Therapist InfoAbout Me:
Liz has a background in child and youth care working with families, infants, and children with diverse abilities. She has a degree in child and youth care where she chose to specialize in the early years stream. She spent 11 years working as a family support worker and infant development consultant learning the incredible importance of attachment in these early years of life. During this time, she also began to study attachment trauma and attained a masters of counselling psychology degree.Description of Services:
Liz has been in private practice, Mind Body Psychotherapy Inc. for 7 years specializing in attachment based somatic therapies (EMDR, Mind-Body Attunement Therapy, Compassionate Inquiry, psychedelic psychotherapy integration) all aimed at healing dissociative emotional distress. She believes in targeting the root cause of mental illness (attachment trauma and shock trauma). She specializes in uncovering the roots of emotional pain such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress; as well as, physical pain such as chronic pain and illness. Liz also works with veterans and retired RCMP with complex PTSD for the last three years, and refined therapies for first responders in her own practice.
The last two years she has added the study of psychedelic psychotherapy into her practice learning. Liz believes psychedelic psychotherapy can desensitize/heal accumulated trauma allowing the mind to learn (make sense of the past) and thus post traumatic growth to happen. She emphasizes the importance of preparation and integration as part of this therapy; without these essential components, the benefits can be missed or lost again over time.Credentials & Certifications: Master of Counselling Psychology & Bachelor of Child and Youth CareLicenses: RSW 13828
