinicians all over the world. My husband, Dan Merlis was also on the teaching faculty of the EMDR Institute. We have trained thousands of EMDR therapists over the years and now run a Center for EMDR therapy training, headquartered in Washington DC.
EMDR Is an Integrated Psychotherapy for Transformational Healing
I travel all over the US and abroad, teaching therapists how to apply EMDR therapy as a comprehensive relational psychotherapy. I focus on the treatment of complex trauma, healing wounds of attachment and other challenging presentations. In this EMDR video tutorial, I unpack all the elements that are part of EMDR Therapy—attachment theory, somatic therapy, parts work, the therapeutic relationship and more. Then I explain how they work together with EMDR to offer clients transformational healing that lasts.

Introducing the Center for Excellence in EMDR Therapy TrainingIt was their enthusiasm for my approach and their expressed desire for a path to professional and personal development that inspired me to establish a new center for EMDR therapy training and certification. The Center offers a complete continuum of EMDR trainings—from EMDRIA-approved basic to a variety of advanced and specialty trainings and finally to EMDR Master-level courses and retreats.
