a tree trunk full of treatments..

You've got a lot going on inside. 

We specialize in evidence based treatments

to help you find relief.

We recognize the diversity and complexity of the human experience.

 

Each person brings a unique worldview, multiple cultures and life experiences to the therapy room and psychotherapy is not the one-stop quick fix we'd all like it to be.

 

Over the years, we've developed a substantial trunk full of psychotherapy frameworks that work alone or can be interwoven to suit your unique needs and goals for therapy.

 

Below are the psychotherapeutic frameworks we specialize in.

So I've decided to start collecting Lighthouses. This pic is the path to my first.._🌅_Asi

skilled, capable, compassionate.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

IFS is about working collaboratively with the many different Parts that make of the inner experience unique to you. Derived from the concept of multiplicity of the mind; the impact of adverse life experience in our developmental years; and the recognition that every person was born as an authentic, individual Self. IFS seeks to explain why we behave, think, feel or respond in ways that feel contradictory or self sabotaging to our personal greater good. We seek to uncover the Parts of you who are responding to life in ways you may not need today, and work toward healing the wounded parts inside. 

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a treatment for stuck, painful memories and your nervous system. It is the first line of defense for those suffering with ptsd, c-ptsd, anxiety, panic, depression, trauma, negative self beliefs and more. It is a heavily protocoled, heavily studied, non-talk therapy treatment, that weaves humanness with neuroscience in a compassionate, directive manner. It leaves you with freshly adapted information about the past to allow your memory to file it away, and lesson the impact of triggers on your nervous system. Desensitization phases are facilitated in 60-90 minute sessions (with treatment set up and evaluation in 60 minute sessions). 

Narrative Therapy 
(NT)

Narrative therapy reinforces how we internalize meaning of our experiences is not universal or static - rather is developed through subjective interpretations of our life experience, culture, society and worldview. As a blank canvas when we were born, life experiences, interpretation and conditions began to throw paint all over our canvas into the messy piece of art we feel like today. With NT we seek to understand the constructs and elements of experience of the paint, and develop for ourselves new scaffolding from which we can climb to reach new meaning and perception. Here we uncover areas where fact and evidence were not included in the creation of us as we seek new meaning underlying the beliefs about ourselves. 

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) 

DBT is all about behaviours and the synthesis of opposites. It recognizes that living in 'all or nothing' extremes cause significant inner suffering in the complexity of the human experience, and an ever changing world. DBT offers practical skills to help find that centre balance between accepting reality as it is, AND changing our circumstances or environments in ways that are less problematic for you and your relationships. Learn new ways to self regulate your emotions, in distress, in contact with others, and just to get a little more peace from the monkey mind through mindfulness.
