Holistic, trauma-informed therapy for individual adults

Emily Kedar offers holisitc, trauma-informed psychotherapy for adult individuals in Toronto, Ontario and online from the comfort of your home.

Welcome. I’m glad you’re here. I’m a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Canadian Counsellor serving adults in person in Toronto and online throughout Ontario.

Life can feel too intense, sometimes. We all deserve support. Psychotherapy can be a powerful way to work through those moments in life when we can’t see a way forward- when we feel stuck, lost, alone, disconnected, overwhelmed and small.

Whatever you may be struggling with, you don’t have to do it alone. In the context of a strong therapeutic relationship, we can make sense of your experience and help you work through it, together.

About Emily Kedar

I hold a Masters of Education in Psychology from University of Toronto, and was clinically trained at Women’s College Trauma Therapy Program. I practice from an anti-oppressive, inclusion-focused and client-centered framework. I draw from the inherent healing properties of creativity, connection, movement, and nature, and ground my sessions in evidence-based therapeutic intervention. I specialize in working with clients who identify concerns relating to histories of trauma, as well as anxiety, depression, social struggles, major life changes, chronic shame, and emotion regulation struggles. I help clients rediscover or deepen a sense of safety and vitality in their bodies, their choices and their relationships.  

I respect the complexity of your experience and we will always go at your pace, setting goals collaboratively. I draw from my formal training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a leading evidence-based modality that acknowledges the body’s wisdom and resilience, and brings somatic awareness into talk- therapy. I also draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Ecopsychology and Depth Psychology.

I am a Certified Forest Therapy Guide (in training), and can offer sessions in the outdoors as a way of deepening a felt connection to the living world, calming the nervous system, and nourishing the spirit.

I Go Among Trees

I go among trees and sit still. All my stirring becomes quiet around me like circles on water. My tasks lie in their places where I left them, asleep like cattle. Then what is afraid of me comes and lives ...
