Crossing the River

Consultation

Are you a therapist looking for group consultation that can be used toward EMDRIA certification or basic training hours?


Starting November, I have openings in my groups every first Friday of the month at 8:30am EST, and every second Monday of the month at 8:00am and 9:00am EST. Session dates and times will be confirmed in blocks and every attempt will be made to keep sessions on a regular schedule. 


Consultees pay $80 CAD for a 1 hour group, and payment for a session is expected even if you cannot attend. I’m asking for a commitment of at least six months from the first session. I can also offer individual sessions as well.


Groups meet via Zoom, and may include discussion of specific cases, treatment planning, and general therapy, with a polyvagal theory and EMDR focus. 

I’m a Registered Social Worker with a Master of Social Work, fully trained in EMDR by Roy Kiessling of EMDR Solutions, and have undertaken additional EMDR-related training from Dr. Ignacio Jarero, Kathy Steele, and Ana Gomez.  I completed further training in areas such as ego state therapy, dissociation, polyvagal theory, and the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP). I participate in regular clinical consultation with Robin Shapiro and Steven Buchheit.  As an EMDRIA Consultant-in-Training, I have a private practice in Ottawa, Ontario that specializes in trauma and currently work with civilian and military adults, and have previous clinical experience working with children and adolescents. 


Please send me an email Krista@HelmanCounselling.com and let me know which time works best for you and I’ll send you an agreement to sign to secure your spot. Spots will fill up as responses come in. 


I look forward to hearing from you!
