Trauma and PTSD

Amanda Artese
Art therapist
Dr. Amanda Artese is a licensed clinical psychologist who has several years of experience working with children, adolescents, and families. Dr. Artese believes that each family is unique and applies this concept to each relationship. The process begins with an initial phone consultation to help both Dr. Artese and the potential client determine goodness of fit. It is important in choosing a therapist that both the child and family feel comfortable with the therapist. From the onset I work with the family to best understand the client and develop a treatment approach that is tailored to the family’s needs.

Dr. Artese believes that the client and their family lead change in therapy and the therapist works along side them to support and facilitate the change. Therapeutic style and approach varies based on the clients age and need of the family, and includes play, cognitive behavioral, and parent centered therapy.
Dr. Artese has a wide range of clinical experience diagnosing and treating various disorders. Dr. Artese has been trained heavily in treating complex psychological issues, including, PTSD, trauma, abuse and neglect, anxiety, depression, suicidal thinking and behaviors, ADHD, and behavioral disruptions with individuals ranging in age from 4-18.

Want to feel happier and more hopeful about life? My Motto is “hope, healing and health”. I help people to develop renewed hope in themselves, their future and their relationships. HEALING IS POSSIBLE. I work collaboratively with clients to elicit their strengths, develop new skills, problem solve and find the “BEST FIT” therapeutic approach for healing. Optimum health is achieved by balance in our emotional, physical and spiritual lives.

I have advanced training in trauma therapy and use EMDR to help people heal. I successfully use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat depression and anxiety. I love to work with couples, and I use a Gottman approach to relationship counseling which is very effective in teaching people to strengthen their relationships and reduce conflict.
As an experienced psychologist, I use my years of experience to help my clients resolve their problems. Transitions in life are not always easy, and having support during difficult times can be helpful. My office is in a great location, accessible and has lots of free parking. Call me for a free telephone consultation.

My approach to therapy relies on establishing a collaborative relationship with my patient(s) so that we can work together to identify the habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that keep you from enjoying the quality of life you would like for yourself. I create a supportive environment that allows you the patient to talk openly without fear of judgment. By the time you leave therapy you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will take away a set of skills that will help you effectively cope with whatever challenges life may present in the future.

I specialize in working with trauma loss and grief across the development spectrum. I see patients as young as five years old whom I engage in play therapy, adolescents and adults. I also treat depression and anxiety disorders. I see individual couples and families.
I provide services in Spanish. I also see patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds and ethnicities. I have developed some expertise in cross cultural issues.

Dr. Kristin Werner
Licensed Counselor
Hypnotherapy is frequently requested in my practice. This modality facilitates change in sensations, perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Hypnosis empowers individuals to find healing within and is very effective with a wide variety of medical and psychological conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, fear, asthma, IBS, PTSD, and self-esteem.

My approach includes blending Eastern and Western somatic modalities with cognitive and trans-personal counselling psychology. With a strong focus on mindfulness, this process allows you to become aware of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations and how they manifest in your body. Somatic psychotherapy differs from traditional psychotherapy in that it explores and relies on the wisdom of the mind-body-spirit connection as a powerful gateway for healing, expanding awareness, and developing resilience.

MEd, RPsych
I am a registered psychologist with experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have used my extensive training to help clients improve their mood, self-esteem, coping skills, and relational functioning. I have worked with children and adults recovering from experiences of abuse and those wanting to stop the cycle of abuse. I am cognizant of cultural factors that impact all individuals and I have experience working with clients of various ethnic backgrounds.

My strong background in trauma, attachment, family systems and developmental needs enhances my work. I integrate CBT, Narrative, Solution Focused, Mindfullness, Play Therapy and other modalities. Together we will work from a strengths based perspective and will explore and remove obstacles to well-being. I often use creative means of expression to reach goals.

I bring a deep respect and appreciation for the uniqueness of each individual, attuned to their many strengths, hopes and dreams. Whether you are a parent concerned about your child, an adult seeking individual or marital counselling, or an individual seeking positive family changes, I will work with you collaboratively to achieve your goals.

Gary J Meiers
PhD, RPsych, LMFT
In my practice I see a wide range of clients: adults, teens, children, adults who have experienced developmental traumas [sexual, physical & emotional abuse] (often in the context of their own dysfunctional family of origin), clients with PTSD, couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationship, families looking for new ways to resolve old problems, and individuals who keep repeating the past. Depending on the presenting problem and a client’s history, I often integrate EMDR Therapy and Gestalt Therapy and/or Structural Family Therapy.

I have been working in the counselling field since 1970, receiving my PhD in Counselling Psychology from The University of Alberta in 1992. I was licensed in California in 1980 as a Marriage, Family, and Child Therapist. In 1989 I became registered as a Psychologist in Alberta. I have completed levels I and II of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy training from the EMDR Institute in 1998.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist
Do you need help becoming unstuck in your life, and letting go of the trauma that has prevented you from moving forward and achieving your goals? I can help. I work in the areas of self-esteem, emotional regulation, eating disorders, relationships, work, life and overall satisfaction to help people regain stability and a sense of safety and security in their lives. Whether you are self-harming or experiencing anxiety, depression, panic, unexplainable sadness or disconnection from yourself, my goal is to work with you towards achieving a sense of grounding, healing and hope.

I have over ten years of experience working with Complex PTSD, OCD, BPD, and other mental health issues. I specialize in helping people to redefine trauma, viewing it as incidents fostering beliefs, feelings and ways of being in the world which unless challenged, continue to drive our thoughts, feelings, behaviours.
