Welcome to Thrive Training & Publications, LLC's EMDR Certified Therapist process. I am so glad that you have decided to take this next step in your EMDR career! This will give you some guidance and information on my approach to the EMDR Certification Consultation process and point you toward the resources you will need to be successful. The goal of certification is for you to grow in your overall EMDR competency and confidence.

STOP HERE if you do not have your document of completion from your Basic EMDR Training. You must provide me with this document prior to beginning or signing up for this course.

APPROVED CONSULTANT. Your EMDR Approved Consultant will be Chris Floro.  You must complete a minimum of 5 hours with me in order to get a memo to EMDRIA documenting your consultation hours with me. 

CONSULTATION. Consultation is typically offered only on Thursdays but at different times. You may want to talk with me prior to signing your agreement to ensure that our schedules will match up. Often you will be put with one (1) other person seeking certification to broaden the experience. Certification is more intense than basic training consultation, so be prepared for more in-depth looks at your work in each phase by submitting audio or video recordings.

SIGNUP GENIUS. You will be provided with Signup Genius access so that you can sign up for available hours for certification consultation. Please be sure to create your own (free) account so that you can make changes to the appointments you schedule for us. The No Show fee is $50. I’m happy to report that to date no therapist seeking certification consultation has no showed! At the very least, text me when things come up.

PREPARATION. You will be expected to come prepared with case summaries and audio or video recordings for the clients you present along with points of discussion and questions you have about your work. Bring your most difficult cases, not the ones that make you look good! Please use provided examples of case summaries as guides.

RECORDINGS. It is helpful but not mandatory that you provide your case summaries and audio recordings a minimum of 48 hours in advance. This allows the Consultant to be prepared for your cases. Please work hard to be prepared so you get the most out of your consultation. If you are technologically challenged, please email your Consultant a test audio file prior to your first consultation to work out any bugs. The best audio file formats are “.mp3” or “.m4a”.

TELECONFERENCING. Consultation will be done on Zoom, a HIPAA compliant teleconferencing platform. 

COSTS. Costs are specified and I offer payment plans. You payment plan can be selected when you register for the course.  Essentially you have two options.

  • Option 1 - Pay full price with all applicable discounts at once.

  • Option 2 - Payment plan of 5 equal payments.  

FORMS. All your forms can be found in the lessons of this course after you complete registration and pay.  Specific forms you will need to submit (upload in the certification course) prior to beginning include:

  • Current Professional License Validation
  • Signed Certification Contract Agreement
  • Initial EMDR Training Document of Completion from EMDRIA Approved Training
  • Signed Certification Criteria Acknowledgment Form


INITIAL MEETING. Your first meeting with your me will not be a consultation but rather a review of all your documents and goals pertaining to becoming an EMDR Certified Therapist. This is simply to make sure you and we are in agreement with expectations and desired outcomes.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  You can email Chris at cfloro@thrive-pllc.com
