Trauma Therapy

Trauma can make us feel stuck, lost, hopeless and alone. It can negatively impact day-to-day life and our most important relationships. Our skilled team of therapists believe that no one should have to stay stuck in this dark place. We are committed to helping our clients find safety and healing through collaborative care and research-supported treatment approaches.

 

Symptoms of trauma include:

  • Intrusive thoughts

  • Flashbacks/nightmares

  • Poor emotion regulation

  • Difficulty finding enjoyment in things

  • Substance abuse/numbing behaviours

  • Struggling to connect with others

  • Difficulty focusing

  • Difficulties with sleep and eating

  • Feeling on edge/defensive

  • Bodily tension

 

These symptoms can persist for months or years and can feel very debilitating over time. Traumatic events are not limited to accidents or experiences of war. Trauma can occur whenever we feel we are trapped, unsafe, and helpless and can occur on a physical, emotional, and/or psychological basis.

 

How does trauma therapy work?

Our therapists start by creating safety with you and then work to help you build self-regulation, self-empowerment, and help you create new neural pathways to feel safe in the world once again. We use evidence-based approaches including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

No one should have to go it alone. Reach out today to start on your journey of healing.
