Through empowering and creative EMDR trainings, we inspire therapists.

We transform the lives of therapists and their clients by empowering therapists to transform their clients’ lives with EMDR.

Within a fun, safe, and supportive environment, therapists harness their inner genius as they explore new transformative skills.

We help therapists get to where they’re going.

Our Culture

EMDR Educators operates by eight core principles that are infused in everything we do. They are as follows:



What does authenticity mean to us? It means being free of feelings of inferiority.  We believe that no one can harbor feelings of inferiority and doubt and be authentic. Inferiority and doubt create a false sense of the true self, called the inauthentic self.

We specialize in providing EMDR training sessions that serve as a safe and supportive environment for all learners. In our experience, the result of this focus is that inferiority and doubt are not afforded room in the skill-building process. They’re simply crowded out. And, if by rare chance they appear, our approach is to normalize and accept it as temporary growing pains. We never allow it to be turned into criticism.

EMDR therapists cannot bring a client to a place they do not know – they must first take the journey themselves. After all, authenticity is the journey the therapist accompanies the client on. It’s both a destination and starting place — an alpha and omega moment. Clients will leave their inauthentic selves. Only then can true life begin.

Our role is to be your travel companion, helping you discover, experience, and familiarize yourself with the path you must guide your clients on.



We take pride in the fact that EMDR training that’s enjoyable, inspiring, and safe is our signature. All of our EMDR training classes feature a relaxed-yet-professional atmosphere that nurtures the therapists’ feeling of empowerment.

With us, each trainee will feel empowered to use their new EMDR treatment skills within the context of being who they are. And from what we’ve seen, that lasting sense of confidence enriches the competency of the EMDR therapists who graduate through us. 



Just as you have to first accept your clients where they are if your goal is to help them get to where they are going, we accept you where you are in your career and are driven to help you get to where you are going, 

There is freedom in acceptance. Accepting yourself and your work by being authentically “you” both in and out of sessions makes a big difference in your practice.

None of us can achieve transformation without finding a space of flexibility and acceptance. You’ll find acceptance here.



As Dr. Dobo put it,

“Consultees have said to me while they are in session with their clients, “I can hear Dr. Dobo’s voice saying….” Perhaps my age and life experience affords me an understanding of the struggle in mastering a new art. I have this down with a calm, peaceful, and encouraging affectation.”

If you want your skill as an EMDR therapist refined by someone with a deep passion and unique wisdom for the mastery of this powerful therapeutic approach, you’ll find it here with us.



You learn best when you feel supported. As Dr. Dobo said,

“I have a degree in music. Musicians are not always supportive people. I had a lot of EMDR therapy on my music school “juries”. Yes, that is what they’re called—juries. “Play for us so we can judge you,” they say.

I take measures to help ensure my training sessions are the exact opposite of that experience for my EMDR trainees. Here at EMDR Educators, you’ll find a non-judgemental atmosphere that’s rich with support and encouragement.”



Encouraging the trainees to be patient with themselves and their development is a characteristic of our style. It’s our brand.

We ensure our EMDR trainers are patient with every trainee, accepting them at the stage where they are.



Creativity drives us and makes us feel alive and excited about the work. EMDR Educators’ EMDR trainings purposefully take you into the creative zone. 

Eliciting creativity in each individual EMDR student makes our training exciting for all participants, including us. It’s the sweetness of that discovery of a thing that has always been there just hiding in plain sight that now is your gift revealed.

This is just a taste of how it feels as our training fosters new skills, fresh zest for the work, and new ideas in you. 



Dr. Dobo’s unique, inspired insights and heartfelt, relatable passion for EMDR invigorate those who train with him.

As a result, EMDR Educators’ EMDR trainees are excited to get back to their work and employ their new skills. They become highly motivated to improve the world one hour at a time (not a bad way to spend a day!).
