EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) was originally developed to treat trauma, however research shows that non-life threatening events can still generate post-traumatic like symptoms. EMDR Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that can now be applied to a variety of issues, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, pain management or the effects of being raised in a dysfunctional family. These kinds of cumulative or prolonged experiences are now being referred to as developmental or complex trauma.
I have seen first hand the fast-acting, seemingly magical healing potential of EMDR Therapy both as a consumer as well as a practitioner of it and am excited to share it with clients.
Sex Therapy is a talk-based form of therapeutic counselling that specifically addresses sexual issues and any contributing emotional factors in a supportive and educational environment. Sex therapists are knowledgeable about the physiological processes that are a part of human sexuality and when necessary will work collaboratively with physicians, medical specialists or other kinds of healers to address physical concerns. Sex therapy can be done individually or with couples, though even when partnered it is not always necessary to work with a couple as a unit.
We live in a culture that teaches us that if a couple feels love for one another, then that should be enough to sustain their relationship till death do them part. In actuality, love is a practice and in order for it to succeed, it requires effort, patience, flexibility and courage. No one taught us that our most precious and intimate of relationships can and will reveal our earliest wounding. Places where our needs did not get met in childhood become activated when we enter into relationships with one another and we can lash out, get defensive, withdraw, feel needy.. The art of being in relationship then is to become aware of these raw spots and learn to heal and grow together. When we have the courage to go on this journey with one another, we are rewarded with a most profound and sacred connection.
I offer couples therapy for a wide range of relationships issues, including:
*Improving communication skills
*Struggling with the aftermath of infidelity
*A lack of sexual intimacy or sexual disconnection
*Encouraging & strengthening the emotional bond between you
