Emily has over 10 years of counselling experience and has been training and supervising other clinicians and helping professionals over the past 4 years. Emily is passionate about healing and growth in the face of adversity. She completed her undergraduate and graduate research on the topic of posttraumatic growth and healing. In practice, she has been drawn to working with trauma survivors who are ready to make important changes in their lives. She believes that empowerment and connection are the cornerstones of healing and wellness. 


Most recently, Emily has turned her focus towards “helping the helpers”.  Emily supports the team of clinicians at Wholetherapy, provides consultation to other therapists who are interested in honing their skills, supervision to new therapists entering the field, and training to organizations with mental health staff. Emily works with the Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute as a trainer. She delivers training to healthcare workers on the topics of trauma, vicarious trauma, resiliency, and other subjects. Emily also provides workshops and crisis support to federal agencies with Health Canada as a part of their Specialized Organizational Services Team. Emily also works as a facilitator with Envision Services’ EMDR basic training program.  

Emily holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Adler University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honours) from Cape Breton University. 

Emily is on leave from all external bookings but continues to support her team internally.
