>Male Survivors: I have attended specialized training for working with interpersonal trauma, in specific, working with male survivors of sexual abuse. Men can experience anger, shame, sexual dysregulation, depression, and denial. Coping strategies of sex, drugs, alcohol, and rage are common ways of surviving. However, the creative and inventive ways in which we survive childhood trauma can begin to interfere with the life that we want for ourselves. The coping strategies can then becomes our distress.
>Individual Therapy: I have specialized and advanced training in the area of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have extensive experience working both in groups and individually with individuals who have experienced trauma from MVA, war, natural disasters, and interpersonal trauma stemming from adverse childhood experience into adulthood. I provide individual therapy in-person and via web counselling. I work with men and women ages 16 +. A variety of therapy tools will be used to help individuals reach their optimal emotional, relational, and psychological well-being.
>EMDR Therapy: I am passionate about the use of EMDR therapy. I have witnessed clients make significant changes in their ability to manage past traumatic events. This mode of therapy is promoted with clients when there is a trauma history and is a highly effective approach to healing.
