Transform Your Therapy Practice with EMDR

Whether you are a student intern or a seasoned professional, the Connect team can take you from learning the basics of EMDR Therapy to EMDR Certification and mastery of advanced clinical skills. We provide a full range of both in-person and web-based training and consultations. 

As a mental health professional, you know that the effectiveness of any psychotherapy depends largely on the connection between therapist and client.

We believe the same is true for professional training and consultation.

A great training brings information to life and fosters important new connections with peers, mentors…even global organizations that keep you plugged into the latest research and evidence-based treatment evolutions. 

Our cohesive team is proud of the deep relationships we’ve built with graduate programs, community agencies, treatment centers, and private practitioners in Florida and around the world. We thrive on helping individuals and organizations reach their goals through tailored training and consultation experiences. We’d love to welcome you to our global community of healers!

Book A Training

EMDR Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that has helped millions of children, teens, and adults reduce suffering and restore hope. More than 30 positive controlled research studies support the benefits of EMDR for depression, PTSD, and more.

EMDR Therapy offers a flexible and comprehensive approach to understanding and treating the basis of current dysfunction. It can dramatically reduce or eliminate disturbing symptoms, distressing emotions, and unwanted behaviors…while fostering positive new perspectives and increased resilience.  EMDR therapists help clients heal past wounds, eliminate current triggers, and prepare for future success.
