Desné Doman, Clinical psychologist
I have been working with individuals just like yourself.
I know what it is like to not feel happy or not feel good about yourself.
As a therapist, I am here to help you get your inner peace back so that you can enjoy being who you are and build relationships that your heart yearns for.
How I work
People who work with me say that I’m down-to-earth and non-judgemental, and they like being able to understand what we are doing and how it’s going to improve their life.
My key focus area is trauma – PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Complex Trauma which is traumatizing incidents that occur repeatedly over a period of time. Trauma is a root cause or many mental health disorders including anxiety and depression.
The modality I use daily and have a 1000 plus hours of experience with is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
As a Clinical Psychologist I will assess you and discuss a plan that may integrate a number of evidence-based modalities including:
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR),
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),
- Internal Family Systems Therapy,
- Schema-focused Cognitive Therapy,
- Motivational Interviewing,
- Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy,
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT),
- Psychedelic Integration Therapy,
Since each client is unique, treatment methods are jointly chosen to fit your needs and strengths.
As a long term meditator, I use a mindfulness-informed approach to therapy.
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and hold a Master’s degree (Dean’s Merit Award) in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelor’s degree with Honours in psychology.
