"As an anti-racist political activist I move primarily in BIPOC spaces. As a therapist I move primarily in white spaces. This training is a model for other modalities, EFT, IFS, DBT, CBT, ACT, etc., to not only denounce racism but to take action in multiple ways."
José Alfaro, LCSW LCSW, anti-racist political activist
"With the EMDR training scholarship discount I was able to help my therapy scholarship clients and even got to support Iranian therapists who are holding so much for their clients these days."
Dr. Hannah Alla JoharchiFounder, Soft Heart Psychology
"During my EMDR training, Dr. Jamie and ICM underscored that everyone has an experience somewhere along the dissociative spectrum. Their inclusivity nurtured my plural identity, and I could be myself without fear of judgment, whispers, or laughter. Their profound acceptance and respect made me feel seen, valued, and appreciated as a professional."
"ICM was one of the most well organized and engaging training platforms I have utilized. It allowed me to obtain a basic foundation in EMDR Therapy and bring the modality to a population of clients that otherwise wouldn’t have access to."
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."
