Therapy can help you manage those feelings and work through them in a safe environment.

Therapy can be a powerful tool for helping you heal from abuse.

Therapy can help you set healthy boundaries and offer the tools and support you need to create the connection you crave.

Therapy can help you identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to social anxiety. We can help you develop a more positive and confident self-image.

Therapy can help you explore why you feel the way you do, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and give you the tools you need to manage your current situation and start living with more ease. We can help you make changes, one step at a time.

Trauma

Is a past traumatic event in your life keeping you from moving forward?

Trauma can cause symptoms such as intrusive memories, avoidance behaviours, hypervigilance, and feelings of anxiety, guilt, or shame. Emotional and physical responses to trauma can impact daily life and relationships. Therapy can help individuals who have experienced trauma process their experiences and develop healthy coping mechanisms. With therapy, you may experience a greater sense of control, improved relationships, a stronger sense of self-worth, and a renewed sense of hope for the future.

Workplace Issues and Career Challenges

Is the greatest source of your stress coming from outside the home?

Workplace issues and career challenges can bring up a range of emotions, including stress, fear, exhaustion, and overwhelm. Feeling stuck in your job, experiencing workplace harassment/bullying, a lack of fulfilment, or a transition to a new role or career can take a toll on your mental health. It’s not uncommon to feel like there is no one to turn to for help in addressing difficult bosses, finding purpose in your work, or figuring out if a career move is the right one for you.

Therapy can provide the support you need to navigate these challenges. We can help you find greater balance in your life, recognize your personal strengths, and gain clarity on how to best address difficult situations you might be facing.
