EMDR Basic Training

Private practice

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (Psychotherapist) with a full-time private practice based in Victoria, British Columbia. Since 1993, I have worked in a variety of social service and health care roles providing specialized services to those dealing with challenging life experiences.

I graduated from the University of Toronto, first in 2001 with a degree in Occupational Therapy and again in 2014 with a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology & Psychotherapy. I also completed the teacher certification in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at the University of Massachusetts between 2010 and 2018.

In recent years I have specialized my clinical practice in helping individuals heal from a wide range of traumatic experiences, chronic and occupational stress, which often includes symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks, depression and insomnia. I help people get in touch with what matters most to them and develop more fulfilling and satisfying lives. Although EMDR is my primary modality, I have pursued in-depth training in Somatic Experiencing, advanced training in Attachment-Focused EMDR (Parnell Institute), Reconsolidation Therapy for PTSD, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD and Focusing. Above all, I take an individualized approach to everyone I work with.
