Norine Vander Hooven, LCSW


Learning is a lifelong process. I’m not quite sure who originally said that, but that is certainly my philosophy.

I believe growth and learning are truly a lifelong process and that philosophy informs everything I do as a therapist, as well as one that supervises other therapists in my field.

For most of my career, I have worked from viewing the client from psychodynamic and attachment-based perspectives.  

Additionally, in the last 4 years, I have also begun utilizing EMDR therapy with most of my clients.  

Therapy with me is not “one size fits all”. As a Client, your first few sessions will be a joint effort to assess what kind of therapy is going to work best for you. I am an active participant with you in your sessions. I will be reflective of what you are telling me, and work with you on the most effective way for you to grow within yourself and in your relationships.

Are you a Therapist Looking for Solutions?

Another role I am especially passionate about is to provide supervision and consultation to therapists who, in general, are looking for support and guidance in their daily therapy practices.  

I am an approved Consultant for EMDR therapy and provide support to those seeking Certification or those going through the CIT process to become an Approved Consultant themselves.

Learning is a life-long process...

I’m not quite sure who originally said that, but that is certainly my philosophy.

Whether you are needing supervision for licensure, or you are already a therapist and are looking for ongoing consultation, I can help! 

There’s so much to learn in our field, as each client brings different challenges and presenting issues.  I am passionate about helping other therapists continue investing in their learning process.

Individual and Group Consultation Services

Consultation with me is not  a “one size fits all”.   Each clinician is different and has varied types of clients.  So, it’s a value for me to learn more about you and what type of consultation you need to fit your style of therapy and the clients you’re focused on helping.  I believe consultation is a critical part of your practice. On-going training, support, and council will help you in your own professional journey as a therapist.  

With Individualized consultation services, I work to be an active participant with you in your professional development as a therapist. If you need consultation services, click here.

EMDR Consultation

One of my passion’s as a therapist and therapy practice owner is to provide consultation services for therapists. As an EMDR Certified therapist, I am able to consult any EMDR therapy therapist (certified or not) who desires ongoing weekly consultation services, as well as one time visits for specific reasons.   If you are working with a complex case and would like to have ongoing consultation and support, please reach out.

Effective Suicide Risk Course

I truly believe learning is a process we all go through every day. The fact is that in the last 15-20 years, suicide has risen tremendously. Therefore, it is so much more important for anyone in the mental health field to be able to access this information. Sometimes reading or researching a topic is just not enough.  In my practice, I provide individual supervision in the area of Suicidology. Not only am I fairly well versed in this area, but over the years I have gathered  a plethora of resources in varied areas of Suicidology. 

In addition to individual supervision, I also have a 6-hour course on Suicide Risk Assessment and Beyond. “Beyond” is because it covers the whole spectrum from before a crisis hits all the way through to post intervention (this is after a person dies by suicide). There are many downloads and assessments as well. For more information on the course, click here.
