    Trauma Therapy

    Most people are affected at sometime in their life by trauma - an event that causes them to experience intense fear for their physical or emotional well-being or survival. This event may come in the form of a car accident, death of a loved one, natural disaster, physical assault, war, or other physical or emotional events whether recurring or singular in experience.

    While some people recover quite quickly from such traumatic events, often with the help of a support structure (e.g. family, friends, faith, etc.), others take longer in the recovery process. However, some people experience events that are so overwhelming to the emotions, they prevent the individual from fully processing the experience.

    People who have not been able to successfully process a traumatic event, may experience a variety of physical and emotional symptoms. These symptoms can include sleeplessness, nightmares, emotional numbness, startle responses, panic, anger, and loss of energy to name but a few. In some instances, certain stimuli (e.g. sights, sounds, smells) may even trigger memories of the traumatic event, resulting in a feeling of the stress, fear, or grief that accompanied the original experience.

    When trauma is not easily processed and is left unresolved, the emotional wounds can become more devastating than the original event. In trauma therapy, clients learn how to reduce or manage the overwhelming emotions associated with a trauma, in order to move on to the healing process.

    Both military and civilian clients have been helped to address and successfully process traumatic events. With such issues, often (not always) EMDR therapy is combined with other strategies that are tailored to the needs of each person. Through this tailored therapy, clients learn how to reduce or manage their overwhelming emotions, in order to move on to the healing process.

    Relationship Issues

    We are committed to helping you enact positive changes in your relationship, or to help you to move on if you decide the relationship cannot be healed.

    The majority of our clients (individuals or couples) with relationship issues are in a crisis that is affecting or threatening not only their relationship, but their emotional well-being as well. Usually the crisis has a relatively long history of building stress, anger, resentment, and hopelessness between the partners.

    Individual and Couple therapy has helped our clients to recognize and resolve conflicts, communicate more effectively, negotiate differences, experience healing, and improve their relationship. As well, when issues truly are irreconcilable therapy has helped in separating from the relationship and working through the emotions and stages that accompany its ending.

    Regardless of the issues or struggles you are facing, you can experience a renewed future. Through therapy, you can learn to draw on your existing strengths as well as gain new skills to address the issues facing your relationship and make well-thought-out decisions about your future.

    Individual Therapy

    We all experience problems, issues, and disappointments in daily living. Sometimes these pass with time, or with the help of family or friends.

    However when problems or issues begin to affect the quality of life, act as obstacles to realizing personal potential, or seem overwhelming and unsolvable, therapy can help you to regain stability in your life.

    Working collaboratively, your therapist can guide you through the challenges you are facing. Therapy can help you develop communication and conflict resolution skills, learn relaxation techniques, as well as understand and use your strengths, so that you can enjoy your life more fully.

    Emotional healing and positive change is possible; you can become empowered to have the life you really want to experience.
