Introducing The Center for Excellence in EMDR Therapy

This forward-thinking EMDR training center combines all the field’s clinical wisdom around trauma treatment and transformation into a comprehensive healing therapy. The Center’s EMDR training approach integrates interpersonal neurobiology, somatic processes, parts work and attachment theory in an EMDR therapy framework. The Center offers EMDR training at all levels— from Basic EMDR therapy training to Advanced to EMDR Master classes and training retreats. Our goal, as an EMDR training center, is to prepare you to successfully practice EMDR therapy with clients of different backgrounds and cultures who present a broad range of life 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.

Most importantly, our EMDR training center’s integrative approach allows for transformative healing without the risk of overwhelming or retraumatizing clients.

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 in the present, untriggered by past traumatic events and can make choices that are best for them in the moment. That makes present-day 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, resources and to deepen our capacities as healers. We want to bring our best selves to our work with our clients. So we look for the best opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Center was established to meet all those needs with a full range of training, pathways to EMDRIA certification, a new EMDR Master-level certification program and a growing community of highly motivated EMDR therapists.

EMDR Therapy is uniquely transformative.

Train with Skilled EMDR Faculty, Led by Deany Laliotis

Our EMDR training 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 for the EMDR Institute for 20 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 basic EMDR trainings a year. Her 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. All have trained with Deany intensively. As a team, they set a new standard for training therapists in the art and science of EMDR Therapy.
