Guides (our workshop helpers)

"A Guide is a person who advises or shows the way to others. Workshop helpers have been a huge part of the success of my workshops over the years. They are people who have taken my workshops and/or have been in group or individual consultation with me. Sometimes they have learned alongside me where I have gone to learn. Most likely they are at least a little more familiar with the material being taught than the workshop students, and I invite them as Guides because of the Self-Energy they provide, which supports the learning, growth, and healing we intend at each workshop. Most of all, I consider these special people friends."

Limited Spaces - enroll early!

These workshops are experiential. We try to maximize practice opportunities, which are coached by our talented Guides. So, we limit all workshops to a maximum of 30 students, so we can assign one Guide to each student group of three.


"I am inspired by synchronicity, the convergence of models and methods of healing. Healing is a singularity, it exists separately beyond models and methods. It is understood more clearly and facilitated more deftly as one's perspective expands though additional dimensions of knowing.

IFS, EMDR, and Coherence Therapy (based on memory reconsolidation research) provide a cutting-edge nexus of these dimensions. Communication skills informed by clinical hypnosis improve the delivery of these methods.

All internal experiential phenomena appear to mirror the external universe, and thus concepts from physics have been useful metaphors for the inner space-time matrix, energies involved in healing, and what happens within. I have drawn from relativity, quantum physics, and other physical principles to deepen my familiarity with the world inside."

What people are saying about Bruce's workshops:

“I have been using EMDR Therapy extensively for more than a decade. The IFS-Informed EMDR Training has expanded my toolkit in ways that have re-energized my practice. EMDR and IFS are natural partners, and my clients are benefitting.”

Sonja Lindgren, MSS, LCSW

"I have already begun using your approach with my clients. It went beautifully!!! Much thanks! I've been to some of these things and been lucky to walk away with a small idea - this was one of the best I've attended!"

Deborah Reilly, LPC, NBCC

"So appreciate your presence and solid teaching style. Loved your demos."

Sabine Boots, LMFT

"I feel like I am taking away a renewed interest in, and capacity for, including EMDR in my practice again. Your map and your ideas on how IFS and EMDR interweave, gave me a much clearer sense of how to do this. Your demos were especially helpful in showing this process. I also deeply appreciate your style, your energy and your being so real in presenting this wealth of awareness you have of how different models weave together. It was well worth my trip."

Gary Whited, Ph.D.

"Thank you for an enriching day. I appreciated your easy style and relaxed manner. It made for an atmosphere of safety."

Susan Carpenter, LCSW

"Bruce’s easy-going, accepting manner creates the kind of safe environment that optimizes learning and vulnerable sharing."

Ellen Watson, MSS

"Very well organized, interesting and concise introduction to the blending of IFS and EMDR.

I do hope that Bruce can do more of these workshops beyond the introductory level and continue enlighten us with more of his amazing clinical work & true talent for engaging clients. "

Lucienne Despota, LCSW

"It is a relief to attend a training that is so comprehensive and integrating of various materials. Bruce clearly has a lot of knowledge about EMDR and IFS. He has developed a wonderful weaving of these approaches, theory and practice, with creativity and focus on “being with” the client."

Ann Friedenheim, LPC
