Hi, I’m
Dr. Cameron Froude.

I started Bliss in Being after helping thousands of people recover from trauma, anxiety, PTSD, and other highly stressful situations. Today, I’m proud to offer therapy and coaching alongside my values-aligned colleagues (more about them below).  No matter the depths or lengths of your suffering, you deserve to live a blissful, fulfilling life.

As a fellowship trained medical family therapist with a hunger for learning, I create a highly customized healing experience for each client. The foundation of our work always includes first-line evidence-based treatments, such as EMDR and cognitive behavioral therapy, to address your specific concerns. I then blend edgier approaches, such as human design and quantum consciousness, to undo cycles of anxiety and trauma to repattern into your highest self.
