Lara Longo

Private Mentor, Psychotherapist

As a Compassionate Inquiry mentor, my overall intention is to collaborate with you to create a safe space that will support your journey of learning, exploration and deepening into the Compassionate Inquiry approach. My mentoring style is rooted in an effort to understand your experience while fostering transparency and authenticity in our relationship. We will work together to establish your personal learning goals and adapt our direction as needed as you progress through your stages of learning. I have completed training in supervision and meet the requirements of a Clinical Supervisor with the College of Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO), and as such, I am informed of best practices in supervision and mentoring. In my private practice I offer consultation to mental health practitioners, psychotherapists and social workers.

At my core, I am a psychotherapist/trauma therapist with a special interest in treating complex and intergenerational trauma. The foundation of my work is informed by the Compassionate Inquiry approach. I have been following Dr. Gabor’s Mate’s work since 2012, and today, as a Founding Facilitator, Certification Coordinator and Mentor, I continue to learn, expand and deepen in my own journey of Compassionate Inquiry. I work with clients holistically. I see individuals as part of a whole interrelated system of which mind, body, culture, context, spirituality and Earth merge and are inextricably linked. I integrate multiple trauma therapy modalities in my work including EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Art Psychotherapy, Trauma Sensitive Yoga and Meditation and Ancient Wisdom Teachings. I have worked alongside Indigenous community for most of my career, and I have been profoundly shaped by these collaborations. All of these modalities have been integral within my own healing journey, and it is with much humility and honour that I share these teachings with you as a Compassionate Inquiry Mentor.
