Throughout my career, I provided a wide range of counseling services within Hospitals, School Boards, and Community Services. In addition, my work in rehabilitation centres, has given me invaluable experience working with young offenders and youth under the protection of the Children’s Aid Society. I finally settled on running my own private practice as a psychotherapist, where I continue to gain more experience in order to provide you the best care.I believe that therapeutic intervention reaches its full potential when the focus of the therapy is set accordingly to your goals. My work philosophy, therefore, is to focus on your expressed needs. I believe that to ensure the success of the therapeutic process, you should feel comfortable; it is crucial that our relationship is based on trust, honesty, safety and respect. I engage myself to work in an atmosphere that shares these values!

Eye Movement Integration Therapy
Every time I treat a client with EMI, I'm completely amazed with its results. EMI is a powerful tool capable of releasing the many
burdens of traumatic experiences. In addition to the joy that this
exceptional tool brings my clients and me, EMI is a therapy growing in
popularity that is lauded by many professionals. In fact, a pilot study
showed that, on average, a single treatment with EMI could reduce
post-traumatic stress symptoms by 48%, while a full course of treatment
reduced symptoms by 83%. 
In addition, another study found that a single session of eye movement
integration (EMI), a technique originating from NLP, significantly
reduced the trauma symptoms in patients (12 children, aged 14–16 with
suffering from traumatic experiences). The study recommended EMI to aid
in the recovery of childhood trauma. 
Traumatic events can be deeply rooted in memories of distressing
experience, and as such, treating these memories can become a challenge
simply because therapeutic methods simply don't possess enough depth
and power to reach the sources of the trauma. Recent research explains
that highly distressing emotions are linked inappropriately via a
traumatic memory network that remains unassimilated in any declarative
form. EMI is a brief therapeutic approach, radically different from any
other therapeutic methods; it uses guided eye movement to assist the
person to access recorded information in all its multisensory,
cognitive, and emotional forms in a very gentle, non-invasive way.
