Dr. Deborah S. Cole, Psy.D.
(She, Her, Hers)
I was a school psychologist and then retrained as a clinical psychologist. After that, I was trained in EMDR (starting with Francine Shapiro) and then in Trauma and DissociatIve Disorders. Subsequently I spent three years training in ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), which I often use prior to EMDR with patients so that I can better grasp their internal world.
