How long will therapy take?
This is an excellent question… shows your motivation. The short answer is that it depends on what you want. The long answer is that it depends on how difficult your life has been, what you need, want, and what personal development you have already done and want to do.
Some clients want to focus on one challenge while others want to clean out the whole backpack of past disturbing memories.
Life changes and challenges that bring individuals into therapy are: complex trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunctions, loneliness, addictions, emotional regulation, family of origin issues, separation, divorce, grief, parenting, anger management, self esteem issues, career path difficulties and lack of close relationships.
Group Therapy : Stress,Trauma & PTSD Groups
I believe that post-traumatic growth, healing and recovery have relational components to them. This is why I would like to invite you to join our Stress, Trauma and PTSD Groups.
Relational Therapy: Trauma Impacted Couples & Families
You might be struggling with your intimate partner, children or other family members. The people who are closest to us are often the ones that can make us feel raw and vulnerable. By using Cognitive-Behavioral Conjoint Therapy (CBCT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and attachment theory, we can help you work towards feeling safe, connected and secure in your relationships.
EMDR Therapy for Therapists/Helpers
Vicarious traumatization/Secondary Traumatic Stress is a transformation in the self of a therapist or a helper that results from empathic engagement with traumatized clients/patients and their reports of traumatic experiences. Its hallmark is a disruption in the trauma workers' perceived meaning and hope. EMDR Therapy for Therapist is an opportunity for therapist to resource their nervous system as they support individuals in need. Sessions are typically 90 to 180 minutes in length (10 minutes administration).
