Are you a mental health professional interested in consultation either individually or in a group setting? Consultation might include the integration of EMDR therapy into your work with clients, steps toward certification as an EMDR Therapist, your clinical work in general or specific cases/clients/populations, self of the therapist issues, the integration of EMDR therapy with other modalities and/or with specific populations, or the business of owning a private practice. Whatever your goals, we have a team of clinicians who are EMDRIA-Approved Consultants or Consultants-in-Training who would be happy to support you. Each of the Consultants below are experienced EMDR clinicians who provide facilitation and consultation for our EMDRIA-Approved trainings.

Cassie Hammond, LCSW
EMDR Certified Therapist & EMDRIA Approved Consultant
I love supporting EMDR clinicians to hold a healthy respect for the standard protocol while helping them deeply attune to their clients’ individual readiness and unique needs. This way, incorporating other EMDR protocols and treatment interventions can happen more seamlessly throughout the 8 phases. Areas of experience: I've conducted EMDR (in both Spanish and English) with complex trauma cases in a community mental health setting with children and teens ages 6+, as well as with teens and adults with complex trauma in private practice. I have additional training in AEDP, EFT, Somatic Psychology, and Psychedelic/MDMA-Assisted therapy and integration. So, I work to help Consultees better “embed” EMDR within other crucial modalities like parts work, somatic therapy, and attachment injury work, within a relational framework.

The Road Less Traveled Counseling Center & Denver Collaborative Health Center
Semi-retiring in 2021 from a 35-year career in Healthcare Administration, I deeply craved a better life/work balance (yes, in that order). Joining The Road Less Traveled Counseling team has been an honor and has been reenergizing. As a former EMDR client, I know firsthand the power of EMDR therapy, so I’m thrilled to be a small part of this larger purpose. I have a masters degree in Management and a bachelors degree in Business Administration. In my spare time, I love to learn, travel and be outdoors with my husband and two dogs.
Please email me if you have questions about individual consultation with one of our team members.

as an EMDR Therapist
Completion of an EMDRIA-Approved EMDR Basic Training is the first step toward EMDR Certification (see www.emdria.org for information about EMDR Certification). Elizabeth Legg, PhD, LPC, NCC with The Road Less Traveled Counseling Center is an EMDRIA-Approved Training Provider. The EMDR Basic Training (Parts I and II) is an EMDRIA-Approved training and the EMDR Therapy Refresher has been approved for a total of 15 EMDRIA Credits (8 credits for the Part I On Demand portion and 7 credits for the Part II In Person Practicum portion).
Certification Criteria (Summarized from the EMDRIA website 2023—visit www.EMDRIA.org for updates): Those who are interested in applying for the EMDR Certification credential must have a masters or doctoral degree in counseling, social work, psychology, marriage family therapy, medicine or nursing from an accredited college or university and must meet the following criteria:
1. EMDR International Association Approved EMDR Training: Provide a copy of your final certificate of completion of an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Training program.
2. License/Certification: Provide a copy of your current license to practice independently as a mental health professional in the state or province where you practice. The license must include the current expiration date.
3. Notarized Statement of Practice and EMDR Experience
Do you have at least two years of experience in your field of license?
Have you conducted at least 50 EMDR sessions with at least 25 clients?
Both statements may be included in one single notarized document. Applicants can simply state, “I have at least 2 years experience in my field of license and I have conducted at least 50 EMDR therapy sessions with at least 25 clients” or similar wording and then have it notarized.
4. 20 Hours of Consultation by an EMDR Consultant in EMDR: Provide documentation from the EMDR Consultant(s) who provided EMDR consultation to you. It must specify the exact number of consultation hours you received and designate how many of those hours were individual consultation and how many were group consultation. Find an EMDR Consultant
Be sure to review the Consultation Packet and become familiar with the consultation process.
The 20 hours of consultation must have been completed within the last 5 years. If you continue to receive consultation hours for over a 5 year period, then as long as the EMDR Consultant is able to explain in the letter of documentation when the consultation started and ended (e.g. 2013-2022) and if/when long breaks in consultation occurred that will be acceptable. We understand that clinicians may stop consultation and then restart again but we cannot accept consultation hours that concluded 5 or more years ago.
If you have received consultation from more than one EMDR Consultant, you will need documentation from each one.
At least 10 of the hours must be obtained through individual, EMDR-focused consultation. The remaining 10 hours may be obtained through small group consultation. Consultation groups cannot exceed more than eight participants at a time.
EMDR Consultants-in-Training can provide up to 15 hours of consultation. The remaining five hours must be provided by an EMDR Consultant.
Only consultation hours received after completion of an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Training program can be applied towards this requirement.
5. EMDR Consultant Letter(s) of Recommendation for EMDR Certification: Provide letter(s) from one or more EMDR Consultant(s) addressing your utilization of EMDR with clients and recommending you to be certified in EMDR.
Letters may include documentation of consultation hours as required in #4 above. If that's the case, upload the same document for both requirements on the application.
Letters from EMDR Consultants-in-Training do not meet this requirement. Letters must be from an EMDR Consultant.
6. Letters of Recommendation Regarding Professional Practice: Provide two letters of recommendation regarding your professional utilization of EMDR, ethics in practice, and professional character.
These letters may be from colleagues or peers.
Letters from your EMDR Consultant or EMDR Consultant-in-Training do not count as peer letters.
Two letters of recommendation from colleagues or peers are required.
7. 12 Hours of EMDRIA Credits: Provide certificates of completion for at least 12 hours of EMDRIA Credits (continuing education in EMDR). Find EMDRIA Credit workshops and programs.
Only EMDRIA Credit Programs in EMDR obtained after the completion of EMDR Training may be used towards this requirement. Initial EMDR Trainings are not awarded EMDRIA Credits.
Certificates of completion of EMDRIA Credits hours should include the EMDRIA program approval number and the number of credits earned.
8. EMDR International Association Policies Agreement: By submitting the EMDR Certification application, applicants attest that they agree to adhere to EMDRIA Policies.
