Holistic Psychotherapy

Holistic psychotherapy addresses the whole person, physically, menthally, emotionally and spiritually. Holistic interventions may include referrals to specialists such as naturopaths, massage therapists, education professionals and personal trainers to help clients address their concerns through multiple levels of healing.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a form of CBT.  DBT skills are thought to assist with regulating emotions, tolerating distress and negative emotions, being mindful and present in the given moment and communicating and interacting  effectively with others.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is among the most popular and best-researched approaches to therapy. CBT focuses on changing maladaptive thoughts and behaviors and is especially helpful in treating anxiety, OCD, depression, social skills deficits, and eating disorders.  

Community Resiliency Model (CRM)

The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) provides skills for self-care and to share with your community. It teaches you how to balance a nervous system impacted by personal or community-level trauma.

The easily learned and shared techniques give you the skills to restore and increase resiliency.

You will learn wellness skills designed to help you track your nervous system in order to bring the body, mind, and spirit back into greater balance.

Trauma Resliency Model (TRM)

The Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM®) developed by Elaine Miller-Karas, LCSW and Laurie Leitch, PhD is a body-centered approach which explores the biology of fear and threat and the autonomic, natural defensive responses that occur when faced with a life-threatening and/or dangerous situation.  TRM focuses on resiliency and how to restore balance to the body and the mind after traumatic experiences.



Parts therapy is the concept that our personality is composed of a number of various parts from our subconscious. This treatment is particularly useful for someone who has experienced unresolved trauma. Parts Therapy can also help resolve internal conflicts, even after a client fails to respond to traditional techniques. The patient-centered approach uses the patient’s own ability to resolve their inner conflicts.

Guided Therapeutic Imagery

This technique uses therapist-led guided visualizations to help clients develop relaxation skills, release anger and trauma, change dysfunctional thought patterns and improve the quality of their daily lives. Guided visualizations can also be used by clients outside of therapy for relaxation and improved attention span and can also help with sleep issues.


What is truly special about inner child work is its intention to speak to our inner child through their language, a language that is emotionally based and embodied, rather than expressed through intellectual thoughts and words. 

Our inner child is a representation of ourselves at multiple points in our childhood, and we can have inner children from various ages. By healing our inner child, we begin to create the safety and security our younger selves have always needed. 


Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. There’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain. 

Meditation is a mental exercise that involves relaxation, focus, and awareness.  Studies confirm the experience of millions of practitioners: meditation will keep you healthy, help prevent multiple diseases, make you emotionally well.
