We all desire to discover and live out of the best parts of who we are. But sometimes we want to explore those parts of ourselves where we have struggle or pain. Perhaps you need help stopping unhealthy patterns or behaviours.
Therapy can make a difference – whether you are experiencing the negative impacts of trauma, struggling with an unhealthy behaviour or addiction, or seeking new tools to be the best version of yourself.
What We can help with:
Anxiety: Anxiety is something we all experience – it’s an inevitable part of life but there are times when it interferes with living. Overwhelming anxiety can lead to symptoms such as sleep difficulties, intrusive thoughts, avoidance behaviours, or the misuse of drugs or alcohol. The good news is that there is help for anxiety. There are numerous tools that can help you lower debilitating anxiety, conquer your fears, and help you enjoy your life more fully.
Depression: Depression is associated with a sense of hopelessness or having no solution to a difficult situation. It can lead to a loss of interest in life and a deep sense of isolation. It can leave you feeling caught in a cycle of negative thinking, despair, and hopelessness. Therapy is about finding where hope still exists and building on it. Therapy can help connect you to what still works in your life as well as exploring the places of struggle.
Grief and loss: Grief is very much a part of living but we tend to avoid grieving our losses. Often, unhealthy behaviours or addictions are an attempt to avoid our grief. Allowing ourselves to grieve losses instead of denying or minimizing them is how we heal from the past and move forward into hope and new possibilities.
Although face-to-face counselling is optimal, there are situations where that is not possible. We utilize a secure online therapy platform. Online or telephone sessions might be an option if you:
Live outside of the Vancouver area
Have health issues that make traveling difficult
Have commitments that prevent office sessions
