EMDR Basic Training

Being With Collective

I am a Registered Social Worker and Certified Hypnotherapist. I provide EMDR, psychotherapy, and hypnotherapy virtually to clients across Ontario and in-person in St Catharines, Ontario. I co-founded Being With Collective, a private psychotherapy and body work clinic, in 2023 where we offer services in a gentle and compassionate environment. I completed my BA with Honours in Psychology at Brock University in 2007, and my Masters in Social Work at the University of Toronto in 2010, specializing in mental health. I’ve since taken many additional trainings that inform my work, especially Polyvagal Theory, Structural Dissociation Theory, Attachment Theory and Hypnotherapy.
I have a background in healthcare and neurological rehabilitation, and a particular interest in the impact of early life on the formation and foundation of the subconscious mind – what we believe about ourselves, the world, and how we must be in order to have our needs met. From this perspective, I believe that we all “make sense” and that true self-compassion and change can take place.
I primarily work with adults, but sometimes will see children and adolescents on a case-by-case basis.
