EMDR Trauma Therapy for PTSD

Serving Vancouver & North Vancouver

Effective Evidence-Based Therapy For Persons Suffering From Post Trauma Injuries or a range of other disturbing concerns. I also work with childhood trauma helping you to heal frozen states, move into the present while working in a functional adult state.

Symptoms of PTSD

Have you been diagnosed with PTSD?
Do you wish you could leave the past in the past?  Are some days difficult because you feel numb? Sometimes you overreact but don’t you know why?  Do you, avoid certain places, to prevent feeling distress?
Do you have recurring dreams, nightmares with the same themes that represent something terrible you experienced?
Do you wish you could sleep again?  Have you experienced sexual assault, abuse, car accident, ongoing childhood trauma, or have experienced operational stress injuries as a first responder?
I work with youth, adults, couples and families who have experienced a traumatic incident or who need help with family conflict or concern.

EMDR- Skills and Cognitive Therapy

After working with me you will feel, stable, confident to socialize again.
With the past in the past and more energy, you can focus on future goals. You may sleep better, feel better about yourself, develop good boundaries, and find that you are able to draw on skills to cope with distress and maintain happy relationships.



I am so excited about the latest research on how trauma creates predictable symptoms that can be treated, that I facilitate educational groups on PTSD, teach a course on it, and treat it. EMDR is endorsed by the world health authority as one of the top modalities for treating trauma.

Relief of Symptoms

People come to me to get relief from these symptoms as well as eliminate PTSD triggers. For some people, the trauma has been more complicated and ongoing, either childhood trauma that is repeating in themes and relationships or is work-related. I also work with you to get relief from childhood memories that are interfering with meeting your goals. I am a certified EMDRIA approved  EMDR  therapist.
