Individual Therapy

Will allow us to meet and discuss your thoughts and emotions in a safe, genuine, caring environment. I will help identify concerns and areas of personal dissatisfaction as well as personal strengths and growth. Throughout the therapeutic process, we may explore current and past relationships, phase of life issues, and a variety of stressors commonly part of our challenging, modern lifestyles. As your therapy progresses you may achieve greater clarity in understanding your unique personal narrative, you are also provided with the tools, skills, and awareness to make lasting changes and live a more satisfying life.

 

 

 

Couples Therapy

Couples sessions are means of reconnecting, rebuilding, resolving problems, conflicts, and loss of trust that you have not been able to effectively resolve. It involves both partners sitting down to discuss your concerns, thoughts, strengths and feelings. I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. This guides my work with couples, with the intention is to help you and your partner gain a better understanding of each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marriage Preparation

The goal of our 5 Private 1-hour Sessions, is to support couples committed to building a lasting marriage by equipping them with the skills necessary to navigate these important relationships. Topics covered include: strengthening connections, managing different personality types, building a common purpose, merging finances, taking care of each other, staying healthy in the relationship, communicating effectively and getting out of a conflict. General topics will be covered but since it's just for you both; more focus will be on areas of specific concern or interest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This program is open to couples in a committed relationship, couples preparing for engagement, couples engaged, or for newly married couples.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is evidence-based treatment and integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and many other conditions and symptoms including: disturbing memories, negative beliefs, stress reduction, panic attacks, stress reduction, dissociative disorders, sexual and/or physical abuse, and personality disorders.

- The Flash Technique - 
Making intense trauma memories more accessible for EMDR Processing

"The Flash Technique (FT) is a recently developed therapeutic intervention for reducing the disturbance associated with traumatic or other distressing memories. Unlike many conventional trauma therapy interventions, FT is a minimally intrusive option that does not require the client to consciously engage with the traumatic memory. This allows the client to process traumatic memories without feeling distress."

The Grief Recovery Method® is a practice-based, evidence-informed program that has been shown to effectively influence components of grief and grief recovery. It is a method that is a heart-centred and action-oriented program that is designed to help you complete the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss of any kind. Whether you are grieving due to a death, divorce, romantic break-up, or any of the other 40 losses that can create the feelings of grief, the program will equip you with the tools to complete any unresolved emotions that are still causing you pain. People say “you have to let go” and “move on” but they don’t tell you how. The Grief Recovery Method®, developed and refined over the past 30 years, teaches you how to recover from loss with supportive, emotional guidance every step of the way.
