We use the most effective therapy interventions that are matched with the needs of our clients. We encourage clients to do homework between sessions to maximize the benefit of the therapy process.
Some of the approaches we use include:
Cognitive behavioral interventions
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
Critical incident management
Communications and social skills training
The human experience includes a broad spectrum of emotions. We work with adults, children and adolescents who want to improve their ability to manage their emotions successfully. We employ a wide variety of therapy modalities, tailored to clients’ needs, to expand skills for regulating emotions.
We help clients improve their well-being by addressing depression, anxiety, anger, grief, loss and phobias. By identifying unhelpful core beliefs and replacing them with more effective thinking patterns, we help them move beyond emotional distress to more inner peace and joy.
We work with adults, adolescents, couples and families to help develop effective communication and problem-solving skills, with a goal of improving relationship satisfaction.
Outcomes of relationship or family therapy might include creating fulfilling relationships and resilient families; restoring harmony in conflicted relationships; dealing with sexual problems; expanding social support networks; setting appropriate boundaries with family and friends; addressing affairs; learning more effective parenting skills; reducing emotional and behavioural issues for children; addressing individual issues that impact relationships and families; preventing or addressing domestic violence; creating healthy and respectful separation and divorce.
Individuals sometimes seek counselling if they realize they are using substances or behaviors in ways that negatively impact themselves or their relationships. Some individuals seek help if they recognize they have an unhealthy relationship with food. We work with children, adolescents and adults who want to understand and change their dysfunctional or addictive behaviors.
Some of the positive changes they can expect are recognizing the impact of the addictive behaviour on self and others; overcoming addictions to substances such as alcohol or drugs; overcoming behavioural addictions such as pornography, sex, internet and gambling; developing healthy relationships with food; improving body image; choosing healthier options for soothing uncomfortable feelings; making contingency plans and learning relapse prevention strategies.
