My newest blog post -- how to consider when less is more in relationships, and not adding pressure in service to our "goal!"

In relationships, we might think that adding more pressure to the "outside" gets us somewhere. Instead, what if we considered going inside ourselves, to find relief?

This is just in! If you are someone who has taken my EMDR Trainings or will be, the company I use for the DAS/BLS, is offering my students a discount. The web version of the site is free and always will be, but the tappers are an amazingly cool thing to be able to use over the internet.

You can download the application as well as purchase the tappers here. I also purchased the upgraded version of the website, cos I wanted to be able to use the cool upgrades from the free version. Come on, the upgraded version had unicorn icons.

I get no kickback or anything from this; I'm just excited to share a nice way to do BLS over the Internet. I'm just a geek.

IF you have photos from the EMDRIA Conference in DC this past weekend, PLEASE upload them here. I would love to see the moments that inspired you, and opened your mind and heart! I would love to see the folks you met, your "peeps."

And, get ready. There are BIG things coming. I have some exciting ideas, and new inspiration, to help the next generation of EMDRIA Certified Therapists, EMDRIA Consultants, and Educators, to rock their work.

Stay tuned. I'm "licking and chewing," as we horse folks say. More to come.

08/23/2023

Settling in for the EMDRIA Conference in Arlington, VA that starts on Friday. The EMDR Trainer Day pre-conference gig is tomorrow. I'm so excited to get a day before to hit DC again and also connect with my old undergraduate roommate. So grateful for all of the amazing places and experiences that the EquiLateral: The Equine Assisted EMDR Protocol takes me to!

For those of you who are recently trained in DBR, or are perhaps receiving DBR, there has been a newly published FIRST study on and associated article in the European Journal of Psychotraumatology.

The treatment effects are deemed statistically significant AND an increased treatment effect is indicated at 3-month follow-up. There is MUCH we have to learn about the subcortical processing of trauma, but this is a step in the right direction. Please take a look.

The blog post found below is a really personal one for me.
I hope that it inspires you, as much as it took me the courage to write it.

Complex trauma clients often experience themselves as ghosts, walking around in the world not feeling seen or heard, and some not even feeling as if they existed in the first place. That said…

EMDRIA asked all 2023 EMDRIA conference presenters to submit a two-minute video short about their presentation.
This was fun to make! Of course, Annie is the star. That said, the Arizona heat, also meant that the flies wanted to participate as well!🐴

I am so so excited that the newest website for my private practice, Dragonfly International Therapy, is up and running! My old site has served me well for the last 15+ years, but www.dragonflyinternationaltherapy.com was in need of a massive reboot, to reflect the full range of intensives, various modalities, and trainings/consultations that I offer. It was such a labor of love to vision, but I am so happy with the results. I hope you like it and will pass it on!

Helping therapists increase confidence, reduce burnout and feel empowered through consultations & intensives using DBR, Equine-Assisted EMDR, SDT & EMDR.

Just finished running my two-day Structural Dissociation Theory Two Day Practicum EMDRIA Approved "Healing the Whole Self Part II: Treating Dissociation In Harmony With EMDR Therapy. I LOVE this course because I get to witness deep, deep, deep healing and learning moments for the therapists that attend. They remember their wholeness, and they get to know parts of themselves that needed to be acknowledged.

Anyone who trains in anything with me knows that I always say that the right group of folks shows up at the right time. This group was no exception.

The synergy in this group, the open hearts, the vulnerability, the personal and professional growth. Sometimes I am just in awe of this work and that I get to experience it as a teacher, and also a perpetual student, myself. So grateful.

PS Thanks to Ashley Murphy for this photo from another training date, I just love it!

Hey friends, I am in the midst of a massive website revision. My DFIT one has served me well for the last 16+ years, but it's now time for a reboot on this second site. Going live very soon!
If you are someone who has attended one or more of my trainings or even has done consultation with me, I would LOVE it if you could give me a brief testimonial specifically for

Healing the Whole Self: EMDR (Part 1 and/or Part 2)
