Introducing The Center for Excellence in EMDR Therapy

The Center combines all the field’s clinical wisdom around trauma treatment and transformation into a comprehensive healing therapy. We integrate interpersonal neurobiology, somatic processes, and attachment theory in an EMDR therapy framework. Our training is offered at all levels— from Basic EMDR training to Intermediate and Advanced EMDR therapy trainings.  Also, for those who have completed some advanced trainings, we offer EMDR Master classes and training retreats. Our goal, as an EMDR training center, is to teach you how to successfully practice EMDR therapy.  We prepare you to work with clients of different backgrounds, cultures and presenting issues.

An EMDR Training Center Promoting the Power of EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy memory processing taps into our bodies’ inherent ability to move towards health and healing. It works with the neurophysiology of memory by bringing our present awareness to past experiences that continue to be disturbing. Using EMDR therapy procedures, clients reprocess traumatic memories in a way that allows them to relate to what happened in the past while remaining in the present.

Finally, the EMDR therapy approach to treating complex trauma and many other challenging presentations allows for transformational healing without overwhelming or retraumatizing clients. So instead of reliving old hurts when a current situation resembles a past traumatic experience, your clients can stay steady in the present without being triggered by memories of past traumatic events. As a result, they can respond adaptively to present life situations rather than simply react.  That makes life challenges easier to navigate and opens up a future filled with new possibilities for clients.

We Are a Mission-Driven EMDR Training Center

As therapists, we are all dedicated to helping our clients heal and thrive.  We are equally committed to refining our craft. In pursuit of excellence, we sign up for trainings, work toward certifications and seek to expand our knowledge, skills, and resources.  We want to deepen our capacities as healers. We strive to bring our best selves to our work so we seek opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Center was established to meet all those needs with a full range of training pathways to include EMDRIA basic certification as well as the Center’s new EMDR Master-level certification program.  We now have a growing community of highly motivated and skilled EMDR therapists.

EMDR Therapy is uniquely transformative.

Train with Skilled EMDR Faculty, Led by Deany Laliotis

The Center’s Founder and Director, Deany Laliotis, has been practicing EMDR since it was first introduced 30 years ago.  She worked closely with the founder of EMDR, Dr. Francine Shapiro, and served as the Director of Training of her EMDR Institute for many years. In that role, she fostered the evolution of EMDR from a technique to an integrative healing approach now called EMDR therapy. Following Dr. Shapiro’s passing in 2020, Deany launched her own EMDR training center.

So far, she has successfully sold out eight EMDRIA-approved complete basic EMDR trainings a year. Her intermediate and advanced EMDR trainings cover a broad range of topics—from healing attachment injuries to refining the craft of EMDR—and they draw therapists from around the world. Deany has invited some of the field’s most skilled and talented EMDR therapists to join her as training facilitators, consultants and faculty for this unique EMDR training center. The faculty and consultants have trained with Deany intensively. As a team, they set a new standard for training therapists in the art and science of EMDR Therapy.
