EMDR Basic Training

Therapy is as much about learning as it is about “un-learning”. I’m passionate about supporting people to identify, challenge and replace negative core beliefs (i.e.: “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t belong”, “my needs don’t matter”) with adaptive, affirming beliefs. With compassion, skill, and a healthy dose of humour, I invite people to get curious about the parts of themselves that feel stuck, lost, reactive, or broken. By befriending these parts, they inevitably learn to soften the never-ending list of “shoulds”, judgements, and fears.

I offer a very down-to-earth approach to understanding and working with trauma, anxiety, and loss. While we may not be able to change or control external factors that add to our suffering, we can change the way we relate to them, and most crucially, to ourselves.

My current availability is Monday – Thursday – 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM (in person at 161 Stafford St) and 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM (virtual only).
