Miranda Arellano

When I was younger, I had a really good experience with a therapist that changed the direction my life was headed. That experience led to my desire to help others and eventually, after pursuing many other dreams, I signed up for a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Soon after, I completed a Master of Counselling Psychology degree and registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). As a Registered Psychotherapist in the North Bay, Ontario, area, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients. I have experience and training to support clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, CPTSD, relationship challenges, addiction, anger management, chronic pain, grief, infidelity, and daily or work-related stress. 

My lived experience with trauma led to my passion for helping others with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. I have advanced training and am a Certified EMDR Therapist. I have additional EMDR-related training in DeTUR (addictions), EMDR Protocol for Recent Critical Incidents and Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-PRECI), Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST) for individuals and groups, and EMDR Integrative Treatment Protocol for Ongoing Traumatic Stress (IGTP-OTS) for individuals and Groups. I also incorporate ego state therapy and internal family systems (IFS) therapy for clients with complex trauma.


As a client of EMDR, I can attest to its powerful effects, and I am grateful to utilize this wonderful modality in my practice.  I also love working with couples and am trained in the Gottman Method couples therapy. I specialize in treating affairs, addictions, and trauma in couples. I truly care for all of my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. I look forward to hearing from you and walking with you on your healing journey.

EMDR Intensives

ASSYST-G is a group procedure designed to fill the gap between Psychological First Aid (PFA) and High-Intensity Intervention psychotherapy (e.g., EMDR, TF-CBT) after a critical incident or adverse experience when the person shows severe symptoms of psychological distress, physiological reactivity, and/or deterioration in current functioning. The group nature of this procedure allows for therapists to serve a large number of people in a short period of time.

ASSYST-I is designed to focus on the client’s nervous system regulation. It is utilized in rapid response settings and offered to client’s immediately after a traumatic experience (within hours, days or weeks). 

An EMDR intensive is a more immersive and therapeutic experience than traditional EMDR

sessions. It typically involves several hours of therapy per day, over a period of several days, with the goal of achieving rapid trauma resolution. This format allows for a deeper and more thorough processing of traumatic memories than is possible in traditional weekly sessions.
