Sept. 2019 Trainee:
“Sue is a beautiful teacher inside and out. Her passion for teaching definitely shows as she fosters a safe space for individuals in their learning. The warmth, love, and compassion that she radiates for her work with clients has also been a blessing to witness. Her desire to keep growing in her personal and professional life and encouragement of trainee’s to work on self-development is also much appreciated.
The comprehensive EMDR training was a great fit for my personality as I enjoyed group sharing in an intimate space with my peers. In addition, having the opportunity to watch a full demo of the EMDR process really helped me solidify and integrate my learning of the protocol in a way that makes sense. Lastly, observing Sue facilitate a session and debriefing as a group provided me with confidence in beginning to apply EMDR with my own clients. I am excited about the journey ahead in continuing to learn this modality with such a skilled teacher and therapist! “
