Comments from Evaluations of Past Workshops:

“This was one of the best organized and informational trainings I have attended.  I appreciate the practicum and how you laid everything out for us to use in practice immediately.  Thank you Hope-you are inspiring!” -Online Webinar 2020

“Hope is an outstanding communicator thanks to her organized mind and wry sense of humor. Her presentation style is especially natural, and she takes great care to inject variety into the overall two-day structure—moving seamlessly from demonstration, to videos, to guest presenters, etc.—ensuring participants remain engaged throughout. Hope has a real gift for doing this work.”-Online Webinar 2020

“I have been to many trainings and workshops for EMDR Clinicians and this was by far the best. Well prepared and I can use what I learned right away.” – New Jersey 2019

“Both Hope and Kate were willing to teach, not just from their successes, but from their mistakes/missteps. This willingness to demonstrate expertise and vulnerability is such a powerful combo and tends, in the modeling, to infuse more clinical and personal confidence in the learner.” -DC 2019

“Your work is inspiring. It really helps me feel more confident in creating a treatment plan in collaboration with my clients.” – EMDR Canada Conference, Banff 2017
