Drs. Shari Geller and Shelley McMain, both nationally and internationally recognized clinical psychologists and educators, launched the Centre for MindBody Health (CMBH) in 2015. Their friendship and shared interests in psychological health and wellness go back decades. It has fueled their commitment to bring together a group of expert-trained clinicians who provide the highest quality treatments. Shelley and Shari have assembled an exceptional team across many areas of mental health, addictions and trauma. All therapies are based in mindfulness and emotion-focused principles with specialization in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Mindfulness and Self Compassion. We believe in a personalized approach to treatment grounded in a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship.
CMBH also strives to foster excellence in training and education for the professional community. We offer a range of clinical trainings and professional development throughout the year. Our annual community training every November/December is a community of practice that welcomes you.
