Holistic, trauma-informed therapy for children, teens and adults.

Emily Kedar, Psychotherapy for children, teens and adults in Toronto, Ontario

Welcome. I’m glad you’re here. I’m a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Canadian Counsellor serving children, teens and adults in Toronto, Canada.

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 ...

The Cure By Albert Hoffstickler

We think we get over things. We don’t get over things. Or say, we get over the measles, But not a broken heart. We need to make that distinction. The things that become part of our experience Never become less ...
