Deany Laliotis

I’m Deany Laliotis and I am passionate about the power of EMDR therapy to transform lives. Since 1993, I have had the privilege of working very closely with Dr. Francine Shapiro, the originator of EMDR, I was the Director of Training for the EMDR Institute, the training program developed by Dr. Shapiro that trained clinicians all over the world. My husband, Dan Merlis was also on the teaching faculty of the EMDR Institute. We have trained thousands of EMDR therapists over the years and now run a Center for EMDR therapy training, headquartered in Washington DC.

Here's what colleagues say about Deany

Hosting Deany for a training with our EMDR community in Brazil has been a delightful experience! Her radiance comes through the screen as she shows us how the craft for the clinical practice and the technical skills can complement one another. Deany brings the relational perspective of EMDR, expanding our options for therapists who want to master the "go with that," but "stay with me," principles during reprocessing. We are thrilled to have her as a mentor to our community!
