EMDR Certification

Are you interested in getting certified in EMDR?

EMDR certification with me is a structured process that will ensure expertise with the standard protocol.

Please see EMDRIA requirements regarding expectations for full certification. It is generally recommended that you will have been using EMDR with a broad range of clients for a minimum of six months or longer before becoming certified. This allows for maximum hours of practice and consultation before certification.

EMDR Experience

Crystal has had the wonderful privilege of learning from some of the best trauma therapists in the EMDR  communities. These distinguished therapists include: Dr. Andrew Leeds (Resource Development Installation),  Dr. AJ Popky (DeTUR urge Addiction Protocol),  Katie O’Shea (Early Trauma Protocol), Dr, Patricia Wilensky ( Death File) and Dr. Marshall Wilensky (Approved EMDR Trainer in Canada and the  USA since 1998). She recently has had the great honour to work directly with Dr. Ignacio Jarero using his protocol for group work with displaced persons of war. Crystal has deployed this protocol for the past several months working with displaced women and children from the Ukraine war.

Having worked at a primary care health clinic on the downtown eastside of Vancouver, Crystal has used EMDR with a wide variety of patients. This includes individuals suffering from substance use, survivors of residential schools, dissociative disorders, and childhood trauma.   

In addition, Crystal has had extensive experience treating trauma using EMDR with first responders, police officers, and the military at the BC Operational Stress Injury Clinic.  Combined with regular EMDR sessions, she developed a one-week intensive EMDR program that effectively managed and treated operational PTSD using EMDR.
