Maryann Gaulin

Maryanne Gaulin EMDR Therapy

Services: Meditation

Maryanne Gaulin is a Trauma specialist. EMDR therapy, addictions counselling services, and eating disorders. Yoga and Meditation. Maryanne has been working with those who’ve experienced trauma, for years. She has experience working in individualized, residential addictions treatment centres, and outpatient settings. She is a registered provisional psychologist and specializes in EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. She believes in using a holistic approach, mind-body-spirit, when it comes to healing from trauma and addiction. When a person can heal from their pain, they then can step into their power and purpose. They can begin to experience felling happy, healthy, and free. EMDR therapy can be used to free a person from trauma, PTSD, anxiety and panic, depression, sleep problems, phobias, complicated grief, addictions, and pain relief.

There is a system inherent in all of us that is physiologically oriented to process information to a state of health and resolve. However, when something traumatizing or overwhelming occurs (i.e. a car accident or shooting) or being repeatedly subjected to distress (i.e. childhood neglect or abuse) our natural coping mechanism can be overloaded. The result can be the disturbing event or experiences remain frozen, stuck, or unprocessed within us. These unprocessed memories and feelings are stored in the limbic system in an emotional form rather than in a verbal ‘story’ mode. The limbic systems traumatic memories can be triggered any time events are experienced that are similar to the difficult ones a person has already been through. The memory itself can be forgotten, but the painful feelings, such as anxiety, panic, fear, anger, and despair are continually being triggered preventing the person from being fully present in the moment. Our ability to live in the present and learn from new experiences can therefore become inhibited. EMDR helps create the connections between the brain’s memory networks, enabling the brain to process the traumatic memory in a very natural way. Bilateral stimulation, rapid eye movements, tapping, etc all assist the brain to reprocess the information to a state of completion.

This is all done to help a person process the information or memories that have been stuck within them, in order to help free them of the negative impact those memories have had on their current life experience.

Maryanne also utilized meditation, yoga therapy, breath work and kundalini yoga to assist clients who would like to bust through their blocks and live the life they may not have even known was possible

Maryanne is grateful to be working in an environment that focuses on treating clients from a holistic perspective.

Just as health is not simply the absence of disease, healing also implies that there is a journey involved that has the intention of integrating all of these components to achieve balance, wholeness and overall wellness.

To this end, Deborah is becoming certified by the Deepak Chopra Center for Wellbeing to teach programs for Mind-Body Healing with her clients. She has created the Journey Toward Healing Series, monthly seminars teaching the principles of healing and integration of mind, body and spirit.

Dr. Rob Roth

Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Rob Roth is a Naturopathic Doctor with clinical expertise in pain management and injury rehabilitation, where he uses comprehensive orthopedic assessments to assist his patients in becoming pain free. In addition to injury rehabilitation, integrative cancer therapies that focus on enhancing conventional cancer treatments while reducing their toxic burden also forms a cornerstone of Dr. Roth’s practice. These include intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapies, oral supplementation, diet, and mapping the patient’s genetic profile to assess the body’s terrain and areas that need repair based on genetic weaknesses. However, the utility of genetic testing is greater reaching than just cancer; this science has come a long way in the last couple decades and we can also capitalize on it in family medicine to understand how genetic errors can lead to mental health disorders, autism, chronic pain, cancer, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and more. Dr. Roth is one of a handful of doctors using genetic analysis coupled with nutrigenomic treatment plans to address genetic errors that lead to chronic diseases. Dr. Roth believes in individualized medicine that addresses the root cause of disease, a primary reason for his work in genetics
