Katelyn JakubovicClinical Therapist
For the first time, I met trainers who teach EMDR Therapy while integrating embodiment, creative techniques, mindfulness meditations, and all on TeleHealth!! I had transforming experiences personally during my own EMDR processing and learned how to utilize the standard EMDR protocol. Now, I am using EMDR Therapy with Sandtray Therapy and reaching new goals in my business! Thank you Jamie & ICM!
Thank you ICM for sharing the remarkable, life-changing gift of EMDR therapy! I can't emphasize enough how my learning through ICM (trainings, Jamie's webinars, videos, etc.), and its incredibly supportive community, has been a complete game changer for me both personally and professionally. Truly grateful, and as we often say in EMDR sessions, I'll "just go with that!".
Elyan RosenbaumMHC-LP, NCC
The ability to learn EMDR virtually was truly a transformative process. Through ICM, I have
developed needed clinical skills and gained a network of amazing, trauma-informed clinicians
that are passionate about providing top-notch care. The combination of mindfulness techniques
with the standard EMDR protocol has been a game changer in my practice, providing much
needed healing for those in which I serve. Thank you, Dr. Marich and Staff!
David LikensM.S., LPC-S
Dr. Jamie Marich has designed an EMDR training that is nothing shy of AMAZING! As the Founder of the "only" Therapist of Color Collaborative in the State of Colorado, being trained by someone who could help digest what is a very scripted protocol, and make it more culturally relevant was imperative. She did so with ease, patience, AND a bang up team of EMDR Trainers!
Rossina Schroeer-SantiagoMA, LPC, NCC, GCDF, CIGT
The Institute for Creative Mindfulness' trainings have been pivotal in my career and my personal healing and growth path. EMDR therapy training has equipped me to be a competent trauma therapist - something that, in my opinion, is an ethical imperative for anyone working in the mental health field. The ICM consultants and practitioner community keeps me growing in my skills and knowledge, as well as supported by a vast and diverse community of professionals.
