We offer both in-person and online individual therapy sessions that are based on trauma-informed treatment. The majority of people have experienced some form of trauma, and trauma-informed therapists are aware of this and are familiar with the various ways that it affects a person’s mind, body, and spirit. The client’s sense of safety is prioritized and maintained during the course of trauma-informed therapy. Development of interdependence and autonomy are the ultimate goals of trauma-informed therapy. Our therapists are Certified Clinical Trauma Specialists possessing an understanding of the science and biology behind trauma and stress, as well as the framework required in therapy to heal the effects of trauma from the mind as well as from one’s body.
Trauma-informed therapy is an approach to therapy designed to cater to the individual’s safety, support, and self-regulation on a holistic level. The following are some fundamental principles of the trauma-informed approach:
A psychologically, physically, and emotionally secure setting for therapy
An awareness that coping mechanisms perform significant survival functions & are biologically appropriate responses
Recognizing one’s innate healing abilities
Collaboration & empowerment to facilitate a culture of interdependency
Aiming to foster resilience and post-traumatic growth
Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can aid in establishing a healthy dynamic between partners. Couples therapy assists you in repairing your relationship if you’re experiencing relationship issues, or in deepening your existing relationship with your partner. Through the use of co-regulation techniques and resource building, couples therapy facilitates couples in establishing and improving healthy communication. Couples counseling aims to build and sustain a healthy relationship and manage obstacles as a team, working together rather than competing with one another. Couples therapy can further facilitate couples in the process of collaborative decision-making in cases of amicable separation.

Following a trauma-informed framework, the sessions are structured to emphasize capacity building and co-regulation within the family, leading to healthy family dynamics.
The individuals can learn and develop techniques to improve family dynamics, express their concerns, and foster healthy communication
It helps in examining family roles, rules, and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict and discuss methods to work through these issues
EMDR is a non-verbal form of therapy that facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and adverse life experiences to bring them to an adaptive resolution. This therapy functions by paying attention to the traumatic and distressing memory for a brief period of time while undergoing bilateral stimulation (primarily eye movements) which is linked to a decrease in the emotional intensity and vividness of the traumatic memories. It functions by focusing on and reshaping the feelings, attitudes, beliefs, and bodily sensations that underlie the symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
During the therapy, the client concentrates on the distressing incident for short periods of time while keeping their attention on an external object. The presence of dual attention activates the natural healing reserves within the brain leading to reprocessing of the distressing memory. Following a successful EMDR therapy session, restrictive beliefs are reconstructed and stress arousal is reduced.
