Stacey specialises in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a powerful psychotherapeutic approach that has been extremely helpful to process traumatic events or life experiences that have caused stress.

She integrates breathing exercises, meditation, visualizations, and yoga related therapy to help others strengthen their mind, body, heart and soul connection. Yoga related therapy can help calm your nervous system, release stress, increase peace and lead to more restful sleep.

Incorporating an ecological, anti-oppressive, strengths-based practice is a core part of Stacey’s work. Stacey attended the Intensive Sex Therapy Course at the University of Guelph. She provides an open environment for folks interested and curious about discussing their sexuality. An inviting space to explore sexual desires, relationships and fertility challenges.
