What is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)?
While it does look strange in action, it is a type of therapy that helps the brain make sense of information in new ways. While EMDR is best known for alleviating the distress associated with trauma, it can be a helpful intervention for many issues that cause emotional distress. For more information, check out my EMDR page, EMDR Canada, or EMDRIA
Do you use other techniques besides EMDR?
Yes! Depending on the needs of each client, I draw from various modalities in addition to EMDR including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Ego States therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Coherence Therapy.
What type of clients do you work with? Ages/demographics?
I work with adult clients. Although I am trained in couples therapy, I am not taking couple clients at this time.
Can you help me with (fill in the blank)?
I have never been to a therapist/counsellor before. What can I expect in the first session?
The first session is an opportunity for us to connect and to talk about what has been happening in your life. You will also have the chance to ask me any questions that you might have. At some point during the first session, I will ask you about your goals for counselling. These goals will help us stay on track in future sessions.
I see that you graduated from a seminary program. Do you integrate faith into your counselling approach?
My clients come from a variety of backgrounds and I use mainstream therapy techniques that are common to the field of counselling psychology. If clients want, faith can become a topic to explore in relation to the issues at hand. I do not discuss faith in the counselling room unless the client initiates this discussion, or indicates on their intake form that religion/faith is an important part of their life or is relevant to their presenting concern.
