I help clients with anxiety, relationship challenges, depression, grief/loss, stress, and burnout/compassion fatigue. Additionally, I specialize in working with First Responders/Health Professionals and PTSD/Trauma. I focus on your individual values and helping you discover a meaning-centered life. I believe that therapies and the therapeutic relationship are as unique as the individual, while one style may suit you, it may not suit others. I am mindful of each individual who walks through the door.

Sarah Elizabeth McMillan

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, MA, MSW, RSW
What would living a meaningful life with illness, pain and uncertainty look like for you? Where do you want to spend your precious time and energy? How do you want to treat yourself and others during these challenging times? I help my clients answer these and similar questions based on their personal values so they can show up in their lives in ways that are authentic and fulfilling to them. As someone who lives with serious medical conditions, I am attuned to the challenges of living with an unpredictable body and uncertain future. Whether you're facing a sudden life change, a progressive illness or a long-term health challenge, my practice focuses on supporting folks currently struggling against what they can’t change about themselves, their body and the world around us.

Adrienne Sharma-Richardson PhD MEd RP OCT

Registered Psychotherapist, Registered Gestalt Psychotherapist Somatic Experiencing Practitioner Gottman Trained Couples Therapist
As a gestalt psychotherapist, who pairs gestalt training with somatic experiencing I can help support you in healing from your trauma. No one in the Niagara Region utilizes the combination of these therapies and applies them to working with couples in crisis. Gottman (couples) and Post Induction Therapy training (relational/developmental trauma) I am sorry to say but popular approaches to healing trauma like CBT will provide only temporary relief at best. If you want to get to the root of your trauma and heal somatic experiencing (SE) is what you need and when supported with the power of relational gestalt therapy you will shift your shit! SE focuses on regulating your nervous system. With SE work trauma responses are completed and energy is released back into the system and with this the resolution and disappearance of physical complaints, including headaches, digestive problems, and pain syndromes can be resolved, and emotional regulation can be restored. I will teach you how to work with your stress response - the body's innate alarm system in response to a perceived danger, also called the "Fight or Flight" response. It is highly adaptive to danger and human survival when threats are physical, but less so when threats are psychological, or imaginary, among other somatic and relational skills. I have been trained under Dr Abi Blakeslee part of Dr Peter A Levine's legacy group out of California for Somatic Experiencing and the late great Dr Bud Feder the author of Beyond the Hot Seat was on my dissertation committee overseeing a phenomenological study of the effectiveness of a gestalt therapy group I created to reduce stress in working informal caregivers of the elderly. I named the group process Stressed WOW (We Overloaded with Work). Gestalt therapy is an extremely complex psychotherapy, too complex to describe in this short space. The power of its effectiveness can only be experienced. Most present day therapies have stolen bits and pieces of its praxis. Get the whole again with a holistic, here and now, experiential therapy. I am here for you... I've got your six!

Emmy Montemurro-Baxter

Registered Psychotherapist, MScEd, RP, RMFT
The combination of my past work experience in human services, my 25+ years in private practice, and my life experience, I have learned that every person is unique and faces unique challenges. I have developed a multi modal approach to therapy as I find drawing on techniques from several approaches allows me tailor my sessions to meet the needs of each client, depending on their situation, their values and their needs. Life is full of challenges and at times such challenges may leave one feeling overwhelmed or stuck and unsure how to move forward. Whether what one is facing is a minor or a major concern, engaging in therapy can be helpful in many ways. Through talk therapy my aim is to gain and understanding of the uniques ness of each individual and to assist them to manage the stresses they face recognize there own strengths bring clarity to their thoughts, emotions and feeling define their goals identify and assess possible courses of action and move forward with intention

ASR Counselling and Psychotherapy, Attachment and Trauma-informed

Registered Social Worker, HonBA, BSW, MSW, RSW, EMDR Certified
Hi, my name is Ada. Maybe this is your first time seeking therapy or maybe you are searching for a better fit. Trying to find someone who is able to help can feel overwhelming, especially with so many options. For 22 years, my passion has been working with individuals who have struggled with old wounds and life's unrelenting hardships. My speciality is making sense of your life story: the experiences, stuck thoughts, feelings and perhaps, even memories that have contributed to where you are today. Gaining a better understanding of what brought you here will help shape what you need to feel better. Getting the lay of the land of your life story not only helps to understand where you've been, but also where you need to go from here. We can do this by getting to know those wounded parts of self and, finally, giving them a voice to heal. Understanding your life story is most effective in making those desired changes because it is complete – understanding you, from beginning, middle and beyond. I look forward to connecting with you and starting you on your journey of self discovery and healing.

Chad Tomlinson

Registered Psychotherapist, MTS, MEd, MA, Rev.
Over the last 17 years I've been on a journey to figure out what it means to be emotionally healthy. Despite all my education, which includes three Masters Degrees and a postgrad certificate in comedy writing and performing (I'm not sure why I did that one), I'm the first to say that life has been my greatest teacher... that and my wife. She has been very good at helping me see life from a more diverse perspective and to grow in my understanding of healthy conflict resolution, communication, and forgiving (aka be a better person). My goal is to live in a way that will inspire others to want to be healthier rather than to follow what my dad used to joke saying, "Do as I say; not as I do," which is not what you want in a therapist. My style is a mix of CBT, DBT, EFT, solution focused, and logic therapy with my main goal being to help others figure out what it means to be more emotionally healthy a lot quicker than my journey of 17 years.
