ABOUT ME

Profile picture of Patty Hills, MSW, RSW - Registered Social Worker & Certified EMDR Therapist

I am passionate about working with you to resolve the root cause of your distress so you can live the life that you want to live. Whether that you are looking to reduce the impact of your mental health symptoms, build your confidence and skills that you can manage the day-today stressors of your life, feel more connected and effective in your parenting role, or to strengthen your connection and skills for managing conflict with your partner, you are in the right place. 

 

I am a OCSWSSW Registered Social Worker.  I completed the Master of Social Work program from Wilfried Laurier University in 2022 with an emphasis on working with individuals and groups. I achieved my EMDRIA certification in EMDR in 2019. I have been practicing for over 20 years working with children, adolescents, adults, caregivers and families in children's mental health.

 

I opened my own private social work practice near Gorrie, ON in 2016. I specialize in the areas of single incident trauma, complex trauma, on-going chronic stress, PTSD, attachment, anxiety & depression. 

 

 I continue to participate in ongoing training & consultation in EMDR in order to provide the most effective & evidence based treatment. I adhere to my College's guidelines and standards as a commitment to providing you with safe and ethical therapy.  

 

You do not need to suffer alone. I strive to provide a therapeutic space where you feel welcomed, your story matters, and your innate resiliency in honoured.
