“If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path” – Siddartha Gautama
Tricia Gagnon is a Licensed Professional Counselor Board Supervisor, Certified EMDR Therapist and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant in Training for EMDR Psychotherapy. She also trains therapists in EMDR Basic Training and does group consultations with Compassionworks. Tricia offers consultation towards EMDRIA certification, as well as case consultation for therapists of all backgrounds that simply wish to discuss a case, or learn new approaches that may “crack the case”. There are many paths to get to the outcomes we want for our clients.
Tricia has special interests and training in the integration of EMDR with somatic approaches to healing trauma, such as (IFS) Internal Family Systems, trauma-informed yoga, & mindfulness. Tricia provides clear feedback along with demonstrations and enjoys collaborating with consultees on how to best serve the unique possibilities found in each client-therapist relationship. She particularly enjoys helping therapists with their own reactivity with clients so that the work can be more productive and satisfying.
For therapists seeking consultation to discuss cases, or in growing their own private practice, sessions are offered on an individual basis for $100/session. Consultation can be in person, by video, or by phone.
EMDR Specific Consultation
Tricia strongly believes in EMDR’s ability to make a difference in the lives of clients and loves supporting other therapists to become EMDRIA certified, a consultant-in-training, or a consultant themselves. The emphasis during EMDR consultation is on conceptualizing each case from the foundation of the standard protocol, and utilizing specialized protocols and other methods when necessary. You will find an environment where questions and mistakes are expected, and welcomed, as opportunities for growth and learning.
During the consultation, consultees will be required to provide video recordings of their sessions to be used for their own individual educational purposes. She will review this process, along with all of the other requirements for certification during the first consultation meeting. For your reference, here is the link to the requirements for certification through EMDRIA.

“Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.” -Richard Bach
