Dr. Jennifer Holt, PhD LPCC MDiv

EMDR Certified Therapist

Approved Consultant

Education & Experience

EMDR has been my primary modality for over 18 years. I am an EMDR Consultant (mastery level EMDR certified therapist who provides therapy plus helps EMDR therapists in training become certified). I have a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, an MA in Counseling Student Personnel Psychology (both from the U of Minnesota) and a Masters of Divinity. I have worked with hundreds of clients, helping them heal completely from trauma. Healing childhood neglect/abuse/attachment issues, and clearing parental/ancestral dysfunctional patterns are two of my specialties. I am also a CA Board-Approved supervisor for therapist interns. I work exclusively online.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I have volunteered in dozens of jails and prisons as a grief and loss practitioner, as well as teaching my forgiveness protocol, the Namaste Dialogues, around the world. I have volunteered extensively as a death and dying midwife, most recently for a number of years at the Tara Home Hospice, Land of the Medicine Buddha, Soquel, CA.

Insurance


I am an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies, meaning I am paid by the client up front and I provide monthly receipts for the client to send in to their insurance company for reimbursement purposes.
