Consultation & Supervision
JaCarie is a Certified EMDR therapist and Consultant-In-Training. JaCarie has experience with children and adults experiencing complex trauma, childhood trauma, birth trauma and attachment issues. JaCarie provides consultation to newly trained or “seasoned” EMDR clinicians that are wanting to increase their knowledge and skill. JaCarie provides individual and group consultations for individuals working toward certification.
EMDRIA Certification Requirements: To be an EMDRIA Certified Therapist, you must complete an additional 20 hours of consultation (beyond your 10 hours of basic training).
A maximum of 10 of these 20 hours can be completed through group consultation.
**As a Consultant-In-Training, I will only be allowed to provided up to 15 hours for certification.***
In consultation, the focus is to ensure you understand the steps of EMDR while strengthening your skills in resourcing, treatment planning and case conceptualization under AIP Theory.
Currently, consultation sessions are held solely online, unless discussed with JaCarie.
Consultation is not supervision. Supervision implies that the “supervisor” has primary responsibility for the client’s outcome in treatment. In some states, the supervisee can only practice under the license of the “supervisor.” The supervisor carries a legal, ethical, and clinical responsibility/liability for the supervisee. In contrast, consultation is a collaborative relationship between two mental health professionals. The Consultant values the integrity and independence of the individual who is consulting with her or him. The Consultee maintains primary responsibility for the decisions involving treatment for his or her client. Therefore, the Consultant only offers information, suggestions, and other considerations regarding the utilization of EMDR therapy and never makes demands of the Consultee beyond the Consultant’s domain.
