Meet Breanna, a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) who is a dedicated and compassionate psychotherapist with experience in helping individuals navigate their emotional and psychological challenges stemming from experiences of trauma, abuse and neglect.

Breanna:

I believe in the transformative power of trust, non-judgment, and emotional safety in therapy. With empathy and authentic connection, I create a safe space for clients to share their stories and bring about positive change.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I specialize in trauma-focused approaches, including Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). I continually invest in my professional growth to provide high-quality care.

My focus is on working with individuals who have experienced trauma, abuse, and neglect. I help clients navigate the impacts of trauma, such as depression, anxiety, hypervigilance, flashbacks, shame, grief, and relationship difficulties. I have a particular interest in childhood trauma, sexual abuse, and assault, as well as trauma’s impact on sleep and nightmares.

My approach is trauma-focused and client-centered, integrating evidence-based practices tailored to each client’s unique needs and goals. I value emotional and psychological safety, creating a collaborative alliance with my clients. I use an integrative approach, drawing on techniques like IFS, Polyvagal Theory, DBT, EMDR, and attachment-based therapies.

I believe you are the expert of your own life and am committed to fostering resiliency, empowerment, and strength. I provide a compassionate space for exploration, healing, and growth. I work with individuals aged 16 and above, embracing diversity in backgrounds, ages, cultures, and identities.

In addition to individual therapy, I facilitate trauma processing therapy groups, fostering shared humanity and connection.

I am dedicated to therapy based on empathy and mutual respect, tailored to your unique needs. I am ready to meet you where you are on your healing journey. When you’re ready, reach out and take that first step.
