Hello colleagues,

In case any of you need to make referrals for more acute trauma cases to seasoned EMDR clinicians (Certified and Consultant-in-Training-level), I wanted to let you know that Evergreen Counseling recently hired three more EMDR-Certified and Consultant-in-Training level clinicians who are seeing clients in-person in Berkeley and remotely (all across California) now.

Smita Kapoor, LMFT, Stephen Duraney, LPCC, and Tina Larson, LPCC are highly seasoned in EMDR and can work skillfully with more acute clients such as those who might come from complex trauma/developmental trauma backgrounds and present with dissociation, addiction, compulsions, and disordered eating as a result of their trauma experiences. 

They will see clients in-person in our Berkeley-based Evergreen offices as well as remotely across California and can provide EMDR therapy exclusively or adjunctively to your work with them. 

Smita is an EMDR-Certified clinician likewise deeply trained in PTSD/CPTSD, disordered eating, OCD, chronic pain, and also really enjoys working with those who have experienced the trauma of systemic racism. Please note: she can also conduct EMDR (and all therapy services) in Hindi. 

Stephen is an EMDR Consultant-in-Training and a member of the Army National Guard so, in addition to being excellent at treating complex and developmental trauma, has a specialized skill set and body of life experience that equips him well to work with those who have experienced military and combat trauma, first responder trauma, and PTSD.

Tina is an EMDR-Certified clinician extensively trained in the treatment of PTSD, Complex PTSD, Dissociative Disorders, Mood Disorders and Co-occurring Substance Abuse utilizing EMDR Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, parts work via IFS, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. 

With Smita, Stephen and Tina joining Evergreen, this brings our team of trauma-trained and trauma-informed clinicians to 17 (please see this flier for a snapshot of who we are and what issues we treat). 

Also, please know that you and any prospective clients can view our up-to-the-minute openings, fees, and contact details of every member of our team here and/or book a complimentary 20-minute matching consultation call here with our center's clinical intake coordinator - Jennifer - to get matched to an EMDR therapist (or other trauma therapist) that best fits them clinically, relationally, and logistically. 

Again, thank you in advance for considering Evergreen as a potential resource for anyone who might benefit from EMDR specifically and/or trauma therapy informed by CBT, DBT, ACT, ARC, and other modalities.

Warmly, Annie
