Professional Consultation Services
For clinicians that have completed their Basic Training and are interested in becoming a Certified EMDR Therapist. (You can read about my journey here.)
Jen Taylor is an EMDR Consultant-in-Training (CIT). I am actively learning and working through the process to become an EMDR Approved Consultant with Alyssa Caldbeck, LISW, RPT. I am accepting a very limited number of clinicians as part of this process. If you are EMDR trained and are interested in becming EMDR certified, please email me at email@example.com
"A CIT can provide a maximum of 15 hours of consultation to an EMDR trained clinician who is working towards EMDRIA Certification. EMDRIA Certification applicants must obtain 20 hours of consultation on their use of EMDR with clients. The remaining 5 hours of consultation must come from an Approved Consultant. Although a CIT can provide a letter of recommendation for the consultee seeking certification, a letter of recommendation from an Approved Consultant is required for EMDRIA Certification applicants."
*Note, you will be required to have an Approved Consultant before we begin our consultation process together. I can assist you in finding an Approved Consultant, if needed.
For EMDR: You will want o be sure that your training and consultation is approved by Emdria. It is important to keep all of the information regarding your initial training and consultation fro the Basic Training. Also, please keep accurate logs of the number of clients and sessions in which you are using EMDR.
If you are currently receiving consultation and are looking for EMDR resources, find them here.
Play Therapy Consultation Services:
For those interested in becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) or for clinicians struggling with challenging play therapy cases.
Play Therapy Consultation
Jen Taylor is a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor. I am not not currently providing group consultation services. If you are working towards your RPT credential or are interested in an individual consultation regarding a difficult case, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss. You can search for a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor in the Directory available through the Association for Play Therapy.
For PLAY THERAPY: Everything begins and ends with the Association for Play Therapy. Visit APT's website and review the guides. The requirements have changed and I encourage you to start your journey by calling APT directly to discuss your situation.
If you are unsure about your graduate level transcripts, I recommend paying the fee to APT and requesting a transcript review. You want to know if you need any additional graduate level coursework before committing to play therapy supervision.
Research potential supervisors and look for clinicians that have the RPT-S (Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor) designation. This designation was required beginning in January 2020 and also means that the clinician has more play therapy experience and training.
If you are currently receiving consultation and are looking for play therapy resources, find them here.
Individual vs. Group Consultation
We can discuss which services are best suited for your professional goals and current situation/resources. You can read more about choosing a supervisor here.
Contact me to schedule a brief phone call to determine if we are a good fit for consultation.
My consultation sessions employ active discussions of many different theoretical orientations and models. My primary influences are from training that I have completed and include:
EMDR | Internal Family Systems/Parts | Attachment-Based
Child Centered Play Therapy | Synergetic Play Therapy |Developmental Play Therapy |
Common Questions About Individual Consultation?
How does the play session review work?
This is my favorite consultation session by far! You will get consent from your client to videotape a full session for the purposes of consultation only. You can share your video directly through the platform (no sending it to me or worrying about how to transfer it) and then we watch it together. We will pause periodically to discuss what you did well and areas that you could grow in the future.
*Note: If this is required, it will be discussed in advance of your meeting time.
Is there a limit on individual consultation?
No, you could choose to get all of your required play therapy or EMDR consultation in an individual format.
What are the fees for individual consultation?
Consultation rates vary depending on the time required. A credit card is required to book your appointment; however, you are not charged until our session is completed. You will be charged the full session fee if you do not cancel or reschedule within 24 hours of your appointment.
How long are the individual meetings?
Typically, individual supervision is scheduled for one hour. However, we can discuss variations to that schedule to meet your needs.
Common Questions About Group Consultation?
Where are the meetings?
All group consultation meetings are held through secure video conferencing online. I am not providing group play therapy consultation at this time. If you are interested in joining a group for play therapy or EMDR consultation, please email me to discuss further at email@example.com
When are the meetings?
I am not providing play therapy group consulation at this time. EMDR groups are scheduled for 2 hours based on the needs of the participants. Please email me if you are interested in joining an EMDR group.
Who can attend group consultation?
To attend individual or group consultation, you must be a licensed mental health professional. This includes social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, school social workers, and other related disciplines. I am not currently providing any supervision or consultation for unlicensed clinicians.
Can I get all of my hours in group consultation only?
No. The Association for Play Therapy and Emdria each have limits to the number of hours that can be obtained in groups.
How many people are in each group?
A maximum of 8 participants can participate in a group session. However, typically, there are 3-4 participants in each session.
How can I view the schedule of the available sessions?
Please email Jen Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss group consultation
But we are in different time zones, doesn't it get confusing?
No! Yes, I am in Hawaii and you are probably not in Hawaii. And finding times that work with people who live all across the country can be challenging. When you schedule an appointment, you will input your time zone and the system will automatically convert all of my available meetings to your time zone. And all of your reminders are personalized for your time zone too. (No counting on your fingers to figure out when the meeting will be).
