Relational (Couples) Counselling
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.
Stress,Trauma, Vicarious Trauma & PTSD Treatment
Strong emotions caused by the event create changes in the brain that may result in PTSD. All people with Complex Trauma and PTSD have lived through a traumatic event that caused them to fear for their lives, see horrible things, and feel helpless. My goal is to help you work through and move past your experience of traumatic incident(s).
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).
