Dr. Belinda Seagram is a registered clinical psychologist with a PhD from York University and over 26 years of combined experience in clinical practice, research, teaching and supervision.
Using an emotions-focussed, competency-based framework, Dr. Seagram works with individuals, families, and organizations, assisting them in recovering from the devastating effects of trauma and the accompanying addictions which often result from such experiences. Dr. Seagram is trained in EMDR, CBT and CPT.
A large part of her current practice involves working with military members, veterans and first responders overcoming the effects of operational stress injuries, which often take the form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Belinda is interested in understanding how past experiences shape an individual’s identity, and the manner in which they define themselves, their relationships, and the world around them. Dr. Seagram is interested in building resiliency, helping to restore health and buffer against future adversity.
Belinda also has extensive training in couple’s therapy. She completed year-long externships in both Emotions-Focused and Psycho-biological Approaches to Couple’s Therapy. Belinda has 17 years of experience with high-risk teenagers in residential, hospital and community-based settings, 15 years working with adults, with 7 of those years working with Correctional Service of Canada as Acting Chief Psychologist in a medium-security penitentiary for federal offenders.
Dr. Seagram designed and delivered training programs for the Crisis Negotiation Team of the Ontario Provincial Police and was involved in forensic investigations in Ontario and Nunavut. After leaving the prison, Belinda worked for 4 years with the Pine River Institute, a residential treatment program for adolescents struggling with serious substance abuse, in the capacity of Wilderness Therapist, Clinical Director and consultant.
