Elsia La Caria

EMDR Certified Therapist

Elsia La Caria & Co. Psychotherapy

I am a Registered Social Worker with over 20 years of therapeutic experience supporting children, families and individuals. My style is warm and informal and I provide my clients with a safe and non-judgmental space. I am a trauma-focused therapist and I specialize in treating both “big T” and “small t” trauma, including childhood attachment wounds, abuse/assault, and the witnessing of traumatic events.

I am trained in the following modalities; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Structural Dissociation, and Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Individuals. Irrespective of the modality used, I believe that all therapy should be rooted in a client-therapist relationship that is characterized by warmth, acceptance and trust.

I am highly influenced by attachment science and trauma research and I obtain inspiration from the healing powers of connection and emotional security. I am committed to staying current on research and evidence-based treatments and I engage in ongoing psychotherapy training.

I believe that psychotherapy is an art that involves the “meeting of two minds”. I am passionate about helping my clients heal and grow and I am honoured to witness the shifts that occur within themselves and ultimately, their lives.
