About Emmaus Psychology

About Jocelyn

I define myself as a relationship-based therapist and, hence, have a strong belief in the power of connection between therapist and client.

I strive to connect with clients, develop a supportive and understanding relationship, and create an environment of empathy, compassion and acceptance.

Deciding to begin therapy can be intimidating and overwhelming so I make every effort to provide a comfortable environment in helping an individual create the life they seek, reach the goals they set, and live a life of meaning and purpose.

I am a Registered Psychologist specializing in individual therapy, couples counselling, and parent coaching/consultation. My primary areas of interest include, but are not limited to; relationship concerns, emotional dysregulation, trauma, attachment throughout the lifespan, anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting, and family relationship struggles.

Jocelyn Tuohy, R. Psych.

Throughout my career I have had the pleasure of working in a variety of different settings and with numerous populations. This diverse experience and my extensive training allows me to use an integrative theoretical approach and tailor my therapy to the needs of each individual I work with.

I have received professional training in many therapeutic modalities, including advanced and enhanced level Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Level One and Two Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), Play Therapy, Gabor Mate’s Compassionate Inquiry Professional Training, and Neufeld study on an Attachment-Based Developmental Approach. I continue to expand my learning and skills and receive training on the most advanced treatment modalities.

About Shelley

I I approach therapy from a growth-oriented perspective, meaning that I believe it is possible to evaluate our past, consider our present, and use the knowledge we have gained to move toward a future based on valued and meaningful changes.

My goal is to approach each individual from a place of acceptance and non-judgement; working alongside my clients in order to create the space and support required to sit with uncomfortable emotions, as well as the hope and skills needed to consider a new way forward.

 I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist who specializes in working with children/teens, adult individuals, and couples. Over the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to support individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions, past trauma, childhood developmental disorders, and parent coaching.

Shelley Petry, Registered Provisional Psychologist

My theoretical approach to mental wellness is trauma informed and based on a biopsychosocial understanding of individuals. Therefore, I am interested in where your concerns originated and that a comprehensive approach to wellness includes attention to various contributions of biology, emotional experience, and environmental factors. I draw from an eclectic incorporation of various therapeutic modalities including Attachment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, CBT, and Gottman Method for Couples Therapy.  Additionally, I have completed professional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).

I am continually humbled by the strength and bravery of those who dare to strive for wellness and personal understanding. I believe that, like most skills, mental health is a practice, and with practice comes progress.

About Penny

I truly believe healing happens through connection. Therefore, creating a safe space and building connection is my priority. With compassion, kindness and a genuine approach, I will work with you to grasp how life’s stressors are impacting your mental health. To gain relief and clarity, we will explore how you are being impacted. There is always a reason why we feel, think, and act in certain ways. Together, we will work towards understanding your reasons, as they are the stories that have shaped you and led you to where you are now. You can change the course of your journey and I will teach you how to do this. We will develop tools and strategies to support you along the way.

I work with individuals, couples, and parents who are feeling overwhelmed with life stressors and major life transitions. This overwhelm becomes apparent when clients are struggling with stress, relationships, work, household tasks, sleep, and/or anger. My areas of specialization include anxiety, anger management, post-traumatic stress, depression, relationship distress, and perinatal mental health concerns. I am dedicated in supporting clients get to the root of their concerns so they can finally experience relief.

About Annie

I believe that the relationships we have with ourselves and others are at the heart of our sense of well-being and key to building a satisfying and fulfilling life. I also believe that one’s empowerment and growth can begin within a strong therapeutic relationship where clients feel seen, heard, and understood. As a therapist, I aim to establish therapeutic relationships with my clients that are grounded in trust, empathy, and mutual respect, and to foster a space where clients feel safe and comfortable exploring their current areas of challenge or difficulty. 

I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist and I have experience in providing individual and couples therapy for people of diverse backgrounds who are experiencing a range of presenting concerns.

As a passionate life-long learner, I am committed to continue developing my counselling knowledge and skills.

Therapeutic approaches

* All sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each client

We believe that working through the lens of attachment can enlighten and produce change on a universal level. Whether it is reflecting on and understanding childhood experiences, understanding attachment styles in relationships, or working on strengthening the attachment with your children this theory helps to cover a wide range of concerns.

EFT is a modality that can be used with individuals, couples, and families. EFT is primarily rooted in attachment theory and is based on; understanding and identifying emotions, working through emotions, and transforming emotions to help in problematic states and with interpersonal relationships.

Keep the Knowledge, Lose the Pain.

ART is an emerging and efficient form of trauma therapy that achieves benefits much more rapidly than other forms of treatment. This evidence-based therapy not only works on trauma but can also work through many other mental health problems such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, phobia’s, OCD, addiction, performance anxiety, family issues, poor self image, sexual abuse, relationship issues/infidelity, codependency, grief, job related stress, and pain management.

This process uses relaxing eye movements and a technique called voluntary memory/image replacement in order to change the way in which the negative images are stored in the brain. The result of this treatment will be that clients will no longer experience strong, adverse emotions or physical reactions related to their trauma or mental health problems.

*Please note: ART sessions are 90 minutes in duration

ACT is a form of therapy that uses acceptance, mindfulness, commitment, and behavior-change to help create greater psychological flexibility within an individual. Clients will explore emotions and values, accept their issues/hardships, and commit to making changes in their lives.

CBT is a practical, evidence-based form of therapy that focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors and helping to improve emotional regulation. This modality helps treat a wide range of issues and provides clients with coping tools and strategies to use in order to target current problems and behavior.

Gottman Couples Therapy is a researched-based modality that works through a variety of issues and concerns within a relationship. The interventions are designed to help strengthen communication and friendship, manage conflict, and create a shared meaning amongst a couple. This therapy helps to repair past hurts, change negative patterns, increase intimacy, deepen emotional connection, and create change in a relationship. The Gottman Method outlines a specific process for therapy and uses assessment to guide the therapeutic process.
