Laura Fontaine is an EMDRIA certified therapist and Approved Consultant and also an approved clinical supervisor through the AZBBHE. I provide individual and small group supervision for therapists who are working towards licensure.
For EMDR therapists, I provide consultation for those working towards certification or Approved Consultant status with EMDRIA and general consultation for those who want or need additional support. EMDR consultation can be either individual or group.
I enjoy being able to help other therapists build their skills and confidence. I especially like assisting newly trained EMDR therapists figure out how to incorporate EMDR into their practice, build their confidence, increase their ability to better assess for and identify dissociation, and conceptualize cases from the Adaptive Information Processing perspective.
While my bias tends to be towards the AIP model that EMDR is based on and I help therapists to better understand the model, refine their technique, and remain faithful to the model, the supervision I provide is not a replacement for the consultation a therapist needs to complete their training nor is it a replacement for the consultation needed for certification. Consultation is not a replacement for the supervision needed for licensure. Supervision for licensure and EMDR consultation are separate and distinct services.
