Tuition Fees


While our EMDR basic training is not inexpensive, it is important to understand that we hire training facilitators and consultants who are highly experienced EMDR therapists and who are exceptionally well-trained by Deany to assist her in trainings and consultation.

Your choice of EMDR basic training will be one of the most important investments of time, energy, and money you make in your professional life, so consider your decision wisely.

Tuition for the complete EMDRIA-approved 8-day basic training is $1,795.  We offer discounts for early registration and for full-time employees of non-profits (See below).  We recommend that applications be submitted early as past trainings often fill weeks before the training begins.  We keep a waiting list in case there are late withdrawals.  Tuition includes the EMDRIA-required 10 hours of case consultation necessary for completion of a basic training.

Early Registration Discount:  An early registration discount of $100 is available for full-fee registrations received before the early registration date.

Agency Practitioner Discount:  We offer a limited number of discounted tuitions of $1,395 to full-time (non-contract) employees, carrying a full psychotherapy caseload, who work for non-profit and government mental health agencies.  A $350 deposit must be paid at the time of registration.  The full training fee must be paid no later than 30 days prior to the start of training. The Agency Discount Form (from the website)  must be completed and submitted with the other registration materials.  No other discounts will apply.  We offer a limited number of discounted agency practitioner tuitions for each training so we advise applicants to register early.

Payment:  You may pay tuition by check or we can bill you via PayPal.  The PayPal bill can be paid by any credit card or via your PayPal account.  There is a one time $50 non-refundable administrative fee per trainee for PayPal payments to cover PayPal processing costs.  This will be charged on the initial deposit and not for the final payment.

Refund Policy:  Tuition is refundable up to 30 days in advance less a $150 administrative fee.  Note:  There will be no guaranteed refunds for withdrawals made within 30 days of the first training date and/or after the beginning of the training.   We are not able to make accommodations for changes in personal or family situations including medical events.  If you must withdraw prior to the training, we will try and find a replacement.  The sooner we are notified of a withdrawal prior to the training, the more likely we will be able to fill the vacancy.  If we are able to do so, we will refund the tuition less a $350 administrative fee.  We do not fill vacancies which take place after the beginning of the training.  Participants who miss all or part of a training day during the training may request to make-up the day at a future training.  A make-up fee will apply and all requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  We make no assurances regarding make-ups. 

Online Case Consultation Group: The dates of the group consultations are listed in the Schedules section of the website. Participation in these consultation group calls is not a requirement for CE credit.  The trainee may elect to complete any part of the EMDRIA-required consultation hours with any EMDRIA-approved consultant.  Documentation of these hours will be necessary before a certificate of completion of the basic training can be issued.  Completion of the basic training is one of the requirements for certification by the EMDR International Association.
