EMDR Therapy Toronto - Ruth Godoy Counselling - Trauma Therapist Toronto

My name is Ruth Godoy and thank you for stopping by. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) specializing in providing EMDR Therapy and other trauma therapies to treat anxiety, C-PTSD, childhood trauma, and challenges in parenting. I belong to the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and I am also a board-certified Genetic Counsellor.

I have undergone specialized training in EMDR, perinatal mental health and perinatal grief and loss. My 10+ years of experience as a prenatal genetic counsellor, where I have worked with the best at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto, also comes in handy. I have endured and healed from postpartum mental health challenges, especially with my first daughter, born at the beginning of the pandemic. I have also dealt with compassion fatigue and burnout.

I grew up in Venezuela and left when the collapse of democratic institutions, political unrest, violence and the ensuing deterioration of its public services became intolerable. I have come a long way in healing my own anxiety and PTSD symptoms, thanks to EMDR Therapy and other trauma therapy modalities. As a long-term therapy client, I am aware of the challenges, discomforts, doubts, and transformations that can occur during therapy.

As a mom of two girls, I empathize with moms and parents trying to prioritize their children while balancing relationships, work and household responsibilities and grappling with a rapidly changing sense of self. The challenges can be exacerbated to the next level if you also experienced a high-risk pregnancy, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, medical complications, or struggled to become a parent.

I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and a Master of Science in Human Genetics from Sarah Lawrence College. I love cookies, painting, walking, and snuggling with my Siberian cat. I believe in an open, respectful, non-judgemental therapeutic space.
