  • EMDR Consultation

    Hello and thank you for considering me to be your consultant for the EMDR certification process. I decided to get trained in EMDR because I heard about it and thought it must be too good to be true. It turns out that I was wrong. EMDR has been my passion since I got trained because I understood how the process of EMDR can be life-changing and instrumental for having a trait change versus a state change. To me, EMDR is my preferred modality because I see it as the most efficient and effective treatment approach with most of my clients.

    When completing the EMDR training process, I remember feeling somewhat overwhelmed and lost, asking myself “am I doing this right?” That is when I decided to reach out to my trainer for consultation and my consultation journey began. For me, it was a fluid process of learning how to become a better practitioner through working with complex cases. I did not plan to become a facilitator with the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP); it truly just happened. When the MSD High School shooting occurred in February 2018, I joined the Trauma Recovery Network Chapter because it was my way to heal with the global healing of our community.

    I feel so fortunate to be part of the EMDR community. HAP offers a circle of support that as a private practitioner, you likely won’t have. Being able to help shape and guide the next generation of EMDR practitioners excites and motivates me. I truly believe all EMDR practitioners should go through the process of certification because that is what makes them more confident and successful with the process. I believe it is important to use this process as an opportunity of growth as a practitioner.

    As your consultant, I am here to give you the confidence in your abilities through this journey. I will guide you in the right direction if necessary and give you feedback if you are missing anything. You will learn and have the space to ask questions. I am here to listen, process, advise, and support you every step of the way. I think it is important to reflect back on what we did in sessions and how it affected our clients.

    Group EMDR Consultation for Certification

    My group consultation meets the second Friday of the month virtually from 2-4 pm eastern time. The group is partially case discussion and partially didactic. The first hour, one team member will present a case and we will go over any questions and observations. The second part of the group is a lecture followed by an email with resources associated with the content. A few examples of topics we cover are: ego state therapy, dissociation assessments, Relationship Development Intervention (RDI), The DeTour Protocol, Early EMDR Interventions (EEI), advanced resourcing skills and more.

    In my opinion, becoming certified should be mandatory, but as a fluid process of professional growth and fun on the way to becoming the best EMDR practitioner you can be. Please contact me for further details and fees.



    “Having Luna as my consultant has been pivotal in my professional development. Not only has she been the catalyst and inspiration to begin my process in becoming a trained EMDR therapist, but she also mentored me through the certification process. She has always been generous with her knowledge and expertise, which has translated into providing quality care to my clients. She provides multiple resources and opportunities to enhance our skills through trainings, peer and group consultation that she organizes and facilitates which has allowed us to connect with other therapists to collectively learn and grow.”

    “Luna is wonderful consultant and mentor. She is a wealth of information that she willingly shares. She is supportive, patient, and caring in her role but challenges you to push yourself to learn and grow as an EMDR clinician. I highly recommend Luna as a consultant.”

    Celestine Quiroga, LMHC

    I’ve had the pleasure to know Luna professionally. I am very cautious when referring out clients to other professionals because that’s my reputation as well. That being said I have referred Luna many personal friends and I’ve never heard an ill word.

    I think Luna has a great personality that makes people around her comfortable. This is very important in a therapeutic environment. I admire her! She is very helpful towards other professionals as well

    My work with Luna laid the foundation for my eventual success in that I came to understand some of the underlying issues that were coming to the surface in ways detrimental to my health. She was patient and kind, but also knew just how to push me in the right direction – even when I resisted. Had I been local to the Fort Lauderdale area, I absolutely would have continued working with Luna, as I grew to truly appreciate and value her input, feedback and direction – especially when I needed help breaking old habits and learning to form new, healthy patterns.

    Anyone who struggles with or has a family member that struggles with addiction understands what a deep-rooted problem it can be. Trying to get to the root of the problem and correct these issues is a lifetime challenge. When my son went to a treatment center in Florida, he met Luna Medina, who was his therapist. Her professionalism and support went above and beyond what normal therapists usually provide for their clients. While she always maintains a professional client-patient relationship, she also really gives her whole heart and soul into the recovery and treatment of her patients. Not only is she a gifted listener of problems, but her method of therapy also provides the skills and tools necessary for recovery. In my son’s case, under Luna’s care, he was able to identify and begin to tackle the obstacles of his addiction. Even though he is no longer in her care, he knows he would never have to hesitate to reach out to her to have her support.

    Noelle Vanek, MD

    Where do I begin? I can truly say from my heart that Luna has helped save my life. Being in the state of mind I was in suffering from substance dependency I had absolutely no chance of life. When I met Luna she has helped me see a better way of life to live free and be happy and independent. My journey was not easy , to be honest I did not think I had it in me to remain clean. As time went on working with Luna my mind slowly started to get stronger, my behaviors and emotions started to get more manageable. Honestly, I started to love myself again. Without Luna , I don’t know where I would be, grateful does not even start on how blessed I am to have her in my life. She is my angel , and she help me to live again. “

    Danielle Umberger, 21

    Luna saved my life. When I got to her I was broken, scared, and traumatized. Luna helped me work through all of that and now I am a free woman that is able to function in society today. I wouldn’t be where I am at today if it wasn’t for Luna’s amazing therapeutic skills. I highly recommend her to anyone that needs help!
