“I first attended this training just a little bit skeptical about EMDR therapy. I walked away convinced of its efficacy. Barb is insightful, knowledgeable, and professional in the field of EMDR; her easy-to-read book makes EMDR so much clearer to the new learner. The level of Barb’s training has far exceeded my expectation of EMDR skills. I can definitely say that Barb’s training and expertise has really increased my skills as a therapist”.Christina Miller, MMFT, LCPC


“Barb is a very gifted, experienced clinician who is truly an expert with EMDR Therapy.  She is a wonderful trainer who is extremely engaging, knowledgeable and professional.  Her EMDR Therapy training renewed my clinical passion and taught me a whole new repertoire of techniques that I am finding extremely useful and effective with my clients.  I highly recommend Barb’s training services.”

“I recently completed EMDR Training with Barb and it has dramatically changed the way I conceptualize and work with trauma. The training is eye-opening – the presentations are amazing, client care is at the forefront of what Barb teaches, and I was able to immediately implement what I learned in my work with clients struggling with trauma.” Christopher Lau, M.S, LCMFT - Coordinator of Counseling Services, Hutchison Community College


“I have completed several trainings with Barb Maiberger.  Each time I came away with insight and techniques that were instantly useful in my practice, and which translated into clear improvements with my clients. These trainings are professionally conducted by first-rate therapists who work extensively and effectively with highly challenging clients. No ‘Ivory Tower’ stuff here — you learn what to do, with which client, and why these techniques work. I feel like I finally learned to be a therapist after many years in the field.”

“My experience with EMDR training at the Maiberger Institute was truly exceptional! Barb and other staff have such an authentic manner of delivering this amazing content while supportively providing challenging experiential opportunity to participants. I am so thankful for such a focused, in-depth foundation knowledge and the many tools with which was given to me in my ongoing quest of providing the best most up to date care of my clients”Jennifer Nakata, MA, LPC, Owner: Authentic Journeys, LLC


“Beyond the basic EMDR Therapy course, I have attended Barb’s advanced courses including ‘Advanced Skills for Working with Complex PTSD’ and ‘Deepening Awareness through Somatic Interventions.’ In my 40 year career I have attended literally thousands of hours of continuing education courses. Barb’s courses stand out as some of the every best because that which you learn you can take to your office and use immediately. These courses are taught with an effective bland of discipline, professionalism, and fun. The mind, didactic, the body, action, are constantly connected as one experiences this process of learning and doing. If you cam to learn, you will not be disappointed. I encourage you to attend, learn, and enjoy, Barb and her colleagues are among the very best.”

“I’ve been a licensed therapist for twenty-four years and have given and attended trainings and conferences around the world. Without question, the clinical training I’ve received at the Maiberger Institute has been by far the most compelling and the most applicable to date.”Michael John Cusick, Licensed Professional Counselor, Author & CEO, Restoring the Soul.


“Thank you, Barb, for his experience as your student in EMDR Therapy training. The curriculum was so well executed. Your sincere interest in reaching out to me as your student led me to feel as though this educational setting was personally designed to fit my learning style. It was truly challenging but I was given the reassurance needed to ‘just go with it.’ Barb, you personally made this small group learning environment successful. You helped me to lay aside 20 plus years of clinical experience practicing ‘my old way.’ I was then able to shift into the gears of this multifaceted EMDR Therapy concept; which applies the 8 phase protocol within this didactic 3 prong trauma theory.

I truly feel so much more equipped to satisfy my professional/life passion; that is to alleviate and/or extinguish the suffering of those having survived life traumas. I look forward to more advanced EMDR Therapy educational studies under your instruction.”

“Once you integrate EMDR therapy into your practice the question becomes, ‘What do I do with the clients who are not ready for the trauma reprocessing protocol?’ Barb’s advanced workshops are the answer. The resourcing tools that I gained have done wonders for my clients with complex PTSD, developmental trauma, dissociative conditions and other severe forms of distress. It’s been so neat to witness how these tools make a difference in my clients lives, and in their ability to endure difficult circumstances.”Angela Sasseville, MA, LPC


“I want to express my appreciation for your training.  Several years back, I attended a first weekend training that had a large number of people.  When I was done, I was reluctant to use EMDR Therapy in many situations and eventually stopped using it.  I found your training extremely helpful.  Being in a small group setting allowed me to get a significant amount of feedback, and I was also able to learn from the other group members.  The training you provided helped me expand my vision of how to use EMDR Therapy, and I am now using it regularly in my practice with exciting outcomes.”

Kara Shaw - Denver, Colorado 80210 - EMDR-Therapist Directory-Maiberger Institute

“This course has been foundational in my work as an EMDR therapist. I appreciated the training’s emphasis on direct experience, practice sessions, and live demonstrations, along with somatically-based self-care skills for the therapist. I walked away with an array of interventions that I could use with clients right away, as well as a greater sense of my own embodiment in the therapeutic process.Kara Shaw, LCSW, RYT, TIYT (Mindful Counseling and Wellness)


“The EMDR Therapy training with Barb was great! She is very personable and presented the material in thorough and engaging ways. I especially liked the fact that in both the training and consultation sessions, it was obvious that she was committed to my personal and professional growth. I feel more confident in my use of EMDR Therapy because of her guidance and support.”

Scott Ulrich, MS, LPC, CAC III - Arvada, Colorado 80002 - EMDR Therapist

“After completion of the training, I became more confident navigating the protocols, and I now have the tools to help my clients strengthen their body’s regulation and resiliency during a time that many often attempt to escape. Barb’s knowledge of techniques, together with John’s extensive experience in addictions treatment, is a great addition for every EMDR therapist.”Scott Ulrich, MS, LPC, CAC III

“Barb is a fabulous trainer and consultant.  Her knowledge base about EMDR Therapy is second to none and her enthusiasm for this therapy protocol is palpable.  I left the first and second weekends of the training so inspired to utilize the tools I had learned.  Even more, I had the confidence to begin implementing the techniques in a way that was helpful and safe for my clients.  Barb has a gift in her ability to give honest clinical feedback while leaving her trainees with confidence in their abilities to use EMDR Therapy effectively with their clients.”

David Ridinger, LPC - Niwot, Colorado 80503 - EMDR Therapist

“Barb and Katie bring an aliveness, connection, joy into the room through their teaching style which makes a workshop with this topic a deep meaningful experience. As a clinician, what made this workshop very beneficial was the incorporation of the relevant materials and information into useful therapeutic tools through the experiential exercises. It was a somatic process that resulted in a clear understanding of how grief is held within each of us and what tools are helpful for resourcing and processing using the EMDR protocol with our clients who are experiencing these inherently painful human emotions. It was the best EMDR workshop I’ve attended.David Ridinger, LPC

“This training far exceeded my expectations and I believe in large part because of Barb’s expertise, her amazing strengths as a teacher, and her awesome sense of humor! I think that the whole set up was well done and I leave feeling lie my abilities as a therapist have been greatly enhanced for which I am most grateful.”

Amy Annesley, LCSW - EMDR Therapist - Broomfield, Colorado 80020

“As a clinician, this workshop has allowed me to expand the healing power of the standard EMDR protocol and more fully embrace the art of EMDR therapy. More importantly, it has provided a framework for the deep wounds of clients, to be acknowledged, tended to and ultimately move toward healing and integration. In this workshop, Barb and Arielle synthesize years of clinical experience with the most up-to-date advancements in attachment theory, neuroscience, somatic awareness and EMDR. Their relatable and accessible style make for an enjoyable but deep learning experience.”Amy Annesley, LCSW
