 Our therapists are trauma-informed and have specialized training in: 
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy - This type of therapy uses self-reflection to help individuals gain insight into the roots of their present-day problems by evaluating the patterns they have developed over time. It uses the relationship between therapist and client as a window into problematic relationship patterns with self and others. 
  • Jungian Depth Psychotherapy – This therapy focuses on mindfulness, dreams, images and meaningful coincidences to help individuals become aware of what has been cast out of consciousness and to help reintegrate it. 
  • Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) – This therapy works to re-organize emotional responses – by helping individuals examine their attachment styles and build better emotional regulation, resilience and agency.
  • EMDR treatment – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. This therapy enables people to heal from traumatic flashbacks and memories that have been caused by disturbing life experiences. 

Rates
  • $75.00 - 200.00 a 50 minute session depending on the therapist you choose.
