Buspar generally does not cause nervousness but everyone reacts differently to every different medication. If you start it at a low enough dose and eat a little with it when first starting out, most people tolerate it well and cannot tell they are even taking anything until a couple of weeks later they start to really feel better.
I don't know if the conference your therapist is going to is a training conference or not, but I didn't see Columbia listed as an upcoming training session, so I would assume not. In which case, she won't want to use EMDR until she is actually trained (a couple of lectures just doesn't get it). Regarding the therapists you found that don't have initials after their name, I couldn't tell you what their credentials would be, but you can only get the EMDR training if you are a real therapist and have a licensing board for whatever your training is. Call a few of them and, if several have openings fairly soon, choose based on any feel of good rapport you may get, or if you don't get to talk directly to them, Level II training is better. Don't worry too much about the initials they have after their name.
Regarding the meds for social phobia: I don't have any personal experience with prescribing MAOI's for social phobia. I've used cog-beh therapy, Inderal for performance anxiety, Paxil several times for pervasive anxiety, and EMDR for situational panic attacks. Never had to resort to the MAOI's.
