EMDR Basic Training

Private practice

I am a masters level social worker and psychotherapist who has been working in the field of social work for over twenty years. I work primarily with adults and adolescents, although I enjoy working with people of all ages. I believe in the mind-body-spirit connection and in our ability to heal when this connection is strengthened. EMDR therapy is an approach I use frequently as it is a therapeutic modality that connects to the healing power within us. I also regularly draw upon dialectical behavioural therapy, Internal Family Systems, psychodynamic modalities, from a mindfulness and self-compassionate perspective. I am currently becoming certified in hypnotherapy as well.
I work to support individuals suffering with varied challenges including past trauma, anxiety and depression, grief, low self-worth, and relationship issues. My aim is to strengthen one’s connection to the immense capacity within each person that supports healing, growth and wellness. My practice is in a comfortable space, in an atmosphere filled with compassion and unconditional positive regard. If you are considering counselling please contact me for a free 15 minute consultation.
