About Rivers Edge Institute EMDR in Color Trainings

"This was an amazing training! I feel honored to be able to receive all of the amazing information from each and every one of our trainers. I also love that each person came from a different and unique perspective and it allows me to see how to make EMDR my own and utilize it with the other modalities I already incorporate. Thank you so much for this opportunity!"

"This was the absolute most impactful training I have ever had in my clinical career. This has revolutionized the way I approach practice. This change was directly related to the professionalism, the cultural relevance, the cohort, and the culture of the training itself."

"You all showed up authentically and gave so much to the training and to us individually. You truly honored our culture. I have never been in a space like that before and I'm forever grateful. I am in awe of the work and expertise that you all individually carry."
