Sandy McNeil

EMDR Basic Training

Lock 33 Counseling

I have been working in the field of mental health and addiction as a Registered Social Worker for 12 years. I completed my PhD in Social Work at the University of Toronto and my MSW at York University. I have 11 peer reviewed publications and 11 conference presentations, and I am a sessional professor at various Ontario universities. I am also currently employed in a hospital mental health program and a private practice setting. Most recently, I completed Levels 1 and 2 EMDR Basic Training Certificate and I am working towards becoming a certified EMDR therapist. Grounded in a client-centered, recovery-oriented, and trauma-informed approach, I draw upon EMDR, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to engage people in a journey of self-awareness and reflective action. My intention is to provide a gentle, respectful, and compassionate presence in which nurturing, healing and recovery may unfold.
