Do you use EMDR with the couples you work with, or is this only used for individual therapy?
[Justin Pere answering] I don't typically incorporate the EMDR approach into couples work; however, my knowledge and training in EMDR absolutely informs and aids my work with couples in various ways. I have also done individual EMDR work with the partner present, which can be a profound experience for the observing partner to further empathize, understand, and connect with their husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend as both are present to witness past pain being transformed and healed.
I am also well connected with the EMDR community in the Seattle area and can provide referrals for some wonderful EMDR therapists nearby who can do the individual EMDR work for a member of a couple currently working with Clarity Counseling.
