I''ve been a practicing RSW and Levels I and II EMDR practitioner for 20 years! I work with adolescents and adults, offering standard EMDR and standardized adaptions.
I identify as a Trauma Therapist. I assess people's histories emotional and behavioural challenges from a trauma-informed perspective. My areas of specialization are: trauma and PTSD treatment; mood and behavioural dysregulation (ie. self harm, substance abuse, suicidality as both means of expressing and relieving profound emotional pain and PTSD symptoms such as flashbacks); grief, loss and adjustment; and LGBTQ/queer/diversity issues.
I love EMDR. I love the myriad of brilliant protocols that have evolved for various populations and needs, i.e. children, pain sufferers,car accidents, anxiety, migraineurs. Why? Because, I know firsthand that it works! As EMDR therapists-in-training, we participate in EMDR treatment. EMDR, to my surprise, was THE modality that relieved me of the emotional distress and skewed self thought related to my own traumatic life experiences. EMDR freed me!
And since my Level I and II EMDR training in 1998, I've joined with many clients in EMDR treatment. I've been witness to clients experiencing the same liberation from the emotional distress and skewed cognitions created by the experience and aftermath of trauma, thanks to EMDR.
If you'd like to discuss EMDR treatment and services, please contact me! I have an office in Mississauga (Hurontario-Lakeshore), easily accessible from the QEW or GO train! Please call me at 647-609-0236 or email me at hello@joannebeggs.com It would be my pleasure to meet and discuss your needs in person.
