EMDR Basic Training

Private practice and Health Canada

I have had the great pleasure of providing EMDR services for 24 years, and continued to be delighted by its depth, creativity, enjoyment, effectiveness, ease, and efficiency.

I am a psychotherapist, sex and couple counsellor, clinical supervisor, social worker, teacher, and author with both public and private sector experience in Canada and the United States.

Most often, I am using EMDR for emotional hurts and impacts; relational challenges; couple enhancement; professional, career or personal resilience and performance; artistic expression and creativity; building corporate and business finesse and excellence; depression, anxiety, self-esteem and self-confidence; as well as with difficult events and traumatic experiences.

EMDR has been utilized privately, with federal public servants, military personnel, Veterans and the RCMP; for Health Canada; the Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services; in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF/FAC); and with palliative care; professional athletes including World Champions, members of the NHL and CFL, as well as with workplaces, police organizations, and emergency medical technicians.

I have developed and presented bilingual corporate webinars and intervention for workplace harassment and bullying and the dehumanization of the victim for various organizations, including UNESCO; and served as a talk radio therapist (‘Shrinkrap’) and television guest for many years, in addition to taking part in media related to the psychological impacts of working in prison environments.

In recent years, I have concentrated on the impacts of Moral Injury – the distressing psychological, behavioral, social, and sometimes spiritual aftermath of exposure to disturbing events.

A moral injury can occur in response to acting or witnessing behaviors that go against an individual’s values and moral beliefs; and have also done so in collaboration with Whistleblowing Canada Research Group in Ottawa, Ontario.
