Maria Del Carmen Sarmiento, RP, MEd, EMDR Certified Therapist


I believe in working on the premise that people can self-regulate when they increase their awareness of their experiences. I recognize that a person needs to give meaning to their experiences and their existence. My promise is to stay with your present experience and trust in your process. I will accompany you in moving toward increased awareness, contact and integration. By becoming aware, you would be more equipped to make informed choices and live a more meaningful life.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with experience working with adults who have experienced trauma in their lives. My primary practice is Gestalt Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I also integrate Narrative Therapy and mindfulness-based practices into my work.

According to Gestalt practice, “we change when we become aware of what we are, instead of trying to become what we are not.”

EMDR therapy enables people to heal from symptoms and emotional distress resulting from overwhelming life experiences. It is an effective treatment for trauma, psychological stress and post-traumatic stress disorder.

I am a caring, compassionate and non-judgmental counsellor who provides a safe space for you. My focus is to create the conditions that support your growth. I will accompany you in the process of self-discovery and return to your true self.

Counselling services are also available in Spanish.
