Are you going through something that is
emotionally difficult? Feeling stress and anxiety?
Are you experiencing symptoms that you are not sure what to do with, or have tried to deal with for a long time without success? Have you been through a traumatic life experience and haven’t processed it? Is your relationship falling apart? Are you feeling anxious all day? Having a hard time coping with life?
All of us have experienced things that are upsetting, stressful and overwhelming. None of us are immune to the difficulties of human struggles, and some of us have had more than our share. Sometimes we need help to get through.
Mental health professionals can assess your symptoms and work with you to build a treatment plan to resolve your concerns.
Some of the methods we use
Mindfulness Based Approaches
Working with the body and nervous system in order to experience being fully present and encourage self-compassion and acceptance.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Talking therapy to manage problems by looking at the impact of thoughts, feelings and actions.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
The gold standard in trauma treatment to resolve traumatic symptoms, memories and triggers.
Emotion-Focused + Gottman Method Couples Therapy
Attachment based approaches to alter negative relational patterns and create stronger connections between partners.
