About Gray Matters

ABOUT GRAY MATTERS

Mission

Gray Matters Therapy Workshops (GMTW) provides opportunities for mental health professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills through workshops presented by experts in the field. 

History

GMTW was created in 2018 by Michelle Anspaugh and Susan Wulff to continue the 20 year legacy of EMDR Spring Break Workshops sponsored by Larry Nieters, who retired from sponsorship in 2018.  With Larry’s blessing, we continue to bring nationally and internationally known presenters to Kansas City. 

 

We are passionate about promoting the education, development, and networking of mental health professionals in the Kansas City area through sponsorship of exceptional workshops. In total, we have volunteered for over 20 years to help grow the local EMDR community through the sponsoring of EMDR basic trainings, creation of two Trauma Recovery Networks, and volunteering on the steering committees for both the former Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Regional Network and the current EMDR Network of Greater Kansas  City (EMDRGKC).

Michelle Anspaugh is a current member of the EMDRGKC Steering Committee and a former Co-Coordinator of the Heartland KS Trauma Recovery Network.  Susan is a current member of the EMDRGKC Steering Committe and a former Co-Coordinator of the Greater Kansas City EMDRIA Regional Network.  Michelle and Susan are both EMDRIA Certified Therapists practicing in the Kansas City area.
