Trauma and PTSD

Julie Fant
Clinical Social Work/Therapist
I understand it’s difficult to find a therapist, which is why I offer FREE 20 minute phone consultations. This gives us a sense of how to meet your needs. If you want someone who can understand what you are experiencing, just give me a call or email me.

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.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I specialize in working with adult women, children and adolescent girls experiencing trauma, anxiety and addiction. In therapy, I will help explore how past events may be impacting you in the present. Often the stressful events we endure in childhood or adulthood manifest through symptoms of anxiety, depression, performance issues, flashbacks, relationship issues, addiction or overall feelings of hopelessness. I believe that everyone has everything within to heal. My role is to guide you on the healing journey and help you find your own internal strength and resourcefulness.

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.

The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy/healthy coping strategies, personality characteristics and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. All the while using a strength-based approach. After the assessment, we can explore your problem areas through collaborative discussions. For some people, just being able to talk freely about a problem brings relief, being validated and supported helps in the letting go process. The early stages of counselling will help you clarify what’s troubling you.

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.
