Trauma and PTSD
I help couples strengthen their relationships, support individuals healing from abuse & domestic violence, and provide Biblically-integrative therapy. My desire is to help people rebuild relationships, equip them to manage conflict, heal past wounds, and discover who they were created to be. I have a special place in my heart for people who’ve experienced abuse in childhood or marriage. As a therapist, my goal is to pull alongside you during times of hurt and frustration, work to make sure you’re understood, help sort out complicated emotions, and create a plan that helps you become a healthier, happier you.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve helped in developing coping skills, increasing productive thinking, improving relationships, & overcoming traumatic issues in a safe, nurturing environment. My approach is down-to-earth & focuses on getting to know you, and using techniques that have been researched & found most effective for your problems.
My clinical orientation is most impacted by my training as an EMDR therapist. I have completed EMDR basic training levels I and II. In addition, I am trained in using EMDR with substance abuse and compulsive behaviors as well as complex trauma and dissociation.
EMDR has been shown to be an effective therapy for panic attacks, grief performance anxiety, eating disorders, addiction , stress reduction and dissociation disorders. EMDR has been shown to be effective for children, teens and adults. Please call for a free consultation to explore more on how you can find hope and healing.
I work with adults and adolescents who are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, life transitions, post traumatic stress. I use an ecclectic counselling approach, which I fine tune according to each client’s specific clinical needs.
I strive to fully understand my clients’ unique frame of reference, and to help motivate them to make meaningful changes in their lives. I also teach concrete and helpful strategies for stress management, and successful communication.
You will learn new skills that will help you see yourself and the world differently and how to distinguish between situations you can change and those you cannot. Please specify preference in email for Halifax or Bedford office. First 30 minute initial consultation free.
